Exquisite Greek Orthodox Wedding by Traci Arney Photography

Timeless, chic, and romantic — this Greek Orthodox wedding stands the test of time. The bride is exquisite (as is her gown), the traditional elements (including a dressing ceremony and church service) are just divine, and the luxury reception is totally fit for royalty! Then you have the white and ivory decorations which are heavenly, and the desserts (and towering masterpiece of a wedding cake), which are nothing short of  scrumptious. All we can add is thank you, Traci Arney Photography for sharing this mesmerizing celebration!

Wedding Highlights

Paul and Zena were married in a Greek Orthodox church in Winston-Salem, NC. Family and friends gathered from far and wide to celebrate in the union of this beautiful couple. The day began with a dressing ceremony as both the bride and groom prepared themselves for the wedding. Hundreds then gathered into the elaborate and stunning sanctuary of the church to watch as Zena and Paul pledge themselves to one another in marriage. The exquisitely decorated reception hall at the Embassy Suites in Winston-Salem, NC was the venue for the lively reception which featured a traditional money dance.

From the photographer:

You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful couple both inside and out. When we first met with Ergen & Vasiva they told us they had a large family, but once we arrived at the wedding we quickly figured out that that was an underestimate! They have a HUGE family! They were so very fortunate that so many of their friends and family were able to celebrate their marriage with them. Vasiva chose two dresses for her wedding and stayed on point with the latest bridal trends for wedding gowns. Her second dress was a nude ombre tulle ball gown with a pick-up skirt by Vera Wang from David’s Bridal. The money dance was an absolute blast!! What better place to party the night away, but at the fabulous The Vinoy Renaissance!

White Lace & Crystals Wedding in Florence Italy

This gorgeous destination wedding is total luxury. And I’m smitten with every bit of it. Paula and Louis had sentimental reasons for choosing Florence Italy as the destination for their second wedding. Fourteen years ago whilst on vacation, they exchanged rings in a small church with only a minister and God as their witness. Last year, they returned to Florence with their two daughters and an entourage of beloved family and friends to celebrate in grand style. With a white lace theme, an abundance of perfect white orchids and sparkling crystals everywhere you turn this, breathtaking Italian event overlooking the city lights is truly remarkable. Thank you Rosapaola Lucibelli Photography for capturing all the beauty and making our afternoon all the more wonderful!
