The Greek Orthodox Wedding Book makes an ideal engagement or wedding gift - a very special gift that will bring each new couple a greater understanding of the ceremony and the true meaning of their sacred union.
There is a profound beauty in the Orthodox wedding ceremony that touches something deep within us - esthetically, emotionally and most if all, spiritually. It is that beauty that inspired this bookÂs creation.
Magical images fill the pages of this new book, reflecting the timelessness of love and the soul of a culture, combined with an eloquent, yet straight-forward explanation of the Holy Sacrament of Marriage.
This beautiful gift book features a luminous, icon-inspired artwork of Evangelia Philipidis along with an eloquent, yet straight forward text explaining the Holy Sacrament of Marriage in the Greek Orthodox Church and its symbolism based on conversations with members of the Orthodox clergy.
9" x 9", Hard Cover, Linen Bound, Full Color 64 Pages, Text By Jamie Jameson/Original Art By Evangelia Philipidis
