Cliffs at Glassy Wedding – Zen Greenville Reception – Rochelle + Reggie
I must admit that if I had to plan mine and Anne’s wedding today choosing venues would be really hard. That being said on the list would be Cliffs at Glassy Chapel and Zen in downtown Greenville,SC. Both venues have an elegance about them that is indescribable because words can’t do either justice. You have to experience them.
We started off the day at the Marriot downtown Greenville where the girls were getting ready. From the start of the day Rochelle was one of the most laid back, calm, happy brides that I have ever dealt with. Seriously, if she had any nervousness it was not evident at all from my standpoint. After tasking some shots of details and Rochelle getting her makeup applied from makeup artist extraordinaire Renata Stewart (who did an amazing job!) it was time to put on her amazing dress. Her dress (see photos below) was one of the most beautiful dresses I have seen. From there it was off to the Cliffs.
We arrived at the Cliffs to find picture perfect weather. Clear skies and white puffy clouds. As the ceremony began and Rochelle walked down the aisle, Reggie had the picture perfect expression as he saw his bride for the first time. Some moments that we capture stick with you and I don’t ever think I’ll forget the look on his face. Pure joy and love. After a beautiful wedding we took the family and wedding party around back of the chapel to the overlook for photos. I honestly don’t know if there is a better place in South Carolina to shoot, especially on a day like we had. Once the wedding party and family was done we spent some time with Rochelle and Reggie then it was off to Zen in downtown Greenville for the reception.
Zen has a vibe to it unlike any other venue. Add in some amazing food and the sounds of the NuSound band and you have the recipe for an amazing reception. Guest danced the afternoon away as the band rocked the house. If anyone is looking for a great wedding band look no further that Nusound. Awesome vocals, a tight rhythm section, and a great stage presence. The event was unlike any other and everyone in attendance had a great time. It was truly an honor for us to be there to capture it. After the event came to a close Rochelle and Reggie were cool enough to spend some time with us outside Zen in the garden and up in the suite upstairs for some more photos that turned out amazing.
Enjoy some of my favorites from this awesome day!
