Mickala and Sam's Wedding

This has been a really busy wedding season for us so far and don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining. I was extra excited about the wedding this weekend though because the reception was being held at Zen, in downtown Greenville, SC. I was really looking forward to seeing that venue come alive with a wedding celebration.

Mickala had booked the venue when it was not much more than a dream in the owner’s eye. We were going on architectural drawings and keeping our fingers crossed that it was going to be something special and it was. The whole wedding was pretty spectacular.

The girls got ready at the Westin where most of the wedding party was staying. After some pictures were taken at the Westin, the guys and girls took a trolley from Eastside Transportation over to St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. The ceremony there was simple with only two calla lily arrangement to decorate the altar. Music for the ceremony was done by Strings For Things and was perfect as always.

After the ceremony, everyone left for Zen where the reception was to take place. Once there they were greeted by a cocktail hour out in the garden area. There was an open bar along with cheese, fruit and hors d’oeuvres.

Once inside the reception area, guests were blown away by the elegance of the pale ivory linens topped by ivory pin tuck overlays. There was a rectangular bridal party table in the center of the room surround by round tables for the guests. Guests were seated in chivari chairs with ivory cushions. There was a white lounge area upstairs in the loft.

Flowers were soft cream and ivory calla’s mixed with hydrangea, roses and curly willow. There was a mixture of both tall and short centerpieces in glass cubes adding excitement and texture to the room.

Mickala had found a cake pictured in a magazine that she loved and Kathy and Company reproduced it perfectly. It was pale ivory with fondant lace and white ribbon on each layer. It was quite the show stopper.

Dinner was a down home southern buffet. Fried chicken, prime rib, mac and cheese, green beans, salad and cheese biscuits had the guests mouths watering.

After dinner guests were entertained by the band The Uptown Players Band.

All and all it was a fantastic evening and event. I can't wait to see the professional pictures. As soon as they come I will share them.
