Natacha and Victor: Peacock and Silver at Holy Trinity Anglican Church and the Hyatt Regency

 Can we talk about the two happiest, luckiest kids in the USA? 
That would be Natacha and Victor. 
Another gorgeous couple that attended the Hyatt Wedding Festivals.  After attending the show and seeing our booth, they set up their "Getting to Know You" session.
Then Natacha told me the great news- at the show, they won the Grand Prize!  That year, it was "the Hyatt Reception".  The couple won $3500 off their reception at the Hyatt.  That was all that they had booked, and Natacha already had her gorgeous one shoulder gown.
Natacha and Victor had met during school in Miami.  Victor went overseas to serve our country while Natacha continued with her studies.  When he got home, they came up to visit family in South Carolina, and decided to call it home for a while. 
Natacha told us that she loved bling, and wanted to use silver and navy with peacock feather accents.  They loved the idea of a church for the wedding, wanted to make sure that they had a plated dinner and open bar for their out of town guests, and wanted great music. 

Black tie was the attire of choice for the occasion.  Natacha let the bridesmaids choose what style gown they wanted to wear as long as it was navy chiffon and by a particular designer.  Gents donned tuxedos with black bow ties.  White and ivory blooms popped against the dark tones and showed off the crystal and peacock feather accents.
Guests were shuttled by trolley from the Hyatt the day of the wedding to Holy Trinity Anglican Church.  A white N and V wreath hung on the red doors of the church.  Ivory shimmering paper with navy script and peacock feather in the seam made up the program.  Rahab Hackett played the harp while Natacha was escorted down the aisle by her mother. 
We enlisted Marshall Graham and Justin Robinson to make sure the memories lasted.  DJ Jamie Blair was on music once he got approval from Victor's disc jockeying groomsman.

After the ceremony, Natacha and Victor's guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the Hyatt's lobby and the newlyweds hitched a ride in a vintage Packard.  After a lively introduction, guests could take in the scenery- blue up lighting around the perimeter of the room, crystals dripping from the centerpieces, silver satin napkins, menu cards and place cards on shimmering paper, and silver chargers.  Peacock feathers were tucked into the napkins and the centerpieces.  Navy crinkle taffeta linens covered the round and square tables with silver chivari chairs and silver satin napkins at each place setting.

The cake was even adorned with crystals thanks to Susan at Couture Cakes.  Natacha loves sweets, so there was a sweets table prepared with all sorts of treats, including cake pops and donut holes.  When guests wanted to take a break from dancing, then they could get away and take a trip to the photo booth.  At the end of the day (literally, the reception ended at midnight) we sent the happy couple off to the elevator to their suite.  Guests left with silver luggage tags,photo strips, sore feet, full bellies, and happy hearts.

Brittany and Michael: Purple and Sassy at the Wyche Pavilion



























We met Brittany at the Wedding Festivals at the Hyatt. I went to hand her some information, and she said that her wedding was at Larkins and she was definitely going to call us.

Brittany set up her appointment right away and I was lucky enough to hang out with her, Michael, and her mother Donna.

Brittany and Michael used B & R Events for day of coordination for their downtown Greenville wedding.  Everything Brittany chose was a little sassy, and a lot of fun.  Brittany's girls got ready in the Rick Erwin's apartment.  We LOVED her one shoulder, ruffled, fit and flare gown that she accented with a bird cage veil.  The guys donned classic tuxedos and the girls wore dark purple taffeta cocktail dresses with black accents.

Dahlia created fluffy and fun flowers for Brittany and Michael's big day.  Different variations of white mum, white feathers, and purple lisianthus decorated the couple's wedding arch in Larkin's Courtyard.  Their guests enjoyed Joyce Fankhauser playing the harp while Brittany and Michael performed a sand ceremony.

Sam Brooks with Life of the Party welcomed the guests to the reception in the Wyche Pavilion.  Flash Booth 5 was there for the guests that didn't want to dance, but instead wanted to play!  Justin Robinson was able to capture all the heartfelt moments, like Donna's speech at the beginning of the reception. Kathy and Company baked and decorated a contemporary cake featuring purple and white lilies. And Season's Photography made sure that they got Brittany and Michael's sparkler send off before the newlyweds escaped on a stretch Excursion.

Want to check out the awesome video?  Here it is!  (Boom.)


Thanks again for choosing B & R Events!  We loved working with you!
