A Soundview Reception!
Happy Saturday everyone! We hope you had a great week and are ready for the weekend ahead! It is that time again. Yes - your weekly blog post! Today, we will look back on our trip to a venue that is located just along the Long Island Sound. What could be more beautiful than having your event right by the water? Our clients, Christena & Ricky recently celebrated their wedding reception at the fabulous Soundview Caterers and our team had the pleasure of bringing their decor to life. We have a variety of content from that day that we would like to share with you here - and if you haven't already, head over to our Instagram and take a look at this special walk-through video taken by our team!
For the special reception, this took place on the upper level of the oceanside venue. In order to make a grand statement upon guests' initial entrance, we made sure their walk up to the space was as beautiful as can be.
As you can see on the left, our team dressed the stairway railing with elegant white draping, along with simple greenery and white floral arrangements. The decor placed along the stairway aimed to pair well with the decor that led into the main ballroom.
Continuing on, guests took note of what was to come as they walked through this natural arch created by our team. This particular structure is very representative of the celebration to follow as the top of the frame resembled a shape of a lovely heart. Pairing with the floral theme, the arch consisted of white floral arrangements, including white roses and hydrangeas, along with added greenery for extra flair.
Now, it is time for the main event! Christena, Ricky, and their guests walked through their arch and entered a beautiful oceanside oasis. From the main stage to the tabletop centerpieces, our team aimed to give the bride & groom the reception decor they deserved on their utmost special day.
This ballroom was surrounded by tall windows that provided the most stunning ocean view, as well as the perfect amount of natural light.
For each dining table, our team prepared tall, grand centerpieces that were arranged with white hydrangeas blankets, with added white roses and natural greenery. In our opinion, there's no better way to make a grander statement!
With the couple's reception stage in the very center of the ballroom, it brings full attention to the bride & groom's special throne for the evening.
Before we get into the aspects of stage decor, allow us to point out the bride & groom's lovely sweetheart table that stood alongside. Continuing with the floral theme, our team whipped up a stunning table-top floral blanket with the white arrangements that match across the entire ballroom. This color scheme brings out a form of elegance that cannot be put into words, and we can't get enough! That leads us to the final aspect of decor, which would be the very forefront of the room - the main stage!
Beginning with their backdrop, Christena & Ricky's backdrop consisted of a classy candle-lit wall, paired with a square floral arch standing high above the space. Other details included an elegant white love seat that acted as the couple's evening throne, with additional tall side pieces consisting of a similar floral combination, along with small candle holders placed on the edge of the space.
When it comes to setting up decor for a fabulous occasion, it is all the more amazing when it takes place in a venue like Soundview Caterers. Their open ballroom and panoramic outdoor views simply made preparation an absolute pleasure to handle. We are honored to have been a part of Christena & Ricky's most special day and we truly wish them all of the best as they begin their new journey together as husband and wife.
