Schmitt/Sartain Wedding Reception

May 5th, 2012 was a day meant for events: Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby....and the Schmitt/Sartain Wedding! I had so much fun with Kristin and Bryn helping them plan their wedding reception! It was truly a special day!

We start out in the Glassroom, where the guests were treated to a cocktail hour. 

The weather was perfect outside, so the patio was a popular place to hang out while guests awaited the bride and groom.

The centerpieces were simple, yet reflected the theme that would be seen in the Ballroom later.

We brought in some of our soft seating from our lower lobby to create a lounge area.

Between the Glassroom and the Ballroom, guests were invited to browse through a photos of the couple's engagement session.

We have been seeing some creative guest books lately! This week we have a guitar! Painted by the bride, this created a great writing surface and a fun keepsake for the bride and groom.

I grabbed a picture after it was signed:

The reception followed in the Ballroom. Always a breathtaking sight!

The guests found their names written on these adorable cards wedged into wine corks!

The gift table included these cute greenery initials!

The table numbers were designated by number cut-outs and wine bottles with beautiful florals.

The sweetheart table kept the same theme.

Love this trend! These signs are just tied to the back of the chairs!

I always recommend giving your guests something to do during the reception. A photo area was provided for the guests to get creative and create some fun memories! These props were some of the best we have seen!

The cake was a delicious buttercream beauty decorated with simple flowers.

The Groom's cake was great! I can honestly say this is the first Xbox cake I have ever seen. (By the way, it was peanut and jelly flavored! Yum!)

Favors were provided for the guests on the bar. "To have and to hold and to keep your drink cold!" Cheers to Kristin and Bryn!

It was a lovely day that couldn't have been better!
