Last fall I had first Greek wedding with Laura & Socrates.... and it was FUN! It was great to learn about their unique traditions and see them in action. Laura was the center of the celebration and looked absolutly stunning! She began the day getting ready in her suite at the Roosevelt .
All the floral arragements were done by Nola Flora and couldn't have been more perfect.
The ceremony was at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral in New Orleans. This photo gives me chills!
One of the highlights of the wedding was the band that Laura & Socrates flew in from Greece for the wedding!
Yes, that is money you see all over the floor! It is a tradition that everyone dances in a cirle around the bride, each taking turns dancing with them & tossing money . The money goes to the band as a tip.
The decor was in rich fall colors with fresh pumpkins and pears as accents. So perfect for this time of year!
Laura changed into an adorable white party dress to finish off the night.
My favorite photo of the night was of the newlyweds sharing a special moment in front of the hotel.
MQ did a wonderful job ... the pictures are all beautiful.
Congratulations to Laura & Socrates! It was so much fun helping you with your wedding and seeing all of your great traditions. Hope you have a wonderful anniversary!
