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!
