Rustic Brunch Wedding at The Estate on Second
The bridesmaids dressed in pink shared one last sip of champagne in The Suite with the bride before lining up for their grand entrances. The groomsmen and groom were ready to go and anxiously awaiting the pull of the curtains in fashionably floral ties and matching navy suits. Guests arrived to The Estate on Second and took a seat inside the Crystal Ballroom where a rustic backdrop with hanging carnations was set for Daniel and Ann’s wedding day. Conversations were soon hushed as the music began and Daniel made his entrance down the aisle followed by the rest of the bridal party and ending with Ann. Sweet smiles filled everyone's faces as they watched the bride inch closer and closer to her groom until they were side by side at the head of the aisle. Traditional wedding vows were exchanged and rings were placed on the bride and groom’s fingers before the two sealed the deal with a kiss. The crowd cheered as Daniel and Ann were pronounced husband and wife concluding the ceremony.
Cocktail hour was filled with fun Orange Juice, Peach and Pineapple Mimosas that complimented the brunch wedding perfectly. Caprese Skewers and Fig, Goat Cheese & Mascarpone Tarts were tray passed around the room for a delicious snack before the reception while the bridal party wandered around outside posing for pictures. Before long, everyone found their seat for brunch and eagerly awaited the newlyweds. Tables were topped with ivory linens and matching napkins creating a light and airy atmosphere. Little succulents were placed above each napkin as a thank you gift from the bride and groom and white flowers and greenery were arranged as centerpieces. Ann and Daniel danced their way into their reception and took a seat at their sweetheart table for toasts. Friends and family shared kind words and memories, then each table was excused to fill their plated. A fantastic menu of Blueberry French Toast Casserole, Scrambled Eggs with Bacon, Ham and Onion, Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Bacon Crumble, Fresh Fruit, and O’Brien Potatoes was pre-selected by the bride and groom along with our Event Specialist, Casey, during the couple’s planning process. Brunch did not disappoint and scored Ann and Daniel extra points from their guests for serving something fun. Just because this was a brunch wedding doesn’t mean that the couple missed out on dessert! After everyone finished their meals, a Classic Dessert Station was unveiled with an assortment of French Macarons, Raspberry Chocolate Decadence, Fresh Fruit Tarts, Vanilla Bean Chocolate Eclairs and French Apple Tarts for everyone to enjoy. The bride and groom cut their white wedding cake with raspberry filling and French buttercream icing and enjoyed dessert with their guests before breaking out all the interactive wedding traditions. After filling up on sweets, the bouquet and garter were tossed in an eventful performance and the bride and groom got everyone out on the dance floor to show off their moves before their special day came to an end.
