Jodi & Matt: Part 2 of 2 – The Reception!
Please enjoy listening to Honey Bee (by Blake Shelton) while reading this post, the song has very special meaning for this wedding!
After a fabulous ceremony on Saturday at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens, Jodi and Matt had a Sunday Reception at The Crystler Museum of Art. We provided all floral decor, the gazebo for the sweetheart table, and draping for the grand staircase. Distinctive Event Rentals provided the linens and chairs. The reception was extraordinarily special, as a team of amazing vendors and colleagues came together to create an unforgettable reception for the very special Matt and Jodi.
The layout included both long and round tables, which allowed us to create unique and flowing tablescapes, incorporating flowers with fresh fruits, crystal candelabra, and unique containers. Heirloom china was used from both Jodi and Daevid’s family, adding a personal and eclectic touch to each table.

Once again, the floral decor was a total surprise to the bride and groom!
Overflowing urns contained an assortment of fresh flowers and fruits; Dark Melba roses, dark purple stock, Sourbonne lilies, hydrangea, orange hypericum berries, alstromeria, assorted ferns, and fresh oranges. Around the base of the urn, miniature pumpkins and gourdes were used as accents.
Daevid’s unique crystal candelabra were an elegant focal point, flanked on each side by table arrangements. They were dripping with green amaranthus, Black Baccara roses, Sorbonne lilies, stock, Sahara roses, hypericum berries, Dark Melba Roses, Billy Balls, hydrangea, fresh fruits/gourdes, and assorted greenery. Tall taper candles alternated with shorter votive candles, to illuminate both the flowers and the gorgeous crystal for a ethereal effect.
The round table arrangements featured dramatically tall glass vases with fern curls, Bells of Ireland, Black Baccara roses, Sorbonne Lilies, amaranthus, Sahara and Dark Melba roses, fresh artichokes, dusty miller, and assorted greens.
