Pet people are the best – extra kudos to DOG people. 🙂 Danny and Maria have an adorable Alaskan Klee Kai named Arya and when Danny met Sledder, my Siberian Husky, (essentially just a larger version of Arya) it all clicked together!
Danny and Maria’s Black Swan Country Club wedding was full of energy, love and really big cheek-squishing hugs. I love Greek weddings for this reason – the intense emphasis on family and culture. This wedding was no ordinary Greek wedding though, there were so many elements that I’ll never forget – like having standing room only at the ceremony because Danny and Maria were loved by THAT many people, and heart-shaped Boston creme donuts+munchkins and Dunkin Donuts’ iced coffee during the reception, AND an overwhelming performance by Efi Thodi – a famous Greek pop singer that Danny and Maria flew in from Greece. The surprised look on their guests’ faces was priceless.
