They then donate the money to a charity of their choice.. after the ceremony the guest enjoyed the cocktail hour with a draped wall with floating frames that listed alphabetically what table they were at for the reception. The reception was decorated from a crystal chandelier with orchids over the dance floor to various styles of centerpieces on ivory draped linens with menu folded fuschia napkins with menus tucked inside to dazzle them with the food being served to cover both cultures.
