A few months ago, I had the pleasure of working with Greenville wedding DJ Justin Reid (pictured above). I was so impressed by his professionalism and level of service that I asked him to partner with me for this post. You can read more about his company, Uptown Entertainment, on their website, but in this post I wanted him to:

1) let you know a little more about himself and

2) tell you what, in his opinion, couples need to consider when planning for DJ services at their wedding

Justin is able to offer a unique perspective because he is a newlywed (he married the love of his life back in October), and he’s been doing weddings for over eleven years! Since his wedding was in NC, he actually had to go through the process of hiring a DJ, just like every other couple out there (although he definitely had a better idea of what questions to ask and what to expect!).

So, without any further adieu, here are his great answers to the questions that I posed! [Read more…]

Wedding Workday in Greenville, SC: Cliffs Chapel & Old Cigar Warehouse

I really liked being able to write a post last week before I headed off to the wedding, so I decided that I’d like to make it something I would try to do before each of the weddings I day-of coordinate. I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t have time because today’s going to be a pretty long workday, but I’ve been up since 5:30AM, so I’m not going to have to worry about that. ;)

Today’s wedding is going to be beautiful and incredible to work. At the rehearsal last night (which was above On The Roxx, it’s an awesome space) the couple was so sweet and so ridiculously excited about what will be going on today. I was brought on as their coordinator fairly recently, so I didn’t have anything to do with this, but I also have get an opportunity to work with some of my favorite vendors! [Read more…]

Wedding Workday in Greenville, SC: Holy Trinity & Larkin’s Cabaret Room

So, I decided to write a quick Saturday post before I head off to do some day-of wedding coordination. Since it would be nice to do a little stream of consciousness writing, that’s what we’re going with here!

Wedding Workday Morning – Website Submissions

My wedding workday morning is obviously very different from my bride’s wedding morning! Today I was able to get up early and knock out some emails.

One of my favorite things is receiving emails from my website! I love questions and, of course, requests for more information about my services. If you have something you want to ask, email away! [Read more…]

Who needs New Years Resolutions….

When you can have birthday resolutions instead!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season! Mine was filled with lots of family gathering time and several weddings, too! Now that things have calmed down a bit, I’m ready to re-focus on blogging here at Love This Little City. I’ve been keeping a running list of topics that I would love to share with you (and now I have time!).

Oh, and I have another cool thing to share with all of you brides who are still working on your table and linen choices. Back in early December, my sweet boyfriend, Jon, was nice enough to act as the photographer for this epic, 7-hour-long photoshoot that we did showcasing the different table sizes and linen sizes that you have to choose from. It’s going to show you exactly what everything would look like with this size table and that size linen. It’s going to come in handy, promise. That will be posted soon!

I’m also working with a few wedding vendors in the Greenville area on guest posts where they’ll share their knowledge and tell you how to make your big day even better!

And back to the birthday resolutions… I just celebrated by 29th birthday a few days ago, and since it’s so close to New Years, I always hold off on the resolutions for a little while since two weeks really don’t make that much of a difference. My Birthday Resolution this year is to carve off some more time to continue to build this blog, all while still helping my brides through my day-of wedding coordination services. No biggie, I got this!

Finally, I will leave you with this fabulous (slightly grainy, because The Lazy Goat is too dark for photos) picture from my birthday dinner. Fried goat cheese with honey and pistachio dust is my favorite!
