Our Wedding — Reception

March 28, 2022

Filed in: lifestyle

We held our reception at Hope Community Church. We were looking for a blank canvas we could make our own, and found one only a ten minute drive away from our parish! Estelle, the coordinator at Hope was such a delight to work with, we’re forever grateful for her warmth and hospitality.

Our venue provided all the sound and AV equipment, as well as the tables and chairs. When it came to wedding decorations, we aimed to only purchase what we would continue to use around our home. The rest, we borrowed, rented, or bought and resold.
