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!

Celebrate: Hayley & Richard

Hayley and her mother, Lisa, were so much fun from the moment we met, we all knew we were going to have a blast planning and partying on this wedding day!  Hayley is one of those people who’s energy is contagious, and it’s no wonder why Richard fell for her before he even really knew her.  The high level of spirit and easy-going nature she exudes let’s you know that no matter what, even if the wedding was in the rain or in a box or in a shed, she would have a great time and so would everyone around her.  Fortunately, we had some pretty amazing vendors and the rain-filled clouds even parted on this day – so despite having lost her voice, she shook her tambourine and danced the night away!  Such a memorable night, loved getting to be a part of this vision!

Celebrate: Lauren & Kevin

Meeting these two was just meant to be!  Our team was already at Belle Meade Plantation setting up for a wedding, when a lovely bride walked into the venue with her parents in tow.  I believe it may have been the father of the bride who asked me for my information first, since he saw me running around and likely figured he didn’t want that to be him a year from that month!  From there it was such a great time getting to know and love the energy of this entire family.  They were such a joy to be around and had such enthusiasm over everything, there was just no way this day could have gone anything but perfectly – even when a downpour started and we moved to Plan B at the last minute!

So honored to know these lovely people.

Celebrate: Sam & Joey

I could tell from our first phone call that Sam had a free spirit and that she couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle to meet Joey.  These two really have beautiful, creative souls that are warm and welcoming, and you could see that throughout each of their family members that helped put together this beautiful soiree!  I truly love how their personal style showed through – I mean, the dress still kills me it’s so amazing, we felt so honored to be a part of this beautiful day!

Celebrate: Jenny & Chuck

Jenny and Chuck are the quiet but thoughtful sort of couple that are just perfect for each other.  They’re both very simple, but intentional in all their choices and I loved that about them.

The morning of their wedding, we all woke up and saw that the ground was covered in snow.  It didn’t matter that one week prior it was 70+ degrees out, in Nashville, you never know what is coming!  But that didn’t even phase these two.  While the snow melted just in time to take a few pictures outdoors, their wedding was a perfect and flawless affair with close family in friends. Congrats!

Celebrate: Mariel & Brandon

Mariel is one of those gentle souls who likes things to be absolutely perfect, but always in a calm, observant sort of way.  When we had our first phone call I knew that our personalities could mesh in such a way that I would be able to bring peace to her throughout the planning process.  And when she came back and said she wanted to work together, I think we both knew that it was going to be an amazing collaboration.  She is careful and calculated in her decision making, and I know that is why she and Brandon are going to make it.  She turned to me once with tears in her eyes and said “I just can’t wait to marry him”; it was unsolicited and just pure joy.  These two are going to have a beautiful marriage!

Celebrate: Caitlin & Elliott

If you’re going to celebrate NYE at a wedding, this is the way to do it!  Caitlin & Elliott had small morning nuptials at their high school amongst close family and friends, and then turned the evening into a black-tie affair at the Oz Arts Center.  The band was roaring, the food was delicious, and the guests were all dressed to the 10’s! It was such a fabulous evening, everyone let loose and had a good time celebrating these two, it was certainly the perfect way to ring in the new year!  We are a little short on images, but hope you can see the beauty within the few we have 🙂

Celebrate: Sarah & Drew

Sarah is a very independent, driven business woman who knows what she wants – and her wedding is no different.  We met in a Women in Business networking group, hit it off, and she excitedly told me that she had an inkling she was to be engaged soon enough!   As only someone like Sarah knows, within weeks she was engaged and I was on the phone setting up a time to meet with herself and her sweet fiance, Drew.  Sarah had her vision right from the start – a winter wedding, and she had all the ideas in her head ready to implement.  We were so happy to be at the beautiful Noah Liff Opera Center to help execute her big day, it turned out to be a gorgeous, winter wonderland that smelled like an evergreen forest! Congrats Sarah & Drew!

Celebrate: Kristin & Dillon

I love a good 6 degrees of separation game. So when this darling bride called me, she told me she know who I was because she was roommates in NY with one of my husband’s friends, in the same building – 10 years ago – then two years ago moved to Nashville, fell in love RIGHT when she got here, and was marrying the man she saw across the bar and knew she wanted to date.  What??  Now I have to give her props, first of all, because I know this crazy roommate of hers, and I knew I had to love any girl who could live with someone as wild as him!  And second of all, because she and her mother have extraordinary taste. I was so thrilled to be a party of this gorgeous wedding, I think we all just have to thank her groom, Dillon, for letting us go with things and make it truly exquisite.  Thank you, Kristin, I loved getting to work with you!

Celebrate: Maria + Chasen

Sweet, sweet Maria.  I don’t think you’ve heard a gentler voice than this one.  I absolutely adore her loving energy and how it compliments Chase’s rugged “boy”-ish personality perfectly.  When Maria saw Chase for the first time, she called her mom and said she met the man she was going to marry – even though they hadn’t really even spoken!  Sometimes I think that two people are just meant to be and their senses gravitate towards one another.  This is that case. And we got to help make this day absolutely beautiful.  Thank you for that.
