The bride wanted an alternative option to the regular tent folded place cards but didn’t want something too elaborate that would confuse guests. We decided to use trays and fill the base with rice so that the place cards would stand at about an 115 angle or so. When we first told the venue that we’ll be dropping off some items along with a bag of 20 pound rice, they immediately informed us that we could not throw any rice inside the venue (or outside, for that matter). Once we told them that wanted to use it for the place card setting, they relaxed a bit and said it wouldn’t be a problem!
The floral designer placed a beautiful arrangement of flowers leaning towards the left just as the bride desired to give the feel of an orchid plant that was used throughout the reception room. Vale of Enna graciously snapped some photos and sent them to me as well! It was quite beautiful with the sun shining ever so brightly to greet guests when they exited the ceremony.
Can’t wait to see the other shots from the photographers!
