Alli and Jon: Apple Green and Duet Dinner at Larkin's Caberet Room

Alli grew up in Easley.  Jon is from Virginia.  They met in Clemson.  They got married in Easley and had their reception in Greenville.

You got all that?  Good.

Alli contacted B&R Events with plenty of time in advance.  She was putting a lot of attention into the details of her reception, and wanted a team that could take care of the details and refer super star vendors.  After a great meeting with Alli and her mother Ann, they booked B&R Events for the big day.  We got to meet Jon and he was a bunch of fun!  We knew that we were going to have a great time with them.
Easley First Baptist requires that you use their director for a ceremony.  We went to the rehearsal and got to meet the entire bridal party and got to kick back.  Alli and Jon gave us all of the goodies for the reception and bid us adieu.

The next day was hot, but perfect to go with Alli and Jon's green, ivory, and peach color scheme.  Eastside Limo provided transportation for their crew to get from downtown to Easley. 

Kismet Photography promptly started photos and captured all the details.  Watching Emily and Curtis work is like watching a well oiled machine.  We love working with them, and they were even kind enough to bring personalized bottles filled with water for the bridal party. 

Debbie began set up at Larkin's Caberet Room while I went to the church to take check in on Alli and Jon.  I sprinkled petals, used fashion tape, made sure groomsmen were hydrated, and waited for the church director to get there.  I made sure Alli and Jon and their parents were ready and then I went back to Larkins to assist Debbie.

Everything was looking lovely at Larkins.  Alli's hardwork of creating chalboard table numbers and wine cork place card with Lotto ticket favors were all being displayed.  The favors were absolutely awesome- a scratch-off ticket from SC and a scratch-off ticket from VA with a 2011 penny in a little vellum envelope with a sticker that read, "Lucky in Love". 

A dear friend of Alli's family made their cake.  Twigs brought lovely centerpieces featuring ivory hydrangea, peach roses, and matching apple green greenery.  Alli and Jon hired a caracuteurist to draw portraits of their guests.  The bridal party arrived and we lined them up so Ric Larson with Life of the Party could announce them in.  Alli and Jon treated their guests to a duet plated dinner of filet mignon and rosemary chicken.  It was nice, because they actually seated us amongst their guests (this is unusual) and their guests were going on and on about how it was the best meal they have ever had at a wedding.

Ric did a great job of reading Alli and Jon's crowd and kept the dance floor full. 

At the end of the night, we lined up their guests for a sparkler send off and Alli and Jon got away in a horse drawn carriage.

Congratulations Alli and Jon!
