Merissa met Parker in The Attic at The Estate on Second to share vows they had written for each other before their wedding ceremony. Merissa walked over to Parker who had his back turned towards her so he wouldn’t sneak a peek before she walked down the aisle. In a beautiful white lace dress with dramatic trail, Merissa stood back to back with her future husband. While sweet words were being shared in The Attic, guests were filling seats downstairs in the Crystal Ballroom. It was decorated with greenery, white rose petals and blush colored flowers from the floor to the center Palladian window. Once everyone was seated, the wedding party made their grand entrance down the aisle. When Merissa stepped out, Parker couldn’t keep his eyes off her and the two were beaming with happiness throughout the entire ceremony.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour beverages and Filet & Wild Mushroom Wellingtons before being seated for dinner. The newlyweds opted for our fun and interactive Small Plate Stations. A Bruschetta Station, French Fry Station, Taco Station with Grilled Pollo Asado and Al Pastor Tacos, and Slider Station with Crab Cake Sliders and Smoked Beef Brisket Sliders were stationed around the venue for guests to grab food from at their leisure. Memories were shared during toasts and the bouquet was tossed before the crowd broke out their dance moves. A dance intermission was made for the cake cutting. A 3-tiered white and chocolate cake with strawberry crème and vanilla Bavarian filling all iced in French buttercream was shared between Merissa and Parker before guests continued to dance the night away.
