My Big Gorgeous Greek Wedding

My Big Gorgeous Greek Wedding

My Gorgeous Greek wedding! 
Melissa and Jarred

I have known Melissa for so many years! She danced with my own daughters as young girls.  To say that this "dance mom" watched these beautiful ballerinas grow into exceptional individuals is an understatement. 
I can remember when Melissa and Jarred began dating in high school.  It was the sweetest love story.  Fast forward to a marriage proposal in August 2015 and their wedding planning would begin. Theirs is a true high school sweetheart romance! 
When I was asked to be Melissa's on location makeup artist, it was an emotional and overwhelming honor. If you ask any of my brides, they will tell you that I cry at the end of their wedding prep on their wedding day. Every single one of them! With Melissa, I cried during her trial, the week approaching her wedding day, and during her makeup prep on her wedding day!  I couldn't help but remember that little dancer I used to watch. (You can add your own feeling here, but I thought it'd be nice to make a connection why u cried so much for her) 
Melissa and her family are a loving, kind, welcoming, and very Greek family! The ceremony of preparing the bride to her groom on her wedding day is such a beautiful tradition. It involves both of her parents, all of the women of her family, and her bridal party!  It was an honor to witness this experience. 
Melissa and Jarred celebrated their wedding ceremony at St Andrews Greek Orthodox Church and their spectacular reception was held at Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park, NJ. The bride and groom honeymooned in Fiji.
