VENDORS Bartending Good Life Catering Beauty, Hair & Make Up Hair by Bryson Nix-Edney & Kelsey Farmer Makeup by Christen Nix-Kehoe Catering Good Life Catering Ceremony Venue Bride’s Family Farm

Their Story - After a close friendship and dating for a few years, Myles proposed November 11, 2019. Rewind to March of 2019 – I was in a jewelry store with my mother, sister and another family member dropping off a piece of jewelry for repair when an estate ring caught my attention. The ring made me think of Myles and I instantly fell in love with it. We knew that we would eventually get married but hadn’t taken any steps towards engagement at the time since we were in the middle of planning my sister’s wedding. The following week I went back to pick up the repaired jewelry and the ring was gone – I wrote it off and assumed someone else had fallen in love with it as much as I had, completely unaware that Myles, my sister and my dad had taken a trip the the weekend prior especially to purchase the ring under the veil of a trip to look at farm equipment. He held on to the ring for eight months waiting for the perfect moment to pop the question and did so in the most perfect way in November 2019. Having had such a long relationship, I knew what I wanted for my wedding day and because of that planning was a breeze. As a kid, I watched the movie “Father of the Bride” with my dad every chance we got so that movie held a very tender place in my heart making it the obvious inspiration for our day. Suzie Bunn of STATICE instantly connected with my vision and did such an amazing job bringing it to life with floral design. Professional Party Rentals of Greenville was my first stop and they were also amazing with bringing my vision to life. We knew that October was a very popular month to get married, so securing vendors was at the very top of my to do list. The only need I didn’t already have a dream vendor for was catering. PPR directed me to Good Life Catering and I am so pleased that they did. We could not have been happier with the food. After our huge tasting, we talked about the food for weeks. You will not walk away hungry from a GLC tasting. The food and the staff at Good Life exceeds expectation. Our guests still comment to me about how delicious the food was and how wonderful the waitstaff was. Guests were especially pleased with the bartending staff connecting with them and remembering their orders. Everyone from Good Life made our guests feel special and I’ll never be able to thank them enough for that. Myles and I both work for my family’s company in the apple industry. I handle brokerage, sales and packing operations while he works with orchard management. Having chosen to get married during the time of year that we commonly work 10-12 hour days, I knew that while I wanted to plan our wedding myself there was no way I would have the time to execute the tasks necessary to pull it off the two months prior to the day. This is where my coordinator came in. I chose to work with Shannon Pruitt of Bespoken. We chose to utilize her 60-90 day coordination service and it was a perfect fit. Even though we went with the short term coordination, Shannon made herself available to me anytime and was wonderful to work with. In September, I was able to confidently hand her everything I had done knowing that she would be able to pull all of it together and keep the stress as minimal as possible. Fortunately, we had secured all of our vendors by the close of 2019 or very early in 2020. I never batted an eyelash at being a COVID bride because of all the wonderful people we worked with. Each and every one of our vendors made our wedding day and the time leading up to it one of the most truly happy seasons of our lives. Most people reflect on 2020 negatively, but the two of us look back on it with so much joy.

The florals were a dreamy combination of white hydrangeas, blush roses and all shades of greenery. The colors complimented the whimsical backdrop of Aurora Farms and most importantly the beautiful shade of Deep Sea bridesmaid dresses as they stood next to Jessica at the alter. Florals by: Culpepper Designs

“Our love story began as high school sweet hearts when my girlfriend set me up on a date with her brother. Nine years later and he popped the question! He is my true love and best friend. He has always been there for me, even when my father passed away from colon cancer 3 years ago. Something special incorporated in our big day was my dad’s 1962 Chevy 2 Nova, that Adam restored so we could use it as our getaway car.” Jessica WWW.UPSTATEWEDDINGSANDEVENTS.COM

33


“In the midst of a pandemic, our parents still blessed us with our dream wedding, complete with a gorgeous venue, beautiful florals, and fantastic food.�

Jessica & Adam chose a wonderful selection of delicious pasta dishes, a traditional tossed salad, accompanied by sauteed mixed vegetables and breadsticks. Italian is always a menu that you can never go wrong with.

