Arlene and her bridesmaids got ready together in matching floral robes before heading over to The Estate on Second. The bridesmaids wore plum colored maxi dresses, each with a different neckline, and Arlene wore a lace and chiffon halter-neck wedding gown with a beautiful open back. Jay was waiting upstairs in The Attic to see his bride for the first time. As she approached him, he turned around and a huge smile filled his face as he hugged his stunning bride. After their first look, Arlene and Jay headed outside to meet up with their bridesmaids and groomsmen for photos while guests trickled into the Crystal Ballroom.
The Crystal Ballroom center Palladian window was draped in greenery and white roses and chairs were filling fast as guests found their seats. Music began and the room fell silent as Jay walked out followed by the rest of the party ending with Arlene. The bride and groom partook in a lasso ceremony and lit a unity candle before reading their personal vows written for one another. Arlene and Jay sealed the deal with a kiss and their officiant announced them as husband and wife as guests cheered and rose from their seats.
After the wedding ceremony, guests made their way up to The Attic where tray passed hors d’oeuvres and refreshment awaited them. It was a beautiful evening, so The Terrace was filled with lively conversation and breathtaking views of the city. Downstairs, long family style tables covered in ivory linen were being set with flatware and glassware. Fresh greenery acted as table runner decoration across each table and candles set the ambiance. Everyone found their assigned seat and the DJ announced the arrival of the newlyweds. Arlene and Jay danced their way downstairs and into their first dance surrounded by loved ones. Friends and family shared toasts while tables were excused to the buffet to fill their plates with delicious dinner options. Once everyone ate their fill, Arlene tossed her bouquet and Jay threw the garter before the two cut into their three-tiered wedding cake. A sugar rush led guests to the dance floor to party the remainder of the evening away.
