After the ceremony, the bridal party took a short ride to the reception site on a boat. The reception was held at The Buffalo Launch Club, with cocktail hour taking place inside and on the back patio.
Dinner and Dancing took place in a tent right next to the launch club and just steps from the water. It was so lovely to be right on the water on this steamy July day. When guests entered the tent they were absolutely wowed by the decor and the details! Obviously the bride's favorite color is purple - it was everywhere-including in the tent liner lighting which looked fantastic later in the evening.
The dramatic centerpieces from Flowers by Johnny were outstanding and enhanced the feel of the traditional yet contemporary reception.
The head table was a captain's table with the bridal party sitting on all sides...linens by Distinctive Occasions were beautiful shimmery braided overlays.
The stationery was so pretty and matched the decor and feel of the wedding perfectly thanks to Sarah of Belletristics.
We also used this design for a gobo that lit up the dance floor with Kristen and Nick's names. Here is a photo of the Bride and Groom during their first dance.
Thanks for allowing us the honor to be part of your day - we had a blast!
