LONDON, ONTARIO —A few years ago, I met Yanni at the office I used to work for before becoming a full-time documentary wedding photographer. Somehow we became good coworkers, and I feel it evolved into a friendship. Later I’ll meet the beautiful person that he calls his wife today, Rebecca, a kind and compassionate woman.
Back in November, they asked me if I could photograph their Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony. I am so grateful that I got to be there to experience and celebrate their marriage.
I have to say I was touched when the bride and groom took their first steps as a married couple holding hands together, guided by the priest. If you have never witnessed a Greek Orthodox Wedding, I have to tell you this is one of the most beautiful parts of the ceremony.
Becca & Yanni, your wedding was a testament of your faith, and a reflection of the love you have for each other. Congratulations guys!
