Hannah and Patrick and their Hellenic Center wedding is here!! Their day started and ended at the Hellenic Center with a short limo-bus ride over to the church where Patrick’s family’s priest came up from Franklin, MA to marry them! Their day was filled with special touches including a vintage bicycle (with a Newburyport sign – in honor of where Hannah was born), and incredibly adorable first-look between Hannah and Patrick, a Patriots groom’s cake and a special video shout-out to the University of Texas San Antonio! Although the sun never peaked out for their day, it was the perfect temperature:)! Take a peek at their blog preview below!

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
For Hannah, definitely the first look. I had been so anxious for long about this day and as soon as I saw Patrick it all melted away and I have never been happier.
For Patrick, seeing Hannah smiling ear to ear as she walked down the aisle and knowing right then everything was going to be great!
What was your favorite detail?
The flowers? The cake?
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Don’t sweat the details because you won’t see them! It seriously felt like the day went by in four seconds and we barely had time to talk with people let alone take in the decorations.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
While it’s not a tradition in our family, our groomsmen and friends ran over to us and asked if they could put us each up in a chair for a few minutes. All I remember is absolute panic but it sure was fun!
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Not at all! We had heard a million times that it would be the best day of our lives and thought that that was incredibly corny, but it really, really was!
