Real Wedding 2010 | Alicia & Marc

This is the first time I've done a Real Wedding recap with a video, but since Andy of Owen Video was super fast with the day-of trailer, here it is!

Alicia & Marc's October 30th wedding was anything but Halloween-themed. Mary, Megan & I arrived at the JW Marriott in the late morning. While I helped the ladies get ready in their hotel suite overlooking the Grand River, Mary & Megan waited for personal flowers to be delivered to the lobby by the ladies from Events by Ludemas, and kept tabs on the groom, so the couple didn't run into each other before the ceremony.

The Pearls Events team, plus the two ushers, were off to the church before guests began arriving, and everything started right on time - my favorite way to begin the day! Fountain Street Church is one of the most gorgeous churches in our city, and because the bride's family is the most musically talented group of people I've had the pleasure of working with (her father is professor of music, director of orchestras, and head of the graduate orchestral conducting program at the Michigan State University College of Music), the day was filled with amazing music.

After the ceremony, Megan helped organize formal photos with family & the wedding party in the sanctuary, while Mary & I were off to eve at The B.O.B. to make sure every last detail was in place. As guests began arriving for cocktail hour, the Clifford Jazz Trio set the mood.

The wedding party arrived and were introduced into their intimate reception and dinner began as scheduled. Cake cutting and dancing were after dinner, and at 11pm, the party was just getting started. Since everyone in Grand Rapids was out celebrating Halloween that evening, the nightclub opened to the public, and the couple & their friends danced until the wee hours, taking breaks in their private room adjacent to the dance floor.

It was a gorgeous fall day - clear skies, crisp air - full of family, friends and a lovely wedding & reception. We wish Alicia & Marc nothing but the best in the years to come!
