Rina & Greg’s Greek Barn Wedding Reception
One of the things that we pride ourselves on at Windridge Estate is that we are able to provide a space for couples to customize and personal their big day, their way! This was especially the case with Rina & Greg’s Greek barn wedding reception in September of 2018! Rina grew up in the area so she and Greg had a beautiful traditional Greek ceremony in their church. Afterwards they headed over to Windridge Estate for their reception celebration. Once they arrived, Rina and Greg took portraits all across the estate. They started in front of the main house, before finally going out in the meadows with smoke bombs. We LOVED how dynamic the smoky photos looked!
During portraits and wedding party photos, Rina and Greg’s guests began arriving for cocktail hour outside the red barn. Their guests enjoyed lawn games, the firepit, and even roasted lamb over a spit! Inside the red barn, their reception featured homemade jam favors, a donut wall, and elegant chandelier centerpieces on the tables. Their sweetheart table chairs and lace tablecloth were given to them by their family, making it so much more special too!
During their reception, Rina and Greg had lots of fun traditions and dances! One of our favorites was the Greek tradition of family and friends throwing money on the newlyweds to signify good fortune and prosperity in their marriage. We also loved seeing the guests take turns leading the bride and groom in circular dances, starting with immediate family and eventually moving down the line to friends.
Towards the end of the night, Rina’s family surprised them with an amazing fireworks display! It was so spectacular to see and then as the reception came to a close, Rina and Greg’s guests saw them off with a sparkler exit out of the red barn.
