Wedding and Reception Venues – Marissa Manzanares Photography

Part of the pre-ceremony images I capture are those taken of wedding and reception venues before the guests come in. They are even more beautiful when full of our family and friends. But it is so beautiful to see prior to the celebration, what the thought and design were that went into the details. Some couples have an arch at the front, some have florals placed along the edges of the aisle. Still others have an industrial vibe with Edison bulbs and greenery. Regardless what is inspiring the design for your wedding day, each detail holds a special place and should be represented however you want.

All of the photos below are just snippets of wedding and reception venues, the decor grandeur that was exemplified throughout the day in so many ways. But pausing just for a moment to capture these details — florals, tablecloths, plates, chairs — you get a glimpse into the thought that went into each item. Each design. And whether it’s myself or my team capturing them, all of the artistic work is recognized.
