My Big Fat Greek Wedding - Nectaria and Jeremy

There is something about large families with ties to their ethnic backgrounds that I absolutely adore. The controlled chaos that is the interaction between one another. The emotion that spills from their bodies as you can tell how much they care about one another. The fact that no matter how much stress, (and in the bridal suite prior to the ceremony. . . there is lots of it) these families always seem to bend, not break. Nectaria, Jeremy, and their families are no exception to this rule.

From the start of the day, this one had everything in it. A little chaos, a little emotion, a few nerves, and even an off the cuff political joke (explained in the clip). Never the less, with all the challenges, emotions, and quirks a big family can bring to a wedding day, this one performed flawlessly with a lot of love in the process.

Nectaria and Jeremy were married at the Assumption of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church in Long Beach with the reception at the Long Beach Hyatt. When I went back through the footage, I found the toasts to be so fun, yet compelling that I had to share with everyone, and so here it is, the highlights from thier special day.

A very large thanks to Tony and Marion from Elegant Photography. Always a pleasure to work with! Couldn't ask for a better Husband and Wife team!
