THE Wedding

This post is not complete without pictures. But we dont have time to upload yet. Regardless, we HAVE to tell you about the wedding we attended in Santorini.

Lia and Mark were the couple. They put on an event like no other. We feel like we experienced Santorini better on this one day than we could have in a whole week. Here's what we did:

...We made our way down a cliff to a tiny chapel overlookiung the water, where the ceremony took place. All girls were given parsols, guys were given hats - and the drinks were flowing early. Lia was stunning...

...We all rode in convoy on 4-wheelers to the other side of the island. "Just Married" sign included. There was 24 guests.

...We ate an enormous and delicious lunch of Greek Seafood in a gorgeous restaurant in a gorgeous bay. Speeches were lovely and heartfelt. There was several toasts with  Greek Raki. (Never again!!). The setting was perfect.

... We wandered over to a boat that was waiting for us.. and cruised back to our side of the island.

... We stopped along the way to swim in a bay...

... On arrival at shore, we were offered the chance to ride (a) a chairlift or (b) a donkey to the top of the hill. We chose donkeys.

... We walked back to the resort where the wedding party was staying (beautiful views along the way).

... We made it there in time for the amazing Santorini Sunset.

... Then the party continued through the night. 40 x yiros arrived. Cocktails were flowing and the dancing started.

It was one of the best days of our lives and we were so pleased to share it with this fantastic couple. AMAZING!!!!!
