We are incredibly grateful to the amazing clients we were able to experience this Summer! We could have never imagined a better way to spend our Summer nights than celebrating our wonderful couples!

June

Wow! June was fantastic! We were jam pack the first week and weekend with weddings. There was just something about our June couples that made them unforgettable! Even though southern heat and the summer rain we were able to witness some of the most beautiful love stories. We sincerely thank all of our June couples for allowing us to be a part of your special day!

Emma + Elliot

Emma and Elliot had a beautiful day with us! This couple was definitely the epitome of perfection! From the first meeting they were all giggles and smiles. By the end of our time with them we felt like a part of the family! We loved going through this experience with this couple and were so excited to be there with them on their big day!

These Clemson fans were filled with excitement the entire evening from the first look to the send off! Emma and Elliot let their personalities truly shine through with personal touches throughout the night.  We LOVED the cupcake bar and the light, airy table settings.  The beautiful blush colors with the bright greens played off the natural beauty of The Old Cigar Warehouse. They surprised everyone with a one-of-kind choreographed dance that was spectacular! For more on this wedding check out their Wedding video!

Congratulations to the happy couple, we can’t wait to see what life has in store for you both!

Tiffany + Michael

Tiffany and Michael’s wedding was a great party! We knew from the first meeting that this wedding was definitely going to be a special one! One of our favorite moments was their first look!

On their wedding day, Tiffany was the definition of beauty! Her infectious laughter and excitement to see Michael made getting ready a fun experience. The details of their day were breathtaking from the ceremony back drop to the reception decorations. We absolutely love the candles and the bold colors! Guests were so happy to dance the night away and celebrate the new marriage, and the newlyweds were just thrilled to be finally married! Check out their amazing Wedding video!

Emily + Jay

Emily and Jay were such a sweet couple! The love between this couple (and all of the guests in attendance!) was so obvious, which made the day that much sweeter.  Emily absolutely lit up the room with her bridal beauty and Jay couldn’t keep his eyes off his new bride!

This wedding was the perfect example of simple elegance! The decorations for the reception were unbelievable! The flowers definitely made the room along with the handwritten chalkboard signs that provided the intricate details that really added something extra. The couples introduction down our staircase was a grand entrance! With family and friends cheering on the couple they took to the floor for their first dance and later were sent off through a tunnel of bubbles!

Congratulations to the lovely bride and groom!

Audrey + Vince

Audrey and Vince were amazing to work with! They were an absolute joy to work with and we are honored that they choose to share their day with us! One of our favorite moments was getting to walk Audrey and her father up to the staircase for her fairytale entrance. Her and her father were all smiles and were both so excited for the ceremony!

This wedding was picture perfect! Audrey and Vince embraced light and pastels in their wedding decor choices, which turned out to be appropriate because this couple brought an inexplicable light to our venue on their special day.  The two were so clearly in love that it made us all smile right along with them!

Congratulations Audrey and Vince! Your day was beautiful, just like the two of you!

Elizabeth and Chad definitely had a memorable wedding! This couple had one of the most personalized weddings. After a intimate ceremony, the couple had the reception transform the venue into an arcade. Yes, an arcade! There was Billards, PacMan, Dance Dance Revolution and more!

Anna + James

Anna and James were absolutely a dream to work with! Like with most couples, they were all smiles throughout the planning process. This wedding was so special and the couple put a lot of time into making sure there were some German details for James (like the delicious Croquembouche!) Yum!

To fit the theme of merging lives and cultures the couple had a trendy guests book globe that we loved! Such a cool and fun idea! They also did a first look where Anna actually turned around to James versus the tradition of the Bride walking up behind the Groom. It was so adorble (James had the biggest smile!)

The had a lovely ceremony and an exciting reception. This couple had an enthuastic crowd that danced all night! When it was time to jet off the guests gathered on the deck and created a tunnel of brightly colored ribbons for Anna and James to run through!

Congratulations Anna and James!

