Forever Starts Here: Anastasia and Akis's Wedding Day Journey

At Lane and Ave Studio, we had the extraordinary honor of capturing the unforgettable wedding day of Anastasia and Akis. From the heartwarming ceremony at Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church to the glamorous reception at Arlington Estate, every moment was filled with love, laughter, and timeless elegance.

Getting ready

Anastasia and Akis chose to start their day in the comfort of their childhood homes, surrounded by the love and support of their families. As wedding photographers, these intimate moments provide us with the perfect opportunity to capture the anticipation and excitement before the main event.

The ceremony

The couple chose to exchange their vows at the historic Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church, a stunning venue that exudes timeless elegance. As Anastasia made her way down the aisle, adorned in her exquisite gown, Akis's eyes filled with tears of joy as he saw his bride for the first time. It was a moment of pure emotion and love, one that we were honoured to capture through our lenses.

Family and bridal party photos

Family holds a special place in Anastasia and Akis's hearts, so it was no surprise that family photos were a priority for them. After the ceremony, we headed to the breathtaking Arlington Estate for bridal party portraits and a love shoot. The lush greenery and elegant architecture provided the perfect backdrop for capturing the couple's love and the joy shared with their closest friends.

Embracing the elements

Despite a bit of rain earlier in the day, Anastasia and Akis remained undeterred in their celebration. As wedding photographers, we understand the importance of adapting to unexpected weather conditions. Fortunately, as the evening progressed, the clouds parted, and the sun made a glorious appearance, casting a warm glow over the festivities. This turn of events allowed us to get creative and capture some truly magical sunset shots that perfectly encapsulated the couple's love and the beauty of their surroundings.

Greek traditions

One of the highlights of the evening was witnessing Anastasia and Akis perform a traditional Greek dance during the reception. As photographers, we always appreciate the opportunity to capture unique cultural traditions that make each wedding celebration truly special.

A special thanks

We would be remiss not to mention the incredible work of wedding planner Michelle from Sincerely Yours Events. Her meticulous planning and attention to detail ensured that Anastasia and Akis's day unfolded seamlessly, allowing us to focus on what we do best – capturing memories that will last a lifetime.
