Wedding Flashback: Reception Details
I realize that I already had one post about The Details, but those details were mainly just my crazy ideas. These details are more about the flowers and table decorations. Plus, I finally sat down the other night to look at my pictures, and in doing so, I gained an entire new appreciation for my photographers at Dawn's Photography. The detail photos that I found waiting there were WAY better then anything I had thought we would get. I'm so thrilled to have gotten them, especially since I didn't even ask for them! So here are some of the reception details that were captured on film that I just LOVED!
The tables in general was something I thought turned out really well. I particularly liked how the succulents came out:
As well as all the china plates that I collected over the year. I thought that it all came together really well.
A surprise hit was the jam! Half way into the dinner, when I was running around talking to everybody, I can't tell you how many people stopped to talk about the jam that I had canned and placed at every place setting. It was a bigger pain in the ass then I initially thought it would be, but it turned out pretty cute.
And another surprise, was the mason glasses. I honestly wasn't sure if people were really going to put their name's on the glasses, but they did! They also looked so cute sitting on all the tables.
I also must admit how surprised I was all the monogrammed stuff, including the head table runner. This looked really awesome I thought. But then, I'm a little biased I guess.
It took a lot of work, but I'm really happy with the way it all turned out. If you had asked me five years ago what my wedding would have looked like, I never would have imagined it being so detail oriented. But looking back now, I wouldn't have had it any other way.
