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