Our reception will take place in their main ballroom.  There is a great guy's bar off to the right of the ballroom for cocktail hours as well - it used to be an old cigar bar.  

The ballroom itself is gorgeous!  There are high ceilings, beautiful chandeliers, huge windows, and will look great with our evening, candle lit, romantic feel.

Centerpieces 

Well we have finalized out centerpiece designs. We will be having 10 candle trio centerpieces and 7 tall curly willow centerpieces.  The candle trio centerpieces will have 3 various size vases - the tallest with a submerged orchid stem and the two shorter ones with submerged bear grass.  All will be filled with water and have a floating candle on top.  The tall centerpieces will have curly will, delphinium, hydrangea and other flowers  All of the tables will have 8 votives on them too.  

 

Here are our inspiration photos for the two:

Table Numbers and Place Cards

I would like to re-create the designs above.  One side will be the table number, the other the menu, and the other a note from us.  I love the font for the numbers too!

Update:  I made table numbers/menus/thank you cards that look exactly as pictured above.  I even found that same curvy font!

I found this image one afternoon and really loved the idea.  My grandpa whipped them together for me in one afternoon.  Ours our painted navy blue.

 Cakes

Here is our cake design - one 3 tier cake and 2 one tier cakes.  We bought crystal various height cake stands.

Chairs 

I would LOVE to have chivari chairs for both our ceremony and reception but who knew renting chairs cost soooo much money. Instead, we have choose to go with plain chair covers. 

Here is another cute idea for marking the bride and groom chairs stand out - Little signs for the back of the chairs.

Guestbook

We are having a photo booth so we are hoping the guests get really into it.  For our guest book, we are having the guests put in one of the photo strips (each person will get two copies one for them one for us!) in the book and signing by their photo.

Update:  Smo has kindly offered to make Adam and I a guest book by hand.  She is so crafty and I can't wait to see how it turns out. 

  

Above is what the photo booth will look like.
