It was “I do” times two for Maria Menounos.

After first marrying longtime boyfriend Keven Undergaro in a live, televised ceremony during Fox’s New Year’s Eve countdown show this past holiday season, the Medford native and TV personality headed to Greece with her beau to tie the knot once more.

Menounos posted photos and videos from the wedding on Instagram, calling the celebration “a magical fairytale.” In one post that included a picture of her and her father, Menounos noted how special it was to go back to his homeland for the wedding.

“Growing up we saved all the spare change we found on the nightclub floors we cleaned in Boston to save up and visit Greece,” Menounos wrote. “It meant so much to him for us to be connected to our heritage, to know the language and the traditions.”

Menounos also thanked her friends and family for uniting in Greece for the nuptials.

“Returning to get married there was my wildest dream come true,” Menounos wrote. “All of our friends and family helped make it truly the most special moment of all our lives.”

Love my dad so much. This was a dream for him. He was born and raised in akovos. Though he’s the proudest American you will find, he is also equally proud of his roots. Growing up we saved all the spare change we found on the nightclub floors we cleaned in Boston to save up and visit Greece. It meant so much to him for us to be connected to our heritage, to know the language and the traditions. Both my parents wanted that. It took years but finally we visited in 1988 when I was 10. I loved it. We spent almost a month In akovos and it always held a special place in my heart. Returning to get married there was my wildest dream come true. All of our friends and family helped make it truly the most special moment of all our lives. My dad gained 20 years of life, my theio niko too. My poor dad got so sick a week before the wedding and we almost lost him. Luckily my friends and family helped him get better all while keeping me in the dark. This is why I feel so blessed. To have my parents at my wedding I know wasn’t easy between dads diabetes and moms cancer. I know many who weren’t as lucky and I will never take that for granted. #mariaandkevensbigfatgreekwedding #akovos #love
