Celebrate: Kelly + Ren

It is so much fun to work a new venue, especially one that isn’t even done being built yet!  Kelly and Ren chose the Old Glory Distilling Company while it was still missing walls, and just trusted that it was going to turn out amazing – and it did.  This takes the kind of client with a little vision and a lot of trust, not to mention a free spirit to go with the flow.

And that is how we would describe this wedding.  With free spirited florals and classic neutral tones, mixed with the modernity of cement floors and a band made for a party – this wedding was a melting pot of all things amazing! So in awe by our teams hard work and the team of vendors who brought it all together, I think it was a pretty spectacular night for this fun and vibrant bride and groom!

Celebrate: Jennifer + Tom

My California roots were itching today, as this special couple comes all the way from right outside my home town!  California girl meets boy from the South.  Love finds a second chance sometimes, and for these two well-matched lovebirds, today was the day.  A few of my favorites moments were these …

  1. We had a true family table – bride, groom, and three kids in the round, just like at home over a family style service meal (if only all our home cooking was as good as Chef & I!)
  2. When the bride said “I don’t know if I’ve ever felt this loved, but today, I believe it” (tear…).
  3. When the groom excused his poor dancing skills, yet still performed his practiced box steps with such precision – only a Dr. could look so focused!
  4. Lastly, when four girls, including the bride’s daughter, performed a very special dance to “Love Shack”!  It was the perfect party starter!

It was the most perfect, first day of spring. And the perfect first day, to unite this family.

 

 

Celebrate: Amanda + Bill

Ah, Amanda and Bill!  These two just make me smile … maybe it’s because (in Amanda’s words) few people can pull off a velvet purple jacket, like Bill did, to their rehearsal dinner.  These two are the perfect combination of laid-back and fun – wanting things to be beautiful, but not stressing over the details (they left that to us!).  It was such a beautiful day with the sun shining and their small A-frame Chapel ceremony, with a large reception at City Winery.  The band was killing it and these two were glowing – you could see the awe in their faces as they soaked in each moment of the day through the end of the night.   It was truly beautiful.

Celebrate: Mansa + Fred

From the moment I got the phone call, I knew Mansa’s wedding was going to be so much fun!  She is one of those people with an infectious laugh; no matter the scenario, she is going to take things in stride, laugh about it, think about it … think about it some more … and then stick right by her decision and not look back!  This was one great party, and I was so thrilled to work with Mansa over the past year to see this day come to a beautiful fruition!  Congrats Mansa & Fred – you make a perfect couple!

Celebrate: Hannah & Jessup

I knew I wanted to work with these two the moment I heard their names.  I mean, Hannah and Jessup?!  How perfect is that!  I believe I even commented on it in my phone interview with these two Chicagoans… And so our fate was sealed, and we spent all of 2015 working on this amazing modern, rooftop wedding in the heart of Nashville!  Their Broadway nuptials had everybody dancing til the band stop, and they still begged for more!  It is their amazingly easy-going, warm-hearted and hilarious spirits, that made this party so memorable and brought together their closest friends.  A big thanks to Hannah and Jessup for letting us be a part of this perfect – barely drizzly – day!