Casey + Neil

Planning from far away can be struggle sometimes but not for this couple! Casey and Neil were so much fun to work with. They are the type of people who you become instant friends with! From the First Look to the send off this couple was excited to the max. We were able to be apart of the getting ready process where the wedding party was having fun the second they walked into the space. Everyone was so overjoyed that Casey and Neil were finally tying the knot!

The rustic themed wedding was detailed to perfection from the Whiskey Barrels, pastel colors, and Casey’s amazing dress! We adored the handmade wood centerpieces made by the Father of the Bride! The ceremony was full of laughter and happy tears (which the bride prepared for with fun vintage handkerchiefs!) After the ceremony, the couple enjoyed a reception full of touching speeches, great music, cornhole, and a fun photo booth!

Cheers to the happy couple! Your wedding day will be one we never forget!

July

July was definitely full of fireworks! We had a ton of fun couples that let their spirited personalities show. In the middle of a very hot Summer, our couples stayed breathtakingly beautiful! These couples made our Summer nights memorable and fun!

Turner + Ben

Turner and Ben met in high school in their Industrial Tech class.  He was immediately taken with her.  The two became friends and ultimately ended up in the same building at Clemson! The two were friends for years before making it official, but we are certainly glad they finally did!  The two were long distance for a while Ben was training for the air force, so they were SO ready to get married!

It was an absolute joy to celebrate with Turner and Ben, and we know their friends and family would agree!

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Laura + Nevin

Laura and Nevin were one of the most fun-loving couple to ever walk though our doors. The two met in Shakespeare class at Virginia Tech.  After 8 years of dating, Nevin finally mustered the courage to ask Laura to marry him, to which she (of course) answered YES!

Throughout their beautiful event, the couple kept us laughing. This couple and their wedding was one we will never forget and will always love looking back on!

We absolutely adored the details that Laura worked so hard like keeping the colors true to the famous “Tiffany Blue.” One of our favorite moments was the exchanging of gifts! They did such an amazing job at picking the perfect gifts for one another. Once Laura entered the ceremony she took everyone breath away (especially Nevins!) After the ceremony guests danced the night away and cheered the couple on with glow sticks as they made their way to their happily ever after!

Congratulations Laura and Nevin! We hope you keep laughing together for years to come!

Jessica + Christopher

Jessica and Christopher had a one-of-kind wedding that reflected the essence of July 4th. It was truly beautiful and fun! They were married at the gorgeous Pretty Place Chapel and then headed to downtown to celebrate the rest of the night with us.

This couple was so easy to work with! Christopher was the first on site day of to help decorate and make Jessica’s vision come to life. They did a patriotic theme with red, white and blue that was whimsical and tasteful! We loved the combination!

For this reception only, guests had lots of entertainment from the DJ to the yard games on the deck including: Connect Four, Jenga, Cornhole, Dominos, and Bowling. So much fun! Once the couple arrived the celebration was in full swing! There was amazing food, delicious cake and great music! The couple had a fun glow stick send off that was picture perfect!

Congratulations Jessica and Christopher!

Kathryn + Phil

Kathryn and Phil’s wedding day was full of laughter! This couple not only blended families but also cultures (always so much fun!) After meeting in Clemson, this couple knew very quickly that they had found the one! When working with this couple, we found out that Kathryn loves making Phil laugh by doing silly country accents and he loves that she researches eveything! He will joke that she is never not an expert on a topic. Which came in handy while planning the wedding.

One of our favorite moments from their special day was being with Kathryn on the deck before her entrance. She was so excited to get down the aisle to phil that she just had to take a peek through our doors to see him! Such a sweet moment! They opted for the traditional no first look so needless to say they were beyond excited to see each other.

Their ceremony and reception was one for the books! Their guests were so supportive and fun! A couple of guests supplied everyone with laughter during the speeches (such a fun way to incorporate memories!) Once it was time to head to Mexcio for some fun in the sun the couples was sent off through a glowing pathway.

Congratulations Kathryn and Phil!

Laurie + Jody

Laurie and Jody’s wedding and reception was one of the prettiest weddings! They put so much effort into making sure everything flowed seamlessly and that the decorations were perfect. Their attention to detail shined on the special day and made them so easy to work with!

