Celeste slipped into her shoes and fastened her accessories inside the Bridal Suite at The Estate on Second while David suited up downstairs. Exposed brick and original hardwood lending to the charming morning moments, Celeste embraced the special time with her bridesmaids before heading downstairs for her first look where David was already waiting. A tap of the shoulder turned him around to see his stunning bride standing before him in a lace applique gown and matching veil. The couple exchanged sweet compliments, then headed off with their photographer for photos together before the ceremony.
Guests signed the bride and groom’s guest book and found a seat inside the Crystal Ballroom. White flowers and candles lined the aisle and were arranged in front of the center Palladian window. As soon as everyone was in attendance, music cued up and the wedding party made their entrances. In front of their closest friends and family, Celeste and David read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
Cocktail hour in the Speakeasy was accompanied by tray passed Mini Turkey and Ham Palm Sandwiches and Gloria’s Caramelized Bacon Wrapped Franks. The bar was serving beer wine, and the newlywed’s signature drinks, Old Fashioned cocktails and Classic Margaritas. Everyone mixed and mingled until it was time to head back into the Crystal Ballroom for reception.
Tables were topped with white floral arrangements and pops of black. Guests checked the seating chart and took their seats. Celeste and David made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, then sat at their sweetheart table. BBQ Boneless Chicken, Sliced Beef Brisket, Gourmet Mashed Potatoes, Panko Crusted Mac N Cheese, and Warm Skillet Corn Bread was served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Selena. While everyone enjoyed dinner, family and friends stood to share toasts. After dinner and dessert, Celeste changed into her party dress and hit the dance floor. The evening ended with everyone showing off their best moves and sharing their well wishes with the bride and groom.
