Displaying photos at your wedding is a wonderful way to honor the past while celebrating your future, and it makes for great for great décor too! The best part, you can easily display your photos in DIY projects that fit your wedding theme! For instance, if you are having a rustic themed wedding, pin photos to twine. Going the vintage route, frame black and white photos of past generations. Want something off the beaten path? Wear your photos around your neck in a beautiful locket.


We have seen so many amazing photos series over the years at the Canoe Club Ballroom. We've seen photos used as décor, favors, escort cards and even floral arraignment enhancements. At the end of the day a photo series tells a story of your relationship and paints your guests a clearer picture of how you two met, fell in love, and got engaged! To inspire your photo displays we have found some awesome ways to display your photos!


Photo Gallery 

For a twist on the traditional photo wall, create an oversized frame with a vibrant background to display black and white photos.




Gather a collection of photos of the two of you and display them in a window frame for your special day!




Honor and pay respect to your family members by donning their photographs in a vintage locket or pocket watch, on your wedding day!



Collect old photos of your friends and family and print them onto midweight card stock to be table assignments!




Take your snapshots from your Instagram feed to a new level and use them as escort cards!



Wear all your favorite photos in a beautiful charm bracelet on your wedding day!

Wedding Date ~ October 1, 2017

Wedding Colors ~ Ivory & Black 

Lindsay & Christopher were married on a beautiful evening in October. The two were tied the knot at a local church, then celebrated their union with us in a romantic wedding reception in our ballroom. The ballroom was elegantly decorated with classic hues ivory and black, with hints of beautiful blush florals and greenery scattered throughout! 

"I cannot say enough about Stacy and Jill for everything they did to make my daughter's wedding day a dream come true. From the very first meeting at their Open House to a few days before the wedding when we dropped off all the essentials they went above and BEYOND!! They were very calming and reassuring and knew exactly what to say and do. Always prompt responses to calls, texts or emails. The Canoe Club Ballroom is the place to have your wedding reception. I give it a MILLION stars!!!Thank you again for everything!! It was wonderful!!! Love you ladies!!!"

As the days get shorter and the nights cooler, we’re finding fall wedding inspiration that will make you wish for plaid scarves and candlelit kisses. Here at the Canoe Club Ballroom, we are lucky to be located in a beautiful natural setting, surrounded by fall foliage that is absolutely stunning! Fall might just be our favorite season, and there is a lot of reason why! The colorful leaves, the tasteful treats, and beautiful jewel toned florals that are just too pretty not to love! Even when the temperature drops we still offer outdoor ceremony’s, and amazing photo opportunities with the sun setting in the background! This time of year it’s all about incorporating dreamy accents like moody blooms, creative cocktails, and metallic details. Plan the perfect fall wedding with these cozy fall wedding ideas!


Pumpkin Aisle Markers

Line your aisle with a variety of different pumpkins, it’s a wonderful alternative to flowers and it’s perfect for the season. 



Menus Accented with Leaves

A great way to add autumn foliage color, is to tie menus with ribbon to accent the colorful leaves.


Dusty Petals

This dusty pink bouquet full of moody blooms is simply stunning and perfect for a fall celebration!

Plaid Details 

We love all things fall, especially plaid! Incorporate navy and white plaid napkins to your perfect wedding tablescape.


Pie Station 

Offer an assortment of flavors (think apple, pumpkin and fresh berries), doing so in all different shapes and sizes definitely takes your pie station to the next level.


Cozy Details 


Though you’re bound to have beautiful photos during a fall wedding, your bridal party may get a bit chilly during those photos outdoors. So, think about plaid scarves that can double as bridesmaids gifts.

Wedding Date ~ September 1, 2017

Colors  ~ Navy & Pink


"I can't even truly describe how amazing our experience was with CCB for our September 1st wedding. Stacey and Jill are superheroes! From the very first time we met both these ladies their passion for this industry and to be there not only in a business sense but personal level was obvious. We could send an email with either 1 or 100 questions and we would get a reply to every single one. When our wedding day came I was relaxed, which doesn't happen, knowing that everything at the venue was being taken care of. Also, our last meeting before the big day we went through the whole set up and they wanted to know how everything should look and make sure we had all questions answered. Once arriving at the venue from the first look we were so happy to see not only Stacey and Jill but all of the CCB staff. Anything needed prior to the ceremony was taken care of and they did an amazing job making sure no guests saw us prior to the ceremony which was a request. The whole day flew by, but was absolutely what we pictured/wanted thanks to the CCB. Our guests are still talking about how amazing/gorgeous the venue was and how much fun they had. 

I will strongly and highly recommend the CCB to anyone that will be looking for a wedding venue."


~ We would like to thank Nancy & Sean for sharring their speical day with us at the CCB! We are so happy to hear they had a wonderful experience! Best Wishes from all of us at the CCB!!
