Check out Elizabeth and Chris's Clemson wedding held at the Madren Center/Owen Pavilion. Photographed Photography & Design By Jenny. One great idea, that isn't listed, is giving the groomsmen Clemson Paw lapels instead of boutineers. It lasts longer than flowers and doesn't wilt or get squished when guests hug you! They used orange accents throughout their decor(napkins, candy table, desserts). Their entrance to the reception was with the Tiger mascot and to "Tiger Rag." Their exit was with orange and white pom poms. Of course, we got permission to have photos taken inside Death Valley. Here's their wedding link:
