Millennium Center Reception Photography: Ashley and Brett

It’s time for the last sneak peek from Ashley and Brett’s wedding day! We’ve been to Wait Chapel for the ceremony sneak peek, the bridal party sneak peek, and then the rooftop of the Millennium Center … now it’s time to head inside and party at the reception!

Ashley and Brett’s cake by Cumberland Cafe was accented by the star displayed with their names and wedding date. I loved how it made a pretty backdrop and framed out the cake table.

These whimsical candle holders served as centerpieces for some of the reception tables.

Submerged calla lilies were elegant accents to tables as well, and were created by Amy Lynne Originals.

These old window frames served as a really creative way to display the seating chart at the reception! Ashley picked up old window frames from Habitat for Humanity’s Restore shop, painted them, and then her sister carefully wrote the names and tables with window paint. I thought it was creative, whimsical, and very shabby chic!

They popped some champagne and had their toasts…

Ashley’s father gave a toast incorporating their wedding slideshow that was poignant, witty, fun, and sentimental. Across the room you could see a mixture of tears and laughter – the perfect toast.

The head table hosted the bridal party and the bride and groom, with their stars showing on the dance floor as well as the wall.

Ashley and Brett found Cumberland Cafe via a recommendation and were so pleased with the taste and beauty of the cake.

And their recipients and significant others had fun joking around!

Time for one more vogue to strike the pose…and then we headed outside for a sparkler send off!
