All glammed up and ready to go, Christine approached Ray on the side patio for their first look. A tap of the shoulder turned the groom around to see his stunning bride for the first time that day. The couple exchanged sweet compliments, posed for a few photos, then headed inside to line up with the rest of their wedding party for ceremony.
Guests entered the side patio, signed the bride and groom’s guest book, then took a seat. Flower petals lined both sides of the aisle and two tall white floral pillars marked the stage. As soon as everyone was in attendance, the live band began their processional song, and the wedding party made their entrances. In front of all their closest friends and family Christine and Ray read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss while everyone cheered from the sidelines.
The newlyweds and their bridesmaids and groomsmen headed to the tarmac for group photos while guests enjoyed cocktail hour. Cadillac Margarita and Hennessey and Coke signature drinks were being served at the bar while hors d’oeuvres were tray passed. The bridesmaids and groomsmen returned to the hangar and Christine and Ray enjoyed their helicopter flight. After plenty of mixing and mingling, guests headed inside for reception.
Black and white décor filled the hangar and flickering candles created a romantic ambiance. Once everyone was seated, the newlyweds made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at the head table with their friends. Dinner was served right when toasts began. Friends and family stood to share their memories of the bride and groom and glasses clink in the air when the last speech ended. After dinner, Ray and Christine cut into their 2-tiered almond wedding cake with chocolate mousse filling, sipped on champagne, and invited their guests to indulge in a slice as well. Full from dinner and dessert, everyone headed to the dance floor. One big group picture was taken, then the rest of the evening was spent dancing with the bride and groom.
