Wedding Details

We just received the rest of our wedding photos!!!!
I thought I'd take a moment and share some of the design details from the big day.

Once again a BIG thank you goes out to our amazing photographer Montana Dennis & his mad skills with the camera. These images will last a lifetime and he did an unbelievable job capturing the day.

My gorgeous childhood church - Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church.
I feel blessed to have such a gorgeous space to use.  You really do feel like you are in Greece!

Surprise wedding day gift from my love.  I now wear it with my wedding band on the right hand (you wear your wedding ring on your right hand in the Greek Orthodox tradition)

Escort cards display - I used white canvases with different ribbons strung across and simply slipped the cards in alphabetically.

My labor of love, a.k.a. photo booth backdrop. DIY found here.

I hate going to a wedding and having to choose a side to sit on. What if you are friends with both the bride and groom?! I created this little sign to allow for a more casual seating arrangement. 

Greek Orthodox wedding ceremonies are notoriously long and steeped in a lot of history and tradition.  I wanted our guests to understand what was taking place and feel like a part of the ceremony.  
These programs answered questions like...why are they circling the table three times? And what is the priest mumbling?!

Our ring bearer pillow. Carried by our adorable nephew....

 Shout out to our florist who created the beautiful arrangements (I'm partial to my bouquet). Eileen with Grass Roots took my vision and nailed it!

Our version of a guest book. Each guest signed a heart and it is now a piece of art for our home.

The linens took a cue from my dress. I've always had a soft spot for embroidered swiss dots...

Thankfully our reception was held inside. The wind was OUT OF CONTROL that day!! I would have liked a few more lanterns to complete my vision but you can't control everything...

Not only was the cake absolutely gorgeous it was one of the best tasting cakes EVER.  We love Robyn from Robyn Loves Cake. Perfection.

And now a few of my favorite shots from the day.....
