A tap on the shoulder signaled Michael to turn around for his first look with Guadalupe outside of The Estate on Second. As soon as their eyes met, smiles filled their faces and sweet compliments were exchanged. The couple wandered around downtown, then were joined by their wedding party for group photos. The bridesmaids were dressed in rust-colored dresses and the groomsmen wore grey. Together, they posed for the camera while creating lasting memories until guests began arriving for the ceremony.
A champagne wall greeted guests as they entered the Crystal Ballroom for Guadalupe and Michael’s wedding. Peach, white, and blue flowers decorated the ceremony backdrop and aisle and sparkling chandeliers hung above. Once everyone was seated, the bride and groom made their entrances and stood together at the head of the aisle. In front of all their closest friends and family, the two read vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
Moscow Mule and Coconut Mai Tai signature cocktails were being poured at the bar while guests snacked on Bulgogi Beef Bao and Thai 3 Flavored Chicken Bao. While everyone was mixing and mingling, the newlyweds wandered around the venue with their photographer posing for photos as husband and wife. After getting a first look at their reception space, Michael and Guadalupe invited their guests back into the Crystal Ballroom for dinner.
Tables were topped with eucalyptus and pops of rust decorated the room. Once everyone had found their table, the bride and groom made their grand entrance and shared their first dance. A dinner of Chicken Parmigiana, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Roasted Italian Zucchini, Red Roasted Garlic Potatoes, and Caesar Salad was then served. The menu was selected by Michael and Guadalupe with help from our Event Specialist, Brittany. While guests ate, toasts were made. Friends and family stood and shared their favorite bride and groom memories and glasses clinked in the air after each speech. After dinner the newlyweds cut into their 2-tiered marble cake with chocolate mousse filling and whipped cream icing and invited their guests to indulge in a slice. The evening ended out on the dance floor where everyone danced the night away in celebration.
