Meg & Jason’s Touch of Greek Wedding at The Cotton Room in Durham, NC

MegJason_3802

 

Meg & Jason were married and had their wedding reception at The Cotton Room in the fall of 2014.  Jason and his family are Greek so of course we had to have some traditional Greek music and dancing!  This one started off a little formal but quickly turned into one of the craziest dancing crowds that we have seen.  We helped the bride and groom plan everything from Texas via Skype and e-mail where they live today.  There was some sort of crazy history of Jason dancing to ‘Billie Jean’ and they told DO NOT play it unless requested by the bride and groom and sure enough at about 11 pm we got the ‘ok’ (photos below!).  Thanks for being our clients Meg & Jason and best wishes. We will never forget your wedding!

Here is some of the Greek music that we played:

  • Aravod – Kalamatiano
  • Trio Hellenque – Kalamatiano
  • Michael Hartophilis & His Orcehstara – Kalamatiano 
  • Haralabos Garganourakis – Pentozalis

Laura & Blair’s Wedding at The Cotton Room in Durham, NC

Photo by Connection Photography www.connectionphoto.com

Today we’re taking a look back at Laura & Blair classic southern fall wedding sprinkled with gold magnolia leaves.  This couple let their unique style come through in every little detail on their wedding day and everything came together amazingly. Laura and her team of bridesmaids made the gold magnolia backdrop for their wedding ceremony.  The groom is a musician and Laura’s entrance song was his own version of Canon in D…wow!  Make sure you scroll through all of the photos below because it got a little out of control when I called Laura and Blair up and let them take over the turntables!

“Thank you to these amazing wedding vendors for helping us make Laura and Blair’s wedding day perfect!”

 Venue: The Cotton Room is a true Durham original with exposed brick, lots of sunlight and wood floors but what truly makes this venue top-notch is the incredible staff.

Photography: Joseph and Andrea at Connection Photography were absolutely amazing to work with again!  Check out their beautiful and artistic style in the photos below.

 Florist: Only Tre Bella could capture the bride and groom’s exact style in flowers.  We are lucky to work with Tre Bella a lot and they always impress.

Wedding Cake: Miel Bon Bons artistically captured Laura and Blair truly unique style with the delicious and beautiful wedding cake.

Catering: Triangle Catering provided an amazing in-house experience worthy of the amazing day.
