The Idea: By attaching red paper lanterns to bamboo poles that were hooked up to an electrical source, Bradaigh Flor and Thor Wagner created a dramatic effect at their August wedding. The couple placed the red globes along the bank of a stream that runs through the bride's parents' estate in Roxbury. Once the sun set, they reflected in the water.

Why We Love It: Punctuating unexpected locations around your reception site with a decor element keeps the look and feel of your wedding consistent yet surprising.
