The Ceremony and Reception had a travel theme and it was one of the best we’ve ever seen. It tied in perfectly with the colors of deep purple/eggplant and green. After the Ceremony at one venue, we all moved over to the Reception at another. The guests were greeted with purple and green Chinese lanterns hanging from the ceiling and amazing hand-crafted paper flowers adorning the accent wall above the dance floor.
The tables had ivory cloths with purple napkins and different centerpieces on each. The centerpieces included globes, tall ‘hot air balloons’, postcards, books, candles, lanterns, touches of lace, and purple and green flowers. For favors, each guest had a small custom made ‘suitcase’ of candy at their place setting. There was also a vintage looking box holding postcards, so guests could write words of well wishes to Matt and Jennifer. That box matched the one on the gift table that held the gift cards. To tie it all together, we had purple uplights accenting the main wall of the room.
Jennifer’s cake matched the theme of the day as well, as it had three stacked white tiers with different white accents on each. Each layer had a few purple flowers with greenery. The awesome cake topper featured a Bride and Groom each holding a handgun, perfect because Matt is a police officer. Matt’s cake represented his favorite team: Notre Dame. The round cake was a stadium with green grass in the middle surrounded by fans in the stands.
This group was fun, having a blast on the dance floor to the music and dance floor lights or hanging out on the balcony watching the people on the street down below. For the Garter toss, Matt made it unique when he put the garter around a football and tossed it to the guys. Too funny! When the night came to a close, the Newlyweds ran though a line of sparklers and headed off to catch a flight to the Dominican Republic. Congratulations Matt and Jennifer and enjoy your honeymoon!
