Emily and Greg's Elegant Wedding at The Athenaeum

Gabriel Ryan

When we arrived, a slight breeze ran through the large tree overhead giving off the only sound within earshot. It was a peaceful start to what would be an elegant occasion. Like a well-crafted song, the day began to build slowly, with accents perfectly placed and timed. Emily and her girls waited in the bridal room of the Athanaeum as Greg and his boys shared stories and got ready in the library.

The great thing about love and story is the timeless nature of its relationship. What draws us to care for another so much that we would fix our heart to theirs than our attraction and understanding of their story. And it is often when someone else truly understands our story and knows us, that we return our heart to them.

Words couldn’t be more true than with Emily and Greg, and what followed was memorable.

A small gift arrived from Emily, and Greg immediately claimed, Here we go. I know she’s going to try to make me laugh and cry.

With much anticipation he read the card; an intimate collection of words crafted to touch his heart. He then opened the gift to find a small locket. He immediately pinched the tears welling up in his eyes between his thumb and forefinger, took a deep breath and continued opening his gift to find a candy bar and a single-serving mini-bottle of Jameson. With that little touch, Greg lifted his head, eyes red and shining, and couldn’t help but start to laugh. His laughter was contagious, and before the rest of us could get choked up in the library of the Athanaeum, he had us rolling in laughter.

Emily and Greg were meant for each other, and in that moment I learned why. Thank you for sharing such a special part of your story with us. We are thrilled to share your photos with the world.

Much thanks to Carissa and her team at JL Designs for her incredible floral design and to the entire staff at the Athanaeum in Pasadena for setting the stage for an incredible and elegant wedding.
