Ceremony Decor

It is all in the setting and here at Shay Brown Events we love creating a design and vision for your wedding day that will be remembered for a lifetime!

A wedding ceremony that is created especially for you.  This is where all of your family and friends gather to watch two become one, as you take your first steps down the aisle together as a married couple.
Your loved ones as witnesses, it provides the spoken promises to one another to keep forever and always from this day forward. Make this a beautiful moment to remember with these lovely design ideas.  From the grand estate of Biltmore to a family warehouse church, SBE listens to what is important to you and we create a vision that is reflective of you!
Here comes the bride! What better way to walk down the aisle to your beloved than one lined with gorgeous flower arrangements, petals, lanterns or candles.
These romantic decorations set the tone for the first day of the rest of your life. Pretty pinks and neutrals create an intimate setting for an indoor venue, that feels lush and romantic.
Sunrise and sunset weddings are absolutely breathtaking. These types of ceremonies create the most amazing backdrops for the moment you say, “I do”. The rising or setting of the sun will catch the glimmer in your eyes as you say your vows to the one you love most.
Indoors or outdoors, ceremonies mark a memorable moment for you and your guests. Depending on the season, you may wish to have your winter wedding ceremony inside to keep your guests toasty or in the warmer months head outside for the natural glow of the summer sun.
No matter where the location a rustic barn, luxurious mansion, a family home or a national park. This moment is one to remember and cherish for the rest of your lives.
We at SBE look forward to helping you create a ceremony to remember.  From planning with one of our amazing planners to having Shay design and create a breathtaking backdrop, we are here for you!!
Till next time,
The SBE Team
XOXO, Taylor

Wedding Favors

What will your guests take away from your wedding? At Shay Brown Events, we want your guests to have a unique and wonderful wedding experience with memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Wedding favors are a thoughtful way to thank family and friends for coming to celebrate the big day with you. Traditionally, these gifts consist of bags of chocolates, potpourri, or mints these are things your guests will enjoy but we like to encourage our client to give something that will be a lasting memory.  So let’s switch it up a bit and give them something they can remember you by for years to come!

One of our brides incorporated beautiful greenery and pastel colors into her wedding day and wanted to send her guests home with the gift of beautiful plants. These adorable succulents and air plants are placed in simply decorated mason jars –  they were the unique present she was looking for. Succulents are easy to care for and will remind your guests to let love grow!

Have you and your partner started any new hobbies lately? Perhaps jams and jellies are your new obsession? What about a newlywed brew or an fruit infused vodka? These homemade gifts are personal and make a customized gift from the two of you.

An increasingly popular idea is customized mugs, shot glasses and mason jars.  These are perfect for guests to use for filling their cup during the wedding and a great take home present for many years of use… Another fun favor is small bottles of your signature liquor with ribbons and a cute thank you note for your guests to enjoy another day.

Whatever your wedding favor idea is, Shay Brown Events is here to help you execute every detail to make your wedding the wedding of your dreams.
XOXO, The SBE Team

Winter Wedding at Old Edwards Inn, Highlands NC

The warm days are gone here in Asheville! We, at Shay Brown Events, are really looking forward to our winter events and loved this wedding at Old Edwards Inn so much we thought we would have a flashback to this beautiful winter day for those planning their winter 2016/2017 weddings.

Old Edwards Inn is an amazing venue year round but is particularly special after a fresh dusting of snow. This European style retreat is set atop the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina giving your wedding the perfect scenery and backdrop. We loved the photographer, Nick Breedlove Photography. He captured the beauty of the season and was a delight to work with.

It may have just snowed the night before, but that did not stop this bride from showing off her lovely dress with her bridesmaids. She rocked her warm fur coat and heels before making her way down the church aisle and then into her stunning reception at Old Edwards Inn.

Sparkling white lights and gorgeous greenery created the most amazing ambiance for this winter wedding. Glowing candles and fresh flowers made this night comfy and cozy for all to enjoy. Guests loved the warmth of the venue while watching light snow blow around outside through the large open windows surrounding the reception.

Beautiful centerpieces and decor are what we live for. Candles and delicate flowers are perfect for an intimate table setting. The incredible flower arrangements were done by Oakleaf floral, they turned out so wonderfully. These flowers mixed with silver votives add touches of elegance and reflect the brightness of tea lights around the room for a remarkable candlelit dinner.

The SBE Team is here for you every step of the way as we plan and design your perfect wedding. We take such pride in our work and want to make your day everything that you ever wanted it to be.
Until next time,
The SBE Team
