Greek Orthodox Wedding Day – Katie & Fadi

RMP Couples

A wedding day is your chance to showcase what makes the two of you unique. It’s also the coming together of communities and families.

Often times, it is the traditions of families that make us realize how our lives are actually connected. A wedding is part of generations of loved ones that have come before us. The prayers said, the music sung or – for Katie & Fadi – the literal steps taken during their own Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony.  These details have been said, sung and walked for hundreds of years. Of course, it is important for us all to maintain our singular personalities. As I watch couples experience the very same traditions that generations they may have never even met also experienced, I am reminded of legacy. I can’t help but be reminded of the importance of connecting our stories of today with those of the past…

Throughout their entire day, Katie & Fadi did all of this and more amidst their Greek Orthodox wedding day. They remained true to what they envisioned for the day. But they also honored each of their distinct family traditions and heritage. The ceremony connected the history of the commitment they have made to each other. The dance floor was appropriately packed in celebration of that commitment all night. To make an amazing day all the more perfect, Mother Nature played nice so that the cocktail hour could be held outside, just as Katie had dreamed.

A huge congrats to these two lovelies. Enjoy every moment, and let the joy of this day be savored for generations to come!
