We first met Thomas and Vassiliki at MaYia’s wedding that we were glad to have covered back in 2016 at Naxos , the beautiful island of Kyklades. They knew the quality of our work and our philosophy on wedding videography, so in our first meeting for their own wedding, we had time to talk about how they met, the wedding proposal, the wedding plan and all the wedding details. Everything was carefully planned!
The wedding celebrations started a day before the ceremony with a beach party at Cape Sounio. Friends and family enjoyed the beautiful sea and the food and they relaxed playing games – they even played football! It was a successful pre-wedding party with tons of laughs and dancing until late at night and the perfect warming up for the big day, their wedding day!
If you have been to Cape Sounio even once, you know that it is a magical place! You get the feeling of being on a Greek island although you haven’t left Attica. The ancient Temple of Poseidon with its glory adds to this almost mystical atmosphere. Under this bright light, the wedding preparations started in two separate studios of the same hotel. In the one studio, Thomas friends shaved the groom according the tradition. The result, as usual, was shaving foam all over the groom and laughter. Friends and family were having fun like children, laughing and speaking loudly. At the same time, in a totally different mood at the other studio, Vassiliki was getting ready with some help from her beautiful girlfriends. She wore her wedding dress and everyone in the room got emotional.
A little church at Palaia Fokea dedicated to Panagia Katafygiotissa was an excellent choice for the wedding ceremony. Guests were holding white balloons to release during Vassiliki’s arrival. Thomas gave the signal “She’s here!” and immediately the sky was full of balloons, like the hearts of the couple was full of joy and happiness! These little movements and the lovely speech at the end of the wedding ceremony added to the strong emotions of the day.
The happy new weds had more surprises yet to come! A summer party was set up at the hotel’s garden under the summer moon and with the carefully chosen tunes by George Misirlis! The first surprise was for Thomas. Vassiliki dedicated him the song “Stand by me” that was performed live by her singer cousin. The second one was for Vasilliki. Thomas surprised her with a heartwarming speech that brought tears to the eyes. The final surprise was for the guests. Many colorful fireworks light up the summer sky, from the decks of George came the first notes of the song…. “ I got a feeling….that tonight is gonna be a good night…” and a crazy party was officially started!
It was more than a good night! It was a perfect minimal, summer wedding and unforgettable experience for all, the couple, the guest and for us, too.
It was hard to put all those sweet and fun moments in a 3 minute video. We are happy that we made it and we would love to share it with you so you can experience all those feelings through our eyes!
