A Wedding By Westend Studio

Wedding photographer Johnathan Ball of Westend Studio shares Marina & Jim’s wedding.

Marina & Jim’s wedding is a beautiful mix of traditional and non traditional details, Marina describes the day…

…”we had a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony. Getting married in a church was important to both of us. Growing up we attended the same church so we both knew this was the one!

The 2 most important things to us while planning our wedding was to ensure the food was delicious and that our guests enjoyed themselves. From the grazing station during cocktails, the 4-course dinner and late night snack there was always great food to enjoy during the reception. The 8-piece band also kept guests dancing throughout the entire evening! They played everything from Classic Rock to 80’s Dance music to Top 40. We chose not to have a traditional head table. Instead, we sat amongst our family and friends. All of our guests were important to us and we wanted them to know that. This made it easier to mingle and created a much more casual feel. We also opted out of a traditional guest book. We had our guests write their wishes on a large canvas which was on display all evening. Our guests continued to sign the canvas throughout the night, some more than once!”
