We were in a very big high peak tent for the reception. With 300+ guests in attendance it needed to be big. As the evening progressed the orange and pink lighting became more rich and intense. It really added a layer of color and ambiance that the guests really enjoyed. Their cake was so adorable with the ruffles in the pink and orange. Guests received mini versions as favors to take home to enjoy. I really loved how the tent looked for the first dance. The lighting was perfect with the custom gobo on the tent ceiling. I will confess I've never experienced the number, length of time and level of creativity that everyone put into their toasts. I think we had 4 scheduled but ended up at 7 total - whew! They were all heartfelt and super creative. The "Becoming a Canadian Citizen Kit" presented to Lindsay from Jordan's brothers was a favorite of the crowd.