Their Story - Mari Claire and Robert’s wedding at the Southern Bleachery in Greenville, SC was such a sweet day. They met when MC needed help hanging something at her new apartment and her roommate knew a guy. Robert showed up and the rest is history! Robert said: MC and I met through church and a co-working space, but we really connected because we’ve both lost our moms. Her dad still had her mom’s wedding dress and MC did a first look with her dad in her mom’s dress (as well as her own). It was such a special moment and one she will have to look back on. One of her mother figures walked down the aisle in place of her mom and placed a special magnolia bloom on her mom’s chair. Other important women in MC’s life stood during this moment which was a beautiful way to honor them for their role in her life.

About the day- Heyward Manor officially opened in November 2019, and sweet Courtney was the new venue’s very first boho bride. Courtney brought all of her boho dreams to life by designing, planning and setting up the majority of her ceremony and reception herself. From the pampas grass and eucalyptus design on the patio overlooking the sparkling lake for her ceremony, to bridal party photos taken in tall wheat grass in the meadow, to a simplistic and greenery centric reception, every detail was absolutely perfect, reflecting the personality of this stunning couple. The bridesmaids’ classic and neutral dresses combined with the groomsmen’s stylish attire, as well as the most beautiful bouquets and coordinating boutonnieres tied everything together. A delicious catered dinner from Sullivan’s Metropolitan Grill and not one, but seven beautiful cakes from Kim Brown Cakes contributed to the wonderful reception. Courtney and Gabe first met at a friend’s church game night. Placed on the same team, Gabe talked to Courtney the entire night. He was enamored by Courtney and loved her long curly hair. A group date was arranged, and the rest is history! Almost three years later, Courtney and Gabe were engaged after Gabe proposed to Courtney on an ice cream date in downtown Greenville.

KATELYN & JONATHAN PRESENTED BY TIN ROOF FARMS

WWW.UPSTATEWEDDINGSANDEVENTS.COM


VENDORS Venue and Day-of Coordination Tin Roof Farms Photographer Ryan & Alyssa Photography Flowers Dyson Designs Catering and Bar Chef Brandon Velie, Juniper

About the day- Katelyn (Rutland) and Jonathan Phillips were married in July at Tin Roof Farms in Saluda, South Carolina, not far from where Katelyn grew up. Katelyn’s father discovered Tin Roof Farms a year before the two were engaged. Owning a helicopter business, he watched from the air as the venue was built, frequently flying over as he worked in the surrounding areas. When Katelyn and Jonathan saw Tin Roof for the first time, they immediately fell in love with its charm and exquisite detail. Katelyn and Jonathan’s wedding day was brought to life by a strong team of local vendors and supportive family friends. Guests were welcomed into the chapel, standing proudly under two large oaks. Natural light shone through the floor-to-ceiling windows flanking the long aisle, leading to a stained-glass cross where Katelyn and Jonathan shared their vows. A cocktail hour under the oaks and reception followed. Chef Brandon Velie of Juniper (Ridge Spring, South Carolina) catered the event, bringing in local fare from surrounding farms for offerings of bacon-wrapped quail, fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, and beef brisket sliders, to name a few. Juniper is where Jonathan asked Katelyn’s parents for their permission, and it’s where the couple celebrated with their parents the evening they got engaged. Music from the five-piece band echoed through the reception hall’s grand doors onto the hand-laid stone patio where greenery-sashed high-tops topped with mercury-glass votives sat underneath delicately hung Edison bulbs. From the bride’s first look with her father to the unique vows written by the family friend who conducted the ceremony, every moment was laced with tradition and sentimentality. But perhaps the most unique aspect was the couple’s grand exit. When Katelyn’s parents were married in April of 1986, they left their wedding in a helicopter. At that warm July wedding under the stars, Katelyn and Jonathan did the same, an ode to the bride’s parents and her family’s helicopter business. Warm light from the chapel shone proudly in the background as Katelyn and Jonathan flew off into the night, guests’ sparklers shining below. Tin Roof Farms was the backdrop for their perfect day, and the beginning of their “happily ever after.”

