Real Wedding (Special Edition): Virginia + Cam | Rye Patch | Aiken, SC

With college football season kicking off in earnest tonight, today’s post is an ECE Real Wedding: Special Edition.  Fresh off of a National Championship win, Clemson fans, Virginia and Cam, were “all in” for their March wedding. Included in the celebration were not only their nearest and dearest, but one very special guest – the Clemson Tiger himself!

Virginia and Cam chose the New South Players as their wedding band. The band’s high-energy and monster song list made them a perfect choice for this party crowd who turned it up on the dance floor.

Loads of love to photographer, Jessica Roberts Photography, for sharing her photos from this fun wedding.

Event Recap: April Showers Art Party | SC Arts Commission

For 50 years, the South Carolina Arts Commission has served as an umbrella for the development of the arts in South Carolina. Last month, they hosted an April Showers Art Party to celebrate their milestone anniversary.

April Showers featured an art sale of umbrella-themed works by approximately 30 arts professionals, a cocktail buffet and open bar, and a dance party headed by Finesse Band. Ann Brodie’s Carolina Ballet opened the event with a Singin’ in the Rain performance, and installed throughout the ceiling were umbrellas embellished by students from schools benefited by the Arts in Basic Curriculum Project.

A dream team of vendors came together to make the evening a smashing success.
