Robert gazed out of the windows in The Attic at The Estate on Second while his bride, Kendra, was putting the finishing touches on her look before their big reveal. The two met outside in front of the Chiarini Fountain, an iconic location loved by all couples at The Estate. Both the bride and groom stood back to back and read loving messages written by one another before turning around to see each other for the first time. Sweet smiles filled their faces when they saw each other. Kendra wore a beautiful long sleeve wedding dress with lace detail and Robert wore a stylish navy suit and red floral tie. As guests were arriving and taking their seat in the Crystal Ballroom, Kendra, Robert and the bridal party were finishing up pictures. Once they were done, everyone made their way into The Estate. Music cued up and the groom, bridesmaids, and groomsmen found their places, then came Kendra. She walked gracefully down the aisle and over to Robert and under a greenery and rose filled arch, the two exchanged their vows.
During cocktail hour, Pomodoro Bruschetta and Ellie’s Parmesan Meatballs were tray passed as guests enjoyed beverages from the bar. The newlyweds had signature cocktails at the bar for guests to order: The Hawaiian Mule and a White Sangria. While everyone mixed and mingled, Robert and Kendra were outside the front of The Estate taking more couple photos as newlyweds. Soon enough, dinner was announced, and guests found their seats back inside the Crystal Ballroom. Kendra and Robert made their grand entrance which turned into their first dance. Toasts were made, then dinner was served. Italian Lasagna, Stuffed Pasta Shells, Tomatoes with Buffalo Mozzarella, Caesar Salad, and Grilled Marinated Vegetables filled guests’ plates. After dinner, the couple shared their cake cutting. A marble cake with chocolate Bavarian filling and French buttercream icing. The remainder of the evening was spent dancing with close friends and family before sending off the bride and groom.
