Marriott Wedding Shoot|Greenville, SC|All that Glitters is Gold

It’s that time of year again! Veils and Tails is an event for brides to get inspired for their weddings by the work of the talented members of the Upstate Bridal Association. I teamed up with Upstate Event Services and the Greenville Marriott again this year, this time with the theme “All that Glitters is Gold.” UES broke out their best gold rentals–chairs, sequin linens, lanterns, chargers, and {my favorite} silverware and set it all up in one of the most beautiful rooms for an event at the Marriott–Meritage, which has a wall full of windows overlooking the pool.

I added my own touch of sparkle with the agate slice place cards, complete with my best makeshift calligraphy {it took me an embarrassing number of tries to write my own name}. Anna was our beautiful bride for the day, and we could not have asked for a better model.

We added some variations to our inspiration setup by showcasing Marriott red, the pool area, and the stunning fountain in the lobby. We wanted to visit the lobby for the gorgeous skylight light, but it was practically dark by the time we got there. We ended up with a dreamy candlelight glow in those perfect lanterns!


Isn’t gold the greatest? We hope you’ve been inspired and any of us would be glad to be a part of your big day. 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!
