The French country chic look really shines in Kalsoom and Jay’s wedding reception from An Endless Pursuit! After their outdoor wedding ceremony, guests enjoyed a perfectly presented beer station, lounged on luxurious furniture and then stepped into a reception complete with striking wood tables, sweet purple flowers and romantic candles abound. Of course what French-inspired reception would be complete without macaron favors!? And that rustic-chic cake didn’t hurt either!
From Kalsoom: Everything, from our ceremony music to the Belgian beer station (Jay grew up in Brussels) to his mother’s handmade quilt as our guestbook (she is an incredible artist) were purposeful and authentic to us and our family.
Our seating chart was written on a mirrored window panel, and we mixed wooden trunks & farm tables with more opulent mirrors, furniture, fairy lights and candles. It looked pretty magical.
Kalsoom’s advice to other DC-area couples:
Don’t stress about every minute detail – I can assure you, no one notices if your favor bows were tied just right, or if your flower color was just so. Be happy and relaxed and don’t sweat the small stuff!
