Lauren and Josh Wedding

Spencer Special Events - Friday, October 31, 2014

Our darling couple, Lauren and Josh, were married in August at The Marriott Resort and Spa on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. It was a day filled with love for each other and their family and a rocking party we'll never forget. Today we are here to show you all the beautiful photos by the ever-so-talented Landon Jacob Productions, and all the pretty little details of this beachy, casually-elegant wedding. Perfection!

We loved the bridesmaids' light blue dresses, eye-popping orange, pink and white flowers adorned with sea shells by the fabulous Freshcut Flower gals, the yummy welcome bag (complete with champagne!) that fit with the theme of the wedding, the elegant paper details, couple's monogram designed by our dear friend Emily McCarthy, the sand ceremony that incorporated their darling son, the sand dollar escort cards, and incredible beachy cake by the one and only Minette Rushing. (We could go on!) This was one beautiful beach wedding, folks! We couldn't be happier for the wonderful couple, Lauren and Josh and their precious family.  Here's a glimpse back on the day!

A huge thank you to a huge team of vendor friends that made this wonderful day possible!

Children's Miracle Network Torch Relay (Event Recap)

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, October 29, 2014

We wanted to take a few minutes and give a huge "thank you" to everyone who was able to support The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Torch Relay on Monday! The Spencer Special Events Team had a great turn out with our staff and friends. We were able to raise several hundreds of dollars and enjoyed a fun and adventure filled afternoon that included our kiddos! We were so proud of Case Spencer, who represented the The Marriott's Surf Watch Resort proudly, kicked off the race with enthusiasm and thanked the long list of participating sponsors and folks who made the event possible! Griffin and Russ stood proudly watching their daddy, too! Here's a quick photo recap of this action packed afternoon for a fantastic cause. Thank you all for your support!

We hope you can join us next year! Thank you again for all the support!

Rachael & Jeff

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, October 15, 2014

What a treat do we have for you today! In case you missed the post on Style Me Pretty, we are here today to share all the beautiful (and we mean, truly beautiful!) details of Rachael and Jeff's Colleton River Plantation wedding in May. It was such an honor to be featured on the front page of Style Me Pretty and even more of an honor to work with this sweet couple. Their love is so evident and this wedding was truly all about them and celebrating that love with their families.

With an Avante-Garde fashion forward dress and BoHo Chic dresses and halos for the bridesmaids, the styling on this wedding was perfection. The duo was married in the charming United Methodist Church where they always wanted to marry. The Voices of El Shaddai Gullah Choir rejoiced in "Oh Happy Day" immediately following the ceremony. We couldn't get enough of the gorgeous florals by A Floral Affair.

At Colleton River, custom made bars were crafted and cocktails and hors d'oeuvres were served on the lawn with soft seating. Inside, a dramatic escort card display was created with guest names hanging from a chandelier wrapped in flowers. For dinner, Chef Robert Wysong at Colleton River Plantation created impeccable dishes with local grouper, Mediterranean roasted chicken and filet of beef. Minette Rushing of Savannah Custom Cakes created the most splendid cake gilded in gold and guests danced the night away with East Coast Entertainment's top band. The entire day was filled with an incredible team of vendor friends that made this beautiful wedding possible. Here's a photo recap!


Meet Lindsay Daly!

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Over the last few years, Spencer Special Events has grown tremendously and what a fun ride it has been! We are so fortunate to have an extensive team that makes all of our amazing events possible. With three event coordinators, our PR/Social Media gal, between 3-5 day-of assistants and of course, Case Spencer who's our jack-of-all trades, Spencer Special Events is more than just one person show. We're comprised of a group of individuals that together makes the Spencer Special Events family. Today we're highlighting one person in particular-- meet the darling, Lindsay Daly!

Lindsay started with Spencer Special Events over four years ago and now is responsible for designing and planning many of our smaller, more intimate events. This is particularly exciting for all those brides that realize during the planning process they need a little help on their wedding day! Lindsay's incredibly trustworthy, creative, detail oriented an absolute doll to work with. She's more than experienced, too.

Lindsay grew up mostly in Connecticut and after graduating Vanderbilt University, she worked at JCrew in their corporate office in NYC. Her roles included keeping an eye on fashion and style trends, as well as budgeting and placing orders in a very faced paced environment. She had to be creative, good with balancing finances, and very detail oriented. (Translates so nicely to wedding planning, doesn't it?!)

Her passion for weddings dates back to a young, single girl in her early twenties where she kept a secret stash of wedding magazines. (Ssshh! Don't tell.) For Lindsay, event planning encompasses so many of the things she loves! Lindsay majored in Art History in college, loves interior design and all things beautiful. For each wedding, Spencer Special Events is helping couples design a unique and personal ceremony and reception space -- it's right up Lindsay's alley and reflects her passions!

Linsday absolutely LOVES getting to know the couples she works with. Since every couple is so different, she finds it so much fun getting to know them and their style for their dream wedding. Lindsay always finds it  interesting to see the songs they pick." I feel like that tells a lot about them!" she says. "We’ve had everything from very traditional, to all songs from Disney Movies, even had a flash mob dance at a rehearsal dinner!" Whether it’s as the bride is walking down the aisle or if they have chosen to do a first look – Lindsay's favorite thing is always when the groom sees the bride for the first time!

When she's not planning weddings, you can find Lindsay hanging out with her goofy great dane, Georgia, where the two love to stroll on the beach. She loves hitting the pool with a great book and frequents Lowcountry Back Yard (one of her favorite restaurants) and other yummy local eateries and watering holes.

 There you have it, folks! A snippet and insight to the fabulous Lindsay Daly! We hope we've given you just a little peek at our team and sparked anyone's interest in one of our limited-service packages. For inquiries, please visit here!

Katelyn & Evan

Spencer Special Events - Wednesday, October 01, 2014

If you follow any of our social media -- Facebook, Instagram, Twitter -- you may have noticed we were over the moon excited about seeing our gorgeous (inside and out) couple, Katelyn & Evan, featured on Weddings Unveiled Magazine Blog.  (The highly popular blog is seen by hundreds of thousands of people! So cool!) Weddings Unveiled is known for featuring exceptionally beautiful weddings with fantastic photography. It's a true honor to have one of our Spencer Special Events weddings featured.

But so much more than seeing an event of ours featured in a magazine or blog are seeing the photos again. They bring back such an incredible day for us. In working with couples and their families for months and months, people become like family to us. And so, seeing Katelyn & Evan's photos allow us to reminisce about a beautiful day when two people we love got hitched! Seeing their families faces again really warmed our hearts!

With the ceremony and reception both taking place at the prestigious Colleton River Plantation Club in Bluffton, South Carolina, Katelyn and Evan had a stunning wedding with classic finishes and details. White, cream, khaki, natural linen and touches of green and purple made up the color palate. Take a peek at some of the glorious photos (some of which you may not have seen yet on our social media!), shared to us by the exceptionally talented and pleasure to work with, Joy Marie Photo.

In case you missed Katelyn & Evan's engagement photo shoot, be sure to visit this post -- it was also really beautiful and worth the click. A HUGE thank you to all the folks we worked with on this wedding. What a talented team of friends!
