Rainy, Romantic Winter Wedding at Grand Gimeno
Arielle and Dean got ready separately inside the Powder Room and Parlor at Grand Gimeno, then met in the Courtyard for their first look. On the count of three, Dean turned around to see his beautiful wife standing before him. Huge smiles filled both their faces and sweet compliments were shared. After, the couple wandered around the venue posing for pictures with their photographer until it was time for the ceremony.
Once the Ketubah was signed, the bride and groom walked down the candlelit aisle. Under a chuppah decorated with roses, Arielle and Dean participated in a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony in front of family and friends. With the breaking of the glass, the crowd cheered and the bride and groom sealed the ceremony with a celebratory kiss.
Skinny Margarita and Dirty Martini signature drinks were being served at the bar while Thai Vegetable Spring Rolls were tray passed during cocktail hour. Neapolitan and Classic BBQ Chicken Pizzas made their way from the pizza oven to the Foyer as a special treat while guests mixed and mingled. At the end of cocktail hour, everyone was invited to check the seating chart and find their assigned tables for reception.
Tables were topped with white and light pink florals, candles, and printed menus. Once guests found their assigned seats, the newlyweds made their grand entrance and took a seat at their sweetheart table. A dinner of Roasted Atlantic Salmon, Cabernet Braised Short Ribs, Tortellini with Creamy Pesto, Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Vegetable Medley, and Caesar Salad was served. Family and friends shared toasts and glasses clinked in the air after the last speech ended, then the couple cut into their 2-tiered white cake with strawberry creme filling. After serving each other a bite, Arielle and Dean invited their guests to indulge in our Classic Dessert Station with an assortment of Raspberry Chocolate Decadence Cakes, Fresh Fruit Tarts, Vanilla Bean Chocolate Eclairs, Mango and Passion Fruit Macarons, and French Apple Tarts and Cookie and Milk Shots. The evening ended with everyone out on the dance floor dancing with the bride and groom and wishing them well in their future together.
