A Love Story That Began at a Wedding

Theresa and Mike’s love story actually began at a wedding in 2018! Theresa’s family often calls refers to her as the Greek Gypsy because she loves to travel and is always planning her next trip. Mike loves all things bike-related whether it’s mountain biking or motorcycles. The two now live in Maryland with their beagle pup, Shelby.

A Greek Catholic Wedding Ceremony & a Glen Echo Park Wedding Reception

The morning of their wedding started with Theresa getting ready at her home in Rockville. It was important to her to start documenting the day at home in a place that was meaningful to her. I personally, love the mess and the feel of “too many people” and I get very inspired when so many stories are happening at the same time.

Their wedding ceremony took place at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. The architecture and everything about this church are so impressive! There were more than 150 guests attending the wedding and the nave was still half empty! Theresa’s family is of Greek descendants, so they had a Greek Catholic ceremony which was such a special way to honor her heritage.

After the ceremony, all the guests headed to the wedding reception at Glen Echo Park. Theresa booked this location for two main reasons: the beautiful carousel which was such a fun element and the neon sign for wedding photos.

This Glen Echo Park wedding was such a fun day to be a part of! For more Catholic church wedding inspiration, check out Lisa and Daniel’s intimate church wedding in Georgetown.
