The amount of Grecian influences that have shaped Rita Rizos and Christopher Pappas’ relationship is one for the books. Rita’s brother introduced the pair when Christopher was working the food fair at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church. They hit it off, sparking a two-year courtship. During a week-long vacation in Greece, Christopher took a moment from their dinner plans to venture onto the restaurant’s balcony. It was the perfect place for them to view The Acropolis of Athens and for him to execute a romantic proposal. The couple celebrated with a traditional ceremony at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Ambridge and an intimate reception at The Wooden Angel in Beaver. Warm shades of maroon, cranberry, orange, and yellow covered the tables and filled the flower arrangements for a flawless, fall theme. Opa!
