Our Wedding - Reception Decor

Hope you all had a fun weekend. I stayed in to recuperate and missed out on all of the Halloween fun but I did manage to get a few treats this weekend. Thanks honey :)

I figure I'll continue on with the recaps today. After the cocktail hour everyone headed upstairs to the penthouse for the reception. Here's a little glimpse at the decor.

We had a mix of high and low centerpieces. The low ones were a tight arrangement of dahlias, hydrangea and celosia.

And the high ones were crabapple branches with hanging votive bulbs. It was extra special for us to be able to incorporate this into our decor because J grew up with a crabapple tree on her front lawn. Many members of her family noticed & commented on the connection.

We named the tables after our favorite vacation spots. Each table had a picture of us in the locale.

Here we are on a glacier in Alaska

And that's not all. The best part of the decor is still to come. Stay tuned to check out the magnificent crowd pleasing views!

Love the escort cards. I ADORE the crabapple centrepieces. How did you come up with that?! They fit so well into the room.

I love love love both centerpieces. I would have never thought to pair lavander hydrangeas with deep burgundy dahlia's... they look phanominal!!!
