The bride and groom knew that they wanted to have the ceremony and reception in the same place, so they were delighted when they found The Mansion in Austin, which has an elegant old world vibe. The selling point, as Ryan puts it: “the walls of the ball room were the exact shade of icy blue that was my accent color!”
Looked it up, and Yup! Pretty much the setup scenarios I imagined. Click thru to link, you'll see lots of people do this, some not because of space constraints, but because they attended a wedding/reception in the same room, and liked the concept so much, they chose to do it that way themselves. So ... don't worry, girlie! We can handle it. We got creative minds and skilz, don'tcha know? Posting several other pics too.
