Real Wedding: Sarah and David's Reception

Oh how I have loved reliving this weeding this week! Sarah and David's portraits and first look are so genuine and sweet and their ceremony makes me a little teary every time I remember sending her around the corner and down the aisle! Aaron Clark did such an amazing job capturing each moment.

And now here we are, at the grand finale! The reception for the Love's is still one that we talk about often! We hung over 100 glass orbs with candles and yards and yards and yards of sheer drape panels from the ceiling of Rogers and Baldwin. The soft and romantic ambiance was not to be missed. Be sure to linger on their detail photos and get a really good look at that gorgeous cake!

Cocktail hour took place on the lower level while we flipped the ceremony space into the reception. Guests mingled around tables of blush linens with white flowers and were able to scope out the seating assignments beforehand.

Once back upstairs the room was completely transformed for guests to have a fabulous meal catered by Simply Delicious Catering.

What’s the one d├ęcor aspect that you most loved and will remember? 

The sheer draperies that were hanging throughout the entire third floor were so beautiful. They were wispy and flowed from the ceiling to the floor. Crystal orbs were suspended from the ceiling and looked like floating, twinkling stars. The room had a romantic ambience that is usually only captured in dreams. Abby and her staff did an amazing job in decorating the venue. In fact, Abby made my dream wedding come true.

What was your most favorite photo location, and why did you choose it?
Our favorite photo location was the third floor patio area at R&B. We stepped out on the patio during the reception. The sun was setting and it was our first photo as husband and wife.

What was your first dance song, and why?
“Give It All We Got Tonight” by George Strait. We both love country music and the lyrics to this song really spoke to us. The words were perfect for our first dance because the song mentions “there’s no one else but us” and to “give it all we got tonight” and in that moment as we were dancing for the first time as husband and wife, and looked into each other’s eyes, it felt like no one else was around. We were completely in the moment and it felt perfect. It is such a beautiful song about love – love is everything.

How did you portray your personal styles into your wedding day?
Our first choice was not having a groom’s cake. David loves his Granny’s pies and he wanted to honor her by having pies at the reception. We wanted the atmosphere to be light and fun with a vintage feel and a hint of glam. I had always wanted light colors in my wedding – pink, peach, white, and cream but I wasn’t sure how to create the glam effect I wanted. Abby understood my vision and suggested the color gold. To ensure we didn’t overwhelm the light color palette I loved, we chose to use a few key items to highlight the gold like Chivari chairs, plate chargers, and a select number of glitter-dipped glass votive candleholders. It was beautiful and perfect.

I hope you enjoyed getting a glimpse into the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Love this week! Their wedding was also featured in Metropolitan Bride magazine and is on shelves now! Be sure to grab a copy!
