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!

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: Lexie and Kieran

This family is so special to me because they come as relatives of another one of my beautiful brides from 2014.  It is so special to work with multiple members in a family, as I feel like I get a true understanding of who these amazing people are and what values they hold.  Not only did we get to work with the stunning bride, Lexie, but her mother was a great part of making this day so special for these young lovebirds; even the rain couldn’t take the sunshine away!  Thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful day!

Celebrate: Ladies in Love

This post is long overdue, back from March when we had the joy of watching Alyssa and Kristin get married.  Alyssa and Kristen put a lot of faith into us.  They were willing to work with us right after Christina made her move to Nashville, and boy are we lucky they did!  Because this wedding had an all-star team of vendors that we are lucky to have worked with!

Although this post is delayed, we can’t think of a better time to share these photos than now, when our nation has made strides in allowing marriage be open for everyone, including our amazing friends in the LGBT community.  Of course we have had the honor of celebrating with our Californian clients, and we look forward to working with many Tennesseans as well!

It was a year and a half in the making for this special day, and even more powerful because these ladies are another example of why we love and support gay marriage!

Celebrate: Erika and Sheldon!

The story behind this lovely couple is so inspirational. They didn’t meet in some high-end club and catch one anothers’ eye from across the room, they didn’t meet at a cocktail party, and they definitely didn’t meet using online dating… they met one another fighting for our country. That’s right, they met one another across the world serving in the United States Army. Despite the circumstances, they managed to find love amidst the battle.

I am so honored to be a part of such a beautiful marriage!

Celebrate: Anna & Cam!

I love downtown Nashville. It has such an amazing vibe to it; it’s city, it’s country, it’s clean!!! And one of the cool spots right in the middle of it all is War Memorial.  This is where Anna and Cameron had their first date, and I was so excited when Anna asked me to be her coordinator for her wedding.

From the start to the finish, I loved working on this event and had fun with everyone who was involved.  Cameron is joining a truly special family because Anna’s mom and dad had the kind of warmth and energy made that made the day an absolute delight!  We were so lucky to have absolutely beautiful skies out on this mid October day – it could not have been more perfect!

I’m so happy for this lovely couple!

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.

Celebrate: A Whirlwind Romance

Katie and Jon.  I knew I was meant to be their planner the second I opened my inbox and I saw Katie’s email.  The lightness and joyful spirit that was so apparent in even just her emails, had me hooked from the start.  Even her subject line “good ol’ google search” is something I’ll never forget.  And then we had our first call and we were both sold!

Katie and Jon got engaged and married in a quick 6 months because they both had so much going on between school and work and life, so we were quick to hop to decision making.  I had a blast this entire adventure – and I say adventure because they introduced me to Sewanee, TN, a unique little town hidden off the highway.  I was blessed with this beautiful couple and their young, boastful love for one another.  They will always hold a special place in my heart!

Celebrate: Megan & Tommy in Historic Franklin

The second I met sweet, adorable Megan, I knew we would be instant friends!  This girl radiates love and enthusiasm, I just couldn’t wait to meet her fiancé, Tommy, and hear more about their love story.

They chose the beautiful Historic Franklin to share their vows.  The quaint church ceremony followed by a fabulous, high energy reception at The McConnell House, was the perfect recipe to start off their marriage.  And even the little bit of rain during their first look was bound to bring good luck to these two, because the day couldn’t have been any more perfect! Oh, and did I mention that Jeni’s Ice Cream Truck was there?!  We’ll just say it was a delish 🙂
