Allie + David: Part 2

After the beautiful wedding ceremony, guests were invited back to the family owned Turf Valley Country Club for a truly gorgeous reception. Allie's wish to completely transform the ballroom into a garden party was achieved by using thousands of flowers, specialty lighting and extensive fabric draping.

In addition to a raw bar, lots of butlered hors d'oeuvres and a pasta station for cocktail hour, guests were treated to sushi made by on-site sushi chefs from Baltimore's Matsuri Restaurant. The couple chose a served signature drink of refreshing Peach Bellini's.
Rings make it official!

Gorgeous candlelight dinner.

Wonderful view of the elegantly decorated tables. Tabletop glasses, flatware, chairs and china are all from Party Rental Limited. Custom table linens from Table Toppers in Mt. Washington.

This photo shows how even a large wedding party can have fun seating at a served dinner. This is a bridal table for 30 guests. It's important to seat the wedding party with their dates, place seating all around the table, and use a table that is at least 36" wide so that there is room for flowers but still close enough across the table to converse.
