Reception Line- Bridal Dish Preferred Photographer

The Bridal Dish is an amazing service for newly engaged couples who are planning their wedding. When you go to the Bridal Dish you will be able to find the best wedding venders in Hampton Roads. The staff will help you through the process and help you find everything that is right for you.

One of my favorite things about the Bridal Dish is the Reception Line.

What is the Reception Line you ask?

It’s amazing that’s what!

It’s a traveling bridal show. There’s nothing else like it in the Hampton Roads area. As a bride and/ or groom you’ll be able to travel on a tour bus from venue to venue. At each venue you’ll find Bridal Dish preferred venders who have decorated each venue as if it were a real wedding.

This time around was a little different. The Reception Line actually crashed a REAL wedding. Tasha and Ryan approached the Bridal Dish with the idea of having the Reception Line crash their wedding. At first they were regarding as being “crazy”. But after a little thought, it turned out to be an amazing idea.

Dragon Studio was lucky enough to be the exclusive photographer for the Reception Line as well as Tasha and Ryan’s wedding. The whole day was absolutely stunning. Each venue looked amazing!

Please enjoy this little preview from the entire Reception Line. To see the full gallery just click the link at the bottom of the page. You’ll also find a complete list of all the venders from the Reception Line.
