Thane and Georgina’s love story unknowingly began when Georgina became friends with Thanes’ sister, Felicia. At the time, Felicia bugged the two to get together by going on a “blind date” but neither was having it. Some time had passed and by fate, Thane and Georgina ran into each other at a festival. They started talking and just like that, Thane asked Georgina out by offering to take her for a ride on his motorcycle. She said “yes” and the rest is history.
THE CEREMONY | The Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, where Thane and Georgina have both frequented many times before, is where the ceremony took place. Plenty of natural light shone in from the windows spotlighting the plethora of cherry blossoms and roses lining the aisle. When Georgina saw it for the first time, her breath was taken away. The moment she walked side by side with her mother and father down the aisle, eyes glued to her soon-to-be husband, was one of the most amazing moments of her life. They said “I do” on June 22, 2019, which also happens to be Georgina’s parent’s wedding anniversary as well as the day after Thane’s birthday.
THE RECEPTION | Complete shock and awe is the best way to describe Georgina and Thane’s reaction to their gorgeous reception designed by Creations by Gitta. An otherwise simple, square room was transformed into a magical fairytale. Georgina recalls walking in with her mother and both being in tears. “I felt like I was living my dream,” she says. “She managed to make my vision a reality.” With a receiving line of 480 guests, the couple admits they fully lived up to the notion of a “Big Fat Greek Wedding.”
THE DECOR | The decor was everything Georgina imagined and more. Gitta and her team did an outstanding job of filling the space with cherry blossom trees, tall rose centrepieces and chandeliers. Since it was important for the bride to be surrounded by the bridal party, an elevated platform was put into place to support the head table which truly stood out in the centre of the room. Hanging overhead was an incredible floral canopy lit by more chandeliers. Immediate family sat directly in front of the bride and groom with more fairytale-inspired decor that featured fresh floral runners draping onto the floor. In the middle of it all was a vinyl dance floor displaying the couple’s initials.
