Aarin + Todd, The Estate on Second

Aarin slipped into her modern, romantic wedding gown. A structured bodice and tulle skirt with trailing tulle veil paired beautifully standing next to her bridesmaid’s dresses that were mauve in color with different necklines and soft silhouettes. Bouquets of white, peach, and blush flowers were held by the bride and her bridal party and the same florals adorned the middle Palladian window inside the Crystal Ballroom where Todd and Aarin would soon tie the knot. Todd awaited his bride in The Attic just upstairs in a forever classic black suit and tie. When he turned around to see Aarin, a look of excitement and happiness filled his face. The two embraced before heading down to the Crystal Ballroom for their ceremony.

Guests lined up outside in The Veranda to sign Aarin and Todd’s guestbook and snap a commemorative polaroid. Once done, they found their seat inside and awaited the bride and groom. The Crystal Ballroom was full, the music cued up, and the wedding party made their way down the aisle ending with Aarin. The bride and groom exchanged vows and rings, then sealed the deal with a kiss as they were announced husband and wife.

Cocktail hour consisted of delicious craft beverages including the couples signature drinks: A Greyhound and Hawaiian Mule. In The Attic, light bites were tray passed like Caprese Skewers and Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and cheese platters were available for guests to enjoy. After cocktail hour, everyone found their seat in The Crystal Ballroom by locating their name and table number handwritten on the gorgeous seating chart display made of pastel vases. Each table was decorated with light grey linens, blush table runner and napkins, candles, and clusters of floral arrangements. Friends and family shared toasts and ate a delicious dinner together before showing off their moves on the dance floor. A dessert display was devoured by those who had a hankering for something sweet and guests grabbed props and posed for pictures at a photo booth before sending off the happily married couple.
