** This post and wedding by Jill Areheart~planner/designer with BIO!**
This was such a fun wedding! Jessica was one of the happiest bride’s I’ve ever seen – and that’s saying a lot! She and Billy and their families are so full of love and kindness and wanted to make sure that not only was it a special day for them, but a wonderful event for their guests as well.
The reception was at 701 Whaley, and the coral and apple green colors were perfect. We anchored the large space with black linens, so the bright colors could really pop. And Jessica really focused her flower budget on some “wow” pieces. Combined with the gorgeous food from Capital City Catering, the whole event was striking and fun.
But what made the reception really special were all the personal touches: from the cookie buffet with homemade treats from family and friends, to the basket of flip flops for dancing, and the adorable kids table to cater to all the little ones, they made sure everyone was attended to and included as part of the day.
Thanks to Landon Jacobs for the photos.

Shot of the reception in full swing. You can see the paper lanterns we hung over the dancefloor and the fabulous hanging floral piece from Something Special.
The Cookie Buffet! We found the perfect color ribbon and paper to bring in the coral and apple green.
Jessica is a teacher and a devoted aunt and wanted to make sure there was a fun kids table with food just for the little ones. A friend made the adorable sign and we had a blast creating decorations for the table.
We topped the guest tables with coral and apple green fabric woven around cylinder candles.
For the cake table, we layered one of our favorite linens – an ivory rosette – over coral and hung wrought iron lanterns above.
Melanie here… adding a shot Jill did not 🙂 but it is great….we created a photo booth and Lacy and Jill jumped in for a quick fun shot!
Love this shot!
