Elizabeth + Alexi | 12.07.19 | Pensacola, FL
When Elizabeth and Alexi booked me, I have to say, I was SO EXCITED. Not only are they the most stunning couple, but they planned on having a traditional Greek wedding. All the years of watching My Big Fat Greek Wedding and now I get to photograph one? Absolutely, I am ALL IN. And I’ll tell you now, it was everything and more.
They exchanged nuptials at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox church in Pensacola where traditional rituals were taken place. Long white taper candles were put into their hands to hold symbolizing their willingness to receive Christ in their life. Then they had Stefana crowns placed on the bride and groom’s head with a ribbon connected to the two symbolizing the couples union. And once I saw the guest pulling out their cell phones to record, I knew something really important was about to happen. They then walked hand in hand around the sacred table 3 times symbolizing their first steps as husband and wife.
Then, the reception at the Pensacola Country Club was one for the books. Elizabeth’s dance with her father filled the room with tears while later her father played and dedicated a sweet harmonica song to his baby girl. The night just kept getting better just watching the guest dance to Greek music and seeing the bride and groom’s money dance, had me wishing I was greek! All I kept thinking was, “Man, Greeks are so cool and know how to party!”
Elizabeth & Alexi, to say that I had a great time is an understatement. You both are the most down to earth & FUN human beings that you made me feel like I’ve known you guys for ages! Just let me know when the next Greek party is and I’ll come as an honorary guest 😉
Love y’all and have a very Merry Christmas!
