Farmers Market Foodie Wedding at Grand Gimeno
Kelly and James got ready inside the Powder Room and Parlor at Grand Gimeno then headed outside for their first look. A tap of the shoulder turned James around and smiles filled both the bride and groom’s faces. Compliments were exchanged and the couple wandered around the venue with their photographer for portraits together and with their wedding party. As soon as guests began arriving, the bridal party lined up for ceremony.
Guests entered the Olive Grove, grabbed a snack, signed James and Kelly’s guest book, and headed to their seats. Hanging white flowers were tied from tree to tree and pink roses decorated the fountain as the ceremony backdrop. Once everyone was in attendance, the wedding party made their entrances. In front of their closest friends and family, James and Kelly read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
Wood-Fired Sweet and Salty Pancetta and Carnitas Chipotle Pizzas were cut and served fresh from the oven for cocktail hour while the bar was stirring up the newlywed’s signature drinks, a Paloma and Moscow Mule. Guests mixed and mingled and posed for pictures with the bride and groom until it was time for reception. To find their assigned table, each guest headed to the produce stand escort display where names and table numbers were written on the leaves of fruit, then headed inside.
Tables were topped with greenery and pink floral centerpieces and each place setting housed a printed dinner menu. The bride and groom made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at the sweetheart table. Toasts were shared and dinner was served. After dinner, the newlyweds cut into their two-tiered white wedding cake with strawberry creme filling and invited their guests to indulge in our Classic Dessert Station with a collection of French Macarons, Raspberry Chocolate Decadence, Fresh Fruit Tarts, Vanilla Bean Chocolate Eclairs, and French Apple Tarts. The evening ended with everyone out on the dance floor celebrating and dancing the night away.
