A Theatrical Greek Wedding at the Stonegate Conference & Banquet Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois
Eleni Karas (29 and an educator) and Nicholas Smith (29 and a manager) chose a theme based on who they are as people: fun, theatrical, and Greek. Eleni walked down the aisle to "A Heart Full of Love" from "Les Miserables," and the couple entered their reception to the theme song from "Jurassic Park." Nicholas, a huge "Batman" fan, had small touches of the Dark Knight incorporated throughout the wedding, from his cuff links to the card box. The couple exchanged vows in a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony and honored classic Greek traditions, such as Nick filling the bride's shoes with money and the Greek circle dance with guests.
