It was nearly impossible for Ryan and I to tear ourselves away from our wedding reception, so I can definitely get on board with throwing an after party. As Calder from Calder Clark Designs says, “Everyone cares so much about first impressions, but this couple let us plan for a famous last impression!” Photos by Jeremy Harwell.

If you’re going to have a “family color” I think orange is a good one; that’s what this couple used to add pop to their late-night bash, and as Calder says, “It was a blast to splash that color around and punch up an otherwise dark little rib shack.”

From seat cushions to sunflowers, every last detail matched the palette of of orange and gray. There were even coordinating poker chips!

The late-night menu included Popcorn, Pigs in a Blanket, Deviled Quail Eggs, Billionaire’s Bacon, Jerked Venison Strips, Miniature Elvis Waffles with Banana and Peanut Butter, and Miniature Donuts.

Guests enjoyed a moonshine bar and hand-rolled cigars.

The bride and groom danced the night away with their guests, and everyone also enjoyed a photo booth with silly props.
