To find their table, guests looked for their name on the vintage windowpane...where we also had attached pictures of the couple from all kinds of fun events while they were dating.
On the round guest tables the centerpieces were tall and elegant.
While the long tables had wood planks that ran down the middle, filled with mercury glass votives, pillar candles, milk glass vases and silver mint julep cups filled with romantic flowers.
All the tables had family photographs, as well as a custom fun "I Spy" game.
One of my favorite memories of this wedding is the bridal party introduction. The bridal party came through the main door, but when it was time for the bride and groom's grand entrance we slide the barn doors open...what a great reveal! Not many wedding venues can do that. Later the doors stayed open once the dancing started...loved the breeze on the dance floor!
Once seated, guests ordered their dinner from the pre-selected menu. At first I thought they were bringing out the dinner family style...then I realized that was the individual portion. Guests raved about the food!
Then on to dancing...
.....and cupcake eating (half were gluten free cupcakes for the bride and many of her guests), and the candy stations were devoured by the end of the night. The couple chose to do a small cake to cut, just for tradition. LUV the cake topper!
..and of course, I posted awhile back about the German bridal cup tradition. The bride drinks from the small hanging cup, the groom from the large. Whoever finishes first is said to "Rule the House". Bride always wins of course. There was a lot of cheering for this tradition!
Guests didn't want to leave.....they were finally pulled away from the photobooth at the end of the night only because we set up an after party in Hex's Tavern.
