A reception honoring the couple was hosted by the parents of the bride at the Marshall Visual Arts Center following the ceremony. Upon entering the reception hall, guests were greeted with a romantic and enchanting atmosphere of reflective lighting with soft twinkling lights and a décor which reflected the brides theme of Southern Elegance. The tables, all dressed in navy tablecloths, were decorated with lace, vases of pearls with floating candles, a variety of lanterns, romantic votives and simple but beautiful floral centerpieces. The menu of heavy hors doeuvres, to include a mashed potato bar, continued the theme of Southern Elegance and was beautifully presented. Dancing followed the grand entrance of the wedding party and the first dance of the bride and groom. The evening was crowned by a sparkler spectacular send-off of the couple.
The rehearsal dinner was hosted by the grooms parents, Martin and Kelli Luna. The dinner was held at the church on Friday night and was catered by Olive Garden, a favorite of the couple.
Following a cruise to Cozumel, the couple will make their home in Longview.
