Photography by the Marions
Peggy Terzopoulos and Nick Rasmussen exchanged traditional vows in a minimal, non-denominational ceremony at the Atrium on Tenth, with the bride’s second cousin presiding. For the theme, Peggy says, “I wanted a more ‘romantic’ vibe, so we went with fewer pastel colors overall for decoration and flowers.”
In a nod to an old wedding custom, Peggy’s “something new” was a pair of Tiffany stud earrings from her sister and maid of honor. Nick’s grandma’s sapphire bracelet, a 30th wedding anniversary gift from Nick’s grandpa, served as Peggy’s “something blue.”
In keeping with Greek tradition, the bride was spotlighted in a dollar dance during the reception — much to the couple’s surprise and the guests’ delight. On a more somber note, the couple recognized those not present in a unique way: “Instead of having a remembrance table,” the couple says, “we had the guests get up and dance to a song with us to honor the people who couldn’t be with us that day.”
