When Anna came to us, she was no stranger. We had done her sister’s wedding several years ago and her mother is our go to makeup person. So, I was really excited to do her wedding. We decided on the Huguenot Loft in downtown Greenville, SC for both their ceremony and reception. Anna knew the colors she wanted were navy, tangerines and ivory. She loved the look of natural bark and curly willow. So we ran with a theme of simple woodsy elegance. Linens were ivory with ivory overlays embroidered with tiny leaves. Bark containers were used for centerpieces and a show stopping arch was built for the ceremony of tree limbs and grape vine, loaded with hydrangea blooms, orange roses, white roses and calla lilies. This was moved to surround the cake during the reception. There was also a huge J, their initial, made of moss and decorated with roses that hung on the wall.For the menu, we did a buffet with an around the world theme built around the bride and groom’s favorite foods. There was an Italian pasta station, Mexican quesadilla station along with American garlic mash potatoes with all the fixings and the best mac and cheese. There were also carving stations of grilled medallions of beef and roasted turkey. All this along with a beautiful wedding cake meant no one went away hungry.
I love those little moments of the reception that make it very personal to the couple. A sweet moment during this reception occurred when the bride surprised her dad with a small birthday cake and had everyone sing happy birthday to him.So now I will be quite and just show you just how beautiful this wedding was.
