Kyla & Julius worked with our Traverse City-based planner, Mary Brown, planning their lovely Michigan Fall wedding. They were supposed to be married this coming June, but because of some extenuating circumstances, Mary kicked it in to high gear and they were able to get married & celebrate with family and friends October 26th at The Homestead in Glen Arbor, Michigan.

The day started out with the ladies at the salon at The Homestead. Mary and I stopped in to see how things were going - everyone was calm & relaxed. Mary and I set up a few details and grabbed some lunch (which always feels like a luxury when there is time for it on event days!).

We were all ready to start sending guests to the top of the ski hill for the ceremony, but the day was chilly - so cold, in fact, that the image of the ceremony site above is misleading. The Homestead made the call to do the ceremony inside, which in hindsight was a wonderful idea.

We quickly re-set the ballroom into a ceremony setup, and began seating guests. I have to admit Kyla was thee most adorable bride - she was SO excited/happy/thankful to be marrying Julius, and you could tell in all of her actions. Hopefully, I shared the right photos to share her spirit - she was full of joy! It was a joy to work with her!

After the ceremony, Kyla & Julius braved the chilly, Fall air for some outdoor photos, and then joined their intimate party for dinner, dessert & dancing. It was a great night, at a great location, with wonderful vendors! Thank you to the lovely couple of inviting us to be a part of their day.

Some sweet words from the bride & groom...
"I can not say enough praises regarding Mary Brown and Pearls Events. Mary was the glue that held me together while I was planning my wedding. She was extremely helpful in so many ways. She went above and beyond in her efforts, coordination, planning, answering all of our questions in a timely manner, locating vendors and researching the best vendors to meet our needs, providing expertise and advice, etc.

Our wedding was spectacular, to which I give her the credit. I truly believe she was a gift from God to me and my husband. We had to plan our wedding rather quickly due to extenuating circumstances. I may be bias but even my guests agreed, my wedding was a fairy tale, elegant wedding! Again, I have Mary and Pearls Events staff to thank for this! My vendors were top notch. They exceeded any expectation I may have had." -Kyla & Julius
