Planning Your Reception / Reception Venues

As husband and wife, the first few hours after the ceremony, is the time for family and friends to share in the warmth of congratulations, the festivity of the occasion, and to celebrate with champagne – a toast to the bride and groom!

The secret to any fabulous reception is careful planning, attention to detail, good food, the company of the people you love and a great venue.
