Yury and Daria’s wedding was full of traditions, which made the day packed full without any time for their intimate bride and groom pictures. So after their engagement session we decided to do the Bride and Groom portraits completely separate from the wedding day, and even after their honeymoon! We wanted to capture all the details of the wedding and not be flustered with the couple's photo shoot on the fun filled, busy day! A separate portrait day allowed us to concentrate on their Bride & Groom Portraits on a whole different level. The wedding day started formal as usually. My second photographer and I started with the "getting ready" pictures, and then the traditions kicked in! The groom and his crew of best man and family went to the brides house! But it was not to do the first look pictures as one may think! While the bride was getting ready, her bridesmaids prepared a few challenges before the arrival of the groom. he had to pass a few tests of knowledge about the bride...how fun is that? Then Yuri (the groom) had to pay money to buy out his future wife, and show the brides family that he deserves to be her future husband. After bargaining and plenty of money spent it was time for a "little" celebratory happy hour! The wedding ceremony was held at St John-Baptist Greek Orthodox Church at Myrtle Beach SC. After pronouncing the newly married Mr & Mrs we took a few formal pictures with immediate family and headed to THE HALL AT ST. JOHN’S where the reception begun. The reception was filled with music, live entertainment and many toasts! Then came the first dance, cake cutting, and lots of traditional dances. I as a wedding photographer, having a team (second shooter) was the best way to capture the most from this fun filled day. Just take a look at the pictures! Consider StanWeddings for your upcoming wedding. Because at the end of the day what will matter most is your love for one another, and the photos & video to cherish along with memories captured. Cheers!!!
