Music and dancing is a big part of most wedding celebrations, but more and more couples are providing other activities to entertain guests of all ages during the reception. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Our venue had all of the elements of a carnival – a Ferris wheel, a merry go-round and the inside of the reception area looked like a giant circus tent. We also loved the idea of having elements of indoor and outdoors. The venue was nestled away in the mountains and had a very romantic feel.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. Candy Bar
  2. Table Arrangements
  3. Activities (Caricature Artist, Photo Booth, Palm Reader)

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Stephen and I did a first look before the ceremony. We were both so nervous. I can’t stop thinking about walking up to him and seeing him for the first time in his suit and seeing the way he lit up when he saw me in my dress. It was magical.
