Often, wedding venues have fireplaces. Most times, the brides “want something on the mantle”. Today I am featuring a few mantles that we have decorated. Which one is your favorite? Did you have a fireplace/mantle at your wedding or reception site? How was it decorated? Please share your pictures with me to post in a future blog. Send images, along with photographer credit, to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Carnegie Hotel in Johnson City, Tennessee, has a ballroom that is ornate and one of our favorites in the area. The fireplace served as the altar for the ceremony for this wedding. Tom Pardue of Pardue Photo got a good picture of our work:

In another ballroom at the same hotel, photographer Charlie Darnell got this shot of the mantle with amaryllis.
The Oaks Castle has a mantle that is both deep and wide, so it takes a lot of flowers to decorate it. The photography is by Waldorf Photographic Art:
As you can see, there are lots of ways to add flowers to a fireplace mantle. Which one do you like best?
