Congrats Will & Abby!
We were so happy we got to work with Will and Abby and help them plan their perfect wedding. Their ceremony was held in the Wade Hampton Room at The Commerce Club, which has an amazing view from the 17th (technically the 16th since the elevator eliminates the 13th :) ) floor, overlooking every part of Downtown Greenville SC, and being able to see down Wade Hampton Blvd for miles! The view was perfect, the room looked perfect, and then the perfect bride started her way down the isle with her father.
As the ceremony concluded, guests then gathered into the bar area of The Commerce Club for drinks and appetizers for the next hour as we provided cocktail music for everyone to enjoy while they greeted the newly married couple.
From drinks to dancing...well almost.
Guests then moved into the reception room to find their seat at the dinner table. Shortly after everyone was seated, Sean welcomed everyone for coming to Will & Abby's wedding and began announcing the wedding party and bride and groom into the reception hall! TI Bring Em Out was the bride and groom's intro song, and they continued to dance with each other on the dance floor.
Abby's father Andy then welcomed and thanked everyone for joining Will & Abby on their amazing wedding day and was proceeded by the blessing which was done by Ted Mitchell.
Once the toasts (which were VERY funny) were completed, Will & Abby danced to Ben Folds - The Luckiest for their first dance, followed by the father/daughter, and mother/son dances....and then EVERYONE joined the dance floor and didn't leave the floor until the last song ended!
Will & Abby's wedding date will always be special to us, because Austyn (my younger brother and business partner) became a father at 5:02am on 4/15/2017! He and Dylan gave birth to a baby boy, named him Hampton, and the first room he entered after leaving the hospital was "The Wade Hampton Room" at The Commerce Club. Coincidence? I think not! :)

PS - The cardboard cut out of Will & Abby's dogs are THE BEST idea in the entire world!
