As you can see in these photos, the weather was just magnificent and there wasn't a cloud in the sky for Ted and Lisa on their wedding day at The Lace Factory. The flowers were beginning to bloom in the gardens and there were the most stunning peach-colored roses by the steps that seemed to bloom just for this special occasion! The ceremony was hosted in the garden early in the day when the sun was high in the sky. As guests watched from their seats, the processional began with the sweetest ring bearer, Rilely, the couple's huggable and well-behaved pup. He was decked out in his finest! The ceremony was a beautiful dedication to not only the love that Lisa & Ted shared but to their family unit of four. Even the children gave their vows. It was so heart-warming to see.
As their loved ones made their way inside to cocktail hour Ted & Lisa were able to sneak away to the river for some photos before joining everyone. They were both boaters and shared so many fond memories on the river, it was only natural that this would be where they would get married. They would even be spending the night on their boat later that evening. The entire day was just a beautiful reflection of them.
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour playing Corn Hole as our catering team served some delicious seasonal options to nosh on. Stationary hors d'oeuvres included a baked Brie smothered in a strawberry jam and balsamic drizzzle, vegetable crudite and dips, smoked salmon, domestic and imported cheese, and our famous Morrocan meatballs. Servers also passed hors d'oeuvres- including Tequila lime shrimp, endive with chevre, walnuts, and honey, as well as a basil, and tomato bruschetta.
The early afternoon sunlight filled the room as Ted and Lisa were announced into the reception as husband and wife and their fanfare included a money gun and a gymnast- so you know it was SO good. It was seriously so sweet and the smiles on their faces said it all. Guests took turns passing the microphone to make a toast after Matthew made his. It was truly a day to celebrate this little family! It was evident from the get-go that the room was filled with joy and folks were eager to get on the dance floor together.
A first-course salad of Arugula shaved Parmesan, and a lemon vinaigrette was brought to the guest tables along with baskets of warm Fabled Foods bread. Each table was given herbed oil and sweet butter to share. The plated dinner was served shortly thereafter which was a choice of seared sea scallops, filet mignon with fresh horseradish, and a bourbon-brined Statler chicken.
Dessert included a special family favorite- an ice cream sundae bar - including vanilla and chocolate ice cream with choices of chopped peanut butter cups, chopped Oreos, Strawberries, and hot fudge sauce. Of course, what goes better with cake than ice cream? The wedding cake was a delectable red velvet cake with cream cheese filling and buttercream frosting!
This was an absolutely beautiful day and fun was had by all!
