Hannah Elizabeth Ferwerda was raised in the small town of Erie, Colorado, pursuing her love of the arts took her many places eventually landing in West Palm Beach, FL. Matthew Joseph Perkowski was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida, his passion for baseball brought him many places before going to West Palm Beach where he would eventually meet Hannah...
Where We Met
Our story started in 2013 at Palm Beach Atlantic where we were introduced at a party (I mean the library) and we instantly became best friends. Our days consisted of beach trips, long talks, and a Dunkin Donuts. Matthew was at the time "friend-zoned" a term most terrifying for any man, but eventually his personality and good looks got the best of Hannah and--SUCCESS! Friend-zone defeated! Not long into our relationship we embarked on a 36 hour road trip from Fort Myers to Colorado inside a cozy mini-cooper. We knew then that if we could make the trip without literally killing each other, we could make it through anything. Two wonderful years went by after our first adventure when Matthew proposed in one of Hannah's favorite childhood spots over looking the snowy Rocky Mountains. As the saying goes, the rest is history.
The Wedding Ceremony will be held at 5.00 pm on the Wedding Lawn at the Playa Largo Resort. We recommend you arrive in good time for the ceremony (seated by 4.45 pm). Afterwards, hors d'oeuvres and cocktails will be served on the back lawn.
The Reception party will begin at 7.00 pm on the back lawn. Dinner will be served, and shortly afterwards will be the cutting of the Wedding cake, and finally the first dance.
The Bride and Groom send-off will be at 10.00 pm. If you're not ready for the night to end, head to Sol by the Sea and keep the party going!
