The reception area overlooked a beautiful valley at sunset on the side of the castle. A single, rectangular table with a grey and white floral patterned tablecloth held an abundance of delicate crystal details. A vertical gold frame was placed in the center of the table with hanging crystal accents and small glass candle globes that created a romantic atmosphere.
Tons of greenery and blush toned orchids were placed on the top shelf of the centerpieces, followed by a bedding of lush florals along the base. Candles were scattered throughout the table setting which included tall, glass candle holders. Grey napkins were held together with a delicate crystal napkin holder and were set atop luminous glass patterned plates and a single light peach peony was used as a finishing touch.
