One of Joanna's bridesmaids read an email during the toasts that Joanna had written to her after meeting John. It was a very touching email that I won't share to the world, however it did at one point refer to the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" because John and his family are Greek. So I thought it fitting to title the post with that.
John and Joanna were married this Sunday at St. John's Greek Orthodox church in Hyde Park with their cocktail hour and reception at the Rusty Pelican. Joanna was such a radiant bride - she did not stop smiling the entire day. She worked hard to represent John's Greek heritage in some of the details in their wedding, including naming the tables after Greek cities and having Greek pastries and cookies at their candy buffet (YUM). Once again we got to work with some awesome vendors including the talented Michelle Renee who did hair and makeup, DD's Blooms who designed the florals, DJ Eric Hardy who got the party going, Trinity Video who is always a pleasure to work with, and the newlywed photography team of Ela and Jason from Limelight Photography. Limelight is always so generous sending photos to us so we are just going to give you a sneak peak of Joanna and John's wedding with a few photos Beth took.. but stay tuned because pro photos will be coming soon!!!
