Locally fueled couple Jordan Amaker and Marcus Amaker are the subject of today’s beautifully staged wedding reception at Holy City Brewing Company.  They officially tied the knot last year, but happily obliged when I approached them about posing for my shoot with event planners The Event Cooperative.

Marcus Amaker, local renaissance man about town is a creative jack of all trades.  Yes, Marcus does it all from graphic/web design, videography, music, and most famously known for his poetry and spoken word.  This is what sparked Jordan’s attraction, and she says the rest is history. Jordan Amaker is the Director of Marketing and Communications for Lowcountry Local First, a Charleston based organization that advocates locally owned businesses.   Both are very invested in their local community and each other of course.

The beautiful wedding design and floral arrangements were by Maryann Hoyt and Madison Weissinger assisted by Courtney Habberstad of The Event Cooperative.  No soiree is too big or small for this boutique event planning company whose clientele includes Charleston Magazine, Charleston Fashion Week,  Belk, Kulture Klash, and countless weddings.  Their vision of a rustic wedding set in the Holy City Brewing Company came to life seamlessly and their table settings and floral design were magical.
