This delayed reception was for the sweetest couple who have known each other since they were kids! The newlyweds actually got married a few months ago but chose to have their reception later. Their colors were wine and gold, and the ballroom was very elegant. The tables had floor-length ivory linens and wine pin tuck overlays. The gold chargers were topped by blush napkins in gold napkin rings. The centerpieces alternated between tall vases with ivory and blush flowers, and low lanterns with candles.
Since this reception was on Good Friday, the families arranged to have communion for those who wished to participate. That was something we’ve never seen at a reception, and it was really nice. Sveta’s red velvet cake was so pretty: it had four, stacked, white tiers accented with greenery. Chris’ groom’s ‘cake’ was actually a tower of mini pies in assorted flavors. That’s so fun!
After a great evening of friends and family, the night came to a close with the last dance. Instead of a traditional exit, the newlyweds stay until the end to say farewell to their guests. Congratulations Chris and Sveta!
