Iliana & Massimo's, childhood sweethearts since they where just 18, couldn't imagine their wedding day anywhere else than on the Greek island of Paros.
Iliana, who is Greek, wanted a day filled with sentiment, romance and elegance and Massimo, being Italian, wanted to make sure the night would be fun for them and their guests. The combination was an astounding wedding celebration, that had little bits of Iliana and little bits of Massimo - perfectly combined in just the right measures into a night of celebration not easily forgotten!
Planning started a year and a half before when they visited Paros to meet Mimmika, their wedding planner. Every detail was worked through, with a few laughs thrown in for good measure, and a calming hand when needed - Iliana fully enjoying every moment, and Massimo checking in every now an again with a charming smile and friendly wave from their home in Zurich.
The anticipation was high when the wedding day finally came, and WedFilms was there to capture every moment, happy tear and so much laughter. Vangelis Beltzenitis as the first photographer made sure the couple was at ease while capturing their most beautiful moments, supported by second photographer, Bernard Pretorius.
The boys where in high spirits while getting Massimo ready for his bride. The genuine love and a affection that showed between these friends, making the day that much more special.
Iliana, calm and serene, looked ever the breathtaking bride in her lace gown. The details she chose for her wedding, soft pastel colors, romantic flowers and flickering candlelight everywhere just enhanced her beauty.
After the Catholic ceremony at St Anthony's in Parikia, guests where ushered to the reception for a traditional Greek dinner, followed by what can only be described as a party that rocked! With Showtime boys, Christos & Konstantinos at the decks, Iliana & Massimo tore up the dance floor with their guests. But not before a little surprise performance by their guests that had everyone in hysterics (you'll have to see for yourself in the clip)!
Iliana & Massimo, your wedding day was one of perfection. Not because of the location, the beautiful details and how exquisite you both looked. But because you created the day of your dreams without loosing site of the importance of what the day meant to you - being married, and honouring each other always. The love and respect that you have for each other shone through and made your day that much brighter. The calm and sweet manner you have with each other, is the foundation of this beautiful life that you're building together.
And so, we'd like to give you our most heartfelt congratulations on your marriage - may each happy memory build on the one before for a lifetime of moments you'll fondly look back on and be able to say, we have lived and you where right there by my side!
