This New Year’s Eve wedding reception was perfect for this fun-loving bride and groom. You know they wanted to have a great time when they made their entrance into the ballroom as guests showered them with flower petals. Opting to keep the venue neutral, the tables had ivory floor-length linens topped by centerpieces of candles in tall glass vases. Stephanie’s four tiered, stacked cake was gorgeous, as it had hand-made gumpaste ombre flowers. The flowers started white on the top tier and gradually turned into a dark red on the bottom. Monte’s cake, obviously a nod to his love of fishing, had a fish jumping out of it. It was cool!
This group enjoyed dancing, especially to Greek music. The guests were often on the dance floor, dancing in circles, waving napkins, and having a blast. Greek music definitely dominated the music for this reception, and it guaranteed a great time. When the night came to a close, we saw something we had never seen before: an indoor pyrotechnic display! The guests gathered around the newlyweds as we counted down to midnight. As soon as midnight hit, the pyrotechnics lit up – awesome! To top off the night, the guests were then served a midnight breakfast food brunch. Who doesn’t love eggs, bacon, sausage, and all that goes with it? When it came to leave, in lieu of a formal exit, this couple opted to stay in the ballroom and say farewell to their guests. Congratulations Monte and Stephanie!

This reception took place one week before Christmas, so the color theme of red and gold was perfect. The table had floor-length ivory linens with red satin toppers and gold chargers. The high-low centerpieces alternated between tall candelabras with white hydrangea and red roses, and low arrangements of the same flowers. The venue was also decorated beautifully for Christmas, with a fully decorated Christmas tree, swags with large red bows, and wreaths.
Cassie’s three-tiered elegant white cake featured swags draping around each tier, and small rosettes and leaves. Ross showed his love for his truck, as his chocolate cake had a picture of his red truck on top. For a special touch that matched the December wedding, the guests were served eggnog and wassail. There were also customized wooden ornaments for all the guests to take home and hang on their Christmas tree.
Cassie was a high school cheerleader, a college cheerleader, and is now teaching high school cheer. So, at one point, all of her college cheer friends came out on the dance floor and did a cheer for SMU while we played their fight song. We then did the same thing for Cassie’s high school cheer friends. They even brought pom poms to make the cheers authentic!
This wedding had a great crowd for dancing, as the dance floor was full for most of the night. When guests took a brief break, they enjoyed the candy buffet with everyone’s favorite types of candy.
As the night came to a close, the guests waved sparklers and pom poms as the Newlyweds made their exit to a limousine. Congratulations Ross and Cassie!

This wedding reception with the colors of navy, gold and ivory was so pretty! The tables had long floor-length ivory damask tablecloths which were topped with gold chargers. The high/low centerpieces were tall gold candelabras with ivory hydrangea and ivory roses, and the low centerpieces were arrangements of the same flowers. To give the reception a candlelight glow, we had amber uplights around the room. It was all so beautiful!
Katie’s three-tiered, stacked white cake matched the elegant feel of the day, with lace designs on each tier. A few ivory roses on the cake added the final touch. Cliff’s two-tiered groom’s cake must have been for his alma mater, Auburn University. The bottom tier had the word “Auburn” on it and the top tier was orange and black tiger stripes.
As a treat for the guests, there was a candy buffet of everyone’s favorite chocolate candies. There were also custom navy and gold Koozies. One thing I really liked at this reception was the card box: it was a real metal mailbox painted ivory with gold accents on it. For a first for us, we did the Mannequin Challenge! That was fun, as most of the guests participated. This group also did an impromptu Conga line as well.
When the night came to a close after the Last Dance, the guests lined up and showered the Newlyweds with rose petals as they made their exit to a limousine. Congratulations Cliff and Katie!
