I honestly love when weddings are a true family affair, and I get to know the whole clan. You know you get close when the week after the wedding the mother of the bride texts you that she misses you and asks when we can do it all again (to which I reminded her she has a second daughter!)!
This duo was a ton of fun to plan with, from their energy to their positive attitudes to their exquisite taste! I am definitely going to miss them too and couldn’t be more thrilled with these gorgeous pictures! Until the next one!
Can I please just say how GOOD it felt to be at this wedding?! It’s like life was finally back to “normal” and this couple couldn’t have been any luckier … the gates of events finally opened up in Nashville and we had a party to remember! Over a year of planning and lots of questioning if we were making the right decisions and what would the social gathering climate actually look like … and we made it. And it was gorgeous and a glorious weekend and the most amazing weather, so thrilled we made the right call and got to fully celebrate these two! Grateful to have been a part of their journey and sad to not get to see them as their life together begins back on my beloved west coast. Best of luck to the Scotts!!
Oh 2018. You were one of those trick years. We weren’t really sure where you were going come early spring, and then all of a sudden you turned into May, and then June, and then somehow it’s now December 28th. I really can’t tell you what happened to the last 6 months of my life and how I ended up in the present. It’s like a week is a day and a month is a week, everything keeps moving faster than me; if it wasn’t for living through strong seasonal changes here, I may not know half a year had flown by. And what a wonderful year for Christina Logan Design. I couldn’t be more grateful for the people we’ve met, the weddings and events that took place and the amazing support and help I’ve had along the way. It was truly a beautiful year (from what I can remember). Cheers to the start of a new one!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
Sometimes a whirlwind romance will just take you over! And Jessica and John are that exception. They met and just knew, married at the gorgeous Belle Meade Plantation a year later, with family and friends by their sides. I had such a fun time choosing all the details with Jessica and her mother, where we could focus on the pretty little details and watch an exquisite team of vendors pull it all together! It was a perfect day.
One of my favorite venues in town is Belle Meade Plantation. It is so classic and timeless, and the bright eyed bride came up with ideas that were a perfect contrast to bring together the old and new. I think we bonded because she lives in my beloved San Francisco, and I in their hometown of Nashville. Talking to her felt like I was at home part of the time.
With a gorgeous bride and handsome groom, Sarah and Will kept their styles traditional for this event. But the design, oh the beautiful design, brought in a bit of new with bright bold colors, and a bit of old with vintage napkins and gold silverware. It was a perfect blend of two families coming together to celebrate this union.
