Romantic Wedding at Piazza in the Village
I’m so thrilled to be sharing this soft and romantic wedding at Piazza in the Village Colleyville, Texas (For a larger Colleyville Venue, visit this post). If you are engaged and looking for a romantic venue as a backdrop to your day you should definitely visit The Piazza in the Village.
There are so many wonderful things about being a wedding photographer. This day accentuated how wonderful it is to be able to be a part of ceremonies and traditions I would otherwise miss. Blending cultures is the base of what makes us not only American, but human. I so appreciate being able to document that. Experiencing a Greek Orthodox wedding and enjoying the Greek culture laced throughout the reception. Well, that was a bonus I had not anticipated but am so thankful to have had. (If you’re looking for a smaller Italian style venue, visit this post.)
The couple was simply amazing in their glowing regard for each other and their welcome to their guests. Heather made her own cakes. While most brides, myself included, had trouble finding time to organize the center pieces. Heather created these beautiful confections that fed her wedding 150 wedding guests. And they were DELICIOUS! I am in awe.
The day had started out in the Greek Orthodox church in Euless, TX. Never having attended a service in one of their cathedral’s before, I wasn’t sure what to anticipate. The beauty is immediately striking. Not just the cathedral, but the service itself. Full of tradition, the packed church watched as the bride and groom were led through the old ceremony by the joyful priest. While the stained glass lit the ceremony and hymns hung in the air, the couple dedicated themselves to each other.
Afterwards, the couple headed to the reception at the Piazza in the Village. Centrally located in Colleyville, TX, the Piazza is a gorgeous Italian inspired wedding venue complete with a beautiful courtyard that is a photographer’s dream. The staff was gracious and accommodating as our team of photographer’s requested access to the upstairs balconies and stairways for photos.
Whether they had practiced just for this evening, or they actually could compete on Dancing With the Stars I’ll never know. But, the first dance was gorgeous and graceful.
Not wanting to miss the view, I was able to find a wonderful vantage point to capture their impromptu dance to music only they could hear. As the evening ended, they danced out one last time on a deserted floor. Leaving through a tunnel of love flowered with rose petals tossed by their loved ones. Watching them drive off in their Rolls Royce, I felt like I had just spent the evening in a fairy tale.
