The bride chose a silver dahlia overlay over a classic black cloth - this turned out really pretty with the red rose petals & floral accents on the cake.

Groom's Cake also by The Blue Cake Co.

This is a photo of seating near the buffet for those guests who didn't want to be too close to the music.  I love mixing the long seating tables with the round tables.  The long seating tables work great in the Atrium.   

Musical entertainment was provided by Joe Snell from Central Arkansas Entertainment.
Check out his new setup - it looks great!

The floral arrangements & lighting were provided by the fabulous Distinctive Designs by Tanarah.

Chairs from the ceremony were moved to seating tables for the reception. 

I love these black stem wine glasses the bride chose to compliment her Old Hollywood theme! Glasses are available from Confetti's Party Rental in Little Rock.

Guests were given the option to "spike" their coffee with Bailey's or cider with Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum.  The groom served homemade oatmeal raisin cookies with vanilla ice cream.

Heather & Justin asked their family & friends to write heartfelt notes & suggestions for their upcoming anniversaries.  I love this idea! What advice would you give to a new bride & groom on their 10th, 23rd or 40th anniversary?
We wish Heather & Justin the best today & forever - happy married life!
