We can’t get enough! Scroll on to see what we mean by these gorgeous photos.
«We met through mutual friends but it was our love for working out that initially sparked our friendship! Sotiri had asked me out on a gym date and we really bonded over our love for fitness. Our friendship blossomed into something more mature as we got to know each other and found that we shared similar values around the importance of family, our love for Greece, and most importantly, we both knew every lyric in all of the Pantelidis songs. Fast forward 5 years later, Sotiri got down on one knee during our 2020 trip to British Colombia, Canada where he proposed on a bridge that looks out to a breathtaking panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains. I had no idea that he was going to propose to me in British Colombia, seeing as we were supposed to go to Greece that summer…but Covid-19 was quite the curveball that summer! As he was getting down on one knee, I had a million thoughts racing through my mind, such as whether or not he was pulling a prank on me, in which case I would’ve killed him, and also trying to simultaneously battle my fear of heights, as we were 100 something meters off the ground! All these thoughts fled my mind when he presented a stunning ring and asked me to marry him. I nervously replied, “Did you ask my dad?” and then proceeded to cup my trembling hands together as I was terrified that the ring would fall between the cracks of the bridge. Thankfully all went smoothly, and together with the encouraging cheers of the nearby tourists and Sotiri’s brother who was playing the role of a photographer that day, I finally responded, “YES!”», Katerina shared with us.

You’ll experience some great bonding moments with your future husband, family, and friends. Wedding planning takes a lot of work but doesn’t have to be stressful. Stay organized and try to do break everything into small tasks. Coronavirus has definitely forced us to simplify some of our visions but in a positive way, it’s allowed us to focus on the most important aspects of the wedding…the traditions, our loved ones, and the religious ceremony or “Mystirio” as we say in Greek, that represents the union of two people».
