Sarah and Adam Warner's Wedding

06.26.12 | Posted in: News

We had a unique wedding here at the Davenport June 7th that we wanted to share with you! Sarah Scott and Adam Warner planned a beautiful wedding that included family in unique ways.

Sarah designed the centerpieces with painted birdhouses that Adam’s mother created before she passed away when he was 15. Although Sarah never had the opportunity to meet Adam’s mother, she said that she felt connected to her because they were both artists.

The wedding also incorporated Adam’s brother, who in is the military and was deployed four days before the wedding. They connected via Facetime and he was able to see everyone and the beautiful decorations that Sarah and Adam created.

They had a wonderful time at their wedding, and Sarah shared with us afterwards, “Here at the Davenport, I absolutely loved it. It felt perfect with the brick walls and chandeliers. And anything we needed, Tucker was always there.”

We were honored to have Sarah and Adam in The Davenport and send them best wishes in their new life together!

Like almost everyone in Greer, we're looking forward to the Greer High Oldies Reunion this Saturday!

The Davenport will be open from 5pm until the last person leaves, so if you need a place to meet your classmates before, during or after the Reunion, be sure to drop by.  We'll have tables and chairs available setup eariler in the evening for pre-reunion socializing.

For the After Party (which should start around 10:30), we've been asked to have some chairs out, but to leave A LOT of space for dancing (we'll probably put all the tables up :-).  Oldies but Goodies will be playing all night, so bring your shag shoes and don't be shy.

Beer, wine and sodas will be available all evening, however we are allowing BYOB for this 1 night only.  That's can BYOB!
