Mary & Gerard’s Wedding at the State Room

 

Mary & Gerard couldn’t have gotten married on a more beautiful summer day!  The whole day was lovely, and the party was a blast!  This marriage joined Greek & Lebanese families – and let me tell you, these guys know how to party!  It was a blessing to witness the merging of hearts, lives, families and cultures.  And dancing the night away with them was definitely an added bonus  :)

We started the day at Mary’s parents’ home, where Mary and her family were getting ready

Meanwhile, a few blocks away my second shooter Nicki Pardo was hanging out with Gerard and his family.  It’s always a little bit more comical with the guys ;)

Greek Orthodox weddings have such cool traditions!  Here the Bride & Groom are crowned with crowns held together by a white ribbon symbolizing glory and unity, and then they circle the altar three times as a demonstration of how that are to keep the Gospel and the Cross at the center of their path.

Then after the ceremony, the run outside and get pelted with rice by their guests!  Haha!

On our way to the State Room, Mary asked the limo driver to pull over by The Charles River so we could shoot a few portraits.  I’m SO glad she did!!

On top of the Greek band, they brought in a DJ to play Arabic & American music.  Talk about a fun mix of cultures and music, and a kickin’ dance floor!

It’s amazing how perfectly you captured the wedding. One of my first wedding experiences was that of my best friend, who happens to be Greek.

This really reminds me of that time and how great it was to see his whole family celebrate in the traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation.

The angles that were used are perfect! I love this set and congrats to the happy couple!

[…] if you thought Mary & Gerard were be beautiful, wait until you see how they designed & decorated their wedding!  Everything […]
