Daughter of Samurai's Big Fat Greek Wedding: The Movie

Samurai Appliance Repair Man

1,549 views

My daughter got married September 2 this year in Syracuse, NY. It was a Big Fat Greek wedding just like in the eponymous movie. I'm half Greek and half white :blinky: so my family contributed a little, watered-down Greekness. But my daughter married into a huge and very Greek family.

The reception was a blast: open bar with beer, wine, mixed drinks; live Greek band; lots of Greek dancing, partying and having a good time. There was so much prep leading up to the wedding that I got behind my other work and have been playing catch-up for the last month. I think things are finally getting back to normal.

Anyway, here's a movie my all-white wife put together of some shots from the wedding and reception along with a cool Avett Brothers soundtrack. Some of these pics you may have already seen in the album I posted in the Gallery at this site, but there are a lot more in the movie. Enjoy!

Domo, kdog! It was a beautiful wedding and a great time-- everything flowed along perfectly. Most of Niko's family were right there in Syracuse. But I had family come in from all over: Atlanta, Lansing (Michigan), Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston... so it was also a family reunion. Good times., good times!

Excellent point, Dimitri! I should have said I'm half white and half proto-white. ;)

Dimitri is a good Orthodox name; are you Greek or Russian?
