Although actress and model Kristine Kelly had spent the day stunt training—working on 50 to 100-foot falls—it didn’t keep her from closing down the restaurant on her first date with Christopher Davis. “We spent hours at the restaurant,” recalls Kristine, who “felt such a special connection that I didn’t want the night to end.”
Four months later, the couple traveled to Paris and it was there that both say they fell “madly in love.” Christopher knew of Kristine’s affinity for French culture and that it was a dream of hers to visit the city. “Every moment in Paris was extremely romantic and I really got to experience Chris’s heart on every level,” says Kristine. “I saw how beautiful and passionate his heart was for me.”
After enduring years of a long-distance relationship—she mainly in L.A., and he in Washington, D.C., and Miami—Christopher’s proposal came during a surprise vacation to St. Barth’s in June of 2010. Although an overcast evening was potentially disrupting his plan for a moonlit proposal, he decided to “push forward with the late-night stroll down the beach and pray for the moonlight to come through an opening in the clouds.” When it did, he dropped to one knee. “Through tears of joy,” recalls Kristine, “I said ‘yes!’” The next night, they celebrated with an engagement party. Unbeknownst to Kristine, her fiancé had flown in a dozen friends just for the occasion.
Wedding planner Julia Nicolaou was able to make the bride’s dream of a romantic outdoor wedding come to life in Santorini, Greece. The location provided the perfect backdrop for the high-fashion themed nuptials. The day before the wedding, the couple threw a casual beach party and mini rehearsal to welcome their 50 guests.
Kristine’s custom Ines Di Santo gown took Christopher’s breath away when he saw her for the first time at the 6 p.m. ceremony. For the reception, the bride changed into a dress that she had designed and again blew away her husband with a surprise: she had written her vows into a song. “It was a magical moment,” she recalls, “singing it for him for the first time in front of all of our guests.” Adds Christopher: “It was by far and away the most special moment of my life, and I completely broke down. It was incredibly heartfelt and emotionally charged.”
For their first dance, the couple put their lessons to use and wowed guests with “Nefeli’s Tango,” performed live by Marina Dimitriou and her band. Fireworks capped the night. “It was a beautiful way to publicly celebrate us,” says Kristine. “It was a picture-perfect weekend,” adds Christopher, “and a luxurious experience for everyone.”
The newlyweds are planning an Italian honeymoon for the spring. In the meantime, finally living together, Kristine says that she and Chris are enjoying “keeping our romance alive with fun surprises and seeing our hearts grow with passion every moment we get to spend with each other.”

Η Μαρία και ο Steve, ήρθαν από την Αμερική στην Μύκονο για τον γάμο τους.
Ελληνοαμερικάνα η Μαρία και σκοτσέζος ο Steve. Οι περισσότεροι καλεσμένοι φορούσαν Kilt, την παραδοσιακή στολή της σκοτίας. Η νύφη ήταν ντυμένη με ένα υπέροχο νυφικό, ραμμένο από μια φίλη της.Γνωρίσαμε τους καλεσμένους την προηγούμενη του γάμου, σ’ ένα απίστευτο πάρτι, σ’ ένα beach bar.Το ζευγάρι ετοιμάστηκε στο ξενοδοχείο St. John Hotel, όπου και φιλοξενούνταν και όλοι οι καλεσμένοι. Ο γάμος τελέστηκε στο μικρό, ρομαντικό εκκλησάκι του ξενοδοχείου, όπου ο γαμπρός περίμενε την νύφη υπό τους ήχος μιας σκοτσέζικης γκάιντας. Μετά το μυστήριο ακολούθησε cocktail και δείπνο στην πισίνα του ξενοδοχείου, που εξελίχτηκε σε ξέφρενο party μέχρι το πρωί.
Maria and Steve came from the Sates to Mykonos for their wedding. She is Greek American and he is Scottish, and that is how most of the guest and the groom himself were dressed in kilts, the traditional Scottish wearing. Maria was wearing an amazing wedding dress made by a friend of hers. We met the guests the day before the wedding during a crazy beach bar party. The couple got dressed at St. John Hotel, were also all the guests were staying. The wedding took place at the small romantic chapel of the hotel, where the groom waited for the bride to arrive under the sound of Scottish live music. After the wedding everybody was invited for cocktails and dinner next to the hotels swimming pool. After the dinner everybody danced and the party finished only when the daylight came…..
The wedding planer was Katerina Vogli www.moodseffects.gr

Tuesday, January 01, 2013He had it all figured out and fooled me for quite a while.
Sjaak is a very unpredictable person and definitely full of surprises.We traveled to Brasil in December 2012 and in our first day while I was in the hairdresser, he went to my dad’s house and asked my dad “the permission” for my hand. My dad hid the ring for over 2 weeks and kept it all a secret. Just like Sjaak did because absolutely no one knew.We went to Aline’s beachhouse for new years and at midnight, with everybody, the fireworks and the champagne, he went on his knee and said a whole bunch of sweet things including, would you like to marry me?
