Celebrate: Evie’s 1st Birthday!

I will never forget this adorable 1 year old’s sweet day! Her mom and I had so much fun planning all the little details for this ONEderland day! Little did we know that this would be my last event pre-covid, and that we were so lucky to get these kiddos together before the world all crumbled!

Now sweet Evie is 2yo and hopefully about to see her little friends once again!

It’s not very often that we get to take on the smaller celebrations, so it was so fun for us to get to help out with this sister-of-the-bride plan an impromptu lunch during their getaway in Nashville!   The moment we had a call with Jilane, we knew we were going to love putting this intimate gathering together!   With personalized gift bags with local goodies like Olive & Sinclair chocolates, a little Jack Daniels and treats from Thistle Farms, and a three course lunch, these ladies were all set to sit back and relax (despite the summer heat!).

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!

Rachel & Ryan, a very special day

We tend to get a lot of clients who live out of state.  It definitely makes our job super rewarding because we get to work hard on behalf of the couple to make sure we are taking care of things in their place, but it is also sad because you wonder if you’ll ever see these amazing people again.  Of course there is social media and I fondly see some of my couples evolve in their lives, but it’s funny how you can go from spending a year talking to someone on a weekly basis and then in a flash, it’s over.

Rachel & Ryan will always hold a huge place in my heart.  Several months into planning, unbeknownst to any of us, I got pregnant and had a due date that was only one day before their wedding date!  My heart sunk the day I found out because I didn’t know how I was going to tell Rachel and my hands shook as I made the call.  Never have I met someone with such grace and calm; she took the news in stride and was more inquisitive towards how I was doing than she was concerned about her wedding.  It was truly amazing and I am eternally grateful.

Taking after his mother, my baby also (apparently) likes to show up early to events, and arriving to this world with 21 days to spare, there was no doubt in my mind that I was going to be present on Rachel and Ryan’s wedding day!  There is no place that I would have rather been that day, than helping celebrate and witness the union of Rachel and Ryan.  Such an amazing team of people made this day absolutely gorgeous.  So thrilled to have been a part of it all.
