Though the television host and her longtime beau tied the knot during a live New Year’s broadcast in December 2017, she wanted a traditional ceremony for her family back in Greece.
In a video posted to her Instagram the 40-year-old explained, “I’ve been planning this for maybe a month, but really I’ve been planning this for a long time in my heart. Because I always wanted to return to Greece and do our wedding here.”
She continued, “Greece means so much to us and our village and our roots and I’m so beyond thankful to all of our friends who put this together.”
Earlier this month, Maria admitted that her dad, Constantinos Menounos, who missed out on the 1st one, was taking the reins on wedding planning for the latest celebration.
Though she told Us Weekly that he was turning into a bit of a “bridezilla,” it appears that in the end, it all worked out in the end!
The happy bride, who donned an intricately crafted dress by Celia Kritharioti, was all smiles as she basked in her special day.
