Read on to get to know our amazing talent in 10 Qs…
What is your favorite wedding season and why?
Spring! Our confederate jasmine on the pergola in the Courtyard is in full bloom and the weather in Charleston is beautiful!
What is your favorite wedding tradition and why?
Something Borrowed! I love when my Bride + Groom’s use something from their parent’s wedding such as champagne flutes, cake knives, or even part of the Mother of the Bride’s wedding dress to wrap around her bouquet!
What is your favorite CG signature cocktail and why?
The Blushing Bride – it’s such a pretty light pink color and has the perfect amount of spice with the jalapeño simple syrup!
What is your favorite item on the CG menu and why?
Our Herb Crusted Atlantic Salmon. It’s so fresh from our local vendor and Chef Cheyenne prepares it perfectly with creamed leeks on the side and a horseradish crème fraîche and asparagus on top. Yum!
Favorite quarantine past-time?
Cooking, making specialty cocktails, deep cleaning my apartment, doing my own wedding planning and walking the beach and Ravenel bridge.
Have you picked up any new hobbies during quarantine?
My fiancé and I adopted a puppy so we have busy training her! She is a border collie and golden mix and her name is Ellie (pics below)! I’ve also been running a lot and used to never run before quarantine.
What is your favorite thing you’ve cooked during quarantine?
Stuffed ricotta shells and I just bought an air fryer so I have had fun making healthy dinners such as buffalo cauliflower tacos and everything-but-the-bagel seasoning chicken tenders!
How has your routine changed since you started #WFH?
I still wake up early but have been able to work out a lot more since I am constantly at home and have a lot of friends offering virtual workouts on social media!
Have you done any virtual Cannon Green tours?
Yes, I have done a few!
What do you miss most about going into work?
I really miss my co-workers! We always have fun while working and it has been hard not being in the office with them every day. I also miss having staff meals…. having to try and make my lunches as good as Chef Cheyenne’s has been really tough. We are so spoiled!
