Looking back on January!

Whew what a way to start 2009. We had several great events in January starting with the Woodside ~ Moorhead Wedding. Mary Gould and Jamie Moorhead were married on January 3rd at The Citadel Chapel and then danced the night away at the historic Wickcliffe House in downtown Charleston. Thanks to Leigh Webber and her team for capturing the beautiful event! Be sure to check out all the wedding photos in the Wedding Galleries II

January 24th, Red Letter Events worked with a team of talented ladies and fabulous vendors on the Roper Xavier Foundation's Donor Appreciation Gala. Guests enjoyed 'A Night in Casablanca' at the Charleston Place Hotel in downtown Charleston. Gendarmes were on hand to escort guests into 'Rick's Cafe' for the 860-person seated dinner. Special Guest Speaker Tom Brokaw entertained the crowd with stories of his news career and support of our military troops. Humphrey Bogart also made an appearance in front of a model airplane specially designed for the event. "Here's Looking at you Kid!"

Special thanks to Charleston Place Hotel, PDA Lighting & Sound, Lotus Flower, Distinctive Events, Joe Clarke Band, Willie Jones and her talented actors, Signs Plus, OOH Event Decor & Nancy's Plants. For more pictures go to:

A few days later, the RLE team worked with the Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy on their annual banquet for a 500-person seated dinner and silent auction. The Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy is an awesome non-profit organization that provides pastoral care and counseling for employees and families of law enforcement and the general public. They are always there when you need the help and this evening, the Charleston community came out to support this great organization. RLE was very proud to be a part of the evening's festivities in providing decor for the event.

Red Letter Events Featured in Southern Weddings Magazine

Southern Weddings Magazine just launched their premiere issue in January (check out the artilce and we were one of their 'Real Weddings' featured! Robin and Winfield were such a delight to work with on their McClellanville wedding. The only thing SWMagazine forgot to mention was the unexpected 'special guest' that appeared at the wedding reception...the TOWN DOG!

I couldn't have planned a better 'special touch' to this small town wedding, he was the hit of the party, even though I tried many times to wave him away from the food tables. Don't get me wrong... I LOVE DOGS, but was concerned he would be disrupting the guests...eventually my good friend Dr. Dale Tanner (and my dentist) told me just to "give it up!, he's not hurting anyone...besides, he lives down the street and comes for all the parties!"
