stairwell at the front of the building where drinks and appetizers appeared for the whole bridal party- while guests were directed to the second room they would see. Cocktail hour was held in this location, and they had access to a full bar and large appetizer buffet. As guests mingled the newlyweds and their closest friends and family took their photos.
This area was a large ball room and to cover the whole space it took all of our team to make sure no one needed drinks, or directions to a restroom. While guests ate we walked around to each table to ensure everyone was well settled. The ball room was arranged to have a dance floor in the center near the bar to keep people dancing and had lots of pastels to keep a light airy feeling rather than a dark fall feeling, like you usually have with flowers like sunflowers. Center pieces were made with large slices of natural wood, with a mixture of bubble bowls with sunflowers, and tall lavender bottles with smaller flowers on top of the wood rounds. Along the front of the room was a long winding table with a dessert display between
the doors guests could enter through. After guests enjoyed a delicious meal they were invited to the dance floor following a couple special dances. Finally, the couple were able to cut their cake and the desert bar was opened to the eager guests. Following all the commotion, and time to settle down guests were instructed to go outside and collect a sparkler to send off the newlyweds to their chariot, the Proximity car that was waiting for them loaded down with a box of sweets and leftovers from dinner.
