Michelle and Cade ~ An August Date to Remember

Greetings ~

There is nothing that makes me happier than to see wedding photos in my inbox from fabulous photographers!  And this week is no exception.  Michelle and Cade were married at Kings’ Chapel in Arrington TN – once their ceremony was complete they were off to Vanderbilt Legends Clubhouse in a 1964 Sunbeam.  Here are some of their MAGICAL photos courtesy of Complete – I think these will tell the story far better than any words!!

So while I was busy in East Africa the team back at home base was busy creating some MAGICAL weddings.  We just received images from Michelle and Scott’s sweet affair courtesy of Rob Mould Photography. And of course we knew we just had to share!  Many thanks to the ever fabulous Ralph Griggs for officiating this ceremony. Enjoy

The Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Fair

This past Sunday, July 21st, Krisie and I (Mary Ann), had the opportunity to work The Perfect Wedding Guide bridal fair! As interns, Courtney gave us the daunting task of creating a Great Gatsby themed tablescape all on our own to represent The Carousel House Wedding and Event venue. A Magical Affair helps out with the in-house coordination there, so we were super excited to be able to represent this venue with our table design! About a month prior to the show, you could say we were pretty nervous when Courtney all of the sudden told us that we would be designing this table, renting all the supplies, and working the booth at the show without her help. We weren’t even sure where to start. We immediately logged on to Pinterest (of course) and started getting ideas and creating a design board. After countless days in the office conjuring up ideas, we ventured over to  Liberty Party Rentals and ordered all of our supplies. Krisie and I thought it would be awesome to add a touch of DIY, so we decided to create our own centerpieces with the help of Chocolate Rose florist. It was so much fun taking field trips to Hobby Lobby and making our own black vases and gold glitter candles, even if we did leave the office covered in sparkles from head to toe. The bridal fair turned out to be a huge success! It was amazing to see all of our hard design work and this vision we had in our heads for a month come to life! We had so many brides that loved the table design and wanted to consider Carousel House as their wedding venue. Check out these photos that portray how everything came together from start to finish!

Happy Birthday AMERICA!!

 

Greetings –

As some of you know my family looks a little different!  My boys are both adopted from East Africa and so on this 4th of July (as I spend it explaining to them about the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness) I am reminded just how incredibly blessed I am to have had the opportunity to create my family via international adoption!  So from my most amazing international adoption family to each and every one of you I wish you a MAGICAL 4th of July.  May today not go unnoticed for what it truly is and may you take a moment and take a look around at the amazing blessings you have right in front of you!!  Many thanks to Scoobie’s Photographic Images for coming to Florida with me and capturing this image!!

Daniel and Stephanie- A Magical Wednesday Wedding

The very first wedding I (Mary Ann) had the pleasure of helping out with was Daniel and Stephanie’s intimate Wednesday wedding on May 15th at the Delta Pavilion inside Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center. They are living proof that you don’t need to book a Saturday wedding to make it truly magical! I came across these photos from Matt Andrews Photography and had to share! Daniel and Stephanie said “I Do” in front of a small group of family and friends then had dinner at Old Hickory Steakhouse. See for yourself how gorgeous this bride and groom’s magical day turned out to be!
