Marina & Justin got married in Charlotte, North Carolina, during Memorial Day weekend. : )
The whole day was beautiful. I especially loved shooting my first Greek Orthodox ceremony at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral. There were so many unique, lovely traditions that I got to witness. I could tell throughout the day that family is so special to Marina & Justin. Marina’s nieces and nephews are so stinkin’ adorable!
And the reception at The Westin looked like something out of a fairy tale… so many details! I was in awe of all the traditional Greek dancing during the reception — money was flying everywhere the entire time. It was a visual delight and there were so many happy moments!

Marina looked stunning in her Lazaro gown!
These little girls were too cute. They kept following Marina around, helping her carry her dress.
Marina’s family members sang to her in Greek before leaving the house for the ceremony. It was touching.
The cathedral was so pretty!
Love this quiet moment just after the ceremony.
The cake was incredible — delicate and bold at the same time!
Bills were flying pretty much the entire evening!
Marina’s father was having a ball!
