Jon + Brooke, The Estate on Second

Brooke and Jon got ready inside The Estate on Second then met outside for their first look. With Palladian windows framing them in, the bride and groom turned to face each other. Smiles filled their faces and sweet compliments were shared. After the intimate moments, the couple was joined by their wedding party for group pictures. Together, everyone posed for the photographer and made lasting memories before lining up for the ceremony.

Inside the Crystal Ballroom, greenery and white florals lined the aisle and decorated the ceremony backdrop. Once everyone was in attendance, the music cued up and the wedding party made their entrances ending with Brooke. In front of all their closest friends and family, Jon and Brooke read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.

Ellie’s Parmesan Meatballs and Fig, Goat Cheese and Mascarpone Tarts were tray passed around the Speakeasy while French 75 and Gimlet signature drinks were being served at the bar for cocktail hour. Guests signed the bride and groom’s guest book and mixed and mingled until it was time to head back into the Crystal Ballroom for reception.

Tables were topped with floral filled bud vases and flickering candles added to the romantic ambiance. Brooke and Jon made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at their head table. Lemon and Thyme Glazed Chicken, Tortellini with Creamy Pesto, Roasted Broccolini, Grilled Marinated Vegetables and Caesar Salad were served while toasts were shared. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Patti. After dinner, the newlyweds invited everyone to indulge in our Italian Dessert Station with a collection of Fresh Fruit Tarts, Chocolate Dipped Cannoli, Florentine Cookies, Meyer Lemon Cheesecake Bars, and Mini Italiano Tiramisu Cupcakes. The evening ended with everyone out on the dance floor showing off their best moves.
