What a gorgeous Reception! With the colors of coral, mint and gold, the room was beautiful and perfectly complemented the historic venue. The tables had floor length ivory linens topped with ribbon-embroidered taupe toppers and gold chargers. The tables were surrounded by gold Chiavari chairs. The floral centerpieces alternated between low vases with ivory and coral flowers and tall vases filled with green apples and limes topped with dramatic coral and ivory floral arrangements. To tie in the gold and add a beautiful glow to the ballroom, we had Amber Uplights lining the accent wall.
After dinner, we had the toasts and cake cutting. Melodie’s lemon cake with raspberry filling was made up of three stacked tiers with the natural style of frosting. Coral roses accented each tier and the couple’s monogram in gold made up the topper. Chad’s chocolate cake was in the shape of Texas with a Texas flag draped across the top and the whole thing was surrounded by chocolate covered strawberries. The Father/Daughter dance came next and then the dance floor opened to all.
When not dancing, the guests enjoyed the candy buffet as well as the drinks wrapped in custom cozies. Later we stopped for the Bouquet and Garter and then went back to dancing until the end. The Newlyweds enjoyed the Last Dance before running through a shower of bubbles and driving off in a limousine. Congratulations Chad and Melodie!
