Future doctors Daliya + Matt Cikra tied the knot at The Loft on Pine on July 3, 2016! Their chemistry was truly (and literally!) the center of attention on this beautiful day! The lovebirds had a science themed wedding, from their unique chemistry unity ceremony, to their periodic table seating chart and their tabletop chemical elements and test tubes decor, this couple really knows how to show off their chemical bond!
Most of the decor and flowers were all beautifully crafted by the wedding party themselves, with help from Olivia Reil who was their wedding coordinator on the day. Their hair and makeup was done by Luong Lasting and the Bride’s beautiful gown was by Morilee by Madeline Gardner!
Jay’s Event Specialist Emily Anderson helped the Cikra’s assemble their menu and specialty drinks for the night. After the ceremony, guests were invited to snack on hor d’oeuvres and signature drinks created for the couple. They chose our famous Filet & Wild Mushroom Wellingtons with bearnaise sauce, Crab Cakes with mango papaya salsa, and Chicken Empanadas served with a cilantro cream. The couple’s signature drinks for the night were Moscow Mules and Manhattans. They also had a full premium bar with our awesome mixologists on hand and a coffee station for a little pick me up… that is if the dance floor vibes by VOX DJ’s wasn’t enough!
At dinner we served our Classic Buffet with Chicken Primavera, a chicken breast stuffed with vegetables and parmesan cheese served in a champagne cream sauce. On the side we served a vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, gourmet mashed potatoes, grilled marinated vegetables, and a Pear & Walnut Salad.
For dessert the newlyweds had the most adorable, simple wedding cake. It was a white cake with vanilla bavarian filling and a french buttercream icing. They also chose a delicious selection of cupcakes for everyone to enjoy. Flavors included white cake with coconut bavarian filling, chocolate cake with vanilla bavarian filling, carrot cake with cream cheese filling and red velvet cake with cream cheese, all iced with our decadent french buttercream icing. (As you can imagine, it was delicious!)
Congratulations to this fun pair of future doctors, Daliya + Matt! We also want to give a special thanks to their photographer Jonathan Yacoub and videographer Mon Villacorta at TWENTYSEVEN Studios! Be sure to play their wedding video below to watch their super sweet moments!
