Marlene and Robert tied the knot at the Rose Center in Westminster. The two met just outside the main ballroom to exchange love notes and share their first look. Marlene was dressed in a beautiful, white lace wedding gown while Robert wore a maroon tux with black detailing. They each read their notes back to back and turned each other once they were done for the big reveal. With the sweetest smiles spread across their faces and love in their eyes, they hugged and shared a kiss before their ceremony began.
Just outside in the courtyard, golden Chiavari chairs were organized in rows in front of the ceremony stage which was decorated in a golden arbor, golden lanterns and white and pink roses. Guests arrived and took their seats just before Robert made his way to the head of the aisle awaiting his beautiful bride. Marlene walked out and was holding back overwhelming emotion as she walked towards her future husband. Vows were read and “I dos” were said before everyone was invited to cocktail hour where Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms and Ellie’s Parmesan Meatballs were tray passed. The bar opened and was shaking up the newlywed’s signature cocktails: A Hawaiian Mule and Melon Margarita. Guests sipped, snacked and mingled before finding their seats inside for toasts and dinner. Grilled Marinated Vegetables, Sliced Tomato with Buffalo Mozzarella, Caesar Salad, Chicken Rigatoni and Chicken Parmigiana were served before the garter and bouquet toss that led into dancing. Marlene and Robert cut their delicious white cake with strawberry crème filling and French buttercream icing and the Kouign Amann and Cookies and Milk Shots stations opened for guests to indulge in the rest of the evening while working up an appetite on the dance floor.
