Also in the ceremony were principal sponsors (considered godparents) who were given the opportunity to walk into the ceremony and later sign the document witnessing the marriage. The Reception | When it came to the reception held at Crystal Fountain Event Venue, it was important to Kane and Jamie that guests were entertained the entire night. A live guitarist played and sang for the first dance; a fun photo booth was set up; and guests took part in the traditional Filipino money dance where everybody pins money on the newlyweds while dancing. Later in the evening, the groom surprised the bride by singing to her and the bride surprised everyone by changing into a second dress. The Decor | Lisa K Events designed exactly the clean and monochromatic theme Jamie and Kane were looking for. Guest tables consisted of tall white cherry blossom centrepieces atop gold vases, while the couple’s sweetheart table featured a mass drapery backdrop with lilac flowers and gold candlesticks. To influence the decor with more gold details, guests referred to a giant gold frame seating chart to take their seats and the newlyweds cut into a gorgeous five-tier wedding cake embossed with gold.
