Keeping with Tradition

Sylvia and Bill coincidentally grew up attending the same Greek Orthodox Church, though they did not know each other at the time. They decided to get married in that same church with a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony to celebrate their shared passion for their Greek heritage.

Real Life Fairy Tale

Sylvia and Bill’s wedding day was simply magical. They felt like royalty strolling the elegant grounds together to take photos, while the stunning interiors of the Armour House Mansion & Gardens were elevated with enchanting floral touches. The couple even made a grand entrance fit for a king and queen, descending the grand staircase hand-in-hand for a magical moment they will never forget.

Time to Party

The dance floor was rocking once the couple got things started with some traditional Greek dancing. Guests loved joining in the boisterous traditional dances! Sylvia and Bill also offered guests a smoky treat on the outside terrace – a custom cigar bar featuring some of Bill’s favorite cigars. With a dance party inside and cigars and gorgeous gardens to explore outside, there was something special for guests to enjoy at every turn.
