Kim and Dave’s wedding was filled with so many special moments and details, that it yielded a two part post.   Both the ceremony and reception were held at Indian Hills Country Club, offering convenience for their guests, many who were out of town.  While Kim, Dave, their families and friends were photographed, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors douevres while the space was being transformed.

A large gold glitter monogram was the focal point of the room {DIY to come}, creating a nice backdrop for toasts.

When Kim and Dave saw the menu offerings, they were sold on the location.  Below is a photograph of the Asian stir fry action station, which consisted of lo mein, rice, cashew chicken and broccoli and beef.  Guests enjoyed creating their own in the adorable take out boxes complete with chopsticks.  Build your own mini dogs and sliders were offered as a nod to Dave’s hometown, Chicago.  The orange chipotle sauce was the perfect enhancement to the waffle fries.  They also served an array of flatbread artisan pizzas, turkey on cheddar biscuits.

If you recall from my previous post, this bride to be was fearless in mixing silver and gold.  The result was nothing short of amazing.

One of the greatest perks of hosting your ceremony and reception in the same location is the ability to maximize your decor.  If you recall, the glass cylinders, petals and pillars were originally aisle decor.  Two of the large baby’s breath centerpieces stood tall at the altar before gracing guests’ tables.
