Jessica & Jason had the Flip Sydz as their cocktail hour entertainment and the guys strolled through the space delighting guests with their 4 part harmonies while covering some of the classic favorites such as Brown Eyed Girl!  The gaming tables were organized by Jay Yeager at Fine Affairs and each guest was given funny money with prizes going to the highest rollers at the end of cocktail hour. Jessica, Jason & their guests enjoyed an array of butler passed items which included jumbo shrimp passed in large martini glasses, sushi, seared tuna on Asian spoons, mini guacamole martini glasses with fresh pitas, 3 varieties of oyster shooters, cocktail Caesar salad in a parmigiano cup, and more!

There was also a martini greeting station that included two of their favorite cocktails, a cable car martini and a dirty martini appropriately renamed “The Bellagio” and “The Hard Rock” respectively!  “The Flamingo” (a grapefruit martini) and “The Sands” (a margarita martini) were also available at the bar.

The sit down dinner was a true steakhouse experience for Jessica and Jason’s guests.  Each guest enjoyed a scrumptious filet and fresh-out-of-the-oven crusty bread with oil and sea salt for dipping.  Family style sides of onion rings, steamed asparagus, mushrooms, sauteed spinach and truffled macaroni and cheese were served to each table along with a trio of sauces that included bearnaise, creamy horseradish, and our signature 677 steak sauce.

Mike Emery along with the New York Players kept the crowd dancing all night!  Debbie Coye from Saratoga created the gorgeous fondant wedding cake and Regina Chaskin provided the amazing humidor groom’s cake!  Guests also enjoyed a candy station with all of the old favorites.  Mini Chinese take out boxes were given to guests to fill up with candy and take as a favor.  Jess and Jason provided stickers with their caricature for each box for a personal touch!
