Jan 14 , 2018

Savvy Soiree Wedding & Event Showcase

Your Wedding & Event Planning Destination

With several years of bridal show experiences, and the creative minds of two wedding professionals coming together, the Savvy Soiree Wedding & Event Showcase was born.

Stephanie has been a Certified Wedding Consultant since 2005 and is based in Columbia, SC.  She says "I enjoy meeting a bride for the first time and hearing her excitement as she tells me all about her big day. I equally enjoy the process of planning with a bride and seeing it all come together"

Andrea has been a Professional Wedding Photographer since 2004 and is based in Darlington, SC.  "The one thing I enjoy about shooting weddings is that each one is unique in it's own way and every bride feels special and loved and I get to capture every single moment of that day and preserve it for her for years to come"

With experience under their belts, Stephanie and Andrea came to recognize exactly what brides, grooms and their parents have come to look for and expect in a wedding event such as this.  There has been a LOT of planning, and due diligence given so that they can guarantee the Savvy Soiree Showcase is top notch!

This event is a fabulous opportunity for brides and grooms to meet with some of the areas best wedding vendors all under one roof, to view their work and talk one-on-one about how they can best work together.

There will be handouts, a fashion show and many, many prizes to be won. 

This is a wonderful opportunity and not to be missed!

Sponsors include Elegant Events by Stephanie Forte, Photographs by Andrea, CHQ Productions and Southern Divine Event Planning.
