Georgia met Dimitris in Mykonos, in 2008 while working and when they decided to tie the knot last September they couldn’t have picked a more suiting island for their wedding than Mykonos.
“When I first met Dimitris, what really impressed me about him was that he was really sweet and kind”, Georgia told us, while he confided to us that the first thing he was impressed with was her smile.
The wedding proposal took place in Endinburg, right before the year change of 2013, during the New Year’s Eve celebration, with the magical view of the castle and the fireworks. Who could say no to a proposal like that? Georgia said yes without thinking about it twice and so the wedding preparations started.
The bride’s major concern couldn’t be other than the weather, especially since the wedding was taking place in Mykonos island, at a church right next to the sea. Although the weather was not by her side at her wedding day since it was really windy, but that didn’t stop the couple to have a wedding exactly as they had imagined it.
“I felt extremely emotional as I was getting closer to the church accompanied by local musicians and a really funny moment was when during the Isaiah dance our friends patted the groom’s back (in order to prepare him for the heavy-family lifting, like the tradition demands).” Georgia told us. When we asked her if she would change anything at her wedding, she was absolute when she told us NO, she wouldn’t have changed a single thing. “The style of our wedding couldn’t have been anything else than Cycladic and follow all the island traditions. Our six maids of honor (!) decided to all wear dresses in emerald color, so there were green details in the wedding decoration.
“Nikos made an impression to us from the very first time we met him with his kindness, how friendly and professional he was, his sense of humor and the fact that we felt like we knew him for years, like he was part of our family!” The couple chose Nikos to be their wedding photographer because like they told us, they loved his work, he was very cooperative and willing to travel two days before the wedding day, just to be safe in case it was too windy and there were no ships to the island.
What is the advice of sweet Georgia to all the brides-to-be? “Always smile because being nervous or angry will show on your wedding photos!”
