Greenville Marriott Wedding Shoot|Greenville, SC|Veils+Tails Event

This has been my second year participating the the Upstate Bridal Association‘s Veils and Tails event. Its purpose is kind of like a wedding festival, but less INSANE and more inspirational. Wedding professionals work together to show off what they can do and provide ideas for brides.

Last year I worked with Destination Travel with a “Picture Yourself Here” theme, using regular wedding photos in an international environment to encourage brides to think about destination weddings for themselves. This year my team was the Greenville Marriott and Upstate Event Services, and we looked at things a different way with our “Blushing Bride and Golden Groom” theme. Using the Marriott’s existing spaces and decor and styling by UES, we framed this venue as a destination that looks almost tropical but is conveniently located at One Parkway East.

Upstate Event Services provided the infinity chairs, dishes, linens {light pink Panama and champagne sequin!}, and even flowers, courtesy of their in-house florist.

Courtney did a lovely job with the styling, and UES offers many other services as well. Check them out! Kristie showed us around the gorgeous Marriott {where I have had dinner before for a shmystery shmop–it was very good}. The interior is awesome! There are so many carved wood details, the lighting is great, and it’s not pictured but even the carpet is pretty! I also love that fountain!

The pool area definitely feels like a destination! Imagine hanging out with your wedding party on those cool couches under the gazebo! Love this place.

Big thanks to my good friend Brooke for modeling for me! She is beautiful, and she’s a creative business owner as well! Like her Facebook page here because she has some really stunning pottery coming our way!

Courtney and Kristie, thanks for letting me be on your team! I enjoyed working with you and highly recommend Upstate Event Services and the Marriott to upstate brides!

To any brides that had the pleasure of seeing this design in person at Veils and Tails, congrats on your engagement; I’d love to meet with you soon! Contact me!
