My last post was about Kate and Drew’s beautiful outdoor ceremony. Now, it’s time to see the reception with lots more unique decor!
All photos were taken by Anthony Barlich.
The reception was at Acquaviva Winery which was accross the street from the ceremony location. Here is a great picture in front of the sign.
The reception was filled with as much decor as the ceremony. Each centerpiece was different and yet each perfectly captured the vintage look Kate wanted.
She used lots of candles, too.
More centerpieces and again the flowers are all made out of fabric!
The turquoise and purple was a great contrast from rest of the decor.
The cocktail hour was followed by a plated dinner. This picture is during the toasts.
One of Kate’s brother is a senior in high school. His homecoming football game was the night before the wedding so he flew into Chicago that morning. Kate is so sweet and had the band announce his team winning and gave him a crown!
Kate did not have a wedding cake but she did have a birthday cake! Their wedding date is also her mother’s birthday.
Along with the birthday cake was a sweet table filled with cake pops…
After dinner, it was time for the first dance. In the foyer of the winery is a beautiful rotunda where they shared this special moment.
However, about 2 minutes into their song, the music changed and their entire bridal party joined in for a flash mob!
She also invited guests to be apart of it. Grandparents even took the time to learn some of the dance moves!
The flash mob was a great way to kick off the dancing for the rest of the night.
It was a filled dance floor until the very end!
Thank you Kate and Drew for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day!
