Our Big Fat Greek Wedding Reception

At the reception on our wedding day, our good friends Rick and Ginger Coffman brought a tray of Baklava which they had purchased in a Tarpon Springs bakery. Besides the Baklava, we also had a beautiful tray of another Greek food, homemade spinach pie, which our friend and neighbor, Ted Ciske, brought. These trays certainly added to the festivities at our “big fat Greek wedding reception.” Well, at least half of the wedding party was Greek. The rest of the food and drink were organized and presented by our friend and hostess, Kathy Fink. When the reception ended, we still had quite a bit of fruit, some vegetables with dip, and some leftover Baklava. After we had our fill, we planned to take the remainder of the Baklava to the church for the Sunday after-service reception. However, we could find no large tray that we could use so decided instead to give the remainder of the treat away to friends. Dimitris took some to our neighbors across the street, Jim Edwards and Gaetan Gravel. He saved enough to give some to our wonderful pastor, Candace Shultis, who had performed our ceremony, and the last piece he took to the county clerk who had legalized our marriage license.
