Our reception will be held at Lake Lanier Islands Resort in the "Summer House". It's a cute lakeside clubhouse with a private pool and poolside bar. The space inside is intimate and opens to the outdoors. We will be having the cocktail hour outdoors and then opening up the clubhouse for the reception.

{guestbook & card holder}
We will have our guestbook and card holder on a table decorated with lanterns and flowers. Here are some inspirations.

{table & chairs}
We will have one estate table (for the bridal party) and six rounds that seat 10 people. We are going to use aubergine linens & napkins. The chairs are chivari and will have a sash tied on them.

{table numbers}
I came across the idea of using pictures of us at the corresponding age for the table numbers and thought it was a great idea! I also love the look of the birch though.. we'll see!

This was a really tough choice for me! I went back and forth on CPs for weeks but finally decided to go with this look. The round tables will have round clear vases full of curly willow/burch branch with white dendrobium orchids and hanging votives strung on them. The tables will have lots of votives and orchid petals strewn about. Our estate table will have two of the curly willow/birch branch CPs (one on each end) with a variety of smaller clear vases full of all the different flowers used throughout our wedding (callas, orchids, hydrangeas, etc). Here are my inspirations!

{outdoor bar & pool area}
Our reception hall will open up to a private pool and outdoor bar. We'll have high boy tables out there for our guests decorated with small cluster vases of flowers. We'll decorate the bar and pool area as well. Here are some inspiration pictures!
