When Peter George proposed to Christina Kyriakos in Greece, he gave her a card listing 50 reasons he wanted to marry her, written in Greek, as they watched the sunset and drank champagne atop a castle. Their shared heritage was present throughout their Greek Orthodox ceremony, held at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in New Rochelle, NY, where her grandfather was a priest, and special cultural touches at the waterfront reception at the Belle Haven Club in Greenwich, CT. –Beth Roehrig
