We are wrapping up this series with a couple more “Best of 2016” posts, but today is “Reception Details” day!! Despite the fact that all of my 32 weddings last year had different themes, it’s fun seeing these photos together. 🙂 So many unique and beautiful ideas thanks to hard work from the couples and vendors involved! Speaking of which, be sure to click on the image to take you to the blog post where you can find the talented vendors!!
There is a lot of attention to detail discussed months prior, from the color scheme to appropriate in-season flowers to table scape layouts to the big question of WHERE is the wedding happening and much more. It’s a big deal to plan a party to this scale! Enjoy looking through some of my favorite details from last year!!!
Pretty garden themed wedding with a lot of moss, lace and flowers! Love the little chandelier detail!
Elias and Anna harvested honey from their bees! Cool!
Elegant mixed with rustic! Lights strung across the room, overhead, creates a magical atmosphere! Reminds me of the California weddings they are able to host outside!
Calligraphy signage add a delicate touch!
Speaking of delicate, I love the touch of the flowers on this cake! The purple and green color scheme was a great choice for a summer wedding!
