Kate & Pano | A Chatham , Ontario Wedding Love Story at Retro Suites Hotel
It was a cold, snowy January day in Chatham. Not a typical “wedding season” day… but Kate and Pano braved the weather and celebrated their beautiful wedding in stunning fashion.
We drove up the 401 to Chatham, in order to join the bridal party preparations at the amazingly unique Retro Suites Hotel. We bounced between two rooms as Pano and his groomsmen and Kate and her bridesmaids got ready. The guys were ironing their shirts and getting cleaned up, while the girls put on their dresses. Kate and Pano shared a “first look” moment in the hotel lobby, before making their way to the ceremony.
The ceremony was held at St. Nektario’s Greek Orthodox Church in Chatham. It was a lovely, traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony. The couple was crowned and exchanged rings… and were declared husband and wife!
For the creative shoot, we worked alongside the talented John Lyons of John Lyons Photography. The girls donned some warm wraps and ventured out into the cold! Kate and Pano kept each other warm as we filmed some creative footage out in a snowy park.
The reception was held back at the ballroom of the Retro Suites Hotel. It was an intimate affair, and featured a delicious meal and a fun photo booth. After dark, we snuck outside again for a fun shoot with some sparklers. The bride and groom danced the night away, celebrating with their friends and family.
Thank you Kate and Pano! It was a fun and unique wedding day… and we hope we captured it just the way you remember!
