Greetings ~

If you have followed this blog for awhile or if you know me (Courtney) personally then you already know the LOVE I have for East Africa.  Well now you to can LOVE the countries that mean so much to me!

While Kenneth (the husband) and I were at Catersource last month we came upon a new company – The East African Petal Company – and of course I couldn’t be more excited to share them with you!!!

This company is employing women, protecting wildlife, AND supplying gorgeous petals for weddings and events.  I mean really what more do you need to know?!?!?!

Here are a few photos I grabbed while at their booth.  Want to learn more about them?  Visit them on line – The East African Petal Company

Cinderella Inspired ~

Today is a big day at the AMA office! Walt Disney Pictures release the newest addition of Cinderella and we couldn’t be more excited.  Coming from a background with the Disney company we thought it only fitting that we take some time out of our week and create a Cinderella Inspired photoshoot!

So with a wave of a magic wand (or a few calls to awesome vendors) we were off for the transformation!!

It Takes A Village ~

Greetings ~

As a mom of 2 small boys I hear that comment often and it really is true.  It does take a village!!  But that same comment applies to the wedding world as well.  Without an amazing “village” of vendors weddings, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs and the likes of other special events could not happen as well as they do! Yesterday was no exception as we ended a 2 wedding weekend we headed straight into the 1st Sumner County Venue Crawl.  An opportunity for bride’s to come out alongside their grooms and family and friends and experience 16 venues across the county.  We were out at The Barn on Willis Branch  in Goodlettesville.  And while the rain came down our amazing village loaded in and set up for an afternoon experience.  We are so grateful for the many brides and vendors who came out from 12-4!  We sincerely hope they enjoyed the Barn and the experience as much as we enjoyed creating it.  Here are a few photos from the day.

Opulence in Orchid – Our Entry into The Special Event 2014

Greetings ~

Hello and welcome to 2014!!  It sure entered like gangbusters here at the AMA offices!!  Towards the very end of 2013 we were tasked with creating a tabletop design for the 2014 Special Event tradeshow and conference coming to Nashville Jan 7th – 11th.  Now with the holidays being in the mix I’m not gonna lie we were a wee bit worried about creating an amazing design.  But alas when you get a call like that there is nothing else to do but say yes.  So Krisie started right in on the design and brought along some of our favorite vendors to help bring Opulence in Orchid to life!

We were beyond thrilled when we learned on Jan 8th that our table had WON in the category of tabletop design under $1,000 per table.  So now that the dust has settled and everyone has left the tradeshow floor and gone home we wanted to share with you some of the stunning photos courtesy of Scoobie’s Photographic Images and JMF.Photography – we hope you enjoy!!
