Ben and the boys suited up and headed outside Hangar 21 South to meet Jackie and the bridesmaids for the big first look reveal. The groomsmen and Ben wore black suits with satin lapels, black bowties and white button up shirts while the bridesmaids dressed in different blush toned maxi dresses. The beautiful bride wore a delicate lace bodice wedding gown with trailing tulle skirt and veil. With their loved ones watching, Jackie tapped Ben’s shoulder and he turned around in excitement grinning ear to ear as he gazed upon his future wife. Group photos were taken, then the wedding party lined up for their ceremony entrance.
Guests arrived in the courtyard at Hangar 21 South and found their seats. A tall floral structure was placed center stage as the ceremony backdrop for Jackie and Ben and a small choir of three struck a chord as soon as the mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom walked out cuing the start of the wedding ceremony. Ben found his place perfectly framed in by the greenery and roses that made up the backdrop and awaited his bride. Jackie walked down the aisle arm-in-arm with her father and sweet emotions filled her eyes when he gave her to Ben. The bride and groom exchanged vows and sealed the deal with a kiss as they were announced husband and wife. Afterward, while Ben and Jackie were on their helicopter flight over Orange County, guests took to the tarmac for cocktail hour. Tray passed hors d’oeuvres were enjoyed and refreshments were available before guests headed into the hangar for dinner. Tables were set with white linens and small glass vases that held light pink and white roses. Ben and Jackie were cheered on as they made their grand entrance which then led into their first dance as husband and wife. The remainder of the evening was filled with joyful toasts, delicious dinner, cake cutting and dancing that got everyone out of their seat.
