Advice: Greek Wedding Videography

I was asked to videotape a Greek wedding. I've never done one before and apparently, this is going to be one of those big New York City jobs.

Can anyone with experience in traditional Greek weddings tell me how they differ from traditional "American" weddings? I need to know what to expect so I can anticipate what's going to happen.

Be sure to bring a bottle of Windex.

I'd expect that from Bravo...

The Windex is from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" where, according to the bride's father, Windex gets rid of cold sores and facial blemishes.

MEANWHILE...

All I need to know is that there's alot of dancing?

That was on my "watch it ONLY if I'm really desperate" movie list. I guess that is why I missed the joke. Thanks for filling me in ;)
