More from the Cyprus wedding. The party went on long into the evening, as I said in my previous post, and there was no shortage of creative cocktail concoctions. I can’t recall what this one was called, but everyone seemed to love them. As I do at most receptions, I asked the bartenders if I could stand next to them for a little while. Not only is it a great way to capture the action from a unique perspective, I always have a captive audience!
While I love shooting weddings here in the Eugene area, getting away from Oregon’s winter weather is great …especially if one ends up in the warm, sunny climes of Cyprus! Lucia and Sjoord (he’s Dutch, she’s a Dutch Cypriot) were married along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. After the ceremony each guest was afforded a chance to light one of these miniature hot air balloons and watch it take flight over the moonlit water. I can’t imagine this being legal here in the States, especially in Oregon during a long hot summer, but they surely looked spectacular as they trailed out along the night sky.
