A Dramatic Floral Reception

The Estate on Second was dimly lit and decorated in dramatic, deep purple flowers mixed with lighter hydrangeas and delilahs for Sara and Joel’s wedding reception evoking a sense of elegance and romance for the evening. Guests were greeted at The Veranda where a cozy, chic set up awaited. Inside, invitees were able to choose from two signature cocktails or muddle their own mixture at our scratch bar while snacking on our Bruschetta Station and Fig, Goat Cheese and Mascarpone Tarts.

Once the bride and groom arrived, dinner was served: Zucchini Lime Chicken, Chicken Florentine, Filet Mignon Carvery, or Poke Station. And what goes better after dinner than dessert? We set up a S’more station with an assortment of toppings like Hershey’s Chocolate Bars, Peppermint Patties, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

A conga line made its way around the interior of the Estate stopping at the dance floor to end the evening.

A Wedding Reception for the Free Spirit

I dos were exchanged and now it was time to let loose and have a good time with family and friends. Stella and Michael, along with their wedding party, snacked on sweet and salty treats, sipped on cocktails, and sat back with a cigar while everyone was making their way over to Hangar 21. Before the reception could commence, the bride and groom hopped on a helicopter ride for their grand entrance.

Orange and peach roses, orchids, and ranunculus were the star of the show on each tabletop while the sweetheart table was decorated in tall orange candles, eucalyptus garland, and a macramé backdrop. The seating chart was travel inspired and mimicked an airport flight arrival board. Delectable bites like Warm Monterey Jack Cheese with Chorizo and Fresh Mushroom with Jay’s Famous Tortilla Chips and Basil Cream Cheese Torte with Crackers were ready to be devoured for cocktail hour along with his and hers specialty craft cocktails.

The bride and groom touched down just in time for toasts and dinner. Mahi Mahi and Al Pastor Street Tacos with Handmade Corn and Flour Tortillas were on the menu along with Skewers and Freshly Baked Flatbread. Once everyone finished their meals, the evening was filled with arcade games, dancing, and picture taking inside a photo booth bus.

Mike and Anne's Adventure Themed Wedding

You can say we ‘caught the travel bug’ at Mike and Anne’s wedding. Adventure inspired decor filled the Hangar 21 space from the chalkboard backdrop where Anne and Mike exchanged vows with the quote, “Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure,” to little planes and globes on their gift table. Pops of teal, white roses, and green succulents made an appearance across each table while string lights illuminated the venue.

Anne and Mike took flight between their wedding and reception while guests snacked on Beef Empanadas with Cilantro Sour Cream and Jay’s Famous Tortilla Chips & Salsa with Queso Fundito – Yum! To wash it down, the bar offered beer and wine selections.

The rest of the evening was filled with a delicious dinner of Tequila Lime Chicken, Ranch Style Beans, Pasilla Rice, and Spicy Flame Grilled Corn, a fun photo bus to take pictures with the bride and groom, and a sparkler send off.

Shout out to Eunice, our Event Specialist, for helping Mike and Anne have the perfect day!

Step Into This Eclectic, Vintage Reception

Charles and Vy’s eclectic, vintage reception was decorated with a mixture of textures from the bride’s delicate lace dress, to the decorated brick walls of The Estate. A custom wooden backdrop that held small candles and flowers was placed against the walls to add even more dimension to the space. Instax cameras topped a vintage dresser for guests to snap memorable moments during cocktail hour. Once snapped, you could put the image into a book and write a loving blurb to the bride and groom. A macramé photo backdrop outlined in fresh greenery and roses made for fun group shots. Chicken spring rolls with peanut sauce were tray passed while guests could choose from a Manhattan or Moscow Mule his and hers cocktail.

After cocktail hour, dinner was served. Delicious options like our Tuscan braised beef short ribs, Atlantic salmon filet and vegetable stuffed portobello mushrooms filled everyone’s plates. A 3-tiered wedding cake covered in white buttercream icing followed shortly after.

Guests danced the night away on the dance floor in front of a larger than life marquee light up love sign.

Special thanks to Hannah, our Director of Sales, for helping Charles and Vy bring their special day to life.
