Have you heard the term “Fairy Tale Wedding?” because that is exactly how I am going to describe this next wedding. Ladies and Gentlemen, let me introduce you to Meredith & Endrit.
Meredith and Endrit came to us after attending another wedding that Premier Party Planners coordinated and personally, I couldn’t have been happier to dive into another Greek wedding! For those of you who have never attended a traditional Greek Orthodox wedding, it is comprised of multiple rituals, each designed to unite the couple as one. There is a lot of movement, a lot of symbolic pieces (including candles, rings, and my personal favorite, crowns) and if that wasn’t enough, the wedding party members are active participants throughout the entire ceremony. Meredith and Endrit chose to have their ceremony at the beautiful Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Raleigh.
After the ceremony, guests were whisked away via private motor coach to The Bradford in New Hill, NC which had been transformed into a European Oasis for the evening. Upon arrival, guests were greeted with signature cocktails, hor d’oeuvres, and lawn games. The best part? The entire property smelled of olive branches and roses thanks to the amazing work of Brides & Bouquets.
Shortly after the Bride & Groom’s arrival, guests enjoyed a plated dinner prepared by Donovan’s Dish followed by a sweet treat from Edible Art. The festivities them moved into the ballroom space where DJ Stylus SE had everyone up and dancing to both modern hits and a few traditional Greek classics. As the day faded into night and the night slowly slipped away, no one could deny that Meredith & Endrit were without a doubt enveloped in love, friendship, and their very own “Happily, Ever, After.”
