October weddings equal a Halloween theme, which makes December the perfect opportunity to throw a Christmas reception. Lisa and Greg decided to go all out with a holiday theme at the Pond House Cafe in West Hartford, CT. They transformed their venue into a Winter wonderland complete with a giant Christmas tree, curtains and twinkling lights draped from the ceiling, and festive details all around.
Instead of traditional floral centerpieces, each table featured live trees adorned with mini ornaments. Other fun elements included Santa mail, glass bottles with mini trees as place cards, and jars of homemade garlic “very merry marinara” sauce for the guests. The couple even held their ceremony right in front of the fireplace and took gorgeous night portraits outside. Overall, Lisa and Greg’s wedding was the definition of merry and bright.