Laurie and Jody looked like they could be on the cover of any magazine! Laurie was breathtaking and her girls looked goregous in blue. Joday and the groomsmen looked dashing in their formal black and bow ties.

Their ceremony was absolutely beautiful and full of laughter and happy tears! After the ceremony, guests joined the couple in sharing a tasty dinnerin our cellar. During dinner, the couple showed their love story through a fun video!

Congratulations Laurie and Jody!

August

August is such a beautiful time in Greenville, so we see a lot of weddings come through during this time of the year! Lucky for us, the couples we worked with in the month of August were so wonderful that they turned our busy season into one of our favorite seasons of the year! These weddings were a wonderful way to wind down the Summer and jump into Fall.

Caitlin + Caleb

Caitlin and Caleb are one of those couples who truly inspire us all.  Charles is a Marine who was stationed in Camp Pendleton, CA while Caitlin was living in the city next door.  While in California, they had a connection after realizing they had actually met before in Simpsonville, SC in 2012.  It was clearly fate that brought the two back together after years, and on the other side of the country for that matter!

Caitlin and Caleb’ wedding was the perfect representation of their relationship and their personalities. The fun-loving, laid back couple had a marvelous time on the dance floor with their family and friends around and smiled the whole night through!

Congratulations to the happy couple! We had a great time celebrating with you!

Megan + Blake

Megan and Blake actually met before they could from complete sentences at Megan’s second birthday party.  Freshman year of high school the two of them began spending some serious time together (he was a football player, she was a cheerleader), but ultimately decided to go their separate ways during college.

Megan and Blake had an absolutely beautiful wedding and reception with us! The couple opted out of the first look (instead they had a personal rendezvous behind a door) to savor the grand entrance moment. Which made for one of our top wedding moments! When Blake saw Megan for the first time we were all in tears at how much he loved her! This wedding was also one of the most personalized weddings we have had that really showcased the couples relationship! At the end of the night, the two lovebirds made their way to their getaway car through a tunnel of ribbons!

Congratulations Megan and Blake!

Keri + Nick

Keri and Nick’s wedding completely encompassed the phrase “Southern Charm.” If you met Keri you would understand that she is the definition of Southern Charm. This couple swept us off our feet with how much they enjoyed each other. They were constantly smiling and giggling! This was most definitely present on their special day!

This couple was ALL laughter and fun! Whether Keri was getting ready or taking pictures she was always smiling ear-to-ear and completely lit up the venue! Nick was just as excited to see and be married to Keri. One of our favorite moments from their wedding was their exchange of Love Letters! How sweet!

Accompanied by their family and friends, Keri and Nick danced the night away before leaving on their honeymoon to Jamaica! What a beautiful, glamorous, and special night for the newlyweds and all of the guests!

Cheers to the happy couple! Thank you for letting us help make your day special!

Springing Forward | Our Spring Weddings

There is nothing better than Greenville in Spring!  Our Spring couples had the perfect combinations of beautiful weather, bright colors, gorgeous flowers, and delicious food! Take a look at all of the wonderful wedding celebrations that took place in The Old Cigar Warehouse during the months of April and May!

April

With eight different weddings, April was absolutely FILLED with breathtaking moments from the couples, to the decorations, to the love stories!  Here is a peek at each one of their special days and the sensational couples behind them!

Diane + Jeremy

We love it when couples let their personalities shine through their wedding.  Diane and Jeremy absolutely rocked their wedding and embraced their funky-fun styles throughout the day.  They had an intimate first look in the courtyard and then moved into a touching ceremony complete with love letters!

The cool blue colors that the couple chose were perfect for the lovely April day!  We absolutely loved all of the personal touches that Diane and Jeremy included in the day, like hand painted tile table numbers. Family and friends clearly adored the couple and enjoyed celebrating with dancing, drinks, and food all night long.

Congratulations Diane and Jeremy!

Jasmine + Colin

Jasmine and Colin were such a fun couple! This couple planned from afar, which normally presents some type of extra stress but definitely not with this bride. Jasmine was so organized and on top of everything!

