Outdoor Tented Reception

When Jessica and Stephen came to me and shared that they wanted to have the reception at Stephen's parents house, I was elated. We wanted to tell their story in every detail- Stephen was from Virginia, Jessica California with family in VA. Their paths crossed at a VA wedding, and the rest was history. We made sure that we were able to incorporate Jessica's '“West Coast style” with plenty of Stephen's “East Coast tradition”. Jessica wanted to make sure that she was able to spend special time with her mom and honor her dad who had passed, and she did so in such a beautiful way! Lush florals in hues of mauve, blush, ivory, and plum complimented by delicate greens and gold accents complimented the softness of the sailcloth tent and custom draping. We mixed modern and tradition with the gold chandeliers that hung over the bars and dessert table as well as over the dance floor and guest seating. So thankful for Nikki Santerre and Heart Stone Films for capturing all of the emotions and beauty of the day in ways that far exceeded anyone's expectations. The full list of vendors is over on the blog!
