Anely + Kyle, The Estate on Second

Anely and Kyle met in front of the Estate on Second for their first look and to privately exchange personalized vows. A hug from behind signaled Kyle to turn around. Smiles filled both their faces when their eyes met, and sweet compliments were shared. The bride and groom both opened their vow books and spoke from the heart. After the intimate moments, the couple was joined by their wedding party to pop champagne and take pictures before heading inside to join their guests for cocktail hour.

Guests signed the bride and groom’s guest book and grabbed a cocktail. The bar was serving beer, wine, mixed drinks, and the newlywed’s signature drinks, a Manhattan Martini and French 75. While everyone mixed and mingled, Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and Glazed Pear and Goat Cheese Tarts were tray passed to fill guests up until dinner. Flowers surrounded the space where Kyle and Anely were hosting friends and family for a tea ceremony and well wishes were exchanged before heading downstairs for reception.

Tables were decorated in fall florals and topped with beer at each place setting. The bride and groom made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat. Middle Eastern Chicken Kabobs, Kofta Kabob, Persian Saffron Rice, Pita Bread, Grilled Marinated Vegetables and Santorini Salad was served while toasts were shared. The menu was selected by Anely and Kyle with help from our event specialist, Lauren. After dinner, the newlyweds cut into their 2-tiered wedding cake and invited everyone to indulge in our Italian Dessert Station with a collection of Fresh Fruit Tarts, Chocolate Dipped Cannoli, Florentine Cookies, Meyer Lemon Cheesecake Bars, and Mini Italiano Tiramisu Cupcakes. One outfit change later, and Anely and Kyle were out on the dance floor with their friends and family. The evening ended with plenty of dancing and posing for pictures to commemorate the celebratory night.
