Maggie + Derek, The Estate on Second

It was a beautiful day on Saturday, September 3 when Maggie Francisco and Derek Augarten said “I do!” at The Estate on Second!

This amazing couple opted for a morning ceremony which meant Maggie and her bridesmaids were up and getting ready at 4:50am! Fortunately for them, Heather and Caitlyn of Dolled Up OC were there to make sure they looked their best! (Of course, the guys wouldn’t start getting ready for several hours!)

The main event, overseen by Table7 Events, boasted a spectacular color palette featuring shades of ivory and cream with sage and blush, which complimented the look of the The Estate perfectly. Lavender's Flowers made sure that the ceremony and the reception were tastefully decorated with a lush selection of greenery and flowers. And with beautiful furniture provided by Sundrop Vintage, the stage was set for a perfectly memorable event.

After a beautiful ceremony, local band Dallas & Doll set the mood for the reception as the wedding party made their Grand Entrance. As the wedding took place a little earlier, the happy couple worked with our own Event Specialist Hannah Stuber to provide a tasty brunch for their guests to enjoy! For hors d’oeuvres, an assortment of muffins, scones and season fresh fruit was served. The brunch buffet provided a variety of options including two salads: a Pear Salad (with romaine and wild field greens as well as pears, dried cranberries, walnuts and stilton cheese served with a pear vinaigrette), and a Caesar Salad (with romaine lettuce tossed in our homemade creamy caesar dressing with herbed croutons and shredded parmesan cheese).

In addition, we brought our famous Martini Mashed Potato bar where guests were invited to choose their favorite toppings including gorgonzola crumbles, fresh bacon crumbles, shredded jack and cheddar cheeses and green onions. Not only that but guests had classic brunch options available such as a Trip Tip Carvery, Blueberry French Toast Casserole, Egg Scrambles, Homestyle Potatoes, Bacon and Italian Brunch Bread. All the while, the Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar was open for business!

After some eating and socializing, Maggie and Derek cut their cake as the band played “Sugar Pie Honey Bunch” by the Four Tops. Jay’s provided a lovely two-tiered lemon cake with lemon créme filling an French buttercream icing.
