Jessica + J.T.: The Reception at Galleria Marchetti

Yesterday, I posted the first part of Jessica and J.T.'s wedding.  Today's post is dedicated to their beautiful reception at Galleria Marchetti.

Galleria Marchetti is a hidden gem in the city.

The room looked stunning with the dramatic centerpieces by Scarlet Petal.

The first centerpiece was a round and lush sphere of flowers that included hydrangea, roses, cushion poms, and hypericum berries held in a tall and slender hourglass vase with a few hanging crystals as accent.

The second centerpiece was a trio of mercury glass pedastals that displayed pillar candles encased in glass hurricanes.  Surrounding the trio of candles was three mint julep cups containing more green hydrangeas, roses, and tulips.

The escort card table was simply beautiful.  There was a series of five cylinder vessels in varying heights that displayed groupings of blush pink and celadon hydrangeas with the prettiest pink escort cards that I have ever see!

Can we take one more look at those escort cards?  I love the POP of pink!

One very delicious cake by Amy Beck that included devil's food chocolate and vanilla cake on alternating layers.

Scarlet Petal accented the cake with fresh flowers.

The ladies put their bouquets in vases on the head table.

Both Jessica and J.T. loved the Devil's Food cake!

As the evening continued, there were a few toasts.

And then the dancing began courtesy of Dan Hayes Orchestra!

Congratulations to a very fun couple!  I wish all of the best in your future together.

I am so thrilled to finally share the photos from the bridal event at The James Hotel earlier this month! The night was filled with so many wonderful brides-to-be and amazing wedding experts. The atmosphere was stylish and fun, the perfect combination. Re-live the night with me, in the images below!

Larkspur Floral Designs created stunning arrangements for the event.

The Bridal Lounge was made possible by the James Hotel and their wonderful event space.  It was such a great night at such a fabulous venue.

Glazed & Infused brought their A-game with their personalized donuts.
Truth be told, it took so much self-control to have just one.

Asha Salon had plenty of advice to create your own perfect wedding day beauty look.

The James had such a comfortable feel, guests kicking back and enjoying each others company. 

The James Lounge room was set as for the after party.  Guests could catch a movie, enjoy a glass of drink, or indulge in a late night snack that included truffled popcorn!

The goodie bags for every bride!
