The second weekend of August was ideal weather for a wedding in West Michigan. Pearls Events stopped by Joanna's childhood home Saturday morning to drop breakfast & coffee off to the ladies while both Erin & Julie were on site for hair & makeup. All of the bridesmaids gathered there and enjoyed their morning getting ready together.

Joanna & Patrick decided not to see each other before the ceremony, which always makes the ceremony processional a little more exciting. The look on the groom's face is always priceless. Our team was excited to finally witness a Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony at the gorgeous Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.

After the ceremony, guests were transported from the church to Cascade Hills Country Club and enjoyed a lovely summer cocktail hour on the patio entertained by Irish band, Peat in the Creel. Guests were invited to find their seats for dinner, and the bride & groom were introduced into the dining room by the band.

The mother of the bride & mother of the groom had a little surprise for the couple. Joanna's mom presented Patrick's mom with a cake, just like in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. They were a fun group to work with!

After dinner & dessert, the dance floor was packed for the rest of the evening. Later in the evening, Yesterdog arrived for the late night snack and in the early morning hour, guests finally made their way back to their hotel rooms!

Joanna & Patrick - We loved working with you and your families on your wedding day! Thank you for inviting us to be a small part of your big day! Best wishes for a wonderful life together.
