We’ve all heard of the stereotypical “Vegas Wedding.” A blitzed couple (or sometimes complete strangers) who on a whim, decide they are meant for each other for the remainder of their lives and tie the knot in a drive-thru chapel in the City of Sin. Britney Spears’ 55-hour marriage; need we say more?
So when we heard that our friends, Trisha and Eric, got hitched last week in Las Vegas, we couldn’t help but groan a little bit. But when we found out they said “I do” after completing the Las Vegas Marathon together, it all made perfect sense. Donning a veil and sweaty running clothes, Trisha made Eric the happiest man around.
But of course, the two didn’t want to leave the rest of us out of the fun! Guests arrived to their reception this past weekend at Pierpont Place wearing cocktail dresses, suits, and running shoes. This bride certainly cared about the comfort of herself and her guests, our favorite type of bride. Mint green and white crème décor turned Pierpont into a beautiful space for the relaxed couple and their friends and family to celebrate the occasion.
The DJ played both classic and popular dance hits throughout the night, and guests worked up quite an appetite hitting the floor and snapping pictures in the photobooth. Enjoyed were two different gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, the first stuffed with asiago, fontina, and Parmesan cheese, and the second with Gouda, cheddar, tomato, and apple wood smoked bacon. To accompany these mouthwatering bites, were organic mixed greens with pomegranate balsamic dressing. But no wedding is complete without the sweets! A spread of red velvet, German chocolate, and key lime cupcakes with cream cheese frosting were savored alongside a delectable carrot cake. To wash down these treats, Pierpont created the ultimate hot chocolate station with all the tasty toppings and Premier provided full bar service.
As the snow quietly fell outside, Trisha and Eric sneaked a few smootches while the guests bundled up for the car ride home. This couple truly is beautiful inside and out and we here at Pierpont Place, congratulate them for the long run.
