This wedding reception was a bit different for us, and we loved it! John and Lauren eloped a few months ago, so the reception was for celebrating locally with their family and friends. Their colors were navy and sage, so the tables had navy runners with floral centerpieces of cream flowers and greenery. The cocktail tables each had 3 vases with candles and dried flowers. First, the reception started with cocktail hour. Lauren (in her beautiful wedding dress) and John were there, greeting their guests. For a unique guest book, the guests signed a blue globe with gold marker.
After the couple thanked guests for attending and had their first dance, it was fun until the end. When it was party time, we turned on our blue uplights to give the room a beautiful blue glow. This couple skipped all the traditional reception elements but that didn’t stop everyone from having a good time. Instead of a wedding cake, they had a dessert table featuring banana pudding, cheesecake, chocolate dipped strawberries and more. The guests loved that! When the night came to a close after the last dance, the newlyweds headed out to continue celebrating at an after party. Congratulations John and Lauren!
