I see so many weddings a year and every wedding seems to always have the same if not similar elements at each one. There is always some sort of ceremony (which that is what makes it a wedding and not just a party!), some sort of cocktail reception or at least cocktails, a dinner of some sorts whether it is served on a plate, a station, or a tray, and dessert because everyone loves dessert!
A couple who’s wedding I recently did, completely made their wedding their own. They were considered by some, non-traditional, however, they were married in a church and took what is normally known for a traditional venue, Cafe Brauer, and turned it into a fun cocktail party with heavy food stations catered by Entertaining Company. We had candles suspended from the ceiling by Frost Lighting, while Kloeckner’s Florists turned some staple pieces to give the room some WOW! The Bradley Young Orchestra kept the bride, groom, and all dancing on the dance floor.
We took a traditional space and turned it into a fun cocktail style area where guests wandered throughout the space, had cocktails, danced, and had fun! We “sprinkled” wedding items in through the night, like a cake cutting, Father of the Bride toast, first dance, and so on! It was truly magical. Having a fun time was the goal and no matter where they were going to be, they want to make sure that was going to be the case. Here’s a sneak peak at what we did!
The room was glowing and the bride & groom & family were singing with the band, on stage at the end of the night. This was truly a FUN celebration!
