wedding wednesday - reception details.

happy wedding wednesday! today i'd love to share details from our wedding reception. we had the dinner reception in the same space as our ceremony, at the metropolis ballrooms. i wanted the space to be light and summery. i kept things simple - and focused on the flowers and pops of red::


our wedding cake was a nod to summertime: a light white cake with sweet strawberry preserves and white buttercream frosting, decorated with polka dots and topped off with our custom cake toppers.



we had a sofreh, an Iranian wedding table, with a variety of symbolic items- painted eggs for fertility, candles for a bright future, Persian coins for prosperity on display during the reception. my mother-in-law spent hours creating each piece on the table. 

i'll share more wedding details more next week! 

xo, 
jillian
