The sun was shining through The Attic windows at The Estate on Second as Breanna slipped into her mermaid-style wedding gown, grabbed her bouquet filled with white roses, and awaited her first look with her bridesmaids. A countdown from 3 began and all together, the bridesmaids dressed in black turned around to see Breanna glowing in her wedding look. Hugs were shared and compliments were given all around, then the girls posed for group photos together before the bride left for her first look with her groom.
Outside in the alley, Gary was standing with his back facing the door where Breanna was about to appear. He smiled as soon as he heard her approaching him and with a brush of the shoulder, he turned and saw his stunning bride to be standing before him. The two lovebirds shared a kiss and walked around the outside of The Estate taking pictures together as guests made their way inside the Crystal Ballroom for their ceremony. A golden arbor decorated in red and white roses stood in front of the center Palladian window where Breanna and Gary would soon be exchanging vows. Guests signed the guest book then took their seats awaiting the arrival of the bride and groom. Music cued up and Gary was first to walk down the aisle. Breanna walked out last and found her place next to her groom. The two recited their vows in front of family and friends and sealed the deal with a kiss as they were pronounced husband and wife.
While the bride and groom were off enjoying newlywed bliss, guests were enjoying cocktail hour beverages and hors d’oeuvres. Guests grabbed Ellie’s Parmesan Meatballs and Crab Cakes at their leisure and sipped on the bride and groom’s signature cocktails; a Melon Margarita and Old Fashioned. Before long, everyone was ushered back into the Crystal Ballroom where tables were topped with gold chargers and red napkins. The newlyweds made their grand entrance and shared their first dance before taking a seat at the head table. Vibrant red rose centerpieces and romantic candles decorated the top of the table and a neon sign hung from the arbor backdrop. Friends and family shared toasts, then dinner was served. Sliced Tomato with Buffalo Mozzarella, Italian Chopped Salad, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Pesto Crusted Salmon, and Roasted Broccolini made up the menu created by our Event Specialist, Brittany, along with the bride and groom during their planning process. After dinner, a 2-tier wedding cake was cut and shared and a fun dessert bar opened. Energized from dinner and dessert, guests ended the evening on the dance floor showing off their moves.
