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: Sam & Joey

I could tell from our first phone call that Sam had a free spirit and that she couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle to meet Joey.  These two really have beautiful, creative souls that are warm and welcoming, and you could see that throughout each of their family members that helped put together this beautiful soiree!  I truly love how their personal style showed through – I mean, the dress still kills me it’s so amazing, we felt so honored to be a part of this beautiful day!

Celebrate: Jenny & Chuck

Jenny and Chuck are the quiet but thoughtful sort of couple that are just perfect for each other.  They’re both very simple, but intentional in all their choices and I loved that about them.

The morning of their wedding, we all woke up and saw that the ground was covered in snow.  It didn’t matter that one week prior it was 70+ degrees out, in Nashville, you never know what is coming!  But that didn’t even phase these two.  While the snow melted just in time to take a few pictures outdoors, their wedding was a perfect and flawless affair with close family in friends. Congrats!

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!

Celebrate: Leslie + Corey

It isn’t uncommon that I only get to meet the groom at the rehearsal, and this was no exception.  So when I met Corey and his fun-loving personality, and I could just see how it was so perfect for Leslie, I knew this was going to be a beautiful marriage.  In fact, watching them take photos, I could quite literally see Leslie glowing in the sunlight, as the sky came perfectly through the trees and lit her beautiful (and annoyingly perfect at all times) hair like a halo.  The details that she chose were just lovely, and it was clear her taste was top notch all around!  Such a beautiful wedding that we were happy to be a part of!

Celebrate: Kylie + Colin

One of the coolest parts of Nashville is the history that lives in this city.  In the midst of a regular street, you can come upon the most beautiful glimpse into the past.  Kylie and Collin’s wedding was at the historic Riverwood Mansion, where the property transports you to another time full of seclusion and greenery.

Kylie and Collin recently moved to Nashville and are taking the city straight on, with energy and enthusiasm and love to conquer all!  It is their amazing spirit that made this day even brighter – even when we thought there might be rain, they kept moving forward like nothing was going to stop them.  It is so refreshing to see such laughter and excitement – a gorgeous wedding that is going to turn into a beautiful marriage.  So honored to be there to witness it all!

Celebrate: Lindsay + Bobby

Right from the first phone call I knew these two were going to be an amazing time, and I was right, all the way down to the cocktails!  Working in the liquor industry has some perks, and this crowd knew how to party!

But it is the internal spirit of these two that was totally beautiful. In Nashville, there are pretty high odds of rain at any given time of year.  So when the forecast was showing 50% chance all wedding week, the two decided to take their chances and go ahead with Plan A all the way.  For them, there was no Plan B (ahem, we still had one up our sleeves), and that is the way they will continue to live their lives.  Walking right into the moment, smiles on their faces, rain or shine.

PS. It was a perfectly gorgeous day without even a rain drop!  Enjoy these sweet pics by Abigail Bobo Photography!
