No big, fat Greek weddings here…instead we have a big, GORGEOUS Greek wedding and one of the most stylish brides to date. Perfect for SMP Fashion Week. She is completely owning that fabulous Vera Wang gown and her veil…beyond. Captured by Allegro Photography, Niko and Viki’s wedding was the culmination of such a sweet courtship and they have their godmothers to thank for it. Too cute. Be sure to read the story below. It will warm your heart, I promise, and don’t forget to stop by the wedding gallery for even more images from this stunning affair.
Viki and Niko would never have met if it weren’t for the wish of Viki’s godmother to help her find someone special. The fact that she had intended to introduce Viki to a different man altogether is, of course, besides the point. As it happened when Viki’s godmother brought her to a dance to meet the intended special someone, they ran into her godmother’s dear friend who also happened to be good friends with Niko and his family. On the spot, the two matchmakers decided to change the plan, and brought Viki and Niko together. The rest is history…
After their first date at Fugakyu in Brookline, they enjoyed a wonderful courtship, getting to know each other’s family and friends and falling deeply in love. Niko proposed on July 26, 2008 at the St. George Hotel’s rooftop restaurant in Athens, Greece.
Given the season (December), Viki chose burgundy as her primary color with accents of cream and gold. She brought special touches to her day with many Greek traditions incorporated into their celebration, such as writing the names of unwed girlfriends on the bottom of her shoe. Viki and Niko now share their anniversary day with Niko’s parents and honored them at the reception with photos from their wedding as well as their own cake.
Viki and Niko’s day was “almost perfect” and they are just fine with that. They couldn’t have been happier celebrating in an absolutely gorgeous church, then overlooking the city with amazing views, surrounded by so many of their loved ones, including their beautiful 5 month old son, who stole the show in his tiny tux.
