The Art of the Room Flip

Hey everyone!

After years of experience in the wedding industry, we've become experts at a few things. One of them is the Room Flip! {For those of you who don't know, this is what happens when the ceremony and reception are in the same space but you need them to look entirely different} During the cocktail hour, as guests are enjoying drinks, hors d'ouerves, and conversation, we are working our tails off to completely transform the ceremony space into a new and even more fabulous reception design!

Sarah & Danny's May wedding at Pratt Place Barn required a Room Flip. Here is the beautiful before and after....

For Sarah & Danny, we were able to transform Pratt Place Barn from one gorgeous design into another in just 40 minutes with a team of just 8 ladies and one phenomenal lighting technician, Steve Wilhelm.

We accomplished another fabulous room flip in July for Ashley & Heath's wedding in the Great Hall at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Here is their gorgeous before and after...

For Ashley & Heath, we moved mountains to accomplish this transformation in just 30 minutes with a small army of people! It took approximately 30 people to turn this space over in this very short window of time.

And most recently, we flipped the Clinton Presidential Library's great hall for Chris & Erika just 2 weeks ago. I don't yet have professional images of this wedding, but here is the before an after taken by Finishing Touch...

For Erika & Chris's stunning transformation, we only needed 30 minutes! With a team of 4 Finishing Touch Coordinators and 15-20 Clinton Library staff members it was a smooth and speedy Room Flip.

We've got it down to a science! If you're considering using the same room for your ceremony & reception and have no idea how to make it work, call us today to schedule a free consultation! 479.414.4136
