If you already caught Part 1 of Laurel + Wes’ gorgeous Hummingbird Nest Ranch wedding, you’re ready to dive right into Part 2 with us – their fun + colorful reception filled with tons of adorable details that nod to their love of running :)
The genius behind the design, the team at Amorology tells us, Highlighting their favorite pastime, shoelaces were woven into the day with custom table numbers and as escort cards, which were displayed in front of an artistic backdrop reading “I run to you”. Once guests were at their tables, they found their names written in beautiful calligraphy on ceramic grey plates, surrounded by gold-rimmed glassware and dainty blush goblets. Metallic flatware and candle votives paired perfectly with bright, geometric linens and floral centerpieces bursting with color.
And we just love all the ways Brandon Kidd Photography captured those details below!
Are these seriously not the greatest escort cards ever?! So perfect for two talented runners!
Guests stayed hydrated with signature cocktails by Loteria Grill, warming up with jalapeño heart racers and cooling down with mint and cucumber coolers.
At the dessert display, everyone was reminded to pace themselves when choosing what to devour, from 10k carrot cakes to stretch-it-out s’mores by Cake Monkey Bakery.

After a vibrant night full of celebrating love and dancing under the stars, loved ones left with personalized running playlists that read “You make my heart race”.
