Congratulations James and Mary

Despite the pandemic, this wedding reception had just the right amount of guests to celebrate.  The room was decorated perfectly to match the burgundy wedding color.  The tables had floor-length ivory linens topped with gold chargers and burgundy napkins.  The centerpieces consisted of potted bonsai trees and small gold vases of roses.  Candles surrounded the centerpieces and gave the room a warm glow. 

Guests received unique favors: small bonsai trees.  I loved that!  The wedding cake was pretty in its simplicity.  It had three ivory, stacked tiers all frosted with natural lines.  Burgundy and ivory flowers accented the cake and made up the topper.  In lieu of the bouquet toss, Mary had five small bouquets that she gave to her nieces.  To get the dancing started, we had an Anniversary Dance.  The longest married couple had been married 53 years and they gave words of advice to Mary and James. 

When the night came to a close, guests showered the newlyweds with rose petals.  The couple then drove off to their new life together.  Congratulations James and Mary!
