Big, Fat, Greek-American Wedding

Pete n Megan get marriedNo, it wasn’t me, ladies.

That wailing noise is the sound of all the broken-hearted girls as brother Peter left the market for good. He married his beautiful bride, Megan Barnes, on Saturday the 2nd of October. Froboy was honored to be one of Pete’s two Best Men. He was on ‘stefana’, while cousin Takis Morris was on ‘rings’. The rings are exchanged during the first half of The Sacrament of Marriage – The Service of Betrothal, which celebrates the engagement of the man and woman. The stefana are crowns , connected by a ribbon, and placed on the heads of the betrothed during the second half – The Marriage Service. They symbolize the “oneness” of the couple.

It was a lavish affair of 250 or so people. The ceremony taking place at St Louis’ Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, with Father Doug presiding. The reception was at the picturesque St Albans Country Club, generously hosted by Mr and Mrs Dennis Barnes. The happy couple is now honeymooning on the Greek Island of Santorini, before they move on to Crete and the lux Elounda Beach Hotel. Then finally to Athens for a day and a half to celebrate with Peter’s Greek family.

Na Zisoune!
