The Desmond Great Valley Hotel & Conference Center in Malvern, PA is an awesome location to host the celebration of the most special day in your life. Melinda & Paul enjoyed each and every minute of their reception, and could not have stopped smiling even if they tried !
The first time I met Melinda & Paul, I knew that their reception was going to be a blast. They didn't leave the dance floor from the moment the music began until the very last song ! Their evening began with a lavish cocktail hour in the lounge before their guests entered the Grand Ballroom. Before dinner was served, Melinda & Paul shared their first dance, and the Maid of Honor & Best Man toasted (and roasted) the newlyweds. Between dinner courses, Melinda welcomed her Grandfather, and Paul welcomed his Mother to the dance floor for special dances. After dinner, they cut their cakes (Melinda surprised Paul with a unique "grooms cake"), and the dancing began. Half way through the night, Melinda tossed her bouquet, and Paul threw his football.....with Melinda's garter wrapped around it... a pretty cool twist on the average "garter toss"!
