Angie and Paolo met inside Hangar 21 for their first look surrounded by family. Upon seeing each other for the first time that day, the bride and groom were filled with joy and grinning from ear to ear. Compliments, hugs and kisses were shared between the two before heading to the tarmac just outside. Angie wore a beautiful lace dress with a dramatic train and Paolo wore a classic black tux, white dress shirt and black tie. White, purple, and rust flowers were bundled together to make Angie’s bouquet and carried into Paolo’s boutonniere.The wedding party lined up and awaited the start of the ceremony.
On the side patio, guests were entering and finding their seats. A triangular, wooden ceremony backdrop stood tall center stage and was decorated in pampas grass, roses and greenery. Before long, music cued up and the wedding party, including some very special dogs, made their way down the aisle ending with the gorgeous bride, Angie. Paolo and Angie shared handwritten vows and exchanged rings before sealing the deal with a kiss. The newlyweds cheered all the way down the aisle, out of the ceremony and into cocktail hour.
Crab Cakes and Fig, Goat Cheese and Mascarpone Tarts were tray passed for guests to snack on as they sipped on drinks from the bar. Meanwhile, Angie and Paolo made their way over for their helicopter ride. While guests mixed and mingled, the newlyweds were off on a flight over Orange County during golden hour. Upon touchdown, reception tables were set with black linens, floral arrangements and candles and the bride and groom made their grand entrance back to Hangar 21 and into their first dance. After the bride and groom’s first dance, everyone found their assigned seats and enjoyed a lovely dinner selected by Angie, Paolo and our talented Event Specialist, Patti. Santorini Chicken, Tortellini with Creamy Pesto, Red Roasted Garlic Potatoes, Fresh Vegetable Medley, Apple Walnut Salad and fresh baked dinner rolls filled guests plates. Toasts were made as everyone finished their dinner. Angie and Paolo danced with their parents, then more family and friends found their way to the dance floor. Our Gourmet Dessert Station was unveiled and a collection of Mini Lemon Curd Tarts, Mango Passionfruit French Macarons, Raspberry Chocolate Decadence, Mini Carrot Cupcakes, and Caramel Cream with Lemon Curd and Praline Crisp Dessert Shots were devoured before everyone sent off the bride and groom and headed home.
