Renee & Pete first met at a church event years ago at The Greek Orthodox Church. It took several years but their friendship develop into something more. While on a trip with some friends, they finally made it official – they were dating. Fast forward, at the same church where they first met, they were married. Renee and Pete’s wedding day was the definition of pure elegance. Extraordinary floral decor put together by Pete’s sister, gorgeous gown, amazing bridal party, music and incredible details… most of all, Renee’s infectious smile.
Greek Bridal Shoes Traditions:
First, the names of the brides single friends are written on the bottom of the brides shoe. At the end of the night the names that are worn off are those of the girls destined to be married soon (good luck girls!)
Second, the Koumbaro from www.greenpathcreative.com goes to the bride’s house on their wedding day with the bride’s shoes on a platter with money inside the shoes. His offering are at first denied and he puts in more $$$ cash. This is such a fun tradition to see!
Wedding Favor – isn’t it gorgeous?
The crowns are a visible reminder that the bride and groom have just become the King and Queen of their newly created family.
While the guests were exciting the church, we took a quick ride to Metropolitan Park area to take a few pictures. It was a great moment to see Renee & Pete truly enjoy their first moments as husband and wife.
