Laura & Pericles' wedding at The Venetian | Garfield, NJ

May 13, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Laura and I met in March of 2012 in college, after Laura had been reaching out to friends for help with a project, and a mutual friend of ours introduced us. That turned into us having coffee together, and that then grew into getting dinner together, and not long after we had to admit that we couldn’t imagine doing anything else without each other. We had grown to love each other, and every chance we had to spend time together we took advantage of. We were totally smitten. I had even called my best friend one night on a drive home after a date and told him I was going to marry her one day.


We became inseparable over the years. All of our major milestones in life, we had reached together as a team. We graduated together from the College of Staten Island, we got the start in our careers together - it felt right that the biggest milestone of our lives was something that we should do together. I proposed to her in January outside of the River Café in DUMBO and then celebrated with some champagne at Cecconi's privately to enjoy the moment before meeting our parents to celebrate together as a family. Our next step was to get married and start our lives together as husband and wife.


Our ceremony was at Kimisis Theotokou Church in Brooklyn, and our priest so beautifully painted the picture of what our lives were going to be like in the future. We were a team, partners to share every happy event, every sadness, every exciting moment that the future would bring us. Our parents delivered some words of wisdom that will stay with us forever; “Respect each other, be good to each other, love each other.”


We celebrated our special day dancing the night away surrounded by our family and friends at The Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey, and it was a dream come true. - Perry
