I have this idea in my mind for our wedding reception centerpieces and would like to know if it is too simple for a wedding. My fiance and I have been in a mostly long distance relationship (he’s abroad). So, as you can imagine, the phone has played a major role in keeping us together. He is a romantic and over the years has sent me love quotes that I’ve woken up to every single morning. In addition, we have taken several trips together to meet and spend time together. So, I was thinking about tieing all these unique and special aspects of our relationship together in a photoframe centerpiece like the picture below. They will be double sided and each one will have a picture of us in a city that we’ve visited and the name of the city, say Paris, and a quote he sent me on the other side.
We are getting married at a historic house (see picture below), so I thought that this might work and not look too simple. We would have 4 votive candles around each phtotoframe to tie the look together. What do you all think? Thank you in advance.

I think its a great idea!<br />I did something similar, for table 1 I put pictures of me at the age of one and my husband at the age of one, for table 2; age 2 and so one. I think doing something like that (and what you are doing) is a great idea because it promoted mingling. “Oh I want to see what they put over at table 10!” It worked really well for us, especially since our wedding day was the first day our families got together (we were long distance as well).

Today12345: I think you’ve got a cute and very personal idea, but I can’t help but think that your stunning venue needs something taller on the tables or it will look too minimalist, and look unfinished. Maybe you can use this idea and find a way to tie in something taller that will help bring in those gorgeous high ceilings?

Today12345: I think it’s a good idea. I would use an odd number of candles though- 3 or 5.
Maybe consider rasing the pictures up on something- a box, a stack of books, a mirrored box, and acrylic stand.

Thank you all so much for all your responses; I took them in and ran with them. I am thinking about elevating the double-sided photo frames above by glueing candlestick holders with brass finish to the bottom of the frames (see candlestick holder below). The brass finish will compliment my gold and brown color theme well. Then, I will surround the elevated pictureframe with 3 small vovite candles. What do you think?
NB: My venue has changed: I am now using a ballroom; please see picture below.
