Presented by Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia and Chesterfield County Department of Parks and Recreation
You have likely attended many weddings throughout the years and seen traditional wedding customs repeated over and over again. Have you ever wondered why we do these things? Find out the origins of these customs, why they are significant, and how they have changed throughout the years at “Wedding Traditions Tea”.
This event is presented by Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia and Chesterfield County Department of Parks and Recreation. At this occasion, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a selection of teas, finger sandwiches, and sweets while listening to a presentation on the history behind and significance of wedding customs.
This program will be given by Daniella Kyriakides, a Richmond- and Tri-Cities-area wedding planner. Kyriakides has been advising brides in planning and coordinating the weddings of their dreams for over 40 years. The speaker gained experience in wedding planning by helping friends put together their weddings when she was in college. Kyriakides found she really enjoyed doing this for her friends and continued wedding planning as a side business after she moved on to her career as a professor at the VCU School of Dentistry. She works on weddings at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Richmond and is a wedding planner and coordinator of referral for Weston Plantation in Hopewell, Brandermill Country Club in Midlothian, and Dover Hall Estate in Goochland. The speaker’s knowledge of and affinity for weddings are bound to make her presentation a treat.
