Marina + Ray || Sundara ||

This was a beautiful wedding for an inspiring couple. Marina and Ray both come from families in the medical field. Both sets of parents are respectable doctors, so the apples did not fall far from the trees=) Marina is about to start her Pediatric residency, and Ray has two years left in his Radiology residency.

I am all for new experiences, and Ray and Marina's wedding was definitely an amazing experience! This was the first Orthodox Egyptian/Christian ceremony that we have filmed. There was a lot of chanting and singing in doxology/verses from the Bible. Marina and Ray did not exchange vows or rings during the ceremony like traditional Christian or Catholic weddings. Towards the latter end of the ceremony, they were robed and crowned by the Church officials! They both resembled royalty, it was really fascinating!

This was the second time we have had the privilege of shooting at Sundara in Boones Mill, Va. It is truly a gorgeous venue! I could tell from first meeting Marina, that this girl had all of her ducks in a row.... and man was I right...Stephanie & Marina spent a lot of time making this reception perfect! I can't wait to see the images taken from their talented photographer, Marta Locklear... I won't list every little detail but you will be able to see from the wedding trailer that it was done right! Congrats Marina and Ray, glad to hear your enjoying your Mediterranean honeymoon!
