Jordan + Markos wedding day called for rain. Lots of it. Boy, were the meteorologists wrong (much like they were about that crazy snow storm that we were supposed to get last winter… but that’s another story). By the time the ceremony started… it was bright, sunny and soooo humid.
They were married at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox church (that I (confess) didn’t even know existed on the outskirts of my town!) with a pretty cool exterior and the most killer interior… with amazing hand-painted murals all over the walls. I was mesmerized when I walked in.
And Father Basil, who presided over the ceremony, was the most warm and welcoming officiant I had ever encountered. I could have hung out with him all day! He was even most helpful for me as he asked if I had ever photographed a Greek wedding – alas, I had not – but I was pumped! And he made it so much more enjoyable!
Seriously, how cute are these two?!
Jordan made for a STUNNING bride.
Jordan + Markos left a good chunk of time in between their ceremony and reception that allowed us a couple of hours for portraits in multiple locations. At first, I was wondering what we were going to do with all of that time, but when I found out that they specifically wanted to do portraits in a few locations and allotted enough time, I was stunned – and thrilled! We hit up Bug Light, downtown Portland, the Eastern Prom and finally we made our way over to The Portland Company where their reception was.
Flower girls slay me. They are so dang cute
Event Lighting Concepts decorated the vast interior of the Portland Co’s event space and did a lovely job.
Mmmmmmm, Nothing Bakes Like A Parrott (cakes and sweets)… So good!
Dancing was highly encouraged by Salonica Boys DJ services who specialize in Greek parties.
I photographed this wedding as an associate photographer for Kivalo Photography out of Biddeford, ME.
