Holy Ribbon, Batman!

Saturday, June 16, Kristin Newman Designs of Charleston and Curly Willow Designs of Greenville teamed up to wow a big apple bride at the Gibbes Museum of Art.

Joel from Curly Willow and his team worked tirelessly stringing alternating gold and ivory ribbon in THREE individual tents. Twinkling string lights peeked through the amazing ceiling installation and large votive chandeliers were dressed with greenery.

Guests started inside for a quick cocktail and to pick up their place cards done by Martine over at Dulles Designs. After being seated in the courtyard. Carolina Catering served a delicious dinner of beef tenderloin and lobster stuffed shrimp with haricots vert and twice baked potatoes, Yum!

Jim Smeal made a beautiful 5-tier cake decorated with icing flowers that matched the delicious cookies guests got as favors.

Bryan Mahanes from Other Brother Entertainment brought the Pat Patrick Band all the way from Nashville, and toward the end of the evening a group of military men, including the groom, took over the mic with "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" just like Top Gun, HOT!

The Gibbes Courtyard and its walkway were filled with even more greenery with rentals from Plants Alive making it look like a lush oasis, even though the weather was surprisingly cool. Curly Willow arranged many interesting pieces with a continuous ivory and green theme.
