Peacock Inspired Reception at MSU Riley Center

Guests arrived to the reception at MSU Riley Center and were treated to a cocktail hour with passed hor d’oeuvres and drinks by Pretty Presentations Catering while the wedding party finished pictures.  Once the bride and groom arrived the guests were entertained by the cutest first dance.  Thanks to Films by Flint for capturing their awesome first dance.

 After the memorable first dance guests dined on food by Pretty Presentations Catering while enjoying tunes by Z and the Party Faktory.  Here are a few of the details from the reception…

The entry table in the lobby set the tone for the reception…

Guests entered the ballroom under moss covered arbors…

Fabulous cakes by Cups N’ Cakes…

The ruffled linen on the wedding cake table matched the ruffles on the brides dress…It’s all in the details.

 The beautiful purple and teal shimmer linens from Pretty Presentations Event Rentals were perfect for the peacock affair and the glowing, submerged orchid centerpieces topped the cocktail tables around the dance floor.
