Wedding at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Hammond

Kathy and Larry were married just last weekend at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Hammond, Indiana.  This Catholic wedding was a traditional affair with Greek decorative touches showing off the bride's Greek heritage.

The day started at Vanis Hair Salon in Schererville with Kathy's long time hair stylist and make up artist getting her ready for her big day.  

The ceremony was traditional, but not without some wonderful commentary from Father David in which he weaved great marital advise with nerve calming humor.  Soon it was time for Larry to kiss his bride....

Family formals were taken inside the church as family and friends looked on.  Although I have not gone through all of the wedding photos of the day yet, I have a feeling this image of the bride at the altar beneath the glowing atmospheric lighting of the church's chandeliers is going to be one of my favorites.

Our next stop for wedding party pictures and couple's shots was Centennial Park in Munster, Indiana.  I always like to take photographs around the circular boardwalk of the Centennial lake with the fountain in the background...

The wedding reception took place at Andorra Banquet Hall in Schererville.  Their spacious lobby was home to Kathy and Larry's many tables of wedding decorations such as this mini bridal dress with one of their formal studio portraits in the background.

The bride and groom entered the main ballroom surrounded by Greek columns on each side of the door way...

I couldn't help but notice how much they gazed at each other during their first dance as long time rock and pop band Pawnz played music on stage.
