A Love Story by Mahaffey: Brian + Ellen Celosky

Brian Celosky and Ellen Shapiro, native Memphians, didn’t have your average introduction. The now-lovebirds both “swiped right” to each other’s Tinder profile – in other words, they liked what they saw. For those who may not know, Tinder is an app that functions similarly to that of an online dating site.  

Clearspan Tent

Fast forward in time, and Ellen and Brian were engaged to be married! The two tied the knot on Saturday, November 12, 2016, at Second Presbyterian Church in Memphis, Tennessee. The two are so loved, as made evident by the number of people standing by their sides on their happy day. Each had 11 attendants, totaling to 22 in the wedding party. 

Table Rentals

Mahaffey is honored to be able to bring magic to couples on their happiest of days. We installed a clearspan tent in the courtyard of the River Inn of Harbor Town for the Celoskys’ celebration. We filled the tent with round tables and folding fruitwood chairs. The tent was equipped with portable heaters, making even the coldest November evening pleasant. 

Wedding guests enjoyed the southern-style menu with Mahaffey’s oxford white dinner plates, glass plates and pearl dinner flatware.

Table and Chair Rentals

Ellen has such a fun spirit and was an absolute joy to work with. Brian is truly her other half. We are so happy for the newlyweds! Thank you, Brian and Ellen, for including us. 

We’d love to be a part of your special day! Check out our extensive list of event rental items, and give us a call to get started.
