Green + Erik, The Estate on Second

Erik suited up in the Attic while Green added the finishing touches to her bridal attire downstairs at The Estate on Second. When the two were both ready, Green headed upstairs for a blind first touch with her groom. Back-to-back, the couple read personalized vows, laughed, and cried together, then headed downstairs to line up for the ceremony.

Guests entered The Estate, signed the bride and groom’s guest book, then took a seat. Eucalyptus and white flowers decorated the center Palladian window and sparkling chandeliers hung overhead. Once everyone had arrived, Erik led the processional and Green closed it out. In front of their friends and family, the bride and groom recited vows, exchanged rings, and shared a sweet kiss as everyone cheered from the audience.

Guests enjoyed Fried Chicken and Waffle Bites and Mini Corn Dogs during cocktail hour along with beer, wine, and the newlywed’s signature cocktails, a Moscow Mule and Mojito. While guests mixed and mingled, Erik and Green were off with their photographer posing for golden hour photos. The two wandered around downtown and reunited with their guests at the end of cocktail hour, just in time for an outfit change and dinner!

Tables were draped with ivory linen and topped with fresh flowers and candles. Guests found their assigned seats and the bride and groom made their grand entrance that transitioned into their first dance. After, family and friends made toasts and dinner was served. BBQ Boneless Chicken, Sliced Beef Brisket, Mashed Potatoes, Macaroni and Cheese, and Caesar Salad filled everyone’s plates. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our Event Specialist, Brittany. After dinner, a traditional tea ceremony was shared between both families, then the cake was cut and our famous Kouign Amann dessert station opened. The evening ended with guests dancing and posing in the photo booth with the bride and groom for take-home keepsakes.
