Wedding Recap: Our Cocktail Hour

After we took pictures, we hung out for an hour in one of our two Bridal Suites at the venue. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures from that hour, but we had a great time with our bridal party getting served drinks and food before we had to head into our "real" cocktail hour with all the masses. When we arrived, it was exactly what I thought it would be: Overwhelming trying to see and greet as many people as possible  but still a lot of fun!

Of course, there was amazing food:

There was a pianist on the stage in the front middle of the room. But, the biggest focal point of the room was the large seafood boat in the middle of the space.

This boat had an amazing selection of seafood:

We had an outdoor area as well, which was partly covered (which was good because we had a brief shower right as our cocktail hour started). The outdoor bar had a waterfall behind it, and stairs leading down to the garden. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of those elements, so I've added some from their website below:

But there was one more element of our cocktail hour that I was most excited out, and I can't wait to tell you about it tomorrow...our Martini Bar!
