Our deck was my favorite part of the whole reception, the lights and hanging flowers created such a cool atmosphere. I didn't take pictures until really late at night so they came out a little grainy but in real life it was gorgeous.
We made cafe lights using this tutorial from Say Yes. We ordered really cheap ping-pong balls in bulk from Amazon and used 15 strands of LED lights that we already had. My dad and brother, the groom, built a temporary structure on our deck to hang the lights from.