When they met, Jasmine handed Colin her first business card and told him to call her, which he did.  The rest is history!

Right before walking down the aisle Jasmine was laughing and cracking jokes, literally zero nerves.  Colin, a military man, was clearly very taken with his beautiful bride.  For this couple, the day was truly all about each other!

Congratulations Jasmine and Colin!

Anna Claire + Jacob

Anna Claire and Jacob’s day was not only wildly unique, but also perfect in every way.  A couple from Clemson University that is heavily involved in campus and church activities, Anna Claire and Jacob had a traditional wedding with a huge turnout! Friends and family from all over (even Cuba!) came to celebrate the love that radiates from this beautiful couple.

The couple took time before their ceremony to have a first look, and made sure to spend some time with their fun-loving wedding party before the ceremony!  The ceremony itself (which was officiated by two friends) was filled with love, emotion, personality, and fun!

After plenty of food, the couple danced the night away with loved ones close by! The grand exit (like the rest of the night) was unique in that the couple sported watching baseball shirts entitled “Mrs.” and “Mr.”

Congratulations to the happy couple! Click here to read Anna Clare and Jacob’s full feature blog!

It was truly an unbelievable day for two extraordinary people and the love they share.  Congratulations, Lindsey and Logan! We are so excited for you both as you enter into this next phase of life together. To read Lindsey and Logan’s full feature blog, click here!

In May, Spring was definitely in full swing at The Old Cigar Warehouse!

We even wrapped up the end of the month with one of the most unique celebrations that highlights sharing your fairy tale with family!

We absolutely love unique weddings here at The Old Cigar Warehouse, and the Robinson twins certainly fit that category! It was a night with double the love, and double the fun! The beautiful, bright blue reflected the couples’ personalities perfectly! The event was perfectly designed to seamless represent both couples.

Allison and Alexis looked absolutely stunning! These sisters were so much fun to work with and be around on their special day. There was never a moment where these beautiful ladies were not smiling from ear-to-ear! Their grooms, Alfred and Evan were just as excited as they were getting ready. The ceremony was definitely one full of laughter and love. The couples started out the reception with an awesome choreographed first dance! This crowd really knew how to let loose and have fun! We had a blast watching them all dance the night away!

Congratulations Allison and Alfred! Cheers Alexis and Evan!

Kaylin + Steven

Snow is a rare occurrence here in Greenville, but Kaylin and Steven were lucky enough to have a winter wonderland outside the day of their wedding!

This fun-loving couple opted out of the first look, but exchanged love letters before the ceremony.  In front of all of their family and friends, Kaylin and Steven tied knot! Their ceremony was full of laughter and joy! Then the wedding party along with the Bride and Groom danced the night away!

When it was time to head out, the couple’s family and friends lined the walkway and ushered the two lovebirds into their getaway car via a tunnel of bubbles!

What a fun night! Congratulations Kaylin and Steven!

February

In February, Valentine’s Day is on everyone’s mind, but this romantic holiday is even more special for us here at The Old Cigar Warehouse.  When it comes to all things love and weddings, we can’t hold back our excitement! We just love love!

We had four incredibly special couples come through our venue in February and we definitely have crushes on all of them! Take a look back at their special days with us!

Amanda + Zach

To kick our month off we were able to witness Amanda and Zach celebrate their love in front of all their family and friends! This couple lit up the room with their beautiful smiles and their love for one another! Their ceremony was intimate and there were definitely happy tears from not just the bride and groom.  The couple and their guests danced the away! The wedding was supported by an A-team of vendors!

Bethany + TJ

After a long distance relationship followed by months planning their perfect day, Bethany and TJ tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony at the Old Cigar Warehouse.

Bethany began her day surrounded by love with her friends and family by her side as she prepared to walk down the aisle.  Bethany and her father shared an emotional first look, and then the photo shoots commenced!

The couple opted for the traditional route of waiting to see each other until Bethany walked down the aisle, but that didn’t stop them from enjoying a much-needed meetup around a wall to calm the nerves but preserve the tradition.  They exchanged presents, prayed over each other and their marriage, and went their separate ways to prepare for the ceremony!