T HE E ADS ST ORY Erin and Sean Eads, proud owners of The School House Venue, The Ten Oh Eight Co, and The Borrowed Branch, were the very first couple to get married at The School House on July 25th 2020. The School House Venue, which served as an actual School House from 1923 to 1960s, sat beautifully vacant for the last 60 years, daring somebody to accept the challenge of revitalization. Well, the challenge was accepted and in an intense 6 months of construction, Erin and Sean saved and restored this iconic structure and planned their own dream wedding (during a global pandemic), all while simultaneously running their 3 businesses! This undertaking is a true testament to who they are as individuals, the team they have built around them, and most importantly, their relationship as husband and wife! 55

Their Story - Our story began in a way that neither of us ever thought would happen. Haley and I matched on Bumble (a dating app) in October of 2018. After communicating via Bumble for a little while we eventually made plans to meet each other in person. One Sunday evening we met at Joy of Tokyo for dinner. We enjoyed a short time of getting to know each other while indulging into our hibachi plates. Our time was cut short when Haley was called into work. But it wasn’t long after that before we got together again. Next thing you know, we are texting each other on a daily basis and began spending more and more time together. A couple of months passed and I had yet to kiss Haley. On New Years Eve Haley texted me from work “Happy New Year” with the kiss face emoji. I figured that was the green light for me to go for it. The next time we were together I asked Haley if I could cash in on my “Happy New Year” kiss, to which she responded “Yes, please do.” Come to find out she had been waiting on me to kiss her and was beginning to wonder if I was ever going to do so. More time went by and I eventually worked up the nerve to ask Haley to be my girlfriend. To which she responded, “I’m just not ready yet.” OUCH! Fortunately it wasn’t much longer down the road that we had another conversation and decided to make our relationship “official”…yep, we were boyfriend/girlfriend. After that, our relationship grew deeper and deeper. We found out that we were very fortunate to have our parents and families approval of each other. In fact, we enjoyed spending time with each other’s family and eventually had our families get together on multiple occasions. Haley and I prayed (pretty much on a daily basis) about our relationship and made it a point that we wanted God to be at the center of our relationship. As time went on talks of getting engaged and married took place. After 15 months of dating, I finally popped the question on April 17th, 2020. On that evening, while watching the sunset at my house, I proposed to Haley and she said yes. It was such as special time as our families were there to witness it and celebrate with us. After almost a 6 month engagement, we have finally arrived at our wedding day. We are so excited to begin this next chapter of our lives together.

Laurenda’s Family Restaurant & Catering Working with Laurenda’s, you’re more than just a bride or a groom, you are family. Laurenda’s Catering had the pleasure of catering for these two sisters, each at their own wedding. This year was Taylor’s turn as she married the man who she believed was all part of God’s perfect timing. “One day a friend came to me and said ’I have the perfect guy for you!’. We met and it felt like we had known each other forever. Our wedding planning process was anything but easy with this pandemic, but despite the craziness of this year, our wedding day was absolutely perfect! We were surrounded by so much love from our family and friends. God shined down on us that day. We had the most amazing vendors on our side and we are truly grateful for all of them! Choosing Laurenda's Catering was by far the easiest decision for us. Hands down the best southern comfort food there is!”

About the day- About the day- Allison and Kendall met in 2011 while playing college soccer together at a private university in the upstate...their friendship grew, and the rest is history! In 2019 the couple visited South Wind Ranch and fell in love with the Venue, the unique experience the Ranch offered, and also….the goats! The goats played a role in Allison’s proposal to Kendall as she used one of the baby goats to wear a bandana that read “Marry meeeeee?”. Kendall said yes and the wedding planning began!

On their wedding day, several unique and sentimental experiences occurred. 1) Allison’s father, lovingly referred to as Papa Johns, walked both brides down the aisle one at a time. 2) The mother and aunt surprised everyone and served as the “forever young” flower girls! 3) The brides commissioned a local artist to create a hand-woven textile unity piece that the couple would finish to symbolize their union as two different strands woven together. This created a beautiful piece of art.

The couple was married by Kendall’s cousin. Allison’s uncle, who married her parents in 1975, provided final blessings during the ceremony. The guests enjoyed cocktail hour while the newlyweds took final pictures at sunset overlooking South Wind Ranch’s 3-acre spring-fed lake. The couple’s three pups, Tupelo, June, and Duck were the inspiration for the signature cocktails and the cake toppers.

Cookies Cookie Break GVL

Allison and Kendall danced their first dance to ‘the song Wine We Drink’ by Drew and Ellie Holcombe, and played by friends and SC native duo Admiral Radio. Allison danced with Papa Johns while Kendall joined the band to sing their father daughter dance. The moment was precious! There was not a dry eye in sight! Dinner was then served by Daniel Lopez, serving his authentic Spanish Paella. Dinner was a huge success with the guests, as many were tasting Paella for the first time! Once the cake was cut and the marriage license was signed the dancing began! Love and joy dominated the evening! What meant the most to Kendall and Allison were having all their family, guests and friends celebrating their special day. These were the people who had shared their love and support throughout the years leading to their marriage and future together! South Wind Ranch was the perfect location for their special day!

