Debbie and Michael, October 11th!

This was my second weekend in a row second shooting for Steve Blazo and it was amazing! Once again I started with the groom, but this time was very different. Michael was at his parent's house in Queens along with many loud, colorful, very excited Greek family members and Greek food as far as the eye could see. This was my first Greek wedding, and one I will never forget. I love when families have very strong ties to their heritage and traditions and are able to bring them to their wedding day. Michael's family all helped dress him in the living room, showered him with incense and kisses all while they were singing loud Greek music at the top of their lungs. It was wonderful! Next, Michael learned about the tradition of writing all of his single, male family member's names on the bottom of his shoe. The hope is that when your name is rubbed off is when you will get married. The Ceremony and Reception were both held at The Surf Club in New Rochelle, NY.
