We had the pleasure of supporting Sarah and Alex while they planned for the 20 months of their engagement, and it made the day finally arriving even more special.

On the day of their wedding, both Sarah and Alex, along with their close friends and family, got ready for the day at the Sea Crest Hotel. The ladies' hair was done by Alice Cloutier and makeup by Nicole Plasse before Sarah put on her beautiful beaded Maggie Sottero dress. The couple did a first look at the hotel. It was rainy during the day, so they opted for an indoor photo shoot with each other and they even included their dog Esther! A bus from AAT Transport brought the couple and the bridal party and parents over to the Chart Room where they were able to take some more photos and get relaxed before guests arrived.
The moment that Sarah stepped out of the restaurant with a parent on each arm, a gorgeous rainbow popped up behind her. It was a fitting moment for years of planning that led Sarah and Alex to this point and it brought tears to the guests’ eyes.
The ceremony, officiated by a family friend, was so personal to the two of them. It ended with both Sarah & Alex together breaking the glass, in the Jewish tradition, and sharing a kiss as a newly married couple.
There was also a specialty guestbook to sign: it was a bench that guests could write on that is now in Sarah & Alex’s home. The lovely centerpieces were handmade by the groom’s mom and included many twinkle lights and succulents in special jars.
Food for both the cocktail hour and reception was provided by an onsite wood-wired pizza truck, Fire It Up Flatbread. Service (including setup and cleanup) was provided by our favorite team at Caterstaff. Everyone was eager for the party to start so the band, Darrell and the Derelicts, helped us move everyone into the main restaurant space and introduced, for the first time, the Mr. and Mrs. They shared a sweet dance together, their first one, and it was followed by both a father/daughter dance and a mother/son dance.
The staffing company and the pizza truck worked together to set up the buffet which had so many options for guests, and the pizza just kept coming. Sarah and Alex stepped outside to do a non-traditional cake cutting… a pizza cutting! There were three types of dessert pizza: s’mores, sweet strawberry, and apple pie. Yum!
