Miss Spiropoulos was preparing to change her name by just a few letters, to Mrs. Demopoulos. :) It was an epic day in the making for almost a decade. Angelica and Demetri are high school sweethearts with hearts of Greek gold. They are both deeply rooted in the love of their families and surround themselves with such positive friends. We have had the privilege of getting to know the families over the past several months and would gladly be adopted into either one of their families starting NOW. Both families are gorgeous inside and out and we are truly honored we were able to capture the celebration and cheer for Angelica and Demetri alongside you.

They say a wedding day with rain brings you luck. Angelica and Demetri look to have a life full of luck as it rained the majority of their wedding day! Angelica was preparing for the big day in her parent’s home with all of her closest friends. Her friends are absolutely stunning inside and out. Each girl was gorgeous and full of personality. They made the day so much fun! Angelica’s mom, Kathy, was such a gracious host. Not only did she open up her gorgeous home to everyone, but she was constantly making sure everyone was happy, eating, drinking and okay all day. Everyone fit together like one big, happy family. The earth tone color dresses were the perfect compliment for these beautiful ladies. Angelica could not have looked more gorgeous as she loaded into the limo with her parents for the last time as a Spiropoulos. Down the way, Demetri was getting ready with all of his friends and family at his parent’s home. The house was festive and the kitchen roared with groomsmen singing at the top of their lungs. There was a last minute panic as everyone looked around for a bow tie expert! Ha! And most men have to actually tie the bowtie on themselves! Either way, they figured it out amongst all of them and made it to the church in time to get Demetri married! Demetri’s father, Zach, had a very special gift for him. Zach wears a ring that was given to him by his father with a green stone in the center. It has been in the family for ages and Zach managed to find cufflinks that matched the ring! Amazing! It was pure magic when he was able to give Demetri the perfect cufflinks for his wedding day.

Every pew was filled at St. Andrew’s Greek Church as Angelica made her way down the aisle to Demetri. Demetri’s face was PRICELESS as he saw Angelica for the first time at the end of the long red aisle. It was a traditional Greek ceremony with laughter, tears, and sentimental moments. We love that they do the ceremonial steps three times in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Swarovski crystal crowns were so gorgeous adorned atop their heads. The rain started to come down right after the ceremony and we moved the flower pedal exit indoors! Who says you can’t get everything you want? The reception was at the gorgeous Venetian here in New Jersey. The color painted ballroom is epic and grand while the cocktail hour is unmatched. The celebration kicked off with their first dance on the clouds. They were surrounded by their loved ones as the live portrait artists start painting on a canvas. She stayed all night and painted the scene from beginning to end. It was incredible. The attention to detail, shading, and colors were spot on. The night was pure magic. Dinner, dancing, unbelievable toasts, and out of this world Greek dancing. Angelica and Demetri barely sat down all night. They truly soaked in every moment of the day and evening. The traditional dances were on fire! The live Greek band kept the dance floor full as money filled the air and covered the ground they danced on. Absolutely unforgettable. There is only one way to end an epic night- an epic choreographed dance!!!! Demetri and the boys threw down a killer mash up dance routine for Angelica. We have never seen anhthing like that!!

We are so honored to witness and celebrate with the Spiro and Demo families! Super huge congrats to Angelica and Demetri and the beginning of their new married life. We can’t wait to watch your love story continue to unfold.

Cheers!
