Carolyn and Jim's Greek wedding was an amazing top off to a great 2012 wedding photography season! Photographing the day with friend and long time wedding photography colleague, Eric Barry, we had a great time with the couple and their high-spirited wedding party!
We started the day at Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge while the couple prepared for the big day.
We headed over to Boston's Greek Orthodox Cathedral for the wedding ceremony. Upon arrival the guys waited in suspense for the bride's arrival and kept themselves laughing and excited for the festivities.
The cold Decmber day was marked with the impending large snow storm to start in the evening and to continue into the next day. However, some flurries were already falling and the bride and bridesmaids were careful to protect Carolyn's beautiful wedding dress on the way into the church, but also had fun and enjoyed the snowfall.
Inside the cathedral the exchanging of the Stefana Crowns, Dance of Isaiah, and ring exchange made up the parts of a unique Greek wedding celebration that was fitting for this wonderful couple.
The limo ride back to Hotel Marlowe with the bride & groom, the whole wedding party and parents was TONS of fun! The champagne was flowing and everybody was ready for a celebration.
Back at the hotel, we took some quick photos of just the couple in the "Living Room" with their iconic high-backed red velvet couch.
Hotel Marlowe does beautiful work designing the reception hall! After cocktails we whipped into first dance and speeches.
The party moves into high-gear as the bouzouki player takes the stage and the guests begin their traditional Greek dance known as Syrtos.
We concluded the evening by taking the couple out into the snowy world for a sweet embrace, making our last wedding photographs of this wonderful day memorable ones.
