Efstathia & Eleftherios: Big Phat Greek Wedding.

OK, so I just found out how to correctly spell their names, but the stupid American way to pronounce their names is:  ‘Esther and Lefteri’.

We don’t even know where to start with how spectacular this wedding was….

HIGHLIGHTS:

Getting ready with line dancing, live music, Greek moonshine ( we think?), and lots of family. Blissful chaos!!

Arriving at the ceremony:  ON HORSE BACK!?!?!?!?

Ceremony:  Holy Cross Greek Orthodox church in Brookline, MA with so many new and different traditions and beauty.

Formals: At sunset with the horses at Jamaica Pond and then Memorial Drive.

Reception:  Nightingale Inn in Wenham, MA with many, many lambs.

Party done by:  The one, the only Jessica with The Social Butterfly

Here we go:

enjoy.

THANK YOU!!!

Whipped while getting ready?  How awesome is that.

carmen elrod - I have known Esther the bride since she was 11 years old. I would have not miss her wedding for anything! We came from Florida expecting her day to be BIG, we know her family….however,the day/weekend was beyond our expectations…THAT WAS THE BIGGEST< MOST FUN GREEK WEDDING we have ever attended.
People will remember their wedding as long as they live. EVERYTHING was very well planned, the couple looked amazingly happy and the FUN was definitely there!!
You guys did a fantastic job taking shots of every detail and every moment, you captured everything!! GOOD JOB!
Can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures….For sure they are beautiful!

Bree and Jack: Hitched up.

Get this:  Bar Harbor, Maine really IS super beyond gorgeous and perfect.  Acadia National Park?  Yowza.  If you were ever wondering what the Pacific Northwest looked like, it’s that.  But with lobsters accents.

Bree and Jack were married at The Bar Harbor Regency over Labor Day and it might have been the best day of the year to be married there.  PERFECT!!  Bree and Jack are painfully good looking and were sooo much fun to photograph.   Ben and I agree that their party was one of the best of the season.

And because I like to brag:  Ben and I got in my car at 11:15pm in Bar Harbor, ME.  We got to our hotel in Portland, Maine, at 2:30am and every single hotel guest was out in the parking lot and the place was surrounded by fire trucks.  There was a fire alarm around midnight, and everyone was still outside at 2:30.  We made the decision to keep driving, and got home to Boston at  4:15am.  We were shooting again at noon.  You can send congratulatory cards to: hitched studios, walk hill st, jp, ma

Bree and Jack, we love you.  thank you.  enjoy.

Jessie Perry - Your captions get sassier and sassier as your photos get better and better.

Dan and Kat: a wet and beautiful wedding.

Hurricane Danny touched down on Meredith, NH on pretty much the exact moment Kat and Dan exchanged vows.  That’s gotta be some serious luck.

They were married at the outdoor chapel at Camp Wanakee where they met and fell in love.   Kat insisted there not be a tent so the pictures would be better (we love kat!).  We had SUCH a good time at their wedding…it’s surely a ceremony we won’t soon forget.

Thanks so much, guys.  enjoy.

Megan and Matt: Backyard Wedding in Rye, NH

n Rye,

I guess we’d all have backyard weddings if our backyard was….the Atlantic Ocean in Rye, NH.   Megan and Matt wanted a simple wedding where only their parents and their siblings (and their families) were invited.  The larger than life party will come in October….

Until then, enjoy their photos.  This is the nicest, most generous, welcoming, loving, beautiful family.  We love you guys.  Thank you so much for having us there, it was a huge highlight for us.

enjoy.

Matt and his awesome son, Shane.
