My good friends Toula and Mike were married recently in a beautiful wedding ceremony! Weddings at St Michaels Orthodox Church in Beaumont are just sooo beautiful!
With gorgeous dιcor provided by Darryl and Co, authentic live Greek music imported from Chicago, and the most loving family, this promised to be one hugely fun day π
We began the day early in the presidential suite at the Elegante, Toula looks radiant π
Meanwhile, downstairs in the Grand Ballroom, Darryl & Co has made the trip over from Houston and what seems like a crew of 50 are working their magic:
Pretty Jimmy Choo’s, and the handmade floral headbands for the flowergirls are amazing:
I heard Toula’s dad say hardly anything all day – always quiet strength, watching over his little girl. Here we’ve now left for the church:
It’s time for a wedding! I *love* that moment when the dad sees his daughter all dressed up in her wedding dress and veil for the first time. There’s usually a gasp, maybe a tear, always the same proud look π
“Yes, I know there’s a wedding going on, why do you ask?” π
Yay! π It’s on to the party at the Elegante!
I *think* everyone enjoyed the Greek dance music, the band and DJ played loud and long past 1am…

Like I said… awesome day π Congratulations Toula and Mike!
