Yahh! This wedding is so fun for us to post. Let’s first start off saying that is was our first full greek traditional wedding we’ve photographed. But beyond that, everything in the day was amazing. The day started off with the wedding party and families getting ready at the Four Seasons hotel. We had gorgeous details and monogrammed goodness, we had so much fun photographing their personals.
Angela’s mom dressed her and Chris’ brother and dad helped him. With reveals with bridesmaids, dad and moms, these two went into their first look giddy, excited and anticipating the best! When Chris turned to see Angela, it was amazing. The nerves left and the two of them giggled, hugged and kissed and they both just admired each other. Within minutes a surprise showed up, their sweet dog. We love when fur babies show up to wedding days so we made sure to get those pics. Since our almost newlyweds opted for a first look, we were able to get all their iconic photos on the front end of the day! Wedding party and family were amazing to work with and we got to church on time and ready to get these two married. I loved the Greek ceremony with all its customs and important moments. Soon after announcing them as husband and wife, a bubble send-off with all guests as they cheered and celebrated our newlyweds! We surprised these guys with some drone photos since the church building was soo neat… a bucket list church to shoot at!
Once at the Belvedere Hotel, these two spent time with loved ones while the incredible vendor team was working their magic. Katie from Social Graces and her planning team as well as the staff at Belvedere all worked together with Pretty Little Wedding Co and the florist to create an incredible reception space. The custom dance floor, suspended florals, great band set up, and the champagne seating display at cocktail hour were my favs. Oh and let’s not forget some super fun details… The Greeks have a money dance… and I mean money literally flying through the air. Parents and siblings and friends all join in on the fun. And then there is Angela’s outfit change and the pizza cart. So much fun! We absolutely had a blast photographing this wedding. There are so many other details we didn’t mention so be sure to scroll, cause all you’ll see is beauty from this day.
Chris and Angela… What rockstars you two are… such an awesome team. You guys are GOALS!! We love you, love the story of how you both met (Greek School mets Private School kids) and love how you empowered us and allowed us to do what we do well. We wish you the best of luck and most incredible marriage! Don’t be strangers, we will always be here! xo
