Mykonos… I can never get enough of this island. Every time I am there, I am thrilled as if it were the first time. The Cycladic colours, the dazzling sunlight, the traditional architecture, and the natural beauty of the wild rocky landscape make this island one of my favourite destinations. I had been looking forward to Kara & Anthony’s wedding for almost a year. They are a beautiful, easygoing couple and I knew from the very first moment that their wedding on the island of the winds would be magical. Their pleasant, relaxed attitude, their lovely family, and all their great friends kept the vibe high! And their story had all those ingredients that can turn a wedding experience into a fairytale that you want to live again and again.
The pre-wedding party started ideally with a sailing trip around Mykonos and ended with dinner in “Avli tou Thodori”, one of the most popular restaurants on the island, famous for its exquisite Greek cuisine dishes. The Jewish wedding took place in one of the newest and most elegant venues in Mykonos, “Pasaji”. Caterina Vogli and her awesome Mood Effects team had taken care of everything, including the superb wedding decoration both at the ceremony and at the reception. The party turned out to be a huge success, partly thanks to a pleasant surprise: an amazing saxophonist and a particularly talented singer, plus a terrific DJ, who had everybody dancing all night long! But this was not the end. The day after the wedding we all gathered at the beach restaurant “Kuzina” and the party started all over again!
It was the first Jewish wedding I was shooting and the experience was just awesome! I was impressed by the chair dance and the glass breaking traditions. The love and joy that radiated from the couple and the positive energy of everyone present created a wonderful atmosphere. As far as I am concerned, the whole experience has given me the best memories of this summer! And it was a real pleasure to have the opportunity to work with the videographer Stam Tsop, who has the skill to capture a story in the most natural and calm way.
Kara & Anthony, thank you with all my heart for allowing me to share this unforgettable experience with you. i already miss you and all the awesome friends of yours! I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
