This wedding was very dear to our heart. Adam Kozic and I grew up together. We weren't blood brothers or anything, but our parents knew each other during our school days, and I remember many times as it snowed in Travelers Rest, we would head to his house because he had a giant hill which also happened to be his driveway that we could sled on. Adam also told me during our final wedding meeting that he found a DVD of me when I was 16 years old (around 2002) DJing his sisters birthday party.
Zen is just one of those places that we love because it's in the heart of Downtown Greenville, it's an amazing venue, with a lot of room, and was quickly being filled with all of Adam and Shelley's friends and family. Close to 200 people packed the Zen reception room as we played cocktail music, and many enjoyed their salads and drinks awaiting the bride and grooms arrival.
About 30 minutes into cocktail hour I headed to the front door to wait on the bride and groom and to greet them and their wedding party. Austyn continued to keep the crowd inside entertained with requests and even a little shagging on the dance floor. The wedding party and the bride and groom arrived in a trolley and parked on Main Street, just outside of Zen, in Downtown Greenville, SC. As they got off the trolley, I gather the wedding party and line them in the correct order, followed by the Bride and Groom at the end of the line. We walk everyone inside, and make an announcement to the crowd waiting inside, and introduce the wedding party followed by Mr. and Mrs Kozic!
A Little Surprise!
Our second attempt it, we hired a professional to design this one. The bride and groom and their family and friends enjoyed taking photos and selfies and using the Snapchat filter we created for their wedding evening. (See photo above)
Congrats Adam and Shelley!
It's always a great day when we get to be a part of someones wedding day. But it's extra special when you've known your bride and groom for awhile, and all of us come from the same hometown of "TR". Adam and Shelley are truly remarkable people. It's great to see both of them, and to know that Adam is an amazing man, and will treat Shelley amazlingly. We wish both of them well, and if Adam is reading this...if I can get all copies of that horrible DVD of me DJ'ing in 2002, that'd be great! :)
