Fall-Inspired Wedding Reception
Friends and family gathered outside and cheered for Morgyn and Hunter as they exited the temple where they just tied the knot. A kiss was shared, then everyone headed to Grand Gimeno to continue the celebration. Upon the bride and groom’s arrival, the two freshened up in the suites, and headed out to the Courtyard where their bridesmaids and groomsmen greeted them with hugs and excitement. The bridesmaids all wore different dresses within the same color palette, and the groomsmen were dressed in white and khaki with light peach ties. The group posed for photos as guests trickled into the Olive Grove where Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and Thai Chicken Spring Rolls were being tray passed. A bar inside was serving up the newlywed’s signature non-alcoholic drinks, a Strawberry Kiwi Spritzer and Lavender Lemonade. After bridal party photos were done, it was Morgyn and Hunter’s turn for romantics. Morgyn sparkled in her sequin dress while Hunter contrasted her in a burgundy suit. Fall florals accented the bouquet and boutonniere as the two paraded around the venue as husband and wife, then joined the rest of their guests for reception.
The smell of wood-fired pizzas filled the air as guests found their seats. Wooden tables, caramel velvet draped tables, and black and rattan tables filled the Olive Grove. Each table was topped with beautifully arranged flowers in terracotta pots, brown chargers and plates topped with floral napkins, black and gold flatware, gold goblets, smoke coupes, tea candles, candlesticks, gauze runners, and stone fruits. Orange, gold, green, burgundy, and soft pink painted the reception space as a fall-inspired masterpiece. Two lounges provided additional areas for guests to kick back and relax. One was in front of the buffet, and the other, near the fireplace. Once everyone was seated, Hunter and Morgyn thanked their guests for celebrating their love and invited everyone to enjoy dinner. A custom menu selected by the bride and groom with help from our Event Specialist, Arielle, was served. Wood-Fired Neapolitan and BBQ Chicken Flatbreads, Tri Tip Carvery, Pear and Walnut Salad, and Caesar Salad filled everyone’s plates. While guests finished dinner, the newlyweds shared their first dance and parent dances. Afterward, the bride and groom cut into their beautiful wedding cake and unveiled the dessert bar. Filled with love and sweets, Morgyn and Hunter hit the dance floor along with their friends and family to end the evening. A fitting sparkling sendoff concluded the night.
