Tiffany and Vasilis, a couple who are both originally from Greece, were married on a brisk January day in New Jersey. Their Gorgeous Greek wedding was a nonstop day filled with love, lots of emotion and a ton of dancing and shots. The couple was able to bring their Greek culture into a variety of details in the wedding.
Tiffany wore a huge dropped waist taffeta ballgown with gorgeous horse-hair trim, while her maids stunned in deep burgundy floor length gowns. The maid of honor was able to have her own dress design, that subtly stood out from the rest in the most perfect way. Another very special detail of the day was that Tiffany was able to honor her late Father by including a picture of him on her bouquet. Their reception was held at Lambert Castle and it looked like quite the party: with dancing, drinks, and even an ice sculpture, everyone was on their feet and having a blast!
How did you two meet?
We are both from the same island in Greece and we met there one summer while on vacation with our families. We had an amazing summer together and decided to start dating, even though we would be dating long distance between Florida and New Jersey.
How did he/she propose?
He proposed on one of our summer vacations in Greece. He brought me up to one of our favorite spots, on top of a mountain with beautiful views, and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!
