I met Themis at the University of Maine, where we both studied for an MBA. Rali and I visited him and his fiancee, Elena, at their home in Limassol, Cyprus, in September 1996, then went back to Limassol for their wedding in November 1997. It was a lovely wedding in a Greek Orthodox church. The ceremony was similar to a Bulgarian Orthodox wedding ceremony, except that we couldn't understand a word of it, of course. Here we are together at the reception. Clockwise from top left are Themis, Rali, me, and Elena.
Before the reception dinner was a reception cocktail, and eventually Themis and Elena cut the wedding cake. We thought we'd get a photo by the cake before it was sliced. But the icing was made of some hardened-frosting substance that Themis and Elena couldn't even force the knife through, although they sure looked dangerous leaning on the knife together and trying.
I love this picture. We arrived a couple minutes early at the church, so we had time to wait.
