Gone are the days of setting your head table and wedding party into a long single file row! Today’s brides and grooms are opting to ditch that 80's setup and go for something a little less formal, a little more relaxed and a lot more fun!

Here our friends from Gala Decor chose to create an easy, almost 'lounge-like' setup, where the wedding party is seated at a pair of round tables, which flank the raised center ‘sweetheart table’, reserved for the bride and groom. The wedding party now has a chance to sit facing each other, which makes for easier conversation and helps them to feel like they are a part of the wedding and not just “on display”.

The overall look is a stunning and fresh way for the newly wed couple to truly enjoy the time spent with their wedding guests during the reception and encourages a sense of informalness without being overly trendy!

Nothing says summer quite like the perfect night, an ice cold beer, a good movie and some even better friends! So, when it came time to for this couple to view their wedding film, they invited thirty of their closest friends and family to them for an outdoor movie night!

Taking place on a perfect summer evening in August in the barn of a two hundred year old farm, the night was perfect with a cocktail reception in the peach orchard and a cozy viewing of the couple's wedding film as captured by Nataschia Wielink Photo + Cinema!

Serving locally made craft beer, freshly popped popcorn, classic concession chocolate bar choices and deliciously sticky candy apples, guests enjoyed the prettiest atmosphere of summer harvest flowers.

Designed and planned by Amanda Cowley Sweet Events, this amazing night was created and captured by a super-team of uber talented and creative wedding vendors including vintage rentals by The Warehouse, florals by My Bouquet and linens by Simply Beautiful Decor.
