Amber Romance...{part 2}

... Now on to the reception. The newlywed's reception was held at The Carlton Woods Creekside Fazio club house. To dress up the entry walkway we continued the theme of iron with shepherd hooks and lanterns. (right before the guests began arriving we also laid down a heavy layer of rose petals along both sides of the walkway). On the doors we hung the couples initials which were made from autumn colored cushion mums and hung from chocolate satin ribbon. The letters were moved to the inside of the doors after the Bride and Groom made their entrance to be enjoyed throughout the reception.

Sometimes the pictures speak for themselves. It was a truly stunning night. We decorated the entire clubhouse with rich autumn tones, gorgeous flowers and candlelight.
It was a slightly breezy nigh tand kept the covered patio at a perfect temperature to enjoy all the festivities.
We had 3 different styles for the table arrangements for the reception. One grand arrangement in a traditional style filled with bells of ireland, mocara orchids, two toned orange roses, red roses, lilies, antique green hydrangea and red alstromeria atop a glass vase accented with an amber underwater light and swirling curly willow. The bride and grooms table was a slightly larger version of the grand arrangements with all the bridesmaids bouquets gathered at the base to create a beautiful tablescape.
The other two styles were a low cube arrangement with a mixture of red alstromeria, two toned rises, mocara orchids and hypericum berries. The third style was slightly more contemporary with two toned roses at differing heights swirled in a clear glass vase accented by an amber underwater light and swirling curly willow to add movement and texture.
To add a little something to the cocktail tables throughout the reception we used antiqued copper goblets with beautiful dahlias and roses. While the coffee tables for the soft seating areas were decorated with a platform of coordinating flowers holding a beautiful lantern.
We are always looking for ways for you to enjoy all the flowers from your special day throughout the entire night. To decorate the indoor fireplace we moved the altar arrangements from the ceremony and to decorate a few of the buffet stations we used the pew arrangements. In our opinion it's always nice to use as many pieces all night as possible.

All these beautiful arrangements set the tone for a fabulously romantic evening for a beautiful couple.
