A Whimsical Backyard Wedding II

Our reception took place in my parents’ yard.  My parents are avid gardeners and had spend the better part of the summer tending to flowers and manicuring the lawn.  My husband and I  chose to make most of the details ourselves, from the letterpressed invitations to the tiny sock monkey couple that topped our cake. We are blessed to have many loving friends and family members who were willing to pitch in and help us put together such a special day.  My maid of honor and I purchased the flowers at the local market and friends helped us put together bouquets and table arrangements.  The scrumptious Greek feast was home cooked by friends and family.

My husband serenaded me with the first song of the evening and his band mates played the song for our first dance.  I’ll never forget the look on the band members’ faces when my relatives showered the dance floor with dollar bills (an odd Greek-American tradition).  We are also very fortunate to have such wonderfully talented photographers as friends.  We love our wedding photos and will always cherish these beautifully documented moments.

Thank you again to evs media for sharing these gorgeous images with us. And to Yota and Joe for letting us take a peek into your beautiful celebration! We wish you lots of love and happiness for many years to come.
