Crescent Hotel Wedding Reception

I cannot believe it has been a year since we were celebrating this wedding at the Crescent Hotel.  We got to work with so many great vendors on this wedding.  Kelly and Meaghan at Sweet Pea Events handled all of the planning.  Di Fiori had phenominal floral designs.  Roman Video Productions documented the whole thing on film.  Glenn Roush provided entertainment and lighting.  Averi Blackmon Photography graciously provided the photos showcased below.

Courtney and Jacob had a choreographed first dance.

A celebratory kiss from a job well done!

Jacob’s cake was an Ironman logo (the race not Robert Downey Jr. character), because Jacob is an avid runner and has competed in Ironman competitions.
In fact, he ran a 5k the morning of his wedding.

The chefs at the Crescent put together this lovely cake.

This is a perfect example of why I am so particular about toasting. You can have a picture with the bride, groom, and person giving a toast (bestman in this photo) perfectly framed. The guests can see the couple, but the toaster can look at the bride & groom to eliminate the nerves of facing the crowd.

All smiles for the father-daughter dance.

I love both of the smiles on their faces. The toss portion of the reception does not have to be cheesy to be fun!

Courtney and her family had prepared me that their guests were coming to party.

Jacob did not show any signs of running a 5k that morning. Apparently, that is just a warm up for an Ironman.

Everyone needed to catch their breath.

They finished the night with a private last dance together.

Then it was time for a flower petal send off.

Jen and I love how the classic Rolls and Courtney’s cover up make this photo look like it is from a different era.

The getaway car was a classic Rolls Royce.
