Old is new and inside is out!

Saturday, October 13, the ladies from Gathering Floral + Event Design turned the Gibbes courtyard from peaceful to posh for a beautifully designed wedding reception. Guests were led from the church to the cocktail hour at the Gibbes by the River City Dixieland Jazz Band in their signature N'Awlins style. James Burns of JBC Catering enticed palettes with passed hors d'oeuvres like oyster ponzu and Maine lobster rolls with truffled drawn butter.

Gathering decorated day and night to get the look just right

In the courtyard the large clear tent was decorated with elaborate crystal chandeliers, tables of various shapes and sizes for the seated dinner, and flowers in warm tones and different heights. Gathering also brought in large wrought iron seating arrangements for the garden lounge area, and complemented the color palette with textured throw pillows and beribboned lanterns.

Guests noshed on a delicious four course meal by JBC, and orange and triple-sec butter cake by Jim Smeal for dessert. When dinner was over, the Legendary JC's out of Orlando, Florida rocked party-goers into the night on the whimsical dance floor by OtherBrother Entertainment.
