Wedding reception centers in Utah typically don’t have wedding celebrations quite like the one that Ivy House experienced on February 21, 2014. This wedding reception was completely and solely about honoring the bride and the groom. Many very clever and unique ideas were shared with their guests that must be mentioned here.
First of all, above their beautiful cake (created by a dear friend), the couple had strung ribbons with photos and short synopsis explaining each step of their romantic beginning and the fun along the way. Everyone that waited in line to wish them well, was entertained by not only admiring their three-tiered simple elegant cake, but also could see the fun and love Erika and Jonathan already share.
Another unique idea that I have not seen before were two 8×10 frames containing “Things You May Not Know About Him” and “Things You May Not Know About Her”. They were fascinating to read, and I don’t even know these two lovebirds! Again, it was all about honoring the highlighting this beautiful new union!
Erika’s favorite book is “Gone With the Wind”. On display was a copy of the classic opened up with a photo of Jona and Erika on a romantic candlelit park bench. It could be where he proposed to her. With their names written in the book, it was another beautiful statement highlighting this couple at one of our Utah wedding venues.
The table centerpieces consisted of red roses with blue delphiniums and white baby’s breath in simple vases. These were arranged by the groom’s father. These sat atop a stack of books wrapped in book covers of bright red, white, and blue. A few red rose petals were scattered across the blue tablecloths and among the several votive canoes. It was simple and again reflected the fun spirit of this beautiful couple.
