Irini & Athan held their Greek wedding at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in NE Portland. Following Greek traditions, Athan and his immediate family members waited outside the church for the bride’s arrival. Irini arrived with her family in a very stylish 1956 Pontiac. The bride walked with her family to greet the groom and his family. Athan handed Irini her bouquet, and the couple processed into the church for the Greek wedding ceremony.
Irini and Athan are very close with their families and wanted portraits with all their immediate and extended family members. We captured a photo of the newlywed couple with all their cousins which ended up being a group portrait of about 50 individuals. Following the portrait session at the alter, we stepped outside for some additional portraits of the couple. The ’56 Pontiac is a vehicle that has been in Irini’s family for a long time and carries with it a lot of history for the family. It only made sense to capture some portraits by the car and this image of the couple kissing is among our favorites from the day.
Congratulations to Irini and Athan and a special thanks to the entire Whitney Werts Events team for coordinating such a wonderful event. The day was flawless.
