Working with Molly, Tom and Molly's parent's, Jane and Jon, has been one of the most memorable experiences in my Pearls Events history. I've never been welcomed into a family as much as I have with the Pantaleoni's. It was an experience unlike any other I've had in my career and I am honored they chose to work with me. I cannot stress how finding the right planner for you will make the whole process seamless.

Now, on to the wedding details...

The 2012 summer has been one of the hottest I remember, and July 14th was no exception. Molly and her bridesmaids began hair & makeup in the morning, while the guys got ready down the road. Molly & Tom opted for a First Look with their photographer, Jen Kroll, which worked out well, as we had a ton of time to capture images before the ceremony began.

The couple exchanged vows under the large tree overlooking Lake Michigan - it was absolutely picture-perfect! After the ceremony, guests made their way onto the lawn for cocktail hour, before making their way into the dinner tent. It was breathtaking and Jenn & her team at Modern Day Floral did an excellent job of combining a modern color palette with lush blooms in shades of pinks and oranges. All of the design details were absolutely perfect and guests could not stop talking about how amazing everything looked!

After the most scrumptious meal from Christine Ferris Catering, guests made their way back to the lakeside of the home for dessert & coffee, plus dancing. The Dan Rafferty Band kept the guests on their feet until the fireworks went off, and then continued playing until guests went home! I am quite certain no one wanted to leave, but with the sound ordinance, we unfortunately couldn't keep going all night long!

It was an incredible night - one I am quite certain I will never forget!

Molly & Tom - what an honor to work with you and your families! I wish you nothing but the best in the years to come!

Truly breathtaking, the colour combo and the patterns (chevron is a favourite of mine) and the pocket wedding invites with the blue satin touch - genius!
