It was a crisp fall day, on Saturday, October 22 2016, and the perfect day for Stephanie Pokol and Mitchell Naden's wedding. Close friends and family gathered around the couple to witness them exchange vows to one another and become husband and wife.
Stephanie and Mitchell chose to have their reception in the Crystal Room at Butler Days Inn. As guests began to walk into the Crystal Room, they were in awe of how beautiful the Crystal Room looked. The Crystal Room glowed with light blue up lighting. The tables had smooth white table cloths and tiffany blue overlays, and the chairs had white covers with a tiffany blue satin sash, to compliment the overlays. In the center of the table, sat a gorgeous centerpiece of a white rose trio, provided by The Bloomery.
While anxiously awaiting the arrival of the newlyweds, guest enjoyed the cocktail hour with appetizers and delicious home made cookies.
The Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell Naden, along with their bridal party, were announced into the Crystal room at 5:45. Shortly after it was time for the couple's first dance as husband and wife.
Following the dance, the couple cut their beautiful wedding cake. It was an elegant 3 tiered Bethany Cake, with alternating flavors of vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and almond cake with raspberry preserves. Dazzling rhinestone ribbon wrapped around each tier. This delicious cake was from Cakes by Natashia.
Once Stephanie and Mitchell cut into their cake, there was a unity candle ceremony. The mother's of the Bride and Groom, as well as the Bride and Groom, each lit one of three candles, which symbolized brining the families together. The Mother's of the Bride and Groom, came up to the table where the candles sat, and lit the first two candles.
The couple then joined their mother's, and lit the last candle.
