After slipping into her wedding dress, Cindy approached her bridal party for their first look. On the count of three, they all turned around to see the beautiful bride standing before them. Excitement filled the room and jaws hit the floor. A group hug and compliments were shared, then it was time for Cindy’s first look with Mitch. The wedding party watched as Cindy walked gracefully over to her groom and tapped his shoulder. Without hesitation, Mitch turned around and smiled with loving eyes. The couple soaked in the precious moment, then headed outside with their bridesmaids and groomsmen to take group photos before guests arrived. The guys in black and the girls in blue posed around the venue with the bride and groom creating unforgettable moments. Before long, guests started arriving, so the group headed inside to line up for ceremony.
Guests arrived at The Estate on Second, signed Cindy and Mitch’s guest book, then headed inside to take a seat. A triangular arbor stood tall at the head of the aisle as the ceremony backdrop and was decorated in peach and white florals. Once everyone had arrived, the wedding party made their entrances ending with Cindy. Together at the head of the aisle and in front of all their friends and family, the bride and groom read personal vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
The bar was pouring the newlywed’s signature cocktails, a French 75 and Pineapple Margarita, while guests snacked on Charcuterie Tray appetizers and tray passed Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and Crab Cakes. The bride and groom snuck away for golden hour romantics while everyone mixed and mingled. Upon the newlywed’s return, the Crystal Ballroom was set for ceremony and guests were invited to find their tables.
Tables were draped in grey linen and topped with floral filled bud vases and candles. Dried citrus place cards helped guests find their assigned seats and the ceremony backdrop now became the sweetheart table backdrop. Once everyone was seated, the bride and groom made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, then took a seat. Dinner consisted of Chicken Marsala, Tri-Tip Carvery, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Red Roasted Garlic Potatoes, Green Beans, and Pear and Walnut Salad was served to hungry guests. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our Event Specialist, Casey. Family and friends shared toasts and glasses clinked in the air as each speech concluded. Once dinner came to an end, Cindy and Mitch cut into their wedding cake and invited everyone to indulge in dessert. Energized from sweets, guests hit the dance floor with the bride and groom. The evening ended with a sparkling send off and many memories to share for years to come.
