Featured Wedding – Melissa and Kevin 6/7/13

Ah, Melissa and Kevin.  They were such a wonderful couple.  So happy to be getting married, so excited to share the day with their family and friends.  Melissa was worried about the weather.  Sometimes, no matter how much you plan, hope, and prepare for your wedding, the unexpected can happen.  In this case, it was rain.  Lots and lots of rain.  This was the ONLY wedding we had in 2013 that was dealt such a torrential downpour of rain that there was no way, not even with a tent, any part of the day would allow people outside.  At the rehearsal, we reassured Melissa that even if it did rain, she would be so caught up in the joy and celebration, it would hardly be noticed.  And looking back, Melissa agreed.  

Melissa chose a bright, brilliant fuchsia for her bridal party dresses, and with the colorful accents of her decor, the interior of the mansion blossomed with a feeling of spring that equaled the magnificence of its outside lawns.  She even had a delectable candy table with a variety of delicious sweets that tantalized the guests throughout the evening.  With their wonderful personalized details, the day was truly a success from start to finish. 

Melissa got ready upstairs in our Bridal Suite

Congratulations Melissa and Kevin!  It was a joy to be part of your special day!  We wish you all the best.

Featured Wedding: Lora and Alex 6/22/13

Lora and Alex were the very first wedding of our Summer season and what a great way for us to kick off a very hot, very busy season!  Lora loved the mansion so much, she had reserved it before she was even engaged!  We knew, with someone that enthusiastic about mansion, it would be a stunning affair.

It was a beautiful day and Lora put a lot of thought into every elegant detail.  She worked with Sharon Elizabeth flowers to create stunning, romantic bouquets with sparkling details and subtle and lovely centerpieces on each table.  David Alan catering put together a delicious feast for the guests to enjoy and Kim’s Cottage Confections assembled a beautiful cake adorned with buttercream flourishes.  Lora surprised Alex, an avid Star Wars fan, with an R2D2 grooms cake.

When we met Lora a couple weeks prior to her wedding for a details meeting, she was feeling a bit overwhelmed with the planning and logistics of it all.  One service we provide is meeting with the bride and groom to go over all of the details of the day to make sure nothing is forgotten or slips through the cracks.  We like to be sure our bride and grooms are at ease and feel like all is taken care of the day of the wedding. It seems by the time our meeting was over, she was feeling much more confident and when Lora arrived on her wedding day, she was simply stunning, completely at ease and ready to enjoy her wedding day!

Then the celebrations continued with dancing and merriment!

Congratulations to Lora and Alex!  It was truly a joy to see your wedding come to life.  We wish you all the best in the years to come!

Featured Wedding: Jen and Ryan 6/8/13

Jen and Ryan first toured the Mansion during our 2012 Open Air Market (this year scheduled for August 25!) with their sweet Great Dane puppy.  We are a dog-friendly establishment so we were happy to have them, and their pup, take a look around.  Obviously they loved it because the following month were back to book their wedding!  Fast forward about 9 months, the wedding day arrived.  It was a beautiful June day.  The mansion was ripe with a lush green landscape and the sun was shining.  Grand Gourmet prepared a scrumptious feast, Jen’s mother made the cakes (yes, cakes), and Cindy Casuyon created beautiful floral arrangements.  Sometimes our staff likes to jump in and lend a helping hand, and our Event Manager Anne was happy to do that to bring Jen’s vision to life.  It all came out beautifully, don’t you think?

Jen arrived early to get dressed upstairs in our bridal suite
While Ryan was preparing for the big day with his groomsmen at the hotel
The ceremony was held on the patio overlooking the vista
As it is with photography, and photographers, there are times we find ourselves seeing the mansion in a whole different light.  Dan, from Some Guy Photography,and Kevin 11 took some pretty fantastic and unique images with the couple and wedding party out on the vista.

Pictures were followed by the first dance, which took place on the patio.
After dinner, more dancing and merriment to celebrate Jen and Ryan!

And finally, we love this picture of Jen and Ryan dancing in the Loggia.
Congratulations you two!  Thank you for choosing the mansion to host your wedding. It was a pleasure having you here. We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
