Rustic Wedding in the Crystal Ballroom
Kelley and Kevin met upstairs at The Estate on Second for their first look. Kevin wore a navy suit with black details and had his back facing the staircase awaiting his bride. Kelley was dressed in a lace wedding gown and slowly approached her groom. A tap of the shoulder turned Kevin around to see Kelley standing before him. Smiles filled both their faces and sweet compliments were exchanged. The couple posed for a few photos alone, then with their wedding party just outside before lining up for the ceremony.
Eucalyptus, roses, and pampas grass decorated the Crystal Ballroom. Guests arrived, signed the bride and groom’s guest book, then took a seat. As soon as everyone was in attendance, the processional began. With their bridesmaids and groomsmen beside them, Kevin and Kelley recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a celebratory kiss.
Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and Thai Chicken Spring Rolls were tray passed while Moscow Mule and Sex on the Beach signature drinks were being poured for cocktail hour. The newlyweds snuck away from the crowd to take photos as husband and wife with their photographer while everyone mixed and mingled inside. Upon their return, it was time for dinner.
Back in the Crystal Ballroom, tables were topped with floral centerpieces and glasses of champagne met guests at each seat. Kelley and Kevin made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at their sweetheart table for toasts. A dinner of Chicken Veronique, Tri-Tip Carvery, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Vegetable Medley, and Pear and Walnut Salad was served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Casey. While everyone enjoyed dinner, friends and family stood and shared toasts. Glasses clinked in the air when the last speech ended, and dessert was served. The evening ended with many photos in the photo booth and everyone out on the dance floor dancing and singing the night away.
