Walking on Sunshine: the little details

Time to share all of the little details that I put a lot of thought and hard work in to!

Our seating chart was one of the first things our guests saw as they came upstairs.  I still love the idea that we came up with.
Our guest book sign in a simple frame from IKEA with one of my favourite milk glass vases.
We didn't have a slideshow but I did put out a couple of baby photos of Mr. Gazelle and I.
Our upstairs reception room at the Brock House.  We fit the maximum number of people in there that we could - 50 people in the main room and 6 people and a photo booth in a connected room.  I loved the fireplaces, the beautiful molding, the chiavari chairs...
We kept the decor very simple with our zinc letters, photo frames and milk glass bud vases.
I wasn't too concerned about keeping up our purple theme for the flowers in the bud vases, I was more interested in keeping them inexpensive.  The day before the wedding my girlfriends and I went to Costco to raid the roses in the flower department.  The flowers there are great quality and a great value.
Our bouquets rested in larger vases on the head table.
For the wee ones I left a colouring book with stickers and crayons at their seat.
Our favours of Russian Earl Grey loose leaf tea with homemade shortbread cookies rested on our guests' bread plates.
I made a sign pointing the way to our photo booth with the free download from The Wedding Chicks.
Our cake topper was so adorable.
I loved our wedding cake which was exactly as I envisioned.
I gasped when I saw our reception room.  It was just as I hoped it would be.

Did your reception space come together just like you imagined it?

Get caught up with the Gazelle recaps!
