Summer Wedding

February 14, 2022

After a few touchups inside the Sunburst Suite at Forme, Angela headed downstairs for her first look with Ian. Ian anxiously awaited his bride on the side of the building dressed in a black suit and pink tie. He could hear footsteps approaching from behind, and with a tap of the shoulder, he turned around to see Angela. As soon as their eyes met, smiles filled their faces and loving words were exchanged. The bride and groom posed together for photos then met the rest of their wedding party for group pictures. Each bridesmaid wore a pink dress and held a bouquet of white and peach roses, and the groomsmen wore black with white rose boutonnieres. As soon as guests began to arrive, Angela and Ian’s wedding party lined up for the ceremony.

Guests snapped a selfie and signed the bride and groom’s guest book in the courtyard then took a seat. A circular arbor decorated in boho florals stood tall as the ceremony backdrop and white petals were scattered down the aisle. As soon as everyone was seated, live music began playing and the wedding party made their walks down the aisle ending with the bride, Angela. In front of family and friends, the bride and groom read handwritten vows, exchanged rings, and were pronounced husband and wife. The crowd cheered as the newlyweds kissed to seal the deal, then everyone headed into cocktail hour.

The bar was shaking up Hawaiian Mules and Sex on the Beach signature cocktails while Roasted Red Cherry Tomato Bruschetta and Gloria’s Caramelized Bacon Wrapped Franks were being tray passed. Guests mixed and mingled while Angela and Ian made their rounds thanking guests for coming to celebrate. Polaroid cameras were brought out to commemorate the moments in real time before everyone headed inside for dinner.

Inside, the ceremony backdrop was repurposed as sweetheart table decor and tables were topped with fresh florals and gold details. The bride and groom made their grand entrance into their first dance with guests cheering them on the entire way. Tables were excused one by one to fill their plates with Chicken Parmigiana, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Red Roasted Garlic Potatoes, Grilled Marinated Vegetables, and Caesar Salad. During dinner service, friends and family made toasts to the bride and groom and guests clinked glasses as each came to an end. As soon as Angela and Ian finished dinner, they cut their white wedding cake with raspberry creme filling and invited their guests to indulge in some dessert. Cake slices were passed out to those with a sweet tooth and the rest of the guests hit the dance floor. Before leaving, everyone made sure to snap a picture with the bride and groom in the photo booth to take as a keepsake.
