Jordan + Jeremy’s Reception!
Grab a cup a coffee or a glass a wine and get ready as this post is long! There is simply no way to break up this post into smaller parts! The details of this wedding are just so much fun and better to see all together! We have done two previous posts on the decor of the ceremony and cocktail hour (along with 3 teaser posts!) Now the finale!
Even with this overall Atrium room shot at the Ronald Reagan Building – you still can’t see all the stations of fun at this wedding! To give just a little backdrop – Jordan is a school teacher – so some of the props might make more sense once you see them!
To bring in the true school spirit – we ordered some basic student high school lockers and painted them for the couple. We still have them – so let us know if you want them for your wedding! It was the talk of the wedding and everyone had so much fun looking inside and seeing all the fun photos [if you look closely enough here - you can see her dad Rick Scott (who is currently running for Governor in Florida)].
Another fun station was the “Map Station”. Since both Jeremy and Jordan love to travel so much – they wanted to see where everyone else has traveled to. So we placed pink and green pins on the maps for where Jordan and Jeremy have been and asked the guests to place the yellow pins (as shown in the letters J) on the map for where they have been.
Then we had the photo booth. I will most likely do a whole other post just on the photos from the photographer (Documentary Associates) that took the photo booth photos as they were hilarious!
(You can’t have a photo booth these days without props – we got these from Etsy!)
A couple of days ago we showed you the program we designed…here is the menu that matches!
There were so many flowers everywhere at this wedding that there just is not enough room in this post to show them. We had tall arrangements filled with green and white dendrobium orchids along with jaguar pink orchids and yellow mokara orchids! The two long head tables for the wedding party had lots of fun different shaped vases filled with seasonal local flowers including local hydrangea, peonies and roses.
One of the funniest things about this wedding is that Jordan wanted to possibly trip up the guests by numbering the tables with prime numbers (take a look at the photo above this one and you can see that table number is #29). Carla David Design did such an amazing job with these table tents, the map station, soda station and lemonade/pink lemonade/limeade bar signs (below).
And now…the cakes! Cakes by Design did such an amazing job! I still can’t get over how she was able to create Jordan and Jeremy’s dog and how she used the decor on the groom’s cake to look like the masses/crowd (GENIUS!)
And…their super fun candy bar!
It was an amazing party and we had so much fun designing it!
Congratulations Jordan & Jeremy!
