The Legend of Roo, Summer Boogaloo II (56k warning mebbe)

So I finally got around to figuring out how to ftp photos to my little Greek webpage, of my big, fat, Greek (Cypriot in this case) wedding.

We had some problems with my paperwork and your basic government red tape in Greece, so we went to Cyprus where they were more than happy to marry us (on a cliff side, overlooking a beautiful cove). Since we had to stay there a week to do paperwork as well, we turned it into a honeymoon, with the wedding in the middle.

It was amazing. Beautiful. Everybody cried. Yes, me too. And I highly recommend getting married in Cyprus. Scenery is idealic. They have the wedding industry of Las Vegas, meaning they're all set up to take care of every last little thing, and every person on the island, from the passport control, to the taxi, to the hotel, to the townhall (paperwork), to the Ministry of Justice (more stamping of paperwork) were absolutely lovely to us.

Anyways, this thread is useless without the pics I cropped and re-sized in one minute, with no real uh skillz. Here you go.

The throwing of the rice:

The signing of the marriage license:

Relaxing with champagne at The Cliff Bar in the interlude before dinner:

Her wedding dress was in no way meant to hide our pride and joy (5 months pregnant with our little girl).
We couldn't be happier.

To all who've been following and support this whole little saga of ya all.

You crazy crazy like a fox bastard..


Congrats Roo! Such a great ending (well, not really a total ending... just a movie cutaway) to your story!

Awesome! Live the dream Roo!

Story. Book. Romance.

You just made a cynical bastard cry a tear of joy. You go, Roo.

Cyprus kicks ass.. my favorite place in the whole world..


I should be in Greece over Christmas.. lets try and get together for dinner or something.

The Book of Goodjer needs an update again. Congrats.

Congrats! You both look great, and the view there looks awesome.

I've only been with GWJ for about 6 months now but I read your story from the beginning and I'm really impressed. Congratulations to you and your lovely bride! It just goes to show you that sometimes the greatest rewards in life are only available to those who go out on a limb and take a risk. You did just that and it's paid for itself in spades. Enjoy Fatherhood Roo - it's been the greatest adventure of my life and my beautiful wife and I couldn't be happier.

1 year 5 weeks. That's frickin' awesome. Double congrats on the wedding and gene pool contribution.

Life truly works in mysterious ways.

Way to go! Amazing stuff, make sure you post baby pics

Well, I'll be damned. I'll be very damned. Congratulations, Roo- you done us proud.

Congrats on your marriage, Roo! You both look so lovely and happy in your pics (well, except for her in that one where you're signing the marriage liscence--though, granted, it is pretty difficult to look enthusiastic about signing a piece of paper). You're right; the scenery IS gorgeous.


I guess the obvious question is: when does the first season of your reality show start on MTV?

Wow amazing. You could write a novel and make a movie out of your life. I'm glad everything has turned out for the better.

Huzzah! Now to find an appropriate smiley... IMAGE(

Eh, close enough!

Congratulations to you both, Roo.

This has been an incredible story to follow. Congratulations!

Makes me want to get divorced and run off to Greece.

Congratulations, Roo. I'll drink a beer to you, your beautiful bride and soon-to-be child this evening.

Well, I'll be damned. I'll be very damned. Congratulations, Roo- you done us proud.

Hell yes.

Roo, you are a god among men.

Congrats buddy.

Way to go Roo! So who do they have lined up to play you in the movie version of your life? I vote John Travolta.

Congrats to both you and your beautiful wife, Roo. And by the look of the two of you, your daughter's going to be a heart-breaker when she grows up!

You're living the dream of a LOT of people, by the way, in case you haven't figured that out. Just sayin'.

Congrads Roo. I am extremely happy and proud of you for having the faith and courage to go through with all of this, as I know when you first seperated you were quite unsure of what the world had in store for you. Yours is an inspiring story that will be sung with much glory and honour in taverns all over the world

Amazing. Amazing! Truly a fairy tale in the best possible way. Enjoy, Roo.

Yes, fresher the better. Make sure to get the machine that goes PING!

Wow... This beautiful story started when I just joined the GWJ community, and it keeps getting better

Need to pay for the honeymoon and wedding? Sell the rights to your story to Hollywood, and you've got a nice baby room to boot

Congrats! I think it is a lovely dress

I'm so, so delighted for both of you, Roo. I hope that you'll always be as happy together as you are right now. Congratulations!

Congratulations Roo! Wonderful end to your Greece adventure. Well, not end, but another chapter!

I am smiling so much right now.

You guys look incredibly happy, congratulations! I just admire your courage and your belief in joy, Roo. All the best.

Congratulations and best of luck to you three!
