Jessica + Bryan, The Estate on Second

Sunlight soaked The Attic at The Estate on Second while the girls were putting final touches on Jessica’s gorgeous bridal look. Her white wedding gown with dainty neckline trim fit her like a glove while her veil cascaded behind her. The boys grabbed a beer and shared a few laughs as guests arrived and took their seats inside The Crystal Ballroom. The ballroom was decorated in organic greenery crawling up the walls to the ceiling and along our center Palladian window. Candles marked the sides of the aisleway while white carnations were lightly scattered around and bouquets of baby’s breath, white roses and a lush mixture of leaves clung to the back of chairs. Jessica made her way down the aisle to a teary-eyed groom. They each read personalized vows to one another and shared a kiss to end their ceremony. With huge smiles on their faces, they walked down the aisle and out of the ballroom into cocktail hour.

Guests were invited to snack on Caprese Skewers with Pesto & Basil and Fontina Cheese, Caramelized Onion, Sundried Tomato, and Pancetta Flatbread Pizza while the wedding party took pictures. The bar also opened and was pouring beer, wine, and the newlyweds signature cocktails: An Old Fashioned and Hawaiian Mule. After about an hour of mingling, everyone made their way inside to their seats for the reception portion of the evening. The green and white theme continued across each tabletop with garland and floral placements. The wedding party make their grand entrance, toasts were made, and dinner was served. Grilled Marinated Vegetables, Caesar Salad, Tortellini with Creamy Pesto, Chicken Parmigiana, and Roasted Italian Zucchini filled guests’ plates before Jessica and Bryan cut their wedding cake. The cake was shared only by the bride and groom and the lucky guests got to indulge in our Classic Dessert Station with an assortment of French Macarons, Raspberry Chocolate Decadence, Fresh Fruit Tarts, Vanilla Bean Chocolate Eclairs and French Apple Tarts.

After guests filled up on all things savory and sweet, they hit the dance floor for the most memorable night. The bride and groom really knew how to keep the party going by showing off their dance moves and singing karaoke with all their invitees. Then fun continued outside for Jessica and Bryan’s send off. Everyone cheered as the newlyweds made an epic smoke bomb exit.
