Julie and Adam: Hot Pink Whimsy at St. Pauls and the Wyche Pavilion

Julie and Adam are such a fun couple.  Julie knew that she wanted to use B&R Events after we worked with her bridesmaid Megan
Julie wanted her wedding to be fun and whimsical.  She chose a really fantastic color scheme; fuschia, orange, and black.  Unconventional for the November wedding date, but SO refreshing (we LOVE pink).  Julie's bridemaid's wore black gowns with chunky black and white jewelry and fuschia shoes and Reagan, the flowergirl and Adam's daughter, wore a fuschia dress with a black sash.  Instead of a veil, Julie opted for a white and fuschia fascinator to complement her ballgown.
Their ceremony was at St. Paul's United Methodist Church on Main Street.  A trolley transported the bridal party and out of town guests.   Charlie Register snapped photos all around the church's unique campus and set up a photo booth for the reception.
The reception was at Larkin's on the River's Wyche Pavilion.  White and black table linens adorned the tables and Dahlia created different arrangements using pink stargazer lilies, orange birds of paradise, and other bright and fun fuschia and orange blooms.  And the topsy-turvy cake that Couture Cakes created?  So many guests oooo'd and aaahhhh'd over it.  The Party Machine DJ-ed and emceed and kept the dance floor full. 
After their sparkler send off, Julie and Adam were driven away by the Reedy River Rickshaw.

Alabaster Rose Sweetheart Table at Wedding Festivals

We decided to do a sweet little table for two for the tabletop display at the January Wedding Festivals.

Another simple but lovely concept: cascading linens, pearls, roses, ivory shells, and white dishes.


We love the idea of the bride and groom's monogram wreath hanging behind them.

We loved our alabaster rose sweetheart table.  We felt that it was a great addition to the table top area at Wedding Festivals.

Crystal Coral at Wedding Festivals

B&R Events loves participating in Wedding Festivals.  Our theme was rather simple: Crystal Coral. 
Our color palette was coral, white, and navy.  We up lit the back of our booth with a rose light.

We took cylinder vases, filled them with coral vase filler, manzanita branches, and movie star and polar star roses.  We used crystal garland for the bling and illustrated how you can incorporate a monogram on the vase.

Look at this fancy little guy!  With bling in the middle!


And to continue with the crystal theme - diamond shaped paper weights at each place setting as favors.
We used midnight and rose coral iridescent crushed linens.  It was just the perfect amount of sparkle.
The drink?  A blushing bride cocktail.  Champagne, grenadine, and peach schnapps.


Custom aisle runner leading up to our slide show and where the brides could register to win.

We had such a great time and got such positive feedback from Wedding Festivals!

And if you were there, let us know so we can send you a copy of our news letter and so you can use your $50 off coupon!

Chanel and Marcus: Sangria, Pearls, and Jazz at the Hyatt Regency





Chanel's sweet mother, Cynthia, contacted B&R Events to assist with Chanel and Marcus's big day. They were interested in our day of coordination package (the Marilyn) for their wedding day.

Marcus and Chanel chose the Hyatt Regency Greenville for their ceremony and reception.  They got married in the second floor atrium and had their reception in the Teal Suite.  Chanel chose sangria as the color for her big day- a moody purpley-pink created by David's Bridal.  Chanel also told Debbie (the "B" to the B&R Events) that she loved music "and all things jazzy".  SW Studios was able to capture all the moments leading up to the big "I dos". 

The ceremony was gorgeous with Marcus's aunt singing the Lord's Prayer (someone get the woman a recording deal!) and Marcus welling up during the vows.  The ceremony and reception music was styled by Sam and Dusty Brooks (Sam for the ceremony and his singing, Dusty to lead in the dancing).

Cynthia's dear friend created the centerpieces, and B&R Events went behind and added feathers, pearls, and signs with musical touches.  The bouquets, personal flowers, and the head table arrangement all had touches of white feathers and pearls as well.  The guests enjoyed a custom buffet that was absolutely scrumptious.  Couture Cakes of Greenville created their cake with a sangria colored bow that matched the wedding day decor.  The guests danced the night away, and Chanel and Marcus's precious baby girl, Morgan, even made an appearance before bed time.

Congratulations Chanel and Marcus!

Kelly and Andrew: Silver and Sparkle Winter Street at the Huguenot Loft

Kelly contacted B&R Events because she was planning her wedding from Michigan.  Kelly and Andrew both live in the great white north, but Kelly is originally from the Greenville-Spartanburg area.  Kelly knew that she could handle booking her vendors with her mother's guidance, but she wanted assistance with the design aspect of the the wedding.  B&R Events was happy to create a custom package for Kelly to make her wedding memorable.
Kelly chose the Huguenot Loft at the Peace Center for her 150 guest ceremony and reception.  B&R Events created a custom aisle design with petals and the aisle was lined with silver branches that were fastened with sheer ribbon and baby's breath. 



Kelly made her way down the aisle to Andy with her father by her side in Chuck All-Stars.  B&R Events had created a silver branch arch adorn with crystal garland for Kelly and Andy's ceremony.  
The ceremony was positively beautiful.  Lou, Kelly's dad's cousin, performed the ceremony.  Kelly and Andy's good friend did a Shel Silverstein reading. 
Kelly's bridesmaids wore gorgeous pewter gowns and carried black and ivory calla lilies and Kelly carried white hydrangea, white roses, and white anemone created by Dahlia a Florist



Kelly wanted a very wintry feel to her wedding.  We agreed that it would be wonderful to "bring the outside, in".  Kelly also mentioned that she wanted a dark and romantic feel.


Instead of overhead lighting, we went with white street lamps.  We wanted it to feel as though you stumbled upon an outdoor winter party.  The tables were dressed with pewter pintuck overlays and black wooden folding chairs.
B&R Events then worked with Dahlia for the centerpieces.  We built the base with vases, snow filler, branches, candles, bellani pods, and crystal garland.  Dahlia then came along and added snowy baby's breath, hydrangea, and carnation petals on the tables.  We also up lit the walls with soft white lighting and put candles in the windows.




Kelly and Andy danced to the music of Jumping Jukebox over their custom dance floor vinyl monogram.  Their guests enjoyed a buffet by Larkins on the River and a delicious cake created by a family friend.  eMedia, Kelly's dad's company, created three purple monogram wall hangings for the brick walls. 


Evan Laettner Photography caught all the special moments, including the bubble send off at the end of the night. 
Congratulations Kelly and Andy!
