Celebrating a Birthday Party the Loluma way…

The Loluma Team had an amazing start to our weekend last weekend.  Our production manager, Moriah White, celebrated her 40th Birthday, and in true Loluma form, we went all out for it.  What an amazing venue she chose for the festivities, a first for us hosting at Revelry Brewing Co.  What an incredible spot.  The staff was so great to work with, not to mention, tasty brews.  The setting is perfect for a party and our fantastic lighting designer, Christopher, was able to highlight all the fun brew tanks and other industrial elements.  We all showed off our talents with an Epic Lip-sync Battle and enjoyed performances from Kyle Johnson, Charleston’s incredible break dancing, street performer.

What a night!

The Hughes Sisters!

We have had a few opportunities over the years to work with families for multiple milestones.  With the Hughes family, we were blessed to be a part of each of their amazing daughter’s wedding celebrations.  Lily and Sarah are beautiful, gracious and fun loving women, who come from a tight knit and loving family.  Where the solid foundation of their upbringing brought similarities to their weddings, their differences in personality allowed for so many unique elements, distinguishing one from the other.  No matter their style and priorities, both Lily’s wedding in Charleston and Sarah’s in Savannah spoiled their friends and family with incredible wedding weekend festivities.

We can only assume, after nearly 20 years in the wedding business, we may soon be asked to cross generations within families.  Are there any past Loluma brides who have daughter’s with impending engagements?

Draping Elegance in Casual Spaces

One of our all time favorite spots in Charleston is the Pavilion at Mingo Point at Kiawah Island.  The possibilities for dreaming and creating are endless.  On a normal day, you will find the space full of picnic tables and plastic “camping tent style” khaki walls rolled down.  However, the ceiling grid and wooden columns make it the perfect place to dress up and transform into an elegant affair, with draping and lighting fixtures to suit any event style.  Not to mention the gorgeous views of the water and marsh we all think of when we hear Kiawah Island.  We always love hearing from the oh so talented team at WED, and when they called in need of our draping skills, we jumped on it.  Creating both soft swags scalloped from the ceiling and vertical curtaining throughout, both softened and highlighted the structure creating the bride’s ideal southern, feminine, romance.
