Baby it’s Cold Outside | Our Winter Weddings

Winter was an exciting season for us at The Old Cigar Warehouse! Even though it was cold outside our couples warmed everyone’s hearts! We are excited to share all of our Winter Weddings to show you our breath-taking brides and handsome grooms. So enjoy these highlights. We even have a true Winter Wonderland Wedding!

January 

January was HUGE! We could not have imagined a better way to ring in the new year than with Back-to-Back weddings! This month was amazing and definitely exceeded all our hopes and dreams! 

Molly + Brian

On New Years Day, The Old Cigar Warehouse was transformed into an elegant winter wonderland in celebration of Molly and Brian. Throughout the day this couple beamed with happiness and excitement! They had a beautiful intimate ceremony surrounded by their close family and friends. This couple began 2016 with a grand celebration and you can view highlights from their wedding day below!

Cheers to Molly and Brian!

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!

These high school sweethearts tied the knot over at Daniel Memorial Chapel at Furman University, then made the trip over to The Old Cigar Warehouse to celebrate with us! They spent the rest of their celebration enjoying time socializing and dancing with family and friends! Their beautiful January wedding was the perfect finale to their dating and engaged lives, and an inspiring beginning to their life together as husband and wife!

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!
