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!
