Reischea & Alex's Wedding

Reischea and Alexandros were married on August 30, 2008 in Fresno. The couple traveled from New York to Reischea's hometown to celebrate their union along with guests from as far as Canada and Greece. The wedding day was rich in Greek tradition, following Alex's cultural heritage. Reischea is a woman of many talents and looked stunning and graceful. Sports fans may recognize her as a New York and ESPNews sportscaster, but she is also an incredible dancer and can even deliver a thank you speech in Greek. She, along with her loving family made everyone feel welcome and at home. We can see why this couple fell in love (and why Reischea didn't mind sharing her aisle on return flight from NY with Alex and his friends the night the couple met).

The wedding day started with a hoops game for the guys and bridal preparations for the ladies, followed by a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony. The reception was lovely and held at Fort Washington County Club. The festivities started with a duet of "The Prayer" followed by dinner, toasts and a special video presentation from the couple. Dancing was a highlight of the evening with everyone dancing to all styles of music from salsa to R&B to modern dance music. However, the Greek music was incredible and the couple and families performed many of the traditional Greek wedding dances, which continued late into the night. Oopah!
