Last month engagement rumors started to swirl around Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux after Jen was spotted wearing what looked to be an engagement ring on her left finger. Today, those engagement rumors kick into high gear with the report that Jennifer has begun scouting locations in Crete, Greece for a reported Summer wedding. Crete is a very special place for Jen because it is the birthplace of her father John Aniston (née Yannis Anastasakis) … it is also about a million miles away from the prying eyes of Hollywood. Could Justifer really be planning a Grecian wedding this Summer?
Jennifer Aniston and boyfriend Justin Theroux are planning a wedding thousands of miles away from Hollywood … TMZ has learned. Sources connected with the Elounda Beach Hotel in Crete (where Aniston’s dad was born, located about 230 miles south of Greece) tell TMZ … Aniston was there recently, scoping the place out. Our sources say Aniston mentioned a July wedding. The hotel website boasts a wedding package that includes:
– A dedicated consultant
— Legal, License Paperwork Requirements
— Civil or Religious Ceremony outside of the Hotel’s Church
— Bridal Bouquet, Groom’s Boutonniere, decoration of the club car
— Bottle of champagne & Greek Wedding Sweets after the ceremony for the bride & groom
You get all that, plus a series of other complimentary services, for about $2,300. Aniston made that for roughly 2 seconds of work on “Friends.” BTW, one of the hotel big wigs says Aniston hasn’t settled on his hotel for the nuptials … as he put it, “She has connections on the other side of the island as well.”
Now … SOME people might suggest that Jen is itching to get married this Summer in order to beat Angelina Jolie and ex-hubby Brad Pitt to the altar (as you may recall, Brangelina recently confirmed that they are engaged to be married) but I’m not sure I would make such a claim. At this point, we don’t even know if Jen and Justin are actually engaged … tho, it’s starting to look that way. Sneaking off to marry on the island of Crete makes a helluva lotta sense. Not only would the Grecian setting be perfect for Ms. Anastasakis but the location would be easier to keep from prying eyes … tho, I doubt the couple are very happy that this information has been leaked already. I guess we’ll have to wait until July to see if this report turns out to be true. I, personally, would love to see Jen and Justin get hitched. They make a great couple … I can see these two lasting for the long haul.
