Sophia & Michael’s Breathtaking Island Wedding

Sophia & Michael’s Breathtaking Island Wedding | Greek island lifestyle | Scoop.it

Sophia and Michael met in Athens in 2008 through mutual friends. Six years later, this beautiful couple made their way back to Greece and tied the knot on the stunning island of Kalymnos, which is where the groom’s family is from.

“It was a once in a lifetime experience with our family and friends and Kalymnos resonated with the relaxed wedding we wanted to have. The week prior to the wedding was all about Kalymnos, where we entertained all our guests from days in the sun, eating, drinking and dancing.”

Location: Michael’s family is from the island of Kalymnos and mine is from Thessaloniki and Athens. We are really proud of our Greek heritage and it was important for us both to have a simple, relaxed and ultimately fun wedding.
