Kyla + Jonathan, The Estate on Second

After getting ready, Jonathan and Kyla met upstairs at The Estate on Second for their first look. With a brush of the shoulder, Jonathan turned around to see Kyla in her chiffon wedding dress. Huge smiles filled both their faces and compliments were exchanged. The two posed together for photos, then met their wedding party outside for group pictures. The groomsmen were suited up in black and the bridesmaids wore emerald. Memories were made and captured, then everyone lined up inside for ceremony.

Guests arrived and found their seats inside the Crystal Ballroom where dried florals decorated the ceremony space. A live harpist began playing and Jonathan made his entrance followed by the rest of the wedding party and ending with the bride. In front of their closest friends and family, the bride and groom recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a sweet kiss. Guests cheered as the newlyweds exited the ceremony and headed into cocktail hour.

Antipasto Skewers, Gloria’s Caramelized Bacon Wrapped Mini Franks and Mini Tri Tip Sliders were tray passed while everyone mingled. Kyla and Jonathan snuck away to take a few photos together as husband and wife, then joined their party for the end of cocktail hour. The couple and their friends made sure to stop by the fake tattoo station for some ink before heading back into the Crystal Ballroom for dinner.

Inside the ballroom, tables were draped in our Cambria linen and topped with garland, black napkins, and candles. Once everyone had found their assigned seats, Kyla and Jonathan made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, then took a seat with the rest of their guests. A dinner of Chicken Marsala, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Au Gratin Potatoes, Green Beans, and Caesar Salad was served, then toasts were shared. Glasses of champagne clinked in the air after each speech and friendly conversations continued throughout dinner. The evening ended with a cake cutting and shimmery, silver pompom send-off.
