“Real Love Is All About Sacrifice” Rose {+} Dom Greek Wedding Film~Albuquerque Wedding Videographer

Now you know I always love to brag about Albuquerque’s Greek Community! Every time we get asked to film a greek wedding, we always know it’s going to be one crazy and fun night! We had been waiting to film the beautiful Rose’s wedding for years and we were so lucky to finally have had that privilege! We met Rose back when our first Greek Bride, Nicky married her beloved Groom, Billy. Rose sang the funniest maid of honor toast and we knew she was a riot from the get go. Needless to say, her dancing on her uncle’s shoulders at her reception was no surprise….Ok, it was a total surprise but definitely not out of character for Rose. She is incredibly fun loving and spunky. In fact every greek couple we have had the privileged of filming have always been so incredibly loving and gracious towards us. This couple is no different! Rose and Dom met at age 15 on an airplane when they were introduced by mutual friends. When Rose got off the plane, she called one of the friends and said to her “If Dom ever needs a date tell him I am free.” Rose didn’t see Dom again until years later during her first year of college. This same girlfriend called her up and invited her to a party. When Rose started to decline the invitation, this girlfriend said, “Dom will be there.” Rose quickly got changed, went to the party and the rest was history! They celebrated their wedding day at the Greek Orthodox church and danced the night away at The Sheraton of Uptown. We had the sweet opportunity of sneaking the couple up to the roof (champagne waiting and all) for sunset shots with the beautiful Sandia Mountains behind them. Rose served special ice cream sandwiches at the reception in memory of her grandmother. Throughout Rose’s life this Grandmother would bribe her by saying, “Come over… I bought you ice cream sandwiches.” So what better way to honor her than with these. Before her grandmother’s passing she had given Dom her diamond that she wore around her neck daily and told him to put it in Rose’s wedding ring. That is just what he did. Such a special event to be a part of! We are so incredibly happy for you both Rose and Dom! We can’t wait to watch your love continue to grow and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you and your new family! Hugs to you both and Congratulations!! XOXOXO
