The Reception Decor:
This is where most of my DIY work happened. I cleaned up the vintage birdcage and added moss and the felt birds that my mom made. The tables had the chevron runners and the yellow table numbers I made and the milk glass vases I collected. The signature drink - a margarita (it was Cinco de Mayo after all) was served in a mason jar with gray striped paper straws. The escort "cards" were a hit. As soon as we entered the reception room, I noticed that many of our guests were wearing the flowers. It was so special.
We entered the top floor of Vic's on the River and immediately went into the first dance. We had a beautiful dinner, cut the cake, threw the bouquet and did a little dancing with our friends and family. It was perfect.
