Kayden & Alan at 701 Whaley

Kayden and Alan's November wedding at the historic 701 Whaley building exuded romance and classic elegance. Their softer fall color palette and the venue's industrial grounds came together in perfect harmony for the couple's unforgettable day.

Located in the heart of downtown Columbia, the carefully-restored building originally built in 1903 encompasses old industrial charm in its grandeur. Kayden and Alan's ceremony took place in the exquisite Granby Room, which boasts intricate glass windows, rich exposed columns, and gorgeous historic charm. While there’s no doubt about the beauty of historic venue, all eyes were on Kayden as she floated down the aisle in her ethereal gown, complete with cascading lace detail. She carried an arrangement of soft lavender and white blooms interspersed with fresh greenery. Her bridesmaids complemented her perfectly in purple gowns. Alan and his groomsmen looked handsome in classic charcoal suits with plum colored ties. All eyes were on the soon-to-be Browders as they recited their vows to one another in front of a minimalistic altar with an abundant floral arrangement reminiscent of Kayden’s beautiful bouquet.

After the ceremony, the venue was transformed to house the reception. Round tables covered in white linens were topped with iron lanterns and floral arrangements that provided a nice pop of color. The glow of the candlelight and of the exquisite lighting overhead created the perfect ambience for celebration. After a delicious dinner, Kayden and Alan cut into their stunning cake – a decadent three-tiered creation covered in a white coat. As the day faded to dusk and the celebrations came to a close, the couple bid their loved ones adieu and embarked upon their new life together as newlyweds. Cheers to the Browders!
