We love capturing the bride and groom as they get ready for their wedding day. This is the only part of the day where the couple won't know what the other person is doing until they see their wedding film. So while reliving the wedding day festivities through the wedding film is exciting, being able to see a part of the day that wasn't possible to be experienced first-hand is truly fascinating!
Neeta and I started the morning of August 24, 2013 with shots of Dionisios' preparations (including the Greek traditional shaving of the groom's face). As soon as we wrapped up with Dionisios, we hopped into our car and headed to visit Maria as she prepared with her friends and family. We can't help but smile when hearing Maria recant the story of how Dionisios accidentally stumbled across a picture of her wedding dress on her phone! And we're touched by Dionisios' thoughtfulness in sending a stunning flower arrangement to his wife-to-be as a way of telling her how excited he was to be marrying her.
Along the way, we got to meet Arya (the couple's adorable Alaskan Klee Kai) who was so excited to greet all the family members at Dionisios' home. And we got to meet all the great family and friends that were on hand to celebrate with the happy couple.
Are you ready to experience Maria and Dionisios' amazing wedding? We knew ahead of time that there would be several surprises throughout the day, but we were still wow'ed by the level of detail that went into planning their special day. From the ornate orthodox Greek ceremony at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church to the lavish reception at Black Swan Country Club (featuring celebrity guest vocalist Efi Thodi who flew in from Greece just hours before), you're in for a treat. And speaking of treats, don't forget the dessert station featuring heart-shaped Boston Kreme donuts courtesy of Dunkin Donuts (mmmm!) along with two of the nicest Dunkin Donuts team members we've ever met! Special thanks to the fun-loving and inspiring team at Nicole Chan Photography for sharing some of their stunning photography with us (and if you're looking for a great photographer.... you must check out her work... truly beautiful)!
Maria and Dionisios' wedding feature film highlights the best moments of their wedding day and allows you to relive (or experience for the first time) all the excitement through our lenses. This is surely one wedding we will not forget and we wish the newlyweds a beautiful future together. "Singariteeria" (congratulations) to Maria and Dionisios!
