The reception was held at the Hermitage Hotel. Outside in the lobby, guests found their seating assignments by reading their names from cards printed on the same golden paper that the programs were printed upon– designed and printed by Brocade:
The oh-so-beautiful cake by Jo’s Custom Cakes & Catering
The guest tables were decorated in a white color scheme: tall white centerpieces with white and cream roses, denrobium orchids, gold ting, manzanita, gold branches, and hand-strung crystals made up the top of the arrangement. The base of the vases were filled with submerged orchids and branches.
Cyllinders filled with submerged flowers and floating candles rested on the tables, along with placecards, solitary rose blossoms, and votives.

Brocade designed and made these table lumniaries with gold-dust vellum and red ribbon:
