Yesterday I showed you Joanna + Matt’s ceremony at the Town & Gown Theater in Athens, and today I’m back with their wedding reception at Hendershot’s. It’s such a cozy, warm space, and they made the most of it with colorful, fresh, decadent details. I particularly love the fruit in the centerpieces. It’s natural opulence and fresh color, and I’ll spare you the wedding-related pun about being fruitful. (You’re welcome)

And the cake! I love the look of the naked cake, but when you add the fresh fruit, it just looked so fresh and delicious.

The reception was an intimate one, with lots of good conversation and a chill, fun atmosphere. Since Hendershot’s is a coffee shop, it really gave the party the vibe of good fun and conversation.

I have to say, one of my favorite things about the reception was seeing Matt with his mom. They had a few really sweet, loving moments together and I always love watching people really appreciate each other.

 

And the same goes for Joanna and Matt. I really think they take the time to appreciate each other and their small moments together.

I loved what they did for a Photo Booth. It wasn’t off in the corner, but was actually right on the stage, next to the dance floor. So it was a popular spot, especially with the photos of the bride and groom and signs with cute sayings. fun wedding Photo Booth ideas fun wedding Photo Booth ideas

 

And in case you’re wondering, Matt is a lawyer.
