Congratulations Ross and Cassie

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!

Congratulations Cliff and Katie

This wedding reception with the colors of navy, gold and ivory was so pretty!  The tables had long floor-length ivory damask tablecloths which were topped with gold chargers.  The high/low centerpieces were tall gold candelabras with ivory hydrangea and ivory roses, and the low centerpieces were arrangements of the same flowers.  To give the reception a candlelight glow, we had amber uplights around the room.  It was all so beautiful!

Katie’s three-tiered, stacked white cake matched the elegant feel of the day, with lace designs on each tier.  A few ivory roses on the cake added the final touch.  Cliff’s two-tiered groom’s cake must have been for his alma mater, Auburn University.  The bottom tier had the word “Auburn” on it and the top tier was orange and black tiger stripes.

As a treat for the guests, there was a candy buffet of everyone’s favorite chocolate candies.  There were also custom navy and gold Koozies.  One thing I really liked at this reception was the card box: it was a real metal mailbox painted ivory with gold accents on it.   For a first for us, we did the Mannequin Challenge!  That was fun, as most of the guests participated.  This group also did an impromptu Conga line as well.

When the night came to a close after the Last Dance, the guests lined up and showered the Newlyweds with rose petals as they made their exit to a limousine.  Congratulations Cliff and Katie!
