Kotsopoulos' youngest clan member marries

JK: My brother Jason and I are about 11 months apart in age. So, just for the sake of symmetry, our respective weddings have now taken place about 11 months apart too. Jason and Carolyne's (Topdjian) big day took place outside of Athens on Sunday, July 23 in a nice venue set amidst modern art and flora (Museum Vorre).

The bride was ravishing and the groom dashing (yes, cliché terms, but accurate -- so why not!). Highlights included the best man (Mike Slayer) head-banging to the Ramones, the groom performing a shockingly accurate traditional Armenian dance, the Team Canada table achieving new heights in beer consumption, and various folk from both maternal (Thrace) and paternal (Messolonghi) homelands battling it out for folk-dance supremacy.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves despite the challenge of going directly from the wedding to the airport for our 6am flight back to Brussels. Our flight was via Lesbos (we had come to Greece by charter which landed there). The Lesbos leg was delayed by 4 hours...but there are worse places in the world to spend an extra few hours. Update on our trip to come (early pics already available here).

  1. What a party for the legends of Greece. Right now at the IMAX in Denver is a film on Greece, maybe it will include one of the Kots famous weddings
