Anstiss stunned her bridesmaids when she stepped out in a classic, elegant a-line wedding gown. A crystal belt sparkled at the top of her lace skirt where it met the structured bodice and her updo exposed a plunging back. The girls couldn’t wait to see Eric’s reaction to his beautiful bride. Meanwhile, the boys were making their way over for the big reveal. The groomsmen wore grey suits and light pink ties to match the pink color of the bridesmaid dresses, and the groom wore a navy suit with light pink bow tie to stand out from the rest. When Anstiss and Eric saw each other for the first time in their wedding attire, sparks flew and you could tell they were so deeply in love. Huge smiles filled their faces as the bridesmaids and groomsmen joined them for pictures before heading to the ceremony.
A hexagonal wooden structure that was decorated in pastel peach and pink roses stood tall as a backdrop for Anstiss and Eric’s ceremony. Eric was at the head of the aisle along with the rest of the bridal party as Anstiss made her walk arm in arm with her father. Once at the head of the aisle, the bride and groom exchanged handwritten vows, participated in a sand ceremony, and exchanged rings. Their officiant pronounced them as husband and wife and the crowd cheered as they exited into cocktail hour.
Caprese Skewers and Lemon Parmesan Artichoke Hearts were available for guests to snack on before dinner and bartenders were serving up guests’ choice. Anstiss and Eric preselected two signature drinks to share with their guests: A Blue Hawaiian and Moscow Mule. While everyone was enjoying light bites and beverage, Anstiss and Eric were able to sneak away into the gardens for some photos together.
As cocktail hour ended, guests were invited to sit down for dinner inside the greenhouse. A blue, green and pink seating chart led guests to their assigned tables just before Anstiss and Eric made their grand entrance. The two danced into the front of the greenhouse where they shared their official first dance together as husband and wife. Dinner was served and included Grilled Marinated Vegetables, Caesar Salad, Sliced Tomatoes with Buffalo Mozzarella, Chicken Piccata, and Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano - Jay’s award winning pasta creation. The bride and groom sat down to marked “hubby” and “wifey” chairs and their closest friends and family toasted to the happy couple. After dinner, the rest of the evening was filled with fun. From line dancing and cake cutting to the bouquet toss and a ribbon grand exit, Anstiss and Eric made their wedding a night to remember!
