In the latest issue of Charleston Weddings Magazine, Engaging Events was featured in an article about planning your Vow Renewal, based on the 20 year vow renewal we did this past summer at the Sanctuary on Kiawah Island!
“A vow renewal ceremony is so special because it celebrates where the couple has been, where they are now, and where they want to be,” says Cindy Zingerella of Engaging Events. When Sonya and Robert, married 20 years, wanted to commemorate the spot of their first kiss (outside the Sanctuary at Kiawah Island), they hired Cindy to create the “wedding” Sonya had always dreamed of. Cindy created a flower-filled setting that framed the couple as they spoke their vows and threw an elegant dinner resplendent in white.”
Cooper River Room
November 5, 2011
Caitlin and Chris were married at St. Andrew’s Church in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant.
They followed up the ceremony with a reception at the Cooper River Room at Mt. Pleasant’s waterfront park. This is a really neat venue and we were excited to be designing an event there. The view is spectacular and the venue is unique and flexible in its use.
In Lieu of a guest book, Caitlin chose to have her guests “Leaf” their signature on their new family tree!
Guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn, followed by dinner in the Cooper River Room- Caitlin’s color scheme was so pretty for fall, charcoal grey and apple/pear green and ivory. We used beautiful button linens from Connie Duglin Linens in ivory accenting them with charcoal grey runners and then Judy our florist helped finish it off with bouquets of green hydrangae.
Guests enjoyed a “Beer Rita” as the specialty drink- yes you guessed it- a margherita meets beer- created by the fabulous crew at Mosaic Catering.
Guests dance the night away to the sounds of Soulfish, in a tent bedazzled with Engaging Events chandeliers, and comfy cozy lounge furniture.
Caitlin, Chris, and all their family and friends had a great time…we wish them many happy years to come….
Right before Christmas, we were so excited that Abbey and Joseph’s wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty!
