Elizabeth & Scott were married on a sweet Saturday in July in the beautiful Daniel Chapel, tucked into the shady, lush campus of Furman University. They exchanged their I Do’s surrounded by their friends and family, many of whom had travel from the four corners of the country to be part of their day. Elise had the pleasure of coordinating this darling couple’s day.
The day began for the ladies with hair and makeup, beautifully styled by two talented artists at Wilson’s on Washington downtown salon. Next, the bridesmaids slipped into their perfectly summery and elegant mint dresses by Alfred Sung, which they found on weddingtonway.com. The bride gets extra style points for gifting her ladies with perfectly matching mint totes accented with light pink monograms. The bride looked radiant in her full skirted, drop waist ballgown with gorgeous, sweetly vintage-esque delicate lace cap sleeves. After the ceremony, the bridal party posed for some scenic post-ceremony photos around Furman University, the couple’s alma mater.
Meanwhile, their guests made their way to downtown Greenville to the Certus Loft to begin enjoying the reception, kicked off with the traditional cocktail hour. The beautiful Certus Loft had been transformed with special DIY touches created by the bride, and perfectly styled decor provided by Holmes Catering. The tables were dressed with crisp ivory linens, mint napkins added a pop of color and matched the scalloped, laser cut place cards that were pre-set at each seat. The chalkboard signage throughout added just the right amount of direction, while nodding toward Elizabeth’s teaching profession.
Lanterns and beautiful flowers made by Shannon at Fairytale Florist were the perfect touch of texture and romance for the whole affair. (Fairytale Florist provided arrangements for another wedding we had the pleasure of being part of—also held at the Certus Loft: check out Clara and Kyle’s day for more!). Shannon expertly mixed white hydrangeas with small pops of hot and light pink roses. Shannon even added both tight buds and soft, full pink peony blooms to the delicious cake provided by Buttercream Bakehouse. Sparkly string lights were set above the dinner tables added a fairy tale romantic touch to the evening. Each thoughtful detail was evident, beginning with the space designated for the cocktail hour. It was tailor made for guests to have a good time, with plenty of cocktail tables, adorable wood benches for seating and a heartwarming, awwww worthy slideshow for everyone to enjoy as they reflected on the the bride and groom through the years from childhood to their engagement.
The evening went on without a hitch as this lovely couple danced and sang the night away thanks to the awesome Ray Alexander of Pros Only Entertainment. We do mean they SANG the night away: the groom and two of his groomsmen got down on one knee to sing a sweet song a capella to our blushing bride! It was a memorable moment, which resulted in thunderous applause from every guest!
To wrap up a beautiful day, the groom surprised his new wife with a horse carriage waiting at the end of tunnel of sparklers. Their send off was magical, and we loved being able to witness this happily ever after moment! Check out the beautiful details of their day as captured by Amy & David of Raycroft Art Photography.
