The Old Cigar Warehouse will be hosting six free wedding ceremonies on July 4 in honor of the recent Supreme Court ruling.

Online PR News – 30-June-2015 – GREENVILLE, S.C. – GREENVILLE, S.C. – The Old Cigar Warehouse will be hosting six, free wedding ceremonies this Saturday, July 4, in honor of the Supreme Court’s ruling that fully legalized same-sex marriages.
The ceremonies are on a first-come, first serve basis and include flowers, a wedding officiant, music by a DJ, cupcakes and a celebratory champagne toast, said Tammy Johnson, owner of The Old Cigar Warehouse. Couples are able to bring up to 20 guests with the ceremonies taking place in 30-minute blocks starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 11:30 a.m.
“We are partnering with other wedding vendors to share in this historic Supreme Court ruling because for so-long LGBT couples have not had this opportunity,” Johnson said. “This is also a great opportunity for those who have already had a commitment ceremony, but now would like to have a legal ceremony.”
The wedding package includes:
• 10 minute ceremony from Danielle Baker, Your Wedding Lady.
• Indoor ceremony location with seating for 20 guests at The Old Cigar Warehouse.
• Free ceremony photography from Todd Williams with Magnolia Studios.
• Ceremony music and sound from Uptown Entertainment.
• Your choice of two bouquets or boutonnieres from Tailor & Table.
• Congratulatory champagne toast and cupcakes from Liquid Catering and Couture Cake.
