Today is part two of Aurora and Ben's spectacular gilded vineyard themed wedding at Highlands Ranch Mansion.  We ended cocktail hour with a big group photo on the front steps of the mansion, and then invited everyone in for dinner and dancing. I loved the whole feel of the reception room, and the centerpieces by The Flower House were AH-mazing! It's so rare that we get to use gold as an accent lately, this was a treat!

Guests left wishes for the couple on the wishing tree guestbook, and picked up their escort card that were color coded mattes that told the caterers what entree the guests had selected.


We used a variety of table shapes to make it interesting and keep with Aurora's love of clean lines.  We had long, square, and round tables all covered in either gold or white linens.


 Look close and you'll see gilded leaves and grapes in the centerpieces.

I think this was my favorite look of all the centerpieces. The long tables had mirrored runners (staggered mirrored tiles), with an eclectic mix of florals including vases filled with gilded florals, floating flowers, pillar candles, small gold detailed cups with white flowers.

Aurora loves green cymbidium orchids, so they were not only used in the bouquets, but also on the cake along with some gold gilded leaves.  Guests also enjoyed a lovely dessert bar.



 After all the food, it was time to dance.  The couple wanted an amazing dance party and the band made sure that happened!



As guests lined up for the sparkler getaway they received a wine key/opener for a favor.

Here's a toast to the vendors for a great gilded event!
