Jennifer is an attorney.  Hunter is an engineer.  Jennifer's dad is my family dentist.  Jennifer's mom works in the office of her husband's practice.

Ya got that?  OK.

Jenny and Hunter got engaged shortly after Jenny and her mom had visited Wedding Festivals "for a friend".  Jenny and her mom were very complimentary of our booth and we were so happy to see a familiar couple of faces.  As soon as Jenny got engaged, she made the call to B&R Events.  


Jenny and Hunter were fairly flexible with their wedding date, as long as it did not conflict with Clemson foot ball and we were available.  They ended up choosing December 18th, one week before Christmas.  

Jenny chose a very pretty blue by Dessy called glacier.  This went stunningly with all the deep red and green that Grace Church had used for holiday decor. The 150+ year old church, formerly known as Downtown Baptist Church, was the perfect location to precede their Huguenot Loft reception.

Music was so important to Jenny's dad for the ceremony.  They had a string quartet, a pianist, and a soloist that sang "Ava Maria" before the processional.  

After the ceremony, Jenny and Hunter's guests sipped on hot cocoa and coffee from Carolina Coffee Roasters while they quickly finished photos.  They then led their guests with a marching jazz band to the Huguenot Loft for the reception. 

Granatas Catering created a delicious custom menu- tons of tasty canapes, tenderloin and mashed potatoes, salads, and a creme brule station. 

Blue, touches of copper and bronze, ivory,burgundy, natural wood, and deeeep green graced the Huguenot Lofts floors. We dressed the tables in a slate blue and accented them with burgundy crush taffeta runners and natural wood chivaris.  The windows were filled with poinsettias and hydrangea.  Dahlia created complimentary decor using hydrangea, seeded eucalyptus,pine, mums, dusty miller, juniper berries, cranberries, and angel vine, just to name a few elements.

The crowd enjoyed the band Current Invention, sipped on cocktails, and got jolly in the Shutterbooth photo booth.   Paper Star Pictures worked as a team to collect video and images of the evening's festivities
Granatas Catering also created the wedding cake. 
One word:  Funfetti. 
Oh yes they did.


At the end of the night, the band led everyone outside while they sang "Jingle Bells" and shook, well, jingle bells for Jenny and Hunter's horse drawn sleigh carriage.

Congratulations Jenny and Hunter!
