(This wedding/post by Jill Areheart) Andrea and Jamel were a fabulous couple to work with. Andrea told me in our first meeting that she is a control freak. She had a vision for every detail of her day and wanted to make absolutely sure everything would be as she wanted. I was so happy that she trusted us…I know it wasn’t easy for her! But I wanted most of all for she and her mom to be able to let go and just enjoy the day. As you can see from the pictures of Andrea hula-hooping on the dance floor, she was able to relaxRead More →

We had the wonderful pleasure of working with a couple and family this weekend that just wowed us with their traditions, hospitality, and love! I was contacted by Rupi’s [the groom] parents who live here in Columbia.  They wanted to host a reception for their son and his new wife once they returned from their wedding ceremony in Canada.  The couple got married in Calgary a week a week ago and made it down to South Carolina for the festivities to continue with an exquisite reception held at the Columbia Convention Center.

What an amazing weekend By Invitation Only…Event Planning & Design had!  Two very lovely weddings, two VERY busy planners!   The wedding we did was so amazing and it truly was a ‘wedding reunion’ for many of us 🙂  Luke and Laura came to us to help them design, create and pull a beautiful wedding together so that they could enjoy EVERY minute of their day with family and friends. Working with mother of the bride, Lisa, was wonderful- I truly felt like one of her daughters Satruday- I shared tears with her.  They wanted a FUN event with loads of charm and elegance.  ThisRead More →
