When we stumbled across Despina & Eric’s stunning, funny, sweet wedding film on WeddingWire, we knew we needed to see more from this incredible two-day multicultural wedding celebration. The gallery from Abby Caldwell Photography did not disappoint! With Brittland Estates standing as the stunning backdrop, Eastern Shore Tents & Events and an amazing group of vendors created a wedding weekend nothing short of magical. There was just too much amazingness to fit into one post, so stay tuned for part deux next week!
Despina’s 3 Favorite Details:
1. In a Greek Orthodox wedding, the bride and groom are crowed with two “stefana” (or crowns) joined by a white ribbon. We used my parents’ Stefana from their wedding over 30 years ago.
2. My Dad is a chef and insisted on being very involved in the food. That was very special for us.
3. The homemade details! My aunt designed and made chalkboards for signage, we made a s’mores boxes and a fire pit for guests to enjoy s’mores, and we used my grandmother’s handmade table cloth for our cake table.
