Celebratory Courtyard Rose Center Wedding

Cosmo and his groomsmen posed for the camera outside of the Rose Center while Sherry and her bridesmaids accessorized in the Bridal Suite. When both groups were ready, the bride and groom met upstairs for their first look while the wedding party watched from below. A tap of the shoulder turned Cosmo around to see his beautiful wife standing before him in a lace and tulle gown. The two exchanged sweet compliments, then went downstairs to join their friends for group pictures. The bridesmaids were dressed in salmon-colored dresses and the groomsmen wore black. Together the group smiled and made lasting memories for years to come, then lined up for the ceremony.

Guests entered the courtyard, signed the bride and groom’s guest book, then took a seat. A golden, circular arch stood tall centerstage and was decorated in white and pink flowers. Once everyone was in attendance, the music cued up and the wedding party made their walks down the aisle. In front of all their family and friends, Sherry and Cosmo recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss as everyone cheered.

Thai Lemongrass Meatballs and Thai Vegetable Spring Rolls were tray passed around the courtyard and a stationary Cheese Tray and Bao Bar with Roasted Pork Belly and Thai Three Flavored BBQ Chicken were also available for guests’ enjoyment. The bar was serving wine, beer, and the newlywed’s signature cocktails, a Moscow Mule and Paloma, and the bride and groom were the first to have a drink in hand. Guests mixed and mingled amongst each other and with Cosmo and Sherry, then it was time to head inside for dinner.

Tables were topped with flickering candles and floral arrangements, and guests found their assigned seats. The newlyweds made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at their sweetheart table. Sweet and Sticky Korean Chicken, Vietnamese Lemongrass Pork, Pineapple Fried Rice, Spicy Szechuan Green Beans, and Chow Mein was served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Sierra. While everyone enjoyed dinner, family and friends stood to share toasts. Laughs were shared and glasses were raised after each speech ended. Afterwards, the bride and groom invited everyone to indulge in our Classic Dessert Station with an assortment of Raspberry Chocolate Decadence Cakes, Fresh Fruit Tarts, Vanilla Bean Chocolate Eclairs, Mango and Passion Fruit Macarons, and French Apple Tarts. The sweet treats energized the crowd and soon enough, everyone was out on the dance floor. The evening ended with guests showing off their best dance moves and posing at the photo booth for take home keepsakes.
