The past week has been quite hectic for us here at the Old Cigar Warehouse. Not that we’re complaining, who doesn’t love keeping busy? We recently attended the June 2013 Wedding Festivals show last Thursday at the TD Convention Center. It was our second show there and this time we had our very first intern to help out, Sarah! For any other vendors that usually have a booth at Wedding Festivals, you know it was fun to network with others and meet new couples. We also tested out several new marketing materials…hopefully they did the trick!
Along with preparing for Wedding Festivals last week, we were also getting ready for our first Bridal Open House that debuted this past Sunday. While we have yet to host an official grand opening, this open house was specifically for current and any prospective couples looking to get married or have their reception in the hall. Brides, grooms, and their families came to tour the space as well as chat with a handful of featured wedding vendors about their services. Despite the pouring rain Greenville endured that day, we still had a great turn out!
We plan to host an open house each quarter in hopes of giving everyone a chance to see our venue with an added oomph of vendor information. All of our vendor friends will be given a chance to be featured too! Each open house will be showcase a new round of vendor favorites. On Sunday, though, we featured:
ABC Rentals and Amusements – Event Rentals
Kathy and Company – Cakes
Liquid Catering – Bar Services
Muse 10 Photography – Photography (the following photos are some of his great shots of the event!)
Renee Burroughs Design – Florist
Tim Holmes Catering – Catering
We’re looking forward to more unique events and of course, weddings! One lovely couple in particular is having both their rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception here this weekend. Going to be gorgeous!
