There are some people out there who say that a couple’s wedding day is purely about the bride and groom. While we don’t 100% disagree with this, we also have seen so many wedding days where this simply isn’t true. Liz + Nick got married on August 29, 2015 at the Old Cigar Warehouse, and their big day was the perfect example of how important family is to many of the couples that celebrate with us in Downtown, Greenville.
Opening the venue that day was different. There was an energy in the space as soon as the family, excuse me – team, walked in the space. All hands were on deck doing everything to get the space ready for the very special ceremony and reception that were set to take place later that day. Aunts, uncles, groomsmen, brothers and other family friends were all there to help Nick set out decor while his bride relaxed with her bridesmaids. It was quite a sight to see as all of these people worked so effortlessly together, and the space looked absolutely stunning as a result.
Our groom, Nick, proved to be very crafty – he made and put together most of the décor for their nuptials that day, and his family was sure to place all with care showing off his hard work for his lovely wife-to-be! Like this Escort Card display – how creative is this! – just one of the finer details this couple put together for their big celebration (see tables cape below- truly beautiful).
Once all of the décor and final touches were in place, family and friends began filling the seats in our main hall for the ceremony. Their ceremony arch was adorned with fresh-looking, beautiful arrangements while their bridesmaids’ bouquets and groomsmen’s boutonnieres were equally as stunning, all provided by Barrett’s Flowers. It was the the perfect nod to the end of the summer months.
Their ceremony was heartfelt, energetic, and filled with close friends and family excited to welcome both of these people into their respective families. With not a seat left in the house, it was truly a beautiful sight to see. And who doesn’t love watching the cutest flower girl and ring bearer walk down the isle!? No one… It was a precious moment captured by David + Kristine Photography, as were all of the photos from their ceremony and reception that day!
After the I do’s, this couple and their new families were ready to celebrate! Their evening was filled with delicious food provided by the incredible team at Holmes Catering while drinks were provided by in-house beverage provider, Liquid Catering. All eyes were on the newlyweds as various guests made toasts exclaiming their happiness and fond memories of this newlywed couple. From the outside, it certainly felt like one, big happy family!
Before too long, Liz + Nick cut their gorgeous Couture Cakes wedding cake where Liz made sure Nick got a taste of their delicious dessert – one of our favorite pictures captured from the night! Entertainment for the reception was provided by Shutterbooth and Jumping Jukebox, who had guests on the dance floor rocking out to the couple’s favorite songs before sending them off with a classic bubble exit. It was truly a wonderful night, and we loved being able to celebrate the newlywed couple with their family and friends!
Congratulations, Liz + Nick! Cheers to a lifetime of happiness together!
