Vintage

A vintage wedding day is a step back in time with all the details of a favorite era.

Red Carpet

A red carpet wedding reception can be a grand theatrical event or an event fit for a movie star (with a stunning background suitable for this incredibly formal wedding theme).

Holiday Theme

The winter holiday is a wonderful time to celebrate a couple who loves this time of year. A winter holiday wedding theme also comes with numerous opportunities for unique décor. A holiday themed event can be a cozy event filled with touches of cranberry and velvet or a striking affair with a neutral background and beautiful holiday poinsettias.

Winter

A winter wonderland includes all the touches of the season, which is different for every couple. For some couples, this wedding is a bright and shining event with crystals and lights. For others, a winter wedding is more of a muted affair with subtle touches of the season. The possibilities don’t end with décor; a winter wedding is a fantastic opportunity to include a hot cocoa bar (with all the fixings) or another seasonal favorite.

Autumn

This season is a beautiful time of the year, and a wedding themed around the season should be nothing less. An autumn wedding is the perfect occasion to include all the scents, tastes, and touches of the season. The exact nature of those touches is different for every couple: apple cider, seasonal wines and ales, rich colors, pumpkins, leaves, and other classic seasonal touches.

A spring wedding menu includes fresh flavors and décor that embodies the beauty of the season: flowers, greens, fresh produce, and delectable spring cuisine.

Local Flavor
