Excitement filled the air, on Saturday, October 15, 2016, at 2:30 p.m., in the Ford City area as Megan Matthews and Matthew Walter, stood in front of their close friends and family to exchange vows to one another and become husband and wife. As the Ceremony ended and the two became one, the guests headed to Butler to the Crystal Room for the reception.
The doors to the Crystal Room opened at 5:00 pm. The Crystal room glowed under soft red lighting. The tables were covered with black linens and crisp ivory overlays, while the chairs had black chair covers with an ivory satin sash, which tied into a bow around the back. In the center of each table, there was a beautiful burgundy rose trio centerpiece, along with diamond studded picture frames, which held the table number. The centerpieces were provided by the Bloomery and the picture frames were made by Megan.
Guests were mingling and enjoying the open bar and the appetizers, Megan and Matthew chosea cheese ball display, and the Crystal Room staff butler passed Jumbo shrimp cocktails, chicken kabobs, crab stuffed mushroom caps, cocktail meatballs, and bacon wrapped water chestnuts.
At 5:50, trumpets began to play and a red carpet was rolled out, as the bridal party was announced in. As the Bride and Groom made their way into the Crystal Room, everyone once again had the chance to admire Megan's stunning dress. Megan wore a beautiful and elegant white dress, which had a very intricate and dazzling design on the top half, that also carried over onto the three quater length sleeves. Once everyone had been announced in, a Unity service took place. The Bride and Groom, along with their parents, each lit one of the three candles, which symbolized bringing the families together.
Following the unity service, it was time for the couple's first dance as husband and wife.
At 6:15, it was time for dinner to begin. The Crystal Room staff served each guest a mixed green garden salad, followed by a duo plate of filet mignon and chicken marsala. To go along with the entrees, the couple chose green bean almandine and garlic smashed red skin potatoes.
The Crystal Room staff served each guest a piece of Megan and Matthew's gorgeous wedding cake for dessert. The cake was an elegant 4 tiered vanilla cake, with strawberry mousse filling. The wedding cake was provided by Cakes by Natashia.
Thanks to all the loving family and friends, there was alsoplenty of home made cookies at the cookie table for everyone to enjoy!
After dessert, DJ Pifemaster got the party started. All of the guests were given boa's to make the dancing more fun! DJ Pifemaster kept the dance floor crowded and feathers flying all night!
