And now…the long awaited reception! This venue needed some height, so we brought the ceiling down with paper lanterns, and brought the tables up with these great branches adorned with strung orchids finished off with beads and jewels. Also, since it is an older venue maintaining the historic feel with the exposed bricks and wood floors and ceilings, we wanted to lighten the venue up a little and keep with the colors so we used pink and orange linens for tables, use chair sashes to break up the white chairs and the menu cards were folded in the opposite color napkin to compliment the solid color linen on the tables. Each table was named after their favorite Savannah Squares, Savannah Pralines were given out as favors and the catering (you guessed it) traditional southern fare. The dancing went on throughout the night and Christine’s sister created a tribute to Christine and Erik through a slideshow that played into the night for them and their guests to see!
An amazing day, one all that partook in the festivities will remember forever!
