VENDORS Bartending Bearded Bartenders Beauty & Health Southern Couture Makeup Catering Edinburgh West Ceremony Venue Edinburgh West DJ/Entertainment/Music Jumping Jukebox

Their Story - Olivia (Medley) and Alejandro Luna were married at the gorgeous Edinburgh West in Taylors, SC. The couple first saw drawings of this venue fours year earlier, sitting next to Marc Wheeler and his daughter Kennedy at an awards banquet. Olivia knew right then that Edinburgh West, a glass conservatory style building, was where she wanted to eventually get married. The entire property was decorated to reflect elegance and rich color, overflowing with deep purple, burgundy and gold and velvety black details. Alejandro and Olivia met seven years ago on Folly Beach, SC and reconnected two years later. Olivia didn’t live in the Upstate at the time, so their official first date was in her hometown of Chattanooga, TN. Six months later Olivia moved to Greenville. The couple have been involved in the wedding industry for many years; Alejandro as a photographer with Noveli Photography and Olivia as a bridal stylist and manager with The Poinsett Bride. We felt truly blessed to have built the relationships we have, and our vendors went above and beyond to make our day super special! We focused on sentimentality and guest experience and it was very important to us that our guests, which included many event vendors, enjoyed the night. Holly’s Cakes and Edinburgh West made our cake come from the ceiling!Thats never been done here in the Upstate. Jumping Jukebox ‘gave us everything they had’ which is what Blake would tell us almost everytime we saw him before he passed. We included snow into our grande exit in memory of him. There were so many small details that were special to us. Our first date was to a blown glass studio, so our unity ceremony was different colors of glass poured together and will be made into an art piece for our home. We feel that our wedding is the beginning of a new family, and so while planning, we created a Luna Family crest which was sealed on all our invitations and favors.

VENDOR FEATURE:

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!

Micah & Brason

Lets taco bout love! Laurenda’s taco bar was a hit for so many couples in 2021! This was true for Micah and Brason! Micah and Brason became friends after meeting as Fuge Camp counselors in 2019. Their friendship grew over the summer as they served together. It wasn’t long after they both went back home that they decided it was time to visit each other. From that visit, they both knew they found the one and the rest is history!

Madison & Logan

From the bride: Growing up in a small southern town, I had always dreamed of having my wedding at Fountain Inn First Baptist Church where I was raised. Each Sunday I would sit on the front row of the balcony and dream of walking down that aisle. On January 23, 2021, my dream came true as my dad walked me down the same aisle that my mother walked down almost 26 years before. There I stood with my future husband and the answer to many prayers. Our wedding was classic and elegant with many loved ones being part of the ceremony. Our reception was fun and celebratory with snow and snowballs being tossed as we exited in my great grandfather’s 64 Chevy.

38

WWW.UPSTATEWEDDINGSANDEVENTS.COM


At the reception Laurenda’s served delicious, southern style food. Everyone enjoyed a variety of options with tossed salad, lemon garlic chicken, chicken tenders, macaroni and cheese, roasted red potatoes, rolls, and mini cheese biscuits. Topped off with a hot cocoa bar and cinnamon roll icing feature.

Their Story - Established in 2019, Heyward Manor was designed and built by brothers Don and Jake Black on their 900-acre family-owned tree farm – Charlie’s Creek Nursery – in Iva, South Carolina. Although the venue was not completed, the family hosted their first wedding on April 13, 2019. The bride was Don’s daughter, Tori Beth, who grew up on the farm and always dreamed of getting married there. A few months before the wedding, Tori Beth’s grandfather was diagnosed with leukemia. His health quickly declined, but he held on in hopes to see his granddaughter married. Her wedding day finally arrived, and her grandfather put on quite the show. To everyone there, including the bride, he seemed to be feeling much better. In fact, he danced the night away and even cut in during the father/daughter dance. It was priceless. Two weeks later, the bride’s grandfather passed away. His name was Heyward Black. After returning from their honeymoon, Tori Beth and Jake found out that her grandfather had been hospitalized only days after the wedding, but he wouldn’t let anyone tell them while they were gone. Thankfully, they were able to say goodbye. As construction on the venue was completed a few months later, it came time to name the venue. Nothing seemed to fit at first. And then it clicked. The family chose the name Heyward Manor after their father/ grandfather, to honor him and to cherish those precious memories with him at the venue’s first wedding.

Heyward Manor is so much more than a wedding venue. It’s our home. To us, family is everything, and we consider all of our sweet couples to be new members of our family. That’s how Heyward would have wanted it.

Their Story - Kyle and I met thru my brother and some of his mutual friends. We had been around each other a couple of times before we finally exchanged numbers. Come to find out… Kyle and my two brothers had been friends for years. Kyle, Jeremy, and Will raced cars against each other and had even been to concerts together. So when I met Kyle I knew I could trust him because he was good friends with my brothers already. The first time we hangout we both knew we would be inseparable. We hung out every chance we got. We shared a bond that brought so much joy to us that others noticed a change. Kyle popped the questions in my kitchen on December 18th, 2021. He had put the engagement ring in an Oreo knowing I would be getting the Oreos out. The wedding was a dream. Everything came together better than I could have ever expected. I planned every detail and my vendors were able to make our dream a reality. 06.26.2021 will forever be my favorite day.

I love what I do so much, and my couples and families know that very soon in the planning process. I am beyond flattered and honored when a family trusts me to assist with the planning of one of the most important days in their lives. I take it so seriously, but still love to laugh and have fun through the entire process. I look at it like I have one chance to knock it out of the park. There is no do-over. I put my heart and soul into every wedding or event I plan. I have now planned well over 1200 weddings in my career, and still love it! I look forward to working with you!

