Pamela and Ted

When Ted and Pamela celebrate their first wedding anniversary next year, they will also be celebrating 10 years together !!  This adorable american couple flew a long way to this tiny island, for the first time ever... put all their trust in My Greek Wedding Planners and left here 100% satisfied with their dream wedding ....



...."We found ourselves bored and frustrated with the traditional wedding plans and one day he jokingly suggested that we run away to Greece. It sounded so good that we started searching for wedding planners in Greece just to get an idea. We contacted several companies on various islands. Via email I could tell that Teresa and Kostas spoke perfect English, which made it easier for them to understand exactly what I wanted. They also answered my questions quickly and offered a lot of flexibility and creativity with the packages......"

......."Ted and I were sightseeing and as we posed for a picture together, surrounded by Christmas lights and decorations, he knelt down, held out a ring and asked me to marry him. I said YES of course!....."

So, they packed their bags, along with both parents and Ted's sister and made their way to Kefalonia airport... all seemed well to this point, until they realised TWO bags were missing....

...."They (MGW) spent an afternoon with me calling airlines after my luggage was lost. I don't know what I would have done without them that day. Although they had many other weddings that week, we felt like we were their only customers......"

What were their first impressions of Kefalonia??

......"We arrived at night and rented a van for our one hour drive to our villa. We had only a flashlight and amazingly specific directions. As "city folk" from America we were honestly a little nervous at that point. But, the directions were perfect, we found our beautiful villa and in the morning the sun came up and we found ourselves in paradise! Nothing is more relaxing than breakfast by the pool with a view of the sea, surrounded by flowers and grazing goats on the hill!....."


Ted and Pamela held their wedding ceremony at the chapel at Apostolata Hotel and Spa Resort, in Skala .... a mandolin and guitar player led Pamela and her father to the altar and there they exchanged their vows overlooking the beautiful Ionian Sea....

Ted and Pamela were really like models on their wedding .. and didn't even realise it !! Our hairdresser and makeup artist did a fabulous job on both of them !! and the photos really showed how happy and relaxed they were, even after all the stress of travelling and looking for lost baggage!!

......"Our family that came loved every detail. It's more than the typical wedding. Every vendor that MGW picked was above and beyond marvelous! Those friends and family that could not make it were speechless when they saw the photos. I've gotten many requests for MGW's information......"

Their favourite moment??

....."It is so hard to pick a favorite moment. We had the best of everything: ceremony on a cliff, photos on the sunny beach and dinner in a rustic tavern while it rained. I don't know how they managed it, but they got it all perfect! If we have to pick a favorite moment of the day, for both of us it would probably be taking pictures on the beach..... it was so mcuh fun for the two of us and the pictures came out so amazing that we can look back and remember that experience whenever we want......"

Any advice for future couples??

....."Our best advice, beyond the obvious advice to go with My Greek Weddings, is to plan to be on the island for a week before the wedding, in case of lost luggage or other last minute issues, and to stay for at least a week after the wedding, because believe us, you won't want to leave! Oh, and you will treasure the photos forever so don't hesitate to upgrade for more photos or better packages....."
