When we talked about their wedding for the first time together, we asked Stella and Michael: What are you most EXCITED about for your wedding?
For both of them, they immediately knew it was the ceremony that would really mean the most.
Stella would walk down the aisle alongside her father – the man she spent every possible moment with growing up. The man she admires, learned under, and loves so dearly – and he would pass her onto the man who had become her everything.
The more we talked about the details of the ceremony, the more it began to get real for both of them – Michael looked up at us with emotional, excited eyes, and just said, “man, this makes me nervous!” But it was the good kind of nerves. It was the nervous excitement to see Stella walk down the aisle on her dad’s arm, to stand in front of their family making their vows, to be blessed as a married couple and crowned by Christ in the Greek Orthodox Tradition.
And that’s exactly what made Stella and Michael’s wedding day so meaningful. It was their devotion to faith, tradition, and family that made it absolutely perfect.
Beautiful, affectionate Stella was all smiles the entire day, radiating joy from the inside and the outside in her sparkling princess dress! Michael was quiet, sweet, and his face lit up at the sight of Stella – knowing that they are now family. Lomas Santa Fe Country Club made for the perfect reception space for Stella and Michael’s guests, and every detail of the night was perfectly planned by Angie, Stella’s amazing sister!
To the sweet newlyweds: We had SOOO much fun on your wedding day! Let’s do this day all over again, ok? We are so happy for you!
