Real Wedding: Christine & Sid Get Married Outside on a Helicopter Pad

Just a couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of hosting the wedding of Christine and Sid here at the ACE Conference Center.  A sweet couple that met at a mutual friend’s party and fell in love instantly.  (read more about the couple here).

Although traditional in nature, Christine and Sid’s wedding ceremony took place in a rather unusual location.  A helicopter pad!  The ACE Conference Center boasts its own helicopter pad; which, for the most part, gets used more for weddings these days than helicopters.  Why?  Because it just happens to be situated at the top of the most scenic hill here on the property.  Once our brides and grooms see the helipad, they fall in love with the view and gorgeous natural backdrop it provides.  Christine and Sid chose to exchange their vows in the early evening and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect!  A little steamy of course, but the couple had planned for that scenario right down to the iced bottles of water they had us offer their guests to keep them cool.

After the ceremony, while Christine and Sid headed off in a golf cart to take their wedding photographs, their guests were invited to enjoy cocktails in the cool and comfortable Marquis Lounge.  There are countless places for amazing outdoor wedding photos on the property, from the stone bridge to creeks, ponds, ancient trees and flowering walks.  Not to mention the playful photos you can get playing golf or riding in the golf carts!  Once the bride and groom had rejoined the party, everyone was welcomed up to the Ballroom for a celebratory dinner dance reception that included a New Orleans Saints groom’s cake for Sid! (That’s a brave man!)
