Gloria and her bridesmaids got ready in the bridal suite at Hangar 21 South while Chris and his groomsmen patiently waited for Chris and Gloria’s first look. Gloria wore the cutest all white robe with “bride” embroidered on the back and her bridesmaids wore floral robes while getting their hair and makeup done. When they were all ready, Gloria slipped into a stunning wedding dress with lace long sleeves. She had a sparkly hairpiece that totally tied her look together and added a little extra sparkle. She met Chris outside and turned him around for the big reveal. The sweetest moments were shared between the two and they were met by their bridesmaids and groomsmen for more photos before the ceremony.
Guests were taking their seats in the courtyard where a wooden arbor decorated in muted florals and greenery acted as a ceremony backdrop. Each member of the immediate wedding party made their way down the aisle including the cutest puppy and ring bearer before Gloria met Chris on center stage. The two lovebirds exchanged vows in front of friends and family and after saying “I do,” sealed things with a kiss. Everyone cheered as they made their way into cocktail hour where Filet & Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and Fig, Goat cheese & Mascarpone Tarts were being tray passed. The bar also opened serving many options including the newlyweds two signature cocktails: A Mojito and Manhattan Martini. As guests mingled and snacked on light hors d’oeuvres, Chris and Gloria took flight on their helicopter ride before heading into their first dance and wedding reception. Tables were topped with light grey linens and fresh florals. A large greenery installation hung from the ceiling directly above the dancing area in the center of the hangar. Everyone found their seats, watched first dances and toasted to the newlyweds before the dinner buffet opened. Pear & Walnut Salad, Santorini Chicken, Atlantic Salmon Filet, Quinoa & Grilled Vegetable Stuffed Portobello Mushroom, Oven Roasted Rainbow Fingerling Potatoes, and Vegetables Broccolini filled guests’ plates. After dinner, the couple cut their 3-tier marble wedding cake with vanilla Bavarian filling and whipped cream icing. After cake, everyone danced the night away inside the hangar and made unforgettable memories.
