So last we left off, you had seen the beautiful ceremony and some of the cocktail hour set up. Now let’s venture into their AMAZING reception!
First, more cocktail hour deets:
This is a close-up of the cocktail hour tables, as well as a shot of one of the birch candle holders I told you about. I LOVED the birch accents…so elegant, yet organic at the same time.
Their family wedding picture display. I was so excited to see this LIVE at another wedding besides ours, just to see how it would work logistically! Loved it and it was so interesting for guests to look at.
Their paper elements. Each guest also got a lovely fan and a container of bubbles for the ceremony (it was HOT out!).
And now for some shots of their off-the-hook reception. Chiavari chairs? Check. Luxury Portable Bathrooms? You wouldn’t believe it, but check! Specialty linens? They were here! It was GORGEOUS. Check it out:
The food was delicious. Instead of having us select an entree course with our RSVPs, they offered each guest a choice of entree right there onsite. It was very restaurant-esque, ordering from the waitresses when we sat down.
After all the delicious food, and everyone oohing and ahhing over the gorgeous set-up, it was time to PARTY. And party we did! Dr. Groomy and I eventually left around 12:30, but I’m told the DJ didn’t stop rockin’ (on orders from the father of the bride) until well after 1:00am. Here’s a few pics of the party people:
Why, look who it is!!
Mr. Milwaukee Brunch Reviews himself, Chris,
and his partner Andrew.
I was too busy rocking out to Thriller and the like after that to take many more pictures, but I did get a chance to snap one of the gorgeous tent all lit up:
And with that, the night was over. It was a beautiful wedding, so full of love and joy. Congratulations Derrick & Adrienne! We are so happy for you and count ourselves lucky to be in your lives!
