Gemma and Steve had a beautiful wedding ceremony and J&J Studios was there to capture every moment of this joyous occasion. If this lovely couple looks familiar it’s because our team had the privilege of producing stunning visuals for their engagement shoot. It’s always heartwarming to see couples in the most important stages of their relationship. That’s why when Gemma and Steve reached out to us to shoot their wedding ceremony we had to make sure we helped this couple commemorate their wedding day in the best way possible. This Greek Orthodox wedding session was simply beautiful.
From Colleagues to Lifetime Partners
Gemma and Steve met at a company they were both employed at. “One day Steve asked to buy me a cup of coffee. I declined but he still bought me one anyway. Later on that day he sent me a text message saying that I had to text him to make appointments at work,” Gemma recalls. This led to us texting back and forth a few times. One day Gemma invited Steve and a few friends we had in common to at a St. Patrick’s day parade. Steve showed up by himself. Steve and Gemma had a chance to connect that day. The two have been inseparable since.
It was Steve’s funny and kind personality that won Gemma’s heart. She xx see dX at the fact that he would do anything for anyone and Steve’s passion for his faith makes him the perfect man for her. For Steve, he knew it was something special about Gemma the day she walked into the office building he worked at. “She makes me a better man and that’s something I never felt for anyone, Steve proclaimed about his bride.
The Christmas Proposal
December 7th is a day that Gemma and Steve will never forget. It’s the day when Steve asked Gemma to be his wife. Steve told Gemma that they had been invited to a friend’s birthday party at Christmas Village. Although, the surprise proposal was almost ruined by Gemma’s mom two days prior things still went as planned. Steve proposed in front of family and friends in front of the big Christmas tree. When they got back home Steve had a big engagement party planned with more of their friends and family waiting for them. This was the best day of Gemma’s life.
Greek Orthodox Wedding Session
Gemma and Steve were eager to tie the knot and they wasted no time in planning this amazing wedding ceremony. Gema and Steve’s wedding took place at St. Mary Coptic Orthodox Church in New Brunswick New Jersey. Hosting a wedding during this pandemic can be challenging but Gema and Steve managed to plan a beautiful ceremony.
The session begins with our team taking a few pictures outside the Greek church. Gema looked amazing in her decadent gown that was fit for a queen. Of course, we snapped several photos of the gown that looked dapper in his black tuxedo. The ceremony followed traditional Greek wedding rituals. From the bride and groom arriving at the church to the cow exchange, we captured every moment of this special occasion.