June 6, 2020 Wedding - " My husband and I had the most wonderful experience at Ole Blue Truck Farm! The venue is absolutely stunning with multiple ceremony locations on site, and lots of beautiful places to take pictures. The staff treated us as family and went above and beyond all our expectations making our wedding day just perfect. Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a special place to make memories!" Couple Review: Leslie A. November 21, 2020 Wedding - "Mark and I came across a listing for the Ole Blue Truck Farm months before the venue was officially open. After one visit, we booked the farm for our wedding. As the months (and a pandemic) wore on, Anne stayed in contact with us. She would ask if we were interested in a particular decor item, inquire about our planning progress, or just drop a text asking how we were doing. I could not have asked for a better experience leading up to and on our wedding day! The venue was picture-perfect! All the little details had been planned, the plans carried out, and if there was a problem, I never knew about it! Mark and I had the wedding of our dreams at the Ole Blue Truck Farm, and it will hold a special place in our hearts for years to come." 70

About the day - What made this wedding so very unique is that multiple desires of the bride that were accomplished with the help of an amazing vendor team. Of course her most important goal was to marry her love, Steve, but while she gathered her family for her luxury I dos, she decided to coordinate a long-overdue family portrait as well. Photographer John Cureton captured the essence of the big, beautiful blended family in a gorgeous photo shoot outside on the patio of the venue in front of a natural green wall. Lorraine’s third goal was to celebrate Christmas with her family and during the reception, DJ Marvel switched the music to beloved Christmas tunes and the family gathered around the Christmas tree so Lorraine & Steve could disperse gifts to everyone. It was truly a magical wedding that was a celebration of life, love, and family.

BRIANNE & MICHAEL PRESENTED BY UPTOWN ENTERTAINMENT

About the day- On a day that was supposed to be “THE” date of 2020, Brianne and Michael’s wedding ended up being the only wedding we had on the much coveted date of 10-10-2020. Nothing could stop the epic celebration that Brianne and Michael had planned. Their wedding celebration was held at one of our absolute favorite venues, The Westin Poinsett in the Gold Ballroom. It was the perfect setting for their timeless wedding reception. Our day with Brianne and Michael started with us providing the soundtrack to their wedding ceremony. They chose songs that were close to their hearts, as well as arrival songs that perfectly fit the vibe and setting of their day. Once they said their I do’s, we continued the fun to their cocktail hour, complete with a spectacular charcuterie spread from and delicious cocktails too! We kicked off their wedding reception with a super high energy wedding party introduction. For their grand introduction, Brianne and Michael entered their celebration to all of their friends and family on their feet, cheering on the newlyweds. They led into their first dance, a custom choreographed dance to the theme of one of their favorite shows, Game of Thrones. When the chorus rose, so did our indoor spark fountains and the guests all cheered. The smiles on everyone’s faces were priceless and it made for an unforgettable moment. Following dinner and toasts, we kicked off their party and what a party it was! All of the seats were empty and the dance floor was packed. Our Luxe services were the perfect fit for the venue and the high energy dance party that they wanted. The guests very much enjoyed our Mirror Photo Booth experience and their album made for a hilarious keepsake. We also had our TV Luxe booth for their custom video monogram and their surprise toasts from several members of Michael’s family who couldn’t travel. Another huge surprise that we pulled off for Brianne and Michael was displaying same day photo edits from Summer and Stephen at Noveli Photography. They and their guests LOVED seeing their wedding pictures at their reception.

Every couple shares a unique love story; Kayla & Andy are no different. From the moment they met at the Greenville Drive game to the day they met again at a football watch party, these two knew they had something special. With stories like Kayla and Andy’s, Laurenda’s Catering takes the time to get to know their couples, in order to truly meet their desires for their wedding menu. Kayla and Andy chose a menu that embodied all of their favorites. Laurenda’s started the evening with a large charcuterie table full of different cheese, meats and toppings and rounded out the night with our delicious chocolate fountain paired with all the delicious treats.
