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: 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: 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: 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.

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: 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!
