Michelle and her bridesmaids were putting the finishing touches on their looks in The Bridal Suite while Jason and his groomsmen suited up in The Attic at The Estate on Second. Michelle wore a stunning A-line wedding gown with back button detailing and her bridesmaids were dressed in different shades of mauve maxi dresses. Each girl held a bouquet of white and peach roses bound tightly together that complimented the venue’s décor. When Jason and Michelle were both ready, Michelle stepped out of The Bridal Suite and into The Attic to share their first look. Jason turned around to see his gorgeous bride as water filled his eyes and loving tears fell down his face. Michelle wiped the tears from his face and the two fell into a warm embrace before heading to their ceremony.
The Crystal Ballroom was decorated in greenery and white and peach roses perched atop our center Palladian window. Candles and olive leaves lined the aisle while the bridesmaids, groomsmen and Jason made their way to their spots in front of friends and family. Michelle gracefully walked down the aisle and met Jason at the alter where they exchanged vows and broke bread together before being pronounced husband and wife. The whole ceremony was filled with so much love and before we knew it, guests were excused for cocktail hour.
Tray passed Filet & Wild Mushroom Wellingtons with Bearnaise Sauce and Crab Cakes with Mango Papaya Salsa hors d’oeuvres made their way around The Estate while guests grabbed one of the newlyweds two signature cocktails: The Old Fashioned and Greyhound. A European & Domestic Cheese Wedge Tray was also enjoyed by hungry guests before being ushered inside for toasts and first dances. Tri-Tip Carvery with Crunchy Onions and Argentinean Chimichurri and Cognac Creamed Horseradish, Pear and Walnut Salad with Pear Vinaigrette, Sausage Stuffed Mushroom, Santorini Chicken, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Almond Rice Pilaf and Fresh Vegetable Medley were plated for dinner. After dinner, Michelle and Jason tossed the bouquet and garter, cut the cake, and then danced with their family and friends for the rest of the evening.
