Greek Wedding | North Carolina | Victoria and Ben

They started hanging out when they were both in college, Victoria in the sorority and Ben in the fraternity. One day he gave her a ride home, so she could spend the weekend with her parents. There were no awkward silences…no odd pauses…just good conversation! When this music started playing on the radio, Victoria started tapping on something she had on her lap. Besides all the adorable things he already knew about her, there was more…she had rhythm!!! hehehehe and that was very important…heheheh….Ben has played guitar since he was little! And then he proposed to her on their 4th anniversary!

Victoria and Ben, it is hard to put into words how honored I felt to have been part of your day! My heart filled up with joy seeing how happy you were and how much you enjoyed your wedding! It was very nice to meet your family and friends! I hope this sneak peek can bring you back to your wedding day and make you remember exactly how you were feeling! Your big, fat, Greek wedding was AMAZING!!! 😀

Inside of Victoria’s dress there was a label with her original monogram, the last item she had with it before her name changed.

Blue thread was stitched on the hem of Victoria’s gown as her something blue.

The wine came specially from Jerusalem for the ceremony. And she wore her grandmother’s gold watch.

Victoria’s dress was so unique! She used parts of her mom’s wedding dress to add a special touch to her own, like the buttons and the lace on the veil.

Victoria and her mom, Zoe, planned the entire wedding! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!!!!

During the first dance the guests would come and throw dollars on them!!!!!! So much fun!!!!

    Carol, I am absolutely speechless! You captured some of the best moments that I didn’t even realize were happening at the time. It was such a joy to work with you (if you can even call it work!) on the happiest and most important day of me and Ben’s life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for you warmness and for allowing Ben and me the opportunity to relive our wedding whenever we want to!ReplyCancel
