Washington Township, New Jersey
I could not be happier to have celebrated Toni and Abraham’s special day alongside their friends and family! These two had a beautiful Greek wedding full of so many traditions, and even more love.
Toni and Abraham have known each other since they were teenagers! As Toni tells it, “We originally met when we were 14 in our church’s youth group. We dated for a three years when we were younger (two years in high school, one year in college) and then went our separate ways. Abraham first asked me out at our church’s annual Greek festival, and we attended four proms together. We reconnected about two years after college at our church’s Greek festival and began talking. After months of talking and a few “not-a-date” dates, we officially went on our first date Memorial Day weekend 2017 at the Monmouth Race Track. The rest is history!”
Abraham popped the question December of 2020! “We went out to a really nice dinner, what I thought was just a date night,” Toni explained. “When we got home he had a whole string of lights set up outside spelling “Marry Me” — it was very magical and I was VERY surprised!”
When it comes to her engagement ring, Abraham REALLY had the hookup… his dad is a jeweler! “My ring is a round diamond with smaller diamonds around the band. I did let him know I preferred white gold and round diamonds, but he picked it out himself!” Abraham went to visit his father in Florida three months before they got engaged to design and customize Toni’s ring, which was totally a surprise. “An awesome, beautiful surprise!” she said.
A wedding on July 3rd was the perfect way to celebrate the upcoming holiday with a bang! Toni and her girls got ready at her parents’ house, while Abraham and his guys prepped at his. These two shared an emotional first look in Toni’s parents’ backyard, and then it was time to get married! We headed to the beautiful St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Wyckoff where these two made it official. Seasons Catering in Washington, NJ was the perfect setting for a big, joyful celebration — and their guests did not disappoint!
As Toni describes her inspiration for their special day, “I love the classic, timeless look which really set the tone for the wedding. The lighter colors, use of vellum, wax seals, and lots of florals and flower petals pulled together a good vibe for the whole wedding. I also did a lot of searching on the internet for creative ideas throughout.”
So incredibly happy for these two to start their next chapter together — congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Can!
