Orange Grove Inspired Wedding at Grand Gimeno
Mimosas filled glasses inside the Powder Room at Grand Gimeno while Adriana and her bridesmaids each took turns in the hair and makeup chairs to get ready for the big day. Meanwhile, Eric and his groomsmen suited up and cracked open cold beers in the Parlor. Once everyone was ready, the bride and groom met in the Foyer for their first look. On the count of three, Eric turned around to see his beautiful wife standing before him. Hugs, kisses, and sweet compliments were exchanged between the couple, then they were joined by their wedding party for photos around the venue. Together, the group posed and smiled for the camera inside and outside in the Olive Grove. Afterwards, everyone lined up for the ceremony.
Guests arrived in the Olive Grove and found their seats. Yellow and white flowers marked the ceremony space where the bride and groom would soon be standing. Once everyone was in attendance, the music cued up and the wedding party made their entrances down the aisle. In front of all their closest friends and family, Eric and Adriana read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss as the crowd cheered.
Wood-Fired Meat Lovers and Neapolitan Pizzas could be smelt throughout the Olive Grove as they were being cooked and taken out fresh from the oven. The smell was so enticing that of course guests gathered around to watch and enjoy a slice. Roasted Cherry Tomato Soup Shooters and Mini Ahi Tacos were tray passed and the bar was serving up drinks including the newlywed’s signature cocktails, a Classic Margarita, Dirty Martini, and Espresso Martini. Guests mingled, sat around the fire pit, and played games of cornhole until it was time for dinner.
Tables were topped with fresh fruit, yellow flowers, printed menus, and blue details. The newlyweds made their grand entrance and took a seat at the head table for dinner and toasts. The bride and groom thanked everyone for attending and the first course of Roasted Golden Beet Salad was served. Family and friends stood to share their favorite memories of the bride and groom and glasses clinked in the air. The final course of Classic Filet Mignon and Roasted Atlantic Salmon with Gourmet Mashed Potatoes and Haricot Verts was served, and the final speech was shared. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Casey. After dinner, guests were invited inside for the bride and groom’s first dance. A live band serenaded the couple as they danced around the room. When their dance ended, the band picked up the beat and everyone joined in on the dance floor. The evening ended with sweet treats, shared memories, and well wishes.
