La Venta Inn Reception | Michele + Kurt

I’m so excited to blog Part 2 of Michele and Kurt’s wedding. The reception was amazing!!!!  I’ve done quite a few weddings at La Venta and the details for this reception were by far my favorite.  I’m so in love with the lanterns that were hanging from the rafters!  The long tables, candles and floral decor gave such a romantic mood and were perfect for a rainy day.  The rain did not keep this party down.  It was such a great day to cozy up with someone you love!  What a perfect feel for a wedding day :)  I loved watching Michele & Kurt dance the night away with friends & family!
