From the Planner, Rebecca Grant of New Creations Weddings: "Haroula and Dave's Greek/African and American wedding day was as close to a perfect wedding day as you can get. With the stunning Seattle summer we had last year, in addition to the gorgeous bright and vibrant colors, this wedding was a dream. The rich color palette of purples, pinks, yellows and oranges jumped out beautifully from Within Sodo's dark backdrop. The Edison bulb chandelier was definitely a favorite too, used as the backdrop for the ceremony, then again for the head table. Nods to the bride growing up in Africa were abundant through the use of colors and tropical flowers. Even the cake had hand-made sugar flower bougainvillea harkening to the abundance of the flower in Africa. Haroula's Greek heritage was brought in during the dancing, and although we couldn't break the plates, napkins were thrown about instead.
What a fun, perfect wedding this day was!"
