Last weekend, we had the pleasure of capturing Kara and Matthew's stunning spring wedding. The day began at the beautiful St. George Orthodox Cathedral in Worcester, MA. The cathedral, with its magnificent dome, intricate paintings, and brightly colored stained glass, provided a breathtaking backdrop for their traditional ceremony. It was a joy to witness the beautiful rituals, including the crowning, joining of hands, and ceremonial walk, which added a timeless and sacred touch to their union.

The celebration continued at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, MA. The reception was a perfect blend of elegance and personal touches that reflected Kara and Matthew's unique love story. Adorable bee and lobster cake toppers sat atop their wedding cake, adding a whimsical charm to the festivities. Guests were treated to thoughtful favors of honey and chocolate lobsters, a sweet nod to the couple's playful spirit.

During the toasts, Matthew's brother delivered a heartfelt speech, reminding everyone of the importance of enjoying not only the big moments in life but also treasuring the small and quieter ones. It was a beautiful sentiment that resonated with everyone in the room, adding an extra layer of warmth and reflection to the celebration.

The highlight of the reception was the dancing. Kara and Matthew's first dance was magical, setting the tone for an evening filled with joy and laughter. A special moment was the mash-up dance that included all of their siblings' wedding songs, creating a beautiful, familial connection on the dance floor. It was heartwarming to see everyone come together to celebrate this wonderful couple.

Kara and Matthew are so kind, and it was an honor to be part of their special day. Their wedding was a perfect start to their journey together, filled with love, tradition, and joyous celebration. We wish them all the happiness in the world as they embark on this new chapter in their lives.

Congratulations, Kara and Matthew!
