Ashlee White knew exactly what she wanted for her wedding day… pure romance with elegance and “Old Hollywood” style. Together with her wedding planner, Brandon Ali (Weddings by Brandon Ali), we designed a lighting scheme to help give Ashlee the wedding day of her dreams.
Kudos to Ashlee for picking the PERFECT venue for this type of event. A popular venue for rehearsal dinners, weddings, fundraisers, meetings, arts and music events, 701 Whaley can accommodate a wide range of special occasions. Located in the heart of Columbia’s Olympia Mill Village, this lovingly restored 1903 building was once the community center for the mill workers of the area. It is now one of Columbia’s most sought-after locations.
Check out these photos of Ashlee’s big day.
The Lighting and Effects were as follows:
Gold/Amber Uplighting on perimeter walls
Spotlighting for the cake, sweetheart table, Photo Op area, and 2 large florals
Custom Monogram projection onto dance floor
Crystal Columns on 4 corners of dance floor
Crystal Chandelier over cake
3 Small Crystal Chandeliers over bar
