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.

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: Gizzm + Will

I had the pleasure of going to Turkey 3.5 years ago, and I fell in love with the country.  The people were amazing, the food was delicious and the sites were breathtaking.  I think my husband loved their coffee the best and I loved the turkish delight and the views.  So it was such a joy when I got called from the mother of the groom, saying that her son was marrying a native Turkish woman and they wanted to have their ceremony and reception in Nashville!  I love multi-culture relationships, so I was on board from the start!  It was amazing how Gizzm really wanted to enjoy our local customs and traditions vs. her own, and so gave her a beautiful and memorable day.  Even though our outdoor ceremony got rained out, the day couldn’t have been more beautiful for these two.

Celebrate: Kathleen + Justin

I love when I find a connection with a couple other than just them stumbling upon my work.   Nashville is such a small place; while Kathleen and Justin did find me online, it turns out Kathleen works with my neighbor whom I adore.  It was so fun having this extra connection while we worked through their Vanderbilt Legends Club details.  It makes the process feel a lot closer to home.  A special thanks to our groom for his service to our country. We are lucky that these two great people call our city, Nashville, home.

Oh What a Wonderful Year – 2016!

2016 was such a whirlwind of a year, I’m finding it hard to believe I’m writing this blog post and that it is already the end of December!

Every year I get a little nervous as January rolls in because it really feels like a crazy opportunity for my little business to grow.  I officially started this company exactly 6 years ago as 2011 came to a close, when I decided to put all my eggs in one basket and give Christina Logan Design a real shot.  Turns out it was a shot worth taking and each year at this time as I reflect on that decision, I feel extreme gratitude to the amazing clients that let me be a part of their life and trust me with handling decisions on such a personal moment in time.

Even though we haven’t gotten to blog all of these yet, here is a recap of some of our amazing weddings this year, with our last one to ring in the New Year tomorrow night!  Happy Holidays and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2017!

Celebrate: Eric + Blair

I had been waiting for this one. Right when gay marriage was legalized in Tennessee, I got a call from Eric to go to lunch.  I had my hopes up but didn’t want him to know it because I didn’t want to pressure him into thinking he had to ask me to do his wedding.  The moment he hinted at it I was filled with excitement and jumped on the opportunity!  I love these two men, as their kind souls and ridiculous humor clicks perfectly with my sense of honesty and sarcasm.  It was such a fun year getting to work side by side with them to make this day beautifully minimal and classic, and about uniting a family.  I’ll miss this time together!

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!

Celebrate: Amber + Will

One of my favorite moments with these two had nothing to do with their wedding at all.  In fact, I was working a different wedding, and heading into the front entrance of a large hotel downtown.  Walking towards me and laughing were two people with ridiculous hats on backwards and sideways, a sun tan and a buzz from the local beer festival; it was Amber and Will, laughing and having a good time – they were just as surprised to see me! It is these organic moments of seeing my couples having fun and loving life that makes me remember why I do this.  Because watching two people truly in love and having fun is what it’s all about.  Needless to say, they had an awesome party with a packed dance floor!
