Following the ceremony, guests went inside for the reception. In lieu of a guest book, these guests signed Jenga tiles for the couple to later play with. To match the wedding colors, the tables had white floor-length cloths topped with centerpieces of white roses and eucalyptus. The place settings had gold chargers with mauve napkins and each place had a gold box of candy as a gift to the guest. The three-tiered, 'naked' Italian crème wedding cake had simple décor consisting of a few white roses. To match the wedding colors, the cake was on a gold stand. To allow us to dim the lights and create a party atmosphere, we had white uplights around the room with pale pink on the stage.
We played a real variety of music for this wedding. From Pop to Country to Hip Hop to 90s and everything else, they liked it all. There was lots of dancing, singing, and just plain being goofy. This is one of those unusual weddings were the groomsmen out-danced the bridesmaids. They were on the floor all night long! At one point, they asked for Country Roads by John Denver. Sure enough, they were on the dance floor singing and dancing along.
When the night came to an end, the newlyweds shared a last dance before running through bubbles, climbing in a limo and heading off to their new life. Congratulations Robert and Karla!
