Eva and Nolan are like the definition of #couplegoals. They are both incredibly smart, classy, charming, and gosh, they make a stunning couple! They were married at one of the newest venues in downtown Greenville called Avenue, which fit their style to a tee.
I’ve said it before that I LOVE when couples include sentimental details into their wedding day, specifically family heirlooms. Eva and Nolan had an abundance of them! Eva’s wedding band was created using the diamond from her grandmother’s engagement ring, her bracelet matched the one her mother wore, and her earrings were designed by Nolan who thoughtfully included her birthstone in them.
Eva also handcrafted Nolan’s wedding band with Nolan’s grandfather who was an expert woodworker. Yep, that black band you’ll see on his ring is WOOD! So cool. As you scroll through, you’ll see a few more of their special touches that they included in their day too.
Eva and Nolan, it was a pleasure being a part of your day. I hope you’re having a blast in Switzerland on your honeymoon, and you enjoy viewing some of my favorite images now! \ Eva’s grandparents had a wedding day photo descending a staircase, and her mother asked if we would create a version of that. So, we walked up to the Poinsett Hotel and used the stairs on the building next door. I told them that they had to have both photos printed and framed next to one another! So, funny story here, we asked Eva’s amazing bridesmaid to come help with fluffing the veil for photos. Without her knowing, Eva quietly asked me to get some photos of her IN the shot too, so we really encouraged her to throw up the veil and have fun with it!
When we finished, we clued her in on the scheme and got a good laugh out of it. Y’all, this CAKE!! That my friends, is all buttercream…pallet painted buttercream. It has to be one of the most stunning pieces of sugar art I’ve ever seen. Eva gave Tessa a Monet painting as inspiration and I think can all agree that she nailed it.

Eva and Nolan also used the same serving set that her other grandparents used. I loved all of the ways they included family into their wedding day. Dinner was finished, the cake was cut, and everyone was ready to party…and then the power went out. I’m not kidding! About 3 blocks in downtown Greenville shut down. Thankfully, Eva had a five-star team of vendors working that day.
Allie with Upstate I Do and the guys with Uptown Entertainment acted quickly. They set out candles to give some luminance, and hooked up music through a phone and laptop into the speakers. The party went on! Some of the overhead lighting did stay on, but thank goodness for flash because this room was SO dark!
And wouldn’t you know…the power came back on literally 30 seconds before they made their exit. Ha!
