Orthodox Christian Church

The church was full of family and friends pouring into this little Orthodox Christian church in the heart of Albion, Michigan. The Church was adorn with beautiful paintings of Saints, Candles and old Victorian-Style Rugs. Above the main floor sat a few rows of pews and a beautiful view of the whole church.

An Orthodox Christian Wedding Ceremony has so many beautiful rituals and they each symbolize something different. The timeless paintings and renaissance look of the church is what draws people into this church.

They also decided on Grand River Brewery for catering and honestly it was a 10 out of 10 for me!
