The sanctuary at St. Barbara’s Greek Orthodox Church is bright and impressive. The religious icons are in rich, vibrant hues creating a beautiful sanctuary. Adding decorations could be daunting but the aisle decor chosen blended seamlessly. Large sheer ivory bows with a touch of greenery alternated with clusters of Circus roses and greenery with ivory ribbon streamers down the length of the aisle. Just the right touch. Maria Brady of Choreographed Events over saw the day of events for the couple, seeing to all the final details and getting our beautiful bride down the aisle.
The bride was traditional and romantic in her ivory lace dress complimented perfectly with a bouquet of ivory roses and fragrant, pearl studded stephanotis. Attendants in yellow chiffon carried hand tied bouquets of Circus roses, a lovely deep yellow rose with a reddish-orange edge. The groom wore a boutonniere of 3 stephanotis blooms as he awaited his bride at the altar. Al Gordon Photography captured every moment in beautiful detail.
Guests traveled to the Polo Grill in Lakewood Ranch for a fabulous dinner. Brushed gold candle holders with floating candles washed the room in warm candlelight. Wreath rings of green hydrangea and circus roses decorated some of the tables while others had 3 tear drop vases of hydrangea and roses clustered at the base of the candle holders. Pastry by Design created a scrumptious cake and the couple’s flair for a bit of whimsy was evident in the Mickey and Minnie Mouse cake topper. Here’s wishing Angela and Chris all the best as they begin their lives together!
