After toasting with champagne, Samantha slipped away to change into her wedding gown. Each bridesmaid anxiously awaited the bride’s big reveal with their hands covering their eyes. With a countdown of 3, 2, 1, a shrill of excitement filled the air when Samantha’s bridesmaids saw her for the first time all done up in her wedding look. Happy tears were shed and hugs were shared all around the room before the girls added their finishing touches to their looks and posed for group photos. Each bridesmaid was dressed in a soft pink, off the shoulder dress that perfectly complemented their white and pink bouquets. Once all photos were taken, the group headed over to the church to line up for the ceremony.
Guests arrived to an outdoor ceremony overlooking the ocean and took their seats. Zach and his groomsmen were ready to go in their black suits with matching bow ties and were first to lead the charge down the aisle. Samantha was last, arm-in-arm with her mother and father. Zach tried his best to hold back tears when he saw Samantha for the first time that day walking down the aisle. Guests listened intently as the bride and groom exchanged traditional vows and shared their love story. The ceremony concluded with a sweet kiss and everyone made their way to cocktail hour at a private residence.
Beer and wine was flowing and hungry guests enjoyed snacking on Chicken Satay and Thai Vegetable Spring Rolls with peanut sauce. A welcome table was set up with a guestbook to leave the couple well wishes and homemade limoncello take away thank you gifts were displayed. Competitive rounds of cornhole were played while guests awaited Zach and Samantha’s arrival for dinner. Tables were draped in ivory linen and arrangements of white roses and greenery centerpieces added interest. The bride and groom’s arrival brought everyone to their feet as they watched the newlyweds share their first dance. Afterwards, dinner was served. Caesar Salad, Pear & Walnut Salad, Pollo Asado and Carnitas Street Tacos, and Italian Meatball and Cabernet Braised Short Rib Sliders filled guests plates. There was really something for everyone! Zach and Samantha worked with our Event Specialist, Brianna, to ensure that their menu would be well received by their attendees. Dinner was so delicious that some even went back for seconds! Once everyone finished dinner, the cake was cut and served and sweet tooths were satisfied. Pumped up from a sugar high, the bride and groom and friends and family hit the dance floor showing off all their moves. Lots of dancing worked up an appetite and our famous Turkey Palm Sandwiches were served as a late night snack. The evening ended with a beautiful sparkler send off and uproar of cheers for Samantha and Zach.
