Jill and Taylor met outside Hangar 21 South for their first look. Matching in white, the couple anxiously awaited the countdown. On three, Taylor turned around to see his stunning bride. The bride and groom shared sweet compliments, then joined their bridesmaids and groomsmen for group pictures. The celebratory bunch was all smiles as the photographer snapped away, and once the happy moments were captured, everyone lined up for ceremony.
Guests entered the side patio, signed Jill and Taylor’s guest book, and took a seat. White flowers decorated the stage and matching arrangements marked the back of the aisle. As soon as everyone had arrived, the music cued up and the wedding party made their entrances. Together in front of all their family and friends, Taylor and Jill read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss. Everyone cheered as the newlyweds made their exit into cocktail hour.
Cocktail tables were draped in black and topped with contrasting white florals. Guests lined up for the bar while Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and Chicken Jalapeno Empanadas were being tray passed. While everyone mixed and mingled, Jill and Taylor took off on their helicopter flight over Orange County and returned just in time for reception.
Inside the hangar, tables were decorated with black accents, candlesticks, and white flowers. The newlyweds made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat. A dinner of Chicken Marsala, Tortellini with Creamy Pesto, Roasted Broccolini, Sliced Tomatoes with Buffalo Mozzarella and Caesar Salad was served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Patti. While guests enjoyed dinner, friends and family shared toasts. Glasses clinked in the air after the last speech ended, then it was time for dessert. Taylor and Jill cut into their personal almond wedding cake with chocolate mousse filling and invited their guests to indulge in our All American Dessert Station with an assortment of S’more Macarons, Gourmet Rice Krispy Treats, Chocolate Ganache Brownies, Strawberry Shortcakes, and Chocolate Chip Cookies. After dessert, a cigar lounge, permanent jewelry station, and dance floor opened. Between all the fun activities and dancing, guests worked up an appetite and were surprised with late night snacks of Grilled Marinated Vegetable Pizza, BBQ Chicken Mini Pizza, Meat Lovers Pizza, and Mini Corn Dogs. The evening ended with everyone out on the dance floor waving light sticks in the air while they showed off their moves.
