Upstairs in Forme’s open-air loft, Christin and her bridesmaids posed in front of the camera for group photos before the wedding festivities began. Each bridesmaid wore either a mustard, peach or red orange dress with embroidered detailing and Christin stunned in a silky, champagne colored wedding dress with a fringe train. Bouquets of dried palm, toffee roses, eucalyptus and more were in hand adding to the boho vibe. Meanwhile, the guys were downstairs pumping up CJ for his first look with Christin. Navy suits and ties were worn by the groom and groomsmen and sprigs of dried flowers and a rose were pinned to their lapels as boutonnieres. With plenty of encouraging words and cheers, Christin and CJ left their parties to meet in the courtyard for their first look. A tap on the shoulder turned CJ around to see his beautiful wife standing before him. The two shared a warm embrace and personal, handwritten vows before lining up for their ceremony.
Guests arrived and took a seat in Forme’s courtyard facing a breathtaking backdrop of both dried and fresh flowers. Sage, mustard, rust, and blush arrangements formed an almost arch-like shape that would soon perfectly frame in the bride and groom. Before long, music cued up and the wedding party made their way down the aisle. In front of their closest friends and family, Christin and CJ recited traditional vows, exchanged rings, and were pronounced husband and wife. An uproar of cheers began when the two shared a sweet kiss concluding their ceremony.
The courtyard flipped for cocktail hour and everyone enjoyed Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons, Lemon Parmesan Artichoke Hearts, a European & Domestic Cheese Wedge Tray, and drinks from the bar before heading inside for dinner. The newlyweds made their grand entrance and went straight into their first dance as husband and wife. After, CJ and Christin took a seat at their sweetheart table that had their last name in neon lights as the backdrop. The first course of Pear & Walnut Salad was served while toasts were being made. Laughs and tears were shared all around the room, then dinner was served. Chicken Florentine, Stuffed Portobello Mushroom, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Roasted Broccolini and Oven Roasted Rainbow Fingerling Potatoes filled guest’s plates. The menu was created by the bride and groom with help from our Venue and Catering Sales Manager, Rachel, and was given 5-stars by attendees. The cake was cut next and our Homemade Donut Station was unveiled alongside our Grand Coffee bar for guests. After filling up on sweets, everyone hit the dance floor and showed off their moves for the remainder of the evening.
