Sip & Sweat

Our job is typically busy looking a year into the future, so it’s so much fun for us when a last minute project falls onto our plate and keeps us on our toes!  We were so excited to be called by the amazing FlyteVu team to help out with design for a last minute yoga sweat session at the top of FGL House during CMA Fest!  It was such a great process with a lot of hands on deck to make the morning memorable.  I think the many attendees were excited about the outcome of the event and the local artists they got to meet!

Celebrate: Jaclyn

It’s not very often that we get to take on the smaller celebrations, so it was so fun for us to get to help out with this sister-of-the-bride plan an impromptu lunch during their getaway in Nashville!   The moment we had a call with Jilane, we knew we were going to love putting this intimate gathering together!   With personalized gift bags with local goodies like Olive & Sinclair chocolates, a little Jack Daniels and treats from Thistle Farms, and a three course lunch, these ladies were all set to sit back and relax (despite the summer heat!).

Celebrate: Erin & Steve

These two amazing people, are both the youngest of 4, and have 3 older sisters each.  So when I said “have immediate family show up at 4pm for pictures”, I forgot that that meant like 30 people. I came downstairs and a reminder light went off in my brain, because at first I was thinking “who are all these guests here so early!!”.  It was so sweet to see how their family cared so much about these two and all the littles were playing some sort of roll in it all.

And it’s no wonder that they are accustomed to a chaotic group gathering or little kids running around – it didn’t even phase Erin when I (last minute) had to bring my 5 week old baby to a meeting and walk around bouncing him in my carrier while we selected linen colors!  That is why they wanted this awesome cocktail style, lounge-y gathering where everyone is just together; talking, dancing, laughing, not ever sitting for too long, because that is their comfort zone and what makes them happiest. Just a good, familial group of people celebrating their love.  Congrats!

Celebrate: Kate & Wade

The moment you meet Kate and Wade, you just know that they’re perfect for one another.  They’re both soft spoken and have the same down-to-earth vibe; they even look perfect for one another.  I think you could categorize Kate’s voice as the sweetest voice you’ve ever heard, it just makes you want to be her friend.  Needless to say, planning their wedding with them was an absolute delight!  I adore them both equally (I think in part because Wade said he has worked on building some Tiny Homes for HGTV and I’m OBSESSED with HGTV), and I couldn’t be happier that they have just begun their beautiful life together after this gorgeous wedding. Exactly what you’d expect from her: classic, simple, natural and beautiful.  Such a perfect day!

Celebrate: Katie & Jared

When you have a rap battle right after your grand entrance to your reception, you know this is going to be one heck of a party! This great big Italian wedding was wonderful and full of life.  Katie’s optimistic personality kept her going throughout the entire planning process, and Jared’s perfectly supportive demeanor was the perfect match to this energetic duo.  It has been such a fun year working with this gem, so happy to finally get to see them happily married!

Celebrate: Erica & Charles

I’m sitting here writing a collection of blog posts from my past 5 or so weddings, and I could not be more lucky with the group of people that I get to work with.  While all my couples could not be more different from one another, they each have these amazing qualities to them that make me so fortunate to get to know them.

Erica and Charles have the most amazing, quirky, fun-loving personalities. With a little bit of sarcasm from Charles and type-A detailing from Erica, these two hit home for me and I felt right at ease from the start! And when you listen to their talk and banter, it’s obvious they’ve been together for quite a few years (the cake topper actually said “finally” on it!) and are going to last a lifetime ahead.  Such love for these two, so grateful to have gotten to know them!

Celebrate: Jennifer & Chris

Jennifer is like a bottle of champagne always ready to be popped open! This bride has so much energy and enthusiasm and personality, she would literally make me laugh out loud for a good 90% of the emails she sent me.  It is no wonder that her groom is so kind and her family just the same, she just is a magnet that draws in really good people.  It was a blast working with her and helping make her day complete, such a great day! Thank you Jennifer, keep shining bright because you bring joy to those around you 🙂

Celebrate: Rafael & Rachel

They say you can’t plan life, and for a planner, that can be pretty annoying when it comes true.  After being so excited to plan Rafael and Rachel’s September wedding in Seattle, it turned out I would be welcoming my own new addition to our family just 7 days before the wedding, making it impossible for me to travel across the country.  My heart broke at the thought of missing this day for two reasons: because I hate to disappoint anyone, and because these two amazing people are also family. Rafael is my cousin and there are only a few chances to get to plan and attend family weddings, and I did not want to miss this one!

I couldn’t have had a more gracious couple to not only be excited for me, but to completely understand that my physical presence on the wedding day wasn’t what makes the process a success.  So with that, the day was absolutely beautiful, with a trusted coordinator in place to execute this amazing day, I just wish we could have been there! So thrilled to welcome the beautiful, smart and funny Rachel to our family, Rafael knocked it out of the park with this one!

A Planner’s Brunch!

I’m fortunate enough to live in an amazing city where women are SUPPORTIVE and KIND to one another in business and want to see one another SUCCEED.  That is why I’m so happy to be a part of the Nashville Wedding Planner’s Group, where a bunch of business owners can be friends instead of competitors.

Last month a few of us put together a brunch to showcase some local vendors and enjoy one another’s company.  It turned out so beautifully thanks to an amazing collaboration of planners and vendors!  Enjoy!
