The wedding we are sharing today with you took place this summer in the beautiful island of Chios. An impressive bride in her stunning Maria Konidi wedding dress and a groom that never stopped smiling took our breaths away! And the same will happen to you the moment you will read their story.
“I met Nikos 10 years ago, at a business conference. I was the first to talk as I wanted to give him tips for a trip he was going to take to Chios, the island I grew up. 10 years later, what makes me incredibly happy is the fact that he loves the island the same way I do. A month after that first meeting we went out for a date and from that afternoon I just couldn’t imagine my life without him”, Efi told us. On the other hand, Nikos told us: “I had just started working for the same company she was working for and it was the first conference we attended together. To my eyes, she was already special because of her beauty and her unique smile. As I got to know her better I fell in love with the combination of her beauty, smartness, power and her soul”.
“The wedding proposal happened on 16th of June 2015… I had to fly abroad the next day and he keep insisted on going out for dinner. There he gave me a memory card that I used it on my camera (I always carry my camera with me) and inside it there was a picture that wrote on light painting “marry me?”. As I found out it took him many hours to take it in the roof of our home. I was so touched, because he knows the love I have for photography. It reminded me 10 years ago, on our first date he took me to an ethic restaurant that I had mentioned I loved, while he would have preferred a beer pub!”.
The couple had its weddinging Chios, of course and the colors they chose were white and gold, elegant and eternal. “I wanted to have the island’s scent as well like the favors at the church, the hydrangeas and the peonies and of course the guest favors! The most beautiful memory of our wedding was the moment we realized that 150 friends from Greece and abroad traveled to the island for our wedding. Having all the people we love on our favorite beach, our favorite bar and on our wedding was just magical!”.
When we asked Efi for the first time she saw her wedding dress her answer was: “It was the first I tried on… and it was love at first sight because it was exactly what I have dreamed of! When I first saw our wedding pictures I was at work and I just couldn’t stop smiling. Nikos called me from his office and he was as excited as I was. It was very important for us to keep our memories alive and I very happy that we trusted Chris”.
From the moment we first saw the couple’s wedding we were so impressed and we just couldn’t stop looking at them. What we will keep Efi’s advice for all future brides to be:
“Do your wedding the way you imagined it and have the less stress possible. Live every moment, from the proposal to your wedding day …to await pleasure is pleasure itself!».
Well said and even better done Efi!
