Mahogany chiavari chairs and tropical centerpieces lend a “South Pacific” feel to this reception. Tropical upscale in the vein of Bali Hai or the Bahia! One of our unique tray passed items, also a crowd favorite are the tomato bisque shooters with grilled cheese points.
Coral lamour overlays set the tone for this reception. Coral is a sophisticated way to incorporate pink without being too “bridal barbie”! It is also somewhat neutral so it can be combined with many different types of accent colors and still be complimentary.
This is a first for me – the bride hand made all of her own napkins! She used different patterned fabric in the same color scheme and put little swatches on the placecards as well. Talk about unique and custom. She also requested a garden style menu with cheeses, vegetables, a few different salads and a carving station. Nice and light for an outdoor summer reception.
My favorite part of this bright reception were the placecards displayed in the wheatgrass! The long feasting table in the center added some interest to the layout as well as color from the table runner.
Table runners are an easy way to add a lot of interest to your dining tables. Here we have celery pintuck runners to incorporate more color into the chocolate and white. The layout is also unique, with the tables around the edges and the dance floor in the middle, that way all of your guests have a great view!

Here is a fun couple that used characters from the Mario Bros. video games for their table numbers. Teal and cornflower blue linens complimented the Spanish style Rancho Bernardo Courtyard in soothing tones. The buffet included chicken and beef fajitas and a cheese enchilada casserole as a nod to the bride and groom’s affinity for Mexican fare.
This bride’s personality shone through with the bright daisies all over. I especially adore the ones tied to the sweetheart table chairs. The wedding arch had bright ribbons tied all around that danced in the wind through the ceremony.
A fun alternative to the traditional style of wedding, this couple opted for heavy appetizers and a combination of belly ups with bar stools and seated cocktail tables. Open seating encouraged the guests to mingle and dance and partake of the eye catching appetizer display.
