Industrial Chic Wedding Reception

My friend, Cynthia, has had two daughters married within this year. Actually within 7 months of each other. The girls were both married in the LDS Temple in Mesa and then had receptions elsewhere. And of course they didn't want their receptions to be the same. With good cheer, imagination and a lot of hard work, Cynthia pulled off two very beautiful receptions. Rachel and Kyle had a theme of Industrial Chic. The reception was held at the old fruit packing plant at Sahuaro Ranch Park in Glendale.
And it poured the last two days! But they pulled it off anyway. Here are Rachel and Kyle coming in. You can see the luminaria lined pathway behind them.

These photos aren't in order, but it's late and so they are staying in the order they loaded. This is a blurry photo of them feeding each other cake.
And Cynthina and her sister in law Debbie, made Rachel this beautiful boquet using vintage jewelry.

Besides, Industrial Chic, There was a theme of peacocks and peacock feathers. As I was a helper, Iwas there early while we prepped. See the cool Mr and Mrs sign over the family table? Cynthia made that too. As well as the cool modern light fixture in the left corner. All the centerpieces were different.

Cynthia had this cool sculpture of their last name (Helton) made by an artist from Prescott.

The chandlier they made.

The newlyweds.


There was a painting of a tree instead of a guestbook. You pressed your finger or thumb on an ink pad and made a leaf on the tree. Then you signed your name. It was really cute.

 The wedding cake. And you can't have too many photos of the cool bouquet.
 Food tables. Part of my job to work on those.

 My friends, Penny and Sue.
 The boutineers and corsages were all made of gears and feathers.

 Ribbon streamers were waved over the couple as they left! It was a fun evening, and my feet hurt!

I didn't get my camera out all day, so it's fun to see some pictures. It was a fun day and full of fun projects all month getting ready for it. My favorite day was working on some projects with you.