After a beautiful ceremony, Bethany and TJ jumped right into the first dance, and then a touching moment between Bethany and her father, and TJ and his mother.

Bethany + TJ’s magical day ended with one last celebratory moment surrounded by family and friends before their romantic send off!

Alysha + Zach

Alysha and Zach’s big day was the perfect representation and celebration of their relationship. The love between the happy couple and the love of their wonderful family and friends who were so eager to celebrate the happy couple was inspiring and touching.

The two met in small group and immediately bonded over their love of Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.  To propose, Zach reenacted the couple’s first date! How cute!

After a night full of dancing, dining, and yes, Star Wars, the happy couple rode away to their own happily ever after in a romantic horse-drawn carriage.

Congratulations Alysha and Zach!

Kaitlyn + Andrew

Kaitlyn and Andrew inspired us all on their beautiful day! Planning from afar was a piece of cake for these two with the love and support of their family members. Hailing from Ohio the colors tastefully represented the grooms love for the Buckeyes adding just another personal touch to their celebration. Their incredible family and friends enjoyed a delicious dinner, danced the night away, and the bride was surprised by a special visit from Clemson Tiger!

At the end of the night after their February, Fairytale wedding, the happy couple headed out into their own happily ever after!

Congratulations Kaitlyn and Andrew!

Mary + Reece

Mary and Reece’s wedding encapsulated pure, elegant, romance.  From the stunning red roses the bride carried down the aisle, to the look on the groom’s face when he first laid eyes on his wife-to-be, love was in the air all night long

Mary and Reece met in high school and dated on and off until they realized in college that they were meant to be!

The couple’s family and friends were so excited to help Mary and Reece celebrate tying the knot! After a night full of good food, loving friends, and fun dancing, the couple made their exit  beneath a hundred red and white pom-poms and were whisked away in a romantic horse-drawn carriage!

What a night! Congratulations Mary and Reece!

Jessica + William

Jessica and William were an inspiration to all of us! This pair of lovebirds are also avid crossfit fans. The two of them support each other in the gym and in life!  Their whimsical wedding was a perfect representation of their love for one another. While getting ready for the day both Jessica and William enjoyed time laughing with their wedding! The bride looked absolutely breath-taking as she walked down the aisle toward her now husband. Their ceremony was full of happy tears and laughter! This couple danced the night away with their loved ones and then jetted off to a fun Honeymoon!

Ashley + Chris

Ashley and Chris are one of those couples that leave their mark on everyone they come into contact with.  Theirs was one of those weddings that you could honesty feel the love in the room.  Ashley and Chris were full of unconditional love for one another and had the most supportive friends and family.

Every detail of their wedding reflected the couple’s love for one another.  Their love story from both perspectives was framed and placed as a centerpiece, and their favorite things about one another were framed and displayed for everyone to see.

Congratulations Ashley and Chris!

Niki + Colby

To close out our Winter weddings, we celebrated with Niki and Colby! This couple has an intimate first look in our courtyard that was just adorable! This wedding was the perfect transition to spring with not only the bright smiles, but the bright colors. Along with their family and friends, we watched the couple express their vows to each other and dance together as husband and wife for the first time. After an evening of delicious food, fun music, and yummy deserts the couple left The Old Cigar Warehouse through a tunnel of bubbles and cheering guests!

Congratulations Niki and Colby! We are so excited for you two!

Wedding Trends | Brunch Reception

Whether you’re an early bird who wants to have a morning wedding or someone who is a firm believer that breakfast food is the best kind of food, the 2016 Brunch Reception wedding trend is for you!

Food

The possibilities on what to serve as the main dishes for your brunch reception are endless! Utilizing a buffet (or build your own biscuit station or cereal bar) can give your guests the opportunity to try everything that your reception has to offer. But you can also have a plated receptions well! Allow your guests choose which omelette, crepe, waffle, or pancakes ingredients and toppings they would prefer and have waiters serve them at their table for an elegant feel.
