Jane and her bridesmaids in pink posed for group photos in the open-air loft while William and his groomsmen suited up in the Sidecar Suite at Forme. First things first, Jane had her first look of the day with her dad upstairs. Full of emotion, Jane exchanged loving words with her dad and the two shared a hug before Jane headed downstairs for her first look with William. With her lace dress trailing behind her, Jane walked over to Forme’s sliding glass doors where William was waiting for her. With a tap of the shoulder, he turned around and saw his beautiful bride standing before him. Cheerful smiles and laughter filled the air as the bride and groom soaked in every moment together. The bride and groom were soon joined by their bridesmaids and groomsmen to line up for ceremony.
Guests arrived in courtyard, signed William and Jane’s guestbook, then took a seat inside. A large circular arbor decorated in pastel roses and greenery stood in front of the geometric wall as the ceremony backdrop and flower petals were sprinkled down the aisle. Soon after everyone took a seat, the wedding party made their entrances. Jane was last to walk down the aisle and took her place next to William. In front of family and friends the bride and groom recited vows, broke bread, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss. Everyone stood and cheered as Jane and William exited into cocktail hour.
Filet & Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and Crab Cakes were tray passed while the bar served up the bride and groom’s signature cocktails, a Hawaiian Mule and Old Fashioned. Jane and William took pictures with their family and bridal party while everyone else mixed and mingled until it was dinner time. A seating chart guided guests outside and to their seats.
Tables were draped in white linen and topped with gold vases filled with peach and white flowers. The ceremony backdrop was placed behind the bride and groom’s sweetheart table outside, and a 3-tier wedding cake was placed on top of the neighboring table. As soon as everyone took their seats, William and Jane made their grand entrance into their first dance. Once their dance ended, they took a seat at the sweetheart table and got situated for dinner. Their parents said a few words and blessed the food they were about to eat, then dinner was served. The first course was Caesar Salad, followed by the entree course of Grilled Mahi Mahi or Classic Filet of Beef with Gourmet Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Broccolini. While everyone ate, friends made toasts and raised glasses to the bride and groom. After dinner, games were played, the bouquet and garter were tossed, and the red velvet cake was cut. The party continued out on the dance floor where guests surrounded the newlyweds and showed off their best dance moves. Before anyone left, they made sure to grab a photo at the photo booth with Jane and William.
