This Wedding Reception was not only fun, but so elegant! The color for the day was periwinkle, and there were metallic accents, especially gold. The tables had floor length tablecloths with periwinkle iridescent overlays and were surrounded by gold Chiavari chairs. The tables were topped with gold chargers and beautiful high/low centerpieces. The centerpieces were either low vases of blue hydrangea and pale pink flowers or tall candelabras with the same flowers. Each centerpiece was also surrounded by more candles. The wedding party matched the colors as well, as the ladies had beautiful long, periwinkle dresses and the guys wore grey tuxes with periwinkle ties.
After the delicious dinner, we moved on to the toasts and cake cutting. Torii’s cake had three white stacked tiers, all with elegant white accents. The cake was topped with blue hydrangea and the couples’ bling initials. Joey, who is a skater, had a red velvet cake decorated to look like a skating rink with little ice skates on top. Then, to get the dance floor open, we started with the Anniversary Dance. The longest married couple in the room had been married 61 years (!) and gave excellent, and sweet, advice to the Newlyweds.
One fun thing we did at this wedding was the Shoelywed Game. That is when the couple sits in chairs back to back while I ask them a series of questions. They then hold up a shoe, either hers or his, to indicate the answer. Torii and Joey matched on most of the questions and the guests got a lot of laughs.
After a night of fun and dancing, the Newlyweds made their exit by running through lines of guests who were waving ribbon wands or blowing bubbles. Congratulations Joey and Torii!
