Home. It means very different things to a lot of people, all of us come from different situations. However, once you found your home, you know it right away. In preparation for what we thought to be a new beginning, 314 Collective was initially going to be based out of Louisville, KY after being officially founded earlier this year. Our team began the transition process, changes were made accordingly, and we went full steam ahead launching ourselves into a new market this past August. While Louisville was wonderful, filled with a lively population, surrounded on all sides by rivers, blue grass, and horse farms, there was something still brewing deep in the heart of our company.
The peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains dotting the horizon. Lake Keowee and Lake Hartwell calmly winding through the landscape. The farmland and rolling hills stretching for miles, intertwined with communities rich with Culture. The purple of the Paladin flag, and bright, eye popping orange of the Tiger Paw waving in the cool fall air. Nestled in the foothills of upstate South Carolina, the Reedy River gently flowed through the vibrant town of Greenville, SC… Yeah, That Greenville.
Before long, we knew we weren’t home. Whether it was the beautiful landscape, all of the amazing people we were able to meet and work with, or maybe just the fact it was getting harder and harder to find sweet tea, we finally decided to follow our hearts back home. Being able to jump right back into a wonderful wedding community full of eager couples and countless incredible vendors has reminded us of what we knew we were missing. 314 Collective belongs in Greenville, is Greenville, and will continue to be for years to come.
