Burnin’ Love | Our Summer Weddings

Despite the heat, our summer couples had incredible weddings! Our Summer started with a bang and it did not slow down. 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!

congratulations Tiffany and Michael!

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 + Chad

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! Elizabeth and Chad’s wedding was one we will never forget!

Congratulations Elizabeth and Chad! You were wonderful to work with and we wish you two the very best!

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!

What a wonderful couple! Kaitlin and Garret met through a mutual friend who was absolutely INSISTENT that the two of them meet. The two hit it off and the rest is history!

Kaitlin and Garrett both had the most contagious smiles, which made the day fun for everybody in attendance! The couple’s day was so special and true to their personality.

Congratulations to the happy couple and thank you for letting us be a part of your big day!

Kerri + Andrew

After their wedding ceremony at Twigs Tempietto, Kerri, Andrew, the wedding party, and all of their guests made their way over to The Old Cigar Warehouse to celebrate their marriage!

The party was so much fun! The venue looked amazing with the couples creative color palette, especially the pop of color in the flowers! This was definitely a dancing crowd and we loved it! What a perfect night to celebrate such a special couple!
