“We had such a wonderful wedding … it was a perfect celebration.”

When Lauren and Arnulfo stepped onto the Stroudsmoor property for the first time, their journey to the perfect day began. A tour turned into a decision, that decision became a vision, and that vision became a reality. In the days leading up to matrimonial bliss, Lauren and Arnulfo had much to do, but they were up to the task … with a little help from their Stroudsmoor planning team, of course!

Floral & Décor. Seating Arrangements. Dinner & Dessert Menu.

Check, Check, and CHECK!

As the saying goes, hard work pays off.

The results of many months of planning left Lauren and Arnulfo speechless. Truly a family affair, Lauren’s Aunt and Uncle were not only guests, but officiated the wedding and provided many beautiful photographs.

As A Thousand Years by Christina Perry began to play, and the processional flowed toward the Grand Lawn of Lawnhaven, friends and family members awaited the bride. The anticipation grew as their Stroudsmoor Wedding Planner organized the processional. First the bridesmaids, including Esabella Lauren and Arnulfo’s eldest daughter. Then the groomsmen, Best Man and Maid of Honor, followed by the flower girl, Sophia, their youngest daughter. After a brief pause, our beautiful bride, escorted by her father, began the march toward her future husband.

We are gathered here today …

A wedding ceremony always seems to pass in an instant, while at the same time feeling as if the dream will go on for a lifetime. Moments you savor and will remember for many years to come. A lifetime of happiness with your partner begins with those first words from your Officiate and before you can blink, the words “you may kiss” are spoken, and the rest is history.

The time has come to celebrate this happy union!

As it all begins to sink in, Lauren, Arnulfo, family, and friends make their way toward the Lawnhaven Pavilion where they enjoyed cocktails and more than 30 different varieties of Stroudsmoor Hors d’oeuvres, including the couple’s favorites Cajun Beef Skewers, Antipasto Stuffed Artichokes and Buffalo Chicken Crostini.  Next, the reception begins in Lawnhaven proper, a building made to create the outdoor wedding of your dreams without the worries of weather.  Surrounded by walls of glass, the stage is set for dinner and dancing. Guests enjoyed the classic Chicken Francese and NY Strip Steak as their meal, finishing with their choice of Strawberries and Cream or Banana Walnut Wedding Cake. The room is filled with happiness, love and laughter which fuels the celebration for hours.

Mingling, eating, dancing, and drinking are all part of the professionally planned wedding itinerary. From the couple’s first dance to “Love Someone” by Lukas Graham, to the traditions of the Father/Daughter, Groom/Daughters, Bride/Son, and Anniversary dances, each and every moment was perfectly orchestrated to create memories that would last a lifetime.

Thank you so much for all your hard work, the staff was exceptional!!!
It’s a day we will remember for the rest of our lives!”
Mr. and Mrs. Arnulfo and Lauren Rivera
