Mix the table shapes at your reception...

This picture of a beautiful summer outdoor reception allows for guests to be seated at longer banquet table and rounds. Interchanging the banquets and rounds throughout the reception makes for an elegant, less coordinated look. This ideas is great for garden receptions for a more rustic feel. A variety of chairs could also be used to pull it all together.

Purple & Siver Candy Buffet by Jameson Creations

We've shared it before but Candy buffets and bars are still a growing trend at weddings! Brides have expanded in to other unique ideas for their bars and buffets such as desserts bars featuring cupcakes and cakes, brownies and cookies. Doughnuts were a recent request from one of our brides as well as popcorn and hot chocolate bars...great to warm guests up at a winter wedding!

Another really great trend is brides and groom walking down different aisles and meeting at the front of all their guests. People have really seemed to appreciate the out of the ordinary of the groom standing in one aisle as his bride comes up another. It's so romantic as the bride is given away and then walks across the front to meet her husband to be! Ain't Love Grand!

Meet us here for more great trends this wedding season!

Salt Ceremony

I love weddings and I am always excited to see what the couple can and will do to create a special or unique moment on their wedding day. I've witnessed many unique and special unity or memorial ceremonies and I never tire of seeing new ones. The Salt Ceremony was done at the wedding of Ray & Ann this past weekend and was so special and beautiful as the officiant shared its significance

When you perform the Salt Covenant, you are combining your individual grains of salt, symbolizing your united life. Your commitment to one another and to God cannot be broken unlesss you can separate your salt from your husband or wife-to-be (Salt Ceremonies, 2011)

The salt ceremony can be performed several ways. The bride and groom can have separate vials of salt and pour them into a "unity" container or as Ann & Ray did by taking a pinch of salt out of a beautiful container and placing several grains on each others tongues.
 What type of memorable ceremony will you do for your wedding?

 Here are more pictures from our blissful wedding weekend. Anne and Ray. What can I say? Their wedding left us feeling...seriously- we were speechless. It was such a special day and its so hard to put in to words how it made you feel. It was simply amazing. Everything about that wedding shouted LOVE and you definitely felt the love all through that place! Thank you Anne and Ray for reminding us of what it is to love and be loved.

Anne had a tropical vision and she ran it! We transformed the room into a tropical paradise. Thanks so much to the Columns staff for all their help.   

Beautiful Birds of Paradise florals and sharp greenery by Royal Creations adorned the place in bright colors. Black satin chair covers and cream organza sashes added just the right amount of elegance to the ceremony and reception areas. You knew you were in paradise standing beside one of the huge 6 and 14 ft palm trees (yep-real ones!) that lined the staircase, aisle for the ceremony and the buffet table.

Hats off to Anne and Ray Littlefield and their gorgeous "all about love" wedding. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful ending to our busy wedding weekend.
