Arnold + Lisa, The Estate on Second

Lisa and Arnold met for their first look upstairs at The Estate on Second. A tap on the shoulder turned Arnold around to see his beautiful bride standing before him in an off the shoulder lace wedding dress. The couple exchanged sweet compliments and posed for a few photos then headed downstairs for ceremony.

Guests arrived for Arnold and Lisa’s wedding, signed the bride and groom’s guestbook, then took their seats inside the Crystal Ballroom. Bouquets of white and toffee colored flowers lined the aisle and decorated two tall pillars as the ceremony backdrop. Once everyone was in attendance, the bride and groom made their entrances and were joined together in front of the center Palladian window. With friends and family as their witnesses, Lisa and Arnold read personal vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.

Everyone found their way to cocktail hour where Crab Cakes and Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons were being tray passed. The bar was mixing up the newlywed’s signature cocktails, a Paloma and Old Fashioned, for thirsty guests. While everyone mixed and mingled, the bride and groom wandered around the venue with their photographer posing for photos as husband and wife. Upon their return, it was time for dinner.

Tables were draped in ivory linen and topped with colorful floral centerpieces. Flickering candles lit each table and sparkling chandeliers completed the romantic ambiance. As soon as everyone found their assigned tables, Lisa and Arnold made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat. Tri-Tip Carvery, Santorini Chicken, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Red Roasted Garlic Potatoes, Green Beans, and Pear and Walnut Salad was served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom during their planning process with our event specialist, Brittany. Dinner was enjoyed and toasts were shared. Afterwards, the newlyweds cut into their two-tiered almond wedding cake and invited their guests to indulge in some dessert. The evening ended with everyone out on the dance floor celebrating the newly Mr. and Mrs.
