This gorgeous wedding at Sparrow Beginnings is a favorite for so many reasons. First, Maria and her family were so great to work with from the very first time we met them! Second, it’s always a pleasure working with great professionals - especially when you have a lot of work to do in a short amount of time. Stephyn, owner and lead planner at Southern Charm Events not only spearheaded a great design process, but a smooth installation for one of our most complex room flips to date!  Maria wanted to use this gorgeous venue to its fullest, for both the ceremony and reception. And, she brought in rentals to customize the space completely - so there was a lot to do!

 

Featured Item: Gold Chiavari Chair

 

We love this image where the couple exchange a happy kiss right after their recessional. Their guests still seated and the wedding party still at the altar, they share a private moment in a room filled with people. And what you can’t see, is that our full service crew is waiting in the wings to quickly transform this same space into a glamorous reception!

Our team set up for the ceremony and then we returned and transformed the space in under an hour - with time to spare for Redeemed Productions to take amazing pictures of the space. Here, our gold chiavari’s silently sit in the sunlight filled room, waiting for the arrival of guests.

 

 

  

And 45 minutes later, tables have been set up, linens thrown, chairs reset and dishes placed. We were honored to work alongside The Fleuriste’s crew who quickly reset the aisle florals onto the tables as centerpieces. Voila! It’s amazing what magic can be accomplished with a good plan!

 

The reception was full of gorgeous details and fun for a party that didn’t stop until well into the next morning. Who wasn’t in awe over this elegant cake by Mishelle Handy Cakes, flanked by The Fleuriste’s gorgeous florals and set against the floral draped grand staircase? Set in the very same spot the bride had walked down to meet her groom an hour earlier.

 Every place setting was luxuriously appointed. Regardless of the tight timeline, no details were spared in design or execution. Here, the Bride’s place setting is highlighted with a sweet place card.

This party lasted well into the next morning, full of captivating entertainment and energy! We couldn’t have been more honored to be entrusted to setting the stage for all this joyous celebration!

 

 

Oh, and did we mention that all this happened under the duress of a rain plan?! It didn’t dampen spirits one bit, nor did it throw us or any of the other pros off track.
