LAUREN & MICHEAL | PINE LAKES COUNTRY CLUB | MYRTLE BEACH, SC

I have known Lauren for many years, prior to her relationship with Micheal (also known as Rapp), but when I saw them two together I knew it was genuine, real love. Lauren, a bartender at King Street Grille and Rapp a Firefighter for the City of Myrtle Beach, are both well known in the community. They were friends long before they started dating which they say assisted in jump starting their relationship.

He proposed on the beach on vacation in Mexico surrounded by Lauren’s family. Upon their return, set the wedding date for just under a year after the engagement. We had such a fun planning process full of laughs and prosecco :)

Pine Lakes is full of elegance and class and that was the theme throughout the entire wedding. By taking elements from the 20’s era such as crystals and gold, and Art Deco style shapes and fonts and combining it with modern, romantic candlelight and greenery took Lauren & Rapp’s wedding day to beautiful luxury.

During the ceremony, Rapp’s fire station surprised them by bringing one of the trucks to Pine Lakes for photo ops, and I have to say, it was so cool! From start to finish this wedding had all the bells and whistles - Crystal chandelier as the ceremony backdrop, bag pipe band, custom bars, and even a food truck serving delicious cheeseburgers & french fries for guests to indulge in as they left the reception!

Lauren & Mike, we wish you all the best of luck & love!

MARGARET & JOHN | 21 MAIN EVENTS AT NORTH BEACH | NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC | EVENTS BY SANANA

When beautiful elegance meets handsome sophistication! The union of Maggie and John kicked off our 2018 wedding season. Keeping the exchanging of vows close to the heart, the sweet couple opted for the most intimate of ceremonies at the Sea Captain’s House with only close family to witness.

A party fit for the ages, the reception was hosted at 21 Main Events at North Beach, an elegant venue with class and finesse. The tables were dressed in black satin linen with pearly white napkins to accent each seat. Magnolia leaves were a sentimental touch to the glowing bride, so each centerpiece was designed with enchanting gold candle sticks and a bed of deep green magnolia leaves. It was a minimal, elegant and timeless black tie soirée fit for a king.

After an exquisite plated dinner served by the most professional staff of 21 Main, family and guests shared a toast over bubbly and a decadent dessert bar from Buttercream Cakery. Then it was time to dance! Not a guest kept their seat til it was time to say goodnight. Such a lively party, it was the perfect way to start this years wedding season!
