Fresh Fall Wedding at Grand Gimeno

Michelle and Brandon met outside of Grand Gimeno for their first look after getting ready inside the Parlor and Powder Room. Bridesmaids and groomsmen were glued to the windows at the bride made her walk over to the groom. With a tap of the shoulder, Brandon turned around to see his beautiful wife standing before him. Between the wedding party cheering and Brandon in awe of his soon to be wife, excitement filled the air. The couple read personalized vows, posed for pictures together and with their wedding party, then lined up for the ceremony.

Guests entered the Olive Grove, signed the bride and groom’s guest book, then took a seat. Fresh florals decorated the ceremony space where Michelle and Brando would soon be standing, and live music drifted through the breeze. Once everyone was seated, the wedding party made their entrances ending with Michelle. Together in front of all their closest friends and family, the bride and groom recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.

The smell of fresh pizza from the wood-fired pizza oven filled the air and slices were cut and served to guests to kick off cocktail hour. Caprese Skewers with Pesto and Beef Picadillo Empanadas made their rounds, and beer and wine were poured at the bar. Guests mixed and mingled while the newlywed’s made their rounds thanking everyone for coming, and just as the sun set, it was time to head inside for reception.

Tables were topped with floral centerpieces and white candles illuminating the space in flickering light. Brandon and Michelle made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at their sweetheart table. Grilled Panzanella Salad was served first followed by Cabernet Braised Short Ribs and Chicken Sonoma with Roasted Broccolini and Gourmet Mashed Potatoes. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Arielle. Guests enjoyed dinner while family and friends stood to share toasts. After dinner, the newlyweds invited everyone to indulge in our Kouign Amann Dessert Station. The evening ended with an entertaining shoe game that had everyone laughing, plenty of photos in the photo booth, and a signed marriage license.
