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!

Celebrate: Morgan & Caleb

Sweet Morgan!  Oh my goodness, the kindness and consideration that came out of this darling bride and her mother was beyond comprehension – I swear I think they sometimes were more concerned with how I was doing than how the wedding was coming along!  They are such thoughtful and enjoyable people, there was no doubt in my mind that this day was going to be fully loved by everyone who was there.  One of our favorite venues to work at, Belle Meade Plantation was a hot beauty on this July day, and we loved every minute of it!

Celebrate: Claire & Brian

Beautiful Claire is a woman who knows exactly what she wants.  Probably why I liked her so much.  I knew from our phone call that we would get along great because she was efficient, direct and super pumped about her amazing wedding she had been planning.  Then when I met Brian and heard the pastor describe his dog persona as a “labrador retriever”, I knew that there couldn’t be a better descriptor.  These two are so complementary of one another, I can just tell they’re going to ham-and-egg life beautifully.  We were so thrilled to be a part of this insanely gorgeous and over the top wedding! This A-list team of vendors pulled out all the stops and it was like a well-oiled, party machine!

Celebrate: Noelle & Adam

Noelle contacted us only about 4 months before the big day, and I knew she had a lot of big plans in store!  A true people pleaser, she wanted to make sure everyone was happy at all points, from her parents to her future in-laws to getting exactly what her groom wanted for the big day, she planned her heart out! And all of the work paid off to create this beauty.  So happy to have helped execute her vision, it was such a perfect day!

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: 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: Emilija + Joshua

These two beautiful souls were brought to me by a friend of mine.  He barely even knew the couple, just that they were engaged and looking for some guidance throughout their process. I feel so lucky that he was in the right place at the right time to refer me, because the pure, youthful love and glow that these two have is truly worth admiring.  Emilijah and Josh are the picture perfect heart-eyed emoji.  Just the way they look at one another or talk and laugh and even contradict one another, is why they will make a beautiful marriage that lasts.  You can see it captured in the images below by the talented Jordan and Alaina.  If only I could show the full lot! Many thanks to the fate that brought us together.  Happy to know these two.

Celebrate: Kat + Alex

Sometimes when you meet a person, you can tell they radiate an energy that draws people towards them.  That is Kat, and in no doubt, why Alex fell for her when they were just friends.  Kat and I clicked immediately because she is from Nashville and moved to SoCal;  we think we swapped places, both loving things about our new homes and missing things about our past.  She was my gateway back to a California breeze and I just adored the vibrant spirit of hers.  Kat and Alex had a beautiful Ojai elopement and then opted for a low-key, Nashville roots reception after the fact.  The Loveless Cafe Barn was the perfect location for a little good, old-fashioned Southern get together.  I hope we see each other one day in an airport as we pass ways!
