The Wedding Day
Gabrielle and Stavro have been together for 10 years, they have been living together, traveling together, and working together so they were basically living as a married couple. Gabrielle is a pure Canadian girl, and Stavro a proud Greek gentleman, with origins from Kalamata, Peloponnese who was born and raised in Canada. The couple decided to host their wedding in Oitylo, an hour and a half outside of Kalamata, in the area of Mani.
The venue we chose for the ceremony and dinner was a stone built 4-star resort, which was built in the perfect location, on a hill overlooking the ocean. A few days before the wedding the Canadian guests arrived to stay in Kalamata. They enjoyed the traditional life spending some time at the beach and participated in the family festivities
The day before the wedding most guests had arrived in Oitylo, and spent their day under the shiny sun of Mani, next to the swimming pool along with amazing cocktails.
The day of the wedding, the couple had their first look, and soon after their symbolic ceremony took place in front of their friends and families.
Post Wedding Grape Stomp
The couple had an amazing idea to have their wedding portraits taken the day after the wedding in Kalamata, during the grape stomping ceremony that the groom's family was preparing just like every year! This was such a fun activity with all friends and family, and of course, there was a second part of the photo shoot with just the newlyweds and a vineyard
