This Reception brought us to a venue where we’ve never played: the Lake Jackson Civic Center. Some people think civic centers aren’t pretty, but this room had chandeliers on dimmers, carpet, and two glass walls, one looking out over a pretty landscaped area with columns and fountains. It’s very nice! The tables had white cloths with blue napkins, and the centerpieces alternated between tall vases of coral flowers or three low vases of submerged coral flowers with floating candles. All were surrounded by votive candles.
After the Entrance and First Dance, we moved onto dinner. That was followed by the Toasts and Cake Cutting. Emily’s cake had three stacked ivory tiers with natural style frosting lines. It was accented with coral flowers and topped with two white birds, with the words “Mr.” and “Mrs.” on them. Daniel’s ‘cake’ consisted of mini pies, which everyone loved! Following the Cake Cutting, the dance floor was open.
After a night of fun and the Last Dance, the Newlyweds made their exit under a shower of birdseed and drove off to their new life together. Congratulations Daniel and Emily and enjoy your Hill Country Honeymoon!
