Kirsten and Chris met upstairs at The Estate on Second for their first look as their bridal party watched from the sidelines. With a tap of the shoulder, Chris turned around to see his beautiful bride. Excitement filled the room as smiles spread across the bride and groom’s faces. The couple exchanged sweet compliments, hugs, and kisses, then were joined by their groomsmen and bridesmaids for group pictures. The bridesmaids in pink and groomsmen in grey surrounded Kirsten and Chris and posed for the camera while creating lasting memories. With bouquets in hand and boutonnieres pinned, the wedding party then lined up for ceremony.
Guests signed blank sneakers then headed into the Crystal Ballroom to take a seat. The aisle was lined with greenery and candles to match the floral ceremony backdrop. Once everyone was in attendance, Chris took his place, and the wedding party made their entrances ending with Kirsten. In front of all their family and friends, the bride and groom read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
Thai Vegetable Spring Rolls and Sticky Pork Belly Bites awaited guests as they trickled into cocktail hour. The bar was serving up Chris and Kirsten’s signature drinks, a Hawaiian Mule and G&T while everyone mixed and mingled. Meanwhile, the newlyweds were utilizing golden hour for photos together outside the venue. Upon their return, it was time for dinner.
Back in the Crystal Ballroom, tables were decorated with pink floral centerpieces and even more pops of pink at each place setting. As soon as everyone found their assigned tables, Chris and Kirsten made their grand entrance and shared their first dance. Next, dinner was served. Thai Three Flavored BBQ Chicken, Korean Bulgogi Beef, White Rice, Far East Wok Long Beans, and Flat Noodles with Black Bean Sauce had been selected by the bride and groom with help from our Event Specialist, Sierra. While everyone enjoyed dinner, family and friends shared toasts. Glasses clinked in the air as each speech ended and the newlyweds shared a thank you to their guests. After dinner, Kirsten and Chris cut into their wedding cake and invited their guests to indulge in dessert before hitting the dance floor. The evening ended dance battles, showing off dance moves, and one big celebration.
