Chris and I had the pleasure of attending one of his good friends wedding in Greece and wow.what a beautiful ceremony‚ The Greek Orthodox service was amazing beautiful, rich in old customs, symbols and culture. I had such a wonderful time and promise to post some more photos of our time in Kalamata soon.
The Groom waits outside of the church with all the guests for the bride to arrive. He’s holding her bouquet which he will give to her before they go into the church together‚
That’s him smiling as his bride is stepping out of the car.
Isn’t she stunning‚ I think Chris would agree. Look at that grin!
The ceremony began with chanting and singing and the entire thing was in Ancient Greek.
The priest blessed these crowns and placed them on Chris and Astrini.
Then Astrini‚Äôs sister switched the crowns there times back and forth..
They are drinking from what is called the common cup.
Then they both walked around the alter three times, taking their first steps as man and wife‚Ä¶walking side by side as they should do through their life together.
One final blessing.
And then a kiss of congratulations‚Ä¶
Thanks guys a million! It was beautiful.
