Bird-Themed Wedding Reception Decor

Clusters of dainty flower centerpieces dotted the tables, set atop used books that were "not only pretty, but had titles about wildlife, birds, or love," Britany says. Nestled in-between them were ceramic birds and metal birdcages.

Guests were served a three-course meal that included fresh greens dressed in a pomegranate-jalapeño vinaigrette; Alaskan halibut drizzled with an apple-Chardonnay glaze; olive oil and herb-marinated skirt steak; and chicken breasts stuffed with smoked mozzarella, spinach, mushrooms, and pine nuts. A local bakery brought in chocolate whoopie pies for dessert. But "the real treat," according to the bride, "was homemade apple pie, made by my father and Brandon's grandmother."
