From the bride’s gorgeous Anna Campbell beaded wedding gown, to the personal welcome at the ceremony, we love the attention to detail in today’s Modern Greek Maryland wedding! After a brief introduction online, Athena and Alex decided to meet in person to test the waters; they took to a local sushi restaurant and shared a love of really good food. The date went well and it wasn’t long before they made it really official with a proposal. Athena naturally said yes!
When planning the wedding, the pair wanted to draw on inspiration from both Athena’s hometown roots in Annapolis, as well as Alex’s background from Lexington, KY. The garden-style celebration highlighted both the history of the area, as well as the scenic South River and Chesapeake Bay. By incorporating several ceremony and reception details into this hometown wedding, Athena and Alex were able to honor the bride’s Greek heritage in tandem with the groom’s Lexington spirit. It was clear that family and friends were an important part of the day. With that in mind, the newlyweds provided homemade flower corsages for everyone who entered the ceremony. How adorable and thoughtful is that? It’s things like this that make a wedding day so special.
They seated guests in a circle, creating an intimate and personal ceremony. Asking a close friend to be their officiant added another personal layer. It all came together to create the day of their dreams! From the Greek flower crowning of the couple to the bourbon barrel bar, it’s safe to say that Athena and Alex’s wedding day captured their unique personalities in every way. Athena’s best wedding advice for future couples planning is simply to “plan to create a wedding that truly reflects you as a couple and remember what the planning is all about, so you can really enjoy both the process and your wedding day.” Thank you to United with Love family member Mike B Photography for sharing a look into this intimate wedding day!
