Sam and Nick were married at the stunning Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral with their reception following at The Cannery in New Orleans.  This crew was so much fun. The whole day was filled with beautiful loving moments and tons of laughter. I think that is most likely what happens when two large families become one with the marriage of their children.Nick is Greek Orthodox and Sam is Catholic, so the ceremony was a coming together of both with the main parts being performed in the Greek Orthodox tradition, which I loved. It was very neat to learn about their traditions. One of the most beautiful meaningful things about this wedding day, it was Sam’s mom and dad’s 29th wedding anniversary. What a beautiful way to honor the way marriage is meant to be, lasting and beautiful.

The reception at The Cannery was a blast. There were moments when I actually got stuck in on the dance floor because of the number of people just enjoying the night. It made the reception seem like it was all to short. There was a dance off between the groom (backed by the brides family) and the bride (backed by the grooms family), a mini concert performed by the bride (rocking out on the guitar) and the groom (rocking the microphone), and even a song by the father’s. During the YMCA, I was a little worried that if one more person got on the stage we may all be in trouble….but hey everything worked out fine. The night ended with a sweet 2nd line and lots of well wishes. It was an amazing day.

Sam & Nick,

I wish you both the very best in life. May you look back in 60 years with the fondest memories on this day that you promised your lives to each other. Always laugh and have fun, joy can give you so much strength in life. Nick never stop picking her up and spinning her around and Sam, never stop laughing with sheer abandon when he does. Be blessed beyond measure and may everything you choose to do in life prosper and be fruitful.

Much love to you both!!!
