Liz attended a friend’s party where set Andreas, who insisted he give him her number. He asked her on a date the very next night at a trendy bar in Baltimore.
“I came straight from work in my scrubs and fleece, thinking this would be a pretty average first date. Besides, if he didn’t find me attractive in my scrubs, this relationship probably wouldn’t work out anyway.”
225 guests attended their October wedding, including a 16 person bridal party at Glen Ellen Farm. The couple chose readings and activities from several backgrounds for their nuptials.
“Andreas is Greek Cypriot, and I’m from a background that is half Episcopalian and half Irish Catholic. My grandfather was an Episcopalian minister who married thousands of couples in his career. If he were there, he would’ve officiated – so to honor his memory, my father graciously obliged. Even though it was his first time, he embraced the role like a pro – and only choked up once.”
The couple chose to decorate the venue in neutral colors and fresh greenery. “We made these gorgeous strings of floating glass globe lights that hung all over the tent, creating a little starry night effect. It was hard work, but the result was beautiful and so worth it.”
Liz is an OBGYN and Andreas is a chef. They currently reside in Seattle.