Their Story - Cicely and Mario’s love story began back in 2012. The couple shared mutual friends that felt they were made for one another. After many long, meaningful, and often flirtatious conversations of sharing their hopes and dreams, Mario’s charming personality and sense of humor won Cicely over. They knew something magical was happening in their relationship when Cicely and Mario discovered a mutual love for music, traveling, and family. The two became engaged on September 7th, 2020 at Pearson’s Falls Saluda, NC on a beautiful bright September day! Their wedding day on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at 4:00 o’clock sharp was by far the most extraordinary day of their lives. That day a dream became reality. One of their favorite moments of the wedding was walking down the aisle of the beautiful Marriott Hotel, feeling all the love from family, friends, and well wishes. Also, Cicely locking eyes with her soon-to-be husband while walking up that beautiful marble staircase. The couple ended the night on cloud nine, blessed and excited about the start of a brand new chapter in their ever unfolding love story.

For us choosing Ole Blue Truck Farm was the best decision we could have ever made! It was truly the best experience from booking to rehearsal to reception! Anne and her staff at the Farm were so involved in every aspect of the day for months to make sure everything was perfect. And it was!!! Thank you so much for you hospitality and professionalism during the process! Lauren and Nathan had a magical day and it would not have been possible without you all! 10/10 would highly recommend!" Kim S. Of Mapletree Lane - Planner for Lauren & Nathan S. "We found Ole Blue Truck Farm through a Facebook group we and Anne were both in. She invited us to come look at the venue and within the first ten minutes we knew this was it. The place is stunning. As we continued to work with Anne, we got to see how much of a blessing she is. All the fine details and memories she remembered and created for us are things we will never forget. She worked with us with our budget and was very understanding of our situation. She helped us find the best baker, and gave us other options for any additional event wants and needs. Anne is very resourceful in all she does. There are so many options to choose from when working with her because she makes everything personalized. The property, from front to back is just breathtaking. Everything from the bridal suit to the hall, gives a feeling of warmth, happiness, and love. She gives endless options of places to celebrate and gather. We personally chose the big oak tree. The property is incredibly kid friendly. We had tons of kids just running around and having a great time. Our friends and family were amazed with how beautiful everything was, and how great the staff was. Anne and Ole Blue Truck Farm blessed us with exactly what we needed and wanted. This place is forever tied into our memory and they became a part of our family." Andrez & Ashley C.

Their Story - Abbey and Huw met at Furman University on the Lacrosse field, but their love story officially started one night at Connolly’s Pub. Huw approached Abbey to buy her drink and after talking for a while he came up with the idea to try to reach the roof of the Westin Poinsett Hotel. They made it into Westin and up as many flights of stairs that they could, but could not reach the rooftop. Skip to 5 years later they were celebrating their Wedding reception at the Westin Poinsett Hotel and were finally able to go to the roof!

Their Story - We both went to Clemson, but it wasn’t until years after graduation that we met. After being out of college for 5+ years, one of Steven’s friends told him that he should try online dating. Around the same time, one of my friends convinced me to try online dating as well. After a few weeks, we met online and began getting to know each other. It wasn’t long until we were on our first date. Steven asked me on a second date while on our first, and the rest is history. When we got engaged, I knew I wanted a fall wedding because I love all the fall colors! I also knew that I wanted to have a somewhat boho, yet classic style – so I went with boho florals and colors, but with a photographer with a light and airy aesthetic. After scrolling Pinterest, I knew I wanted my wedding color palette to incorporate terracotta, navy, blush, tan, copper, gold. Andrea did an amazing job making all of my floral dreams come true while incorporating all of these colors!

A destination place to truly experience that feeling of love, peace and tranquility, so close to home.

“Laceé Meadows is as stunning as the name sounds. As you enter the ranch through the stone entrance, you will pull down the long driveway, greeted by beautiful white horses and their friendly faces poking over the farm fences. Ahead you’ll see the sweet white chapel, planted in the meadow, overlooking the pond. A holy hush over the scene. If you are able to peel your eyes away from this breath taking view, to look on down the paved road, you’ll be surprised to see the most grand covered bridge. It’s warm color and romantic lighting has witnessed some of the biggest parties, most touching toast, yummiest food and wedding cakes, and not to mention all the dance moves! Need a place to get dressed for the special occasion or prepare to be wisp away with the love of your life after the celebration is over? Laceé Meadows has the coziest Bridal Cottage Treehouse that will make you feel like you’re off in a world of your own. The elegant details of this cottage treehouse are unmatched. Take a bath in the luxurious claw foot tub or rinse off in the outdoor shower! Imagine waking up and enjoying a cup of coffee or tea on the porch and soaking in the scenic views and wildlife that call this venue home.

“Our wedding day was the best day of our lives! From the beautiful venue, delicious dinner (and late night taco bar!), and the florals of our dreams, our day was more than we could have ever planned for. The SC weather even cooperated and gave us the fall temperatures to match the fall wedding vibes that we truly wanted. We loved every second of being surrounded by all of our favorite people as we celebrated our new lives together!” -Katie, bride 122

WWW.UPSTATEWEDDINGSANDEVENTS.COM


Food was more than a necessity for Katie and Patrick’s event, it was part of the atmosphere and entertainment! They carefully planned their reception and made sure guests could reach for delicious food any time of the night with cocktail hour, dinner, and a late night taco bar.

Cocktail hour While Katie and Patrick finished their golden hour portraits, guests enjoyed a charcuterie board and refreshments.
