Stars, Stripes, and a Stunning Cyprus Wedding
At the stunning St George church , Cyprus, two people in love came together to tie the knot in a blissful union. But on this momentous day, not only did two beautiful hearts come together, two counties came together! Courtney and Alex came all the way from Washington D.C to say their vows in a captivating location in front of their family and friends. Alex is obviously very close to and very proud of his Greek roots and with a mother and father hailing from Cyprus, the couple chose this location for their special day.
It was an honoured for me to shoot this Cyprus wedding , this was a wedding that had it all – a fairy tale wedding with a handsome Greek groom and a stunning American bride, Zorbas dancing, and the salty island breeze flowing beneath a summer sky. This was a multicultural wedding that fused Cyprus and America perfectly, but Alex kept traditional Greek values at the heart of this special day. Traditional music, traditional dancing, and a traditional Greek ceremony. A true Greek soul and an all American girl brought guests from both sides of the world. Courtney’s movie star smile and her mesmerizing eyes first made Alex fall in love, but this couple have fun and laughter at the heart of their lives and the love and emotion that was captured in the wedding breakfast speeches touched everyone at the wedding.
Courtney danced all day and all night and the reception venue by the beach at Demetrion restaurant was the ideal setting for Greek music, traditional dancing, and pop and hip hop, as Alex showed us he could span the two countries in dance moves! Guests sipped sumptuous cocktails from Barons Bar as the moon shone and the stars twinkled.
For me, this was the perfect end to summer season weddings.
