Kassandra got ready inside the Bridal Suite at The Estate on Second, then headed downstairs for her first look with Armando. In front of the venue’s brick facade, she tapped her groom’s shoulder and he turned to face her. Smiles filled both their faces and sweet compliments were exchanged as they soaked in the intimate moment together. After, the couple wandered around outside posing for pictures with their photographer, then lined up for the ceremony.
Jewel colored flowers decorated the Crystal Ballroom where guests began filing in. Once everyone was seated, the music cued up and the wedding party made their entrances ending with Kassandra. In front of all their closest friends and family, the bride and groom read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
Roasted Red Cherry Tomato Bruschetta and Fig, Goat Cheese and Mascarpone Tarts made their rounds during cocktail hour while the bar served up the newlywed’s signature drinks, a Lemon Drop and Old Fashioned. Guests mixed and mingled, and Armando and Kassandra smiled for the camera as husband and wife, then it was time for dinner.
The Crystal Ballroom was filled with flowers and navy details. The bride and groom made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, then took a seat at their sweetheart table. Zucchini Lime Chicken, Tri-Tip Carvery, Tortellini with Creamy Pesto, Mashed Potatoes, Julienne Vegetables, and Wild Cherry Salad was served. The menu was selected by the couple with help from our event specialist, Patti. While everyone enjoyed dinner, some special guests stood and shared toasts. Glasses clinked in the air, then the newlyweds cut into their 2-tiered wedding cake and invited everyone to indulge in our Homemade Donut Station and Vanilla Bean Cream Eclairs for dessert. The evening ended with everyone out on the dance floor showing off their best moves and celebrating Kassandra and Armando’s marriage.
