Tammy and Rashaan: Horse and carriage at the Hyatt Regency



Congratulations Tammy and Rashaan!

Tammy called me on June 12th to see if B&R was available to coordinate her June 27th wedding. We usually do not have many free Saturdays during the summer, but it just so happened that our wedding that weekend was on a Sunday!

Tammy and Rashaan have been living in Ohio, but many of their guests are from the Greenville area. Tammy was referred to us by our good friend and peer, Amy Wood, who told Tammy that we were the ones to call since we "run a tight ship".
Tammy and Rashaan had a lovely afternoon ceremony at the Wyche Pavilion followed by a late lunch reception at the Hyatt Regency. Their guests boogied with Platinum Music Services and had cake from Couture Cakes. One of the most speical things about the day was Whispering Winds Carriage Company was able to do a "split ride". Tammy arrived to the pavilion with her father and Rashaan was able to see her for the first time on the carriage. Then at the end of their celebration Tammy and Rashaan were sent off on the carriage. What a sweet and fun summer day!

Melissa and Joey: Feathers and Fun at the Wyche Pavilion

Only one word can describe Melissa and Joey's wedding: WILD!

Melissa and Joey picked the Cliffs at Glassy Chapel to hold there ceremony and Larkins on the River's Wyche Pavilion for their reception. And since the couple has traveled almost EVERYWHERE, that was the theme for their big day. Melissa chose old world colors that consisted of varying shades of copper, chocolate, cream, and clover. She also chose an underlying theme of feathers, which was reflected in the bridesmaids' hair pieces and bouquets and Melissa's clover feather shoes!
There ceremony was officiated by Jerry Frye and Erin from Upstate Wedding Music was the solo violinist.
After the ceremony, the guests arrived to the pavilion and all the guests placecards were attached to a copper colored diecast plane. Melissa and Joey's initials were made into wreaths by Dahlia and hung in the entrance of the pavilion. Holly's Cakes constructed the cake to look like the fabric on Melissa's gown.
After a sit down dinner, Sam Brooks with Life of the Party got the party started and out came the WILD dance props! Feather boas, feathered hats, foam cowboy hats, light up tamborines, light up sunglasses, and blow up microphones were given to all the guests! No one was empty handed! Amy Wood set up a zebra print "photo booth" area where no one was shy.

At the end of the night, the guests were all sippin' on Firefly and lemonade and singing karaoke. What an awesome and fun night!
