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.

Tabi and Turk ~ A September to Remember

Greetings ~

Oh I am sooo excited to have these photos!  Many thanks to Celladora Wedding Photography for sharing them with us.  Tabi and Turk were married in a sweet ceremony inside the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in the heart of Nashville TN.  Once the ceremony was complete the guests were whisked away to the cocktail hour so that the ceremony area could be transformed into the wedding reception of their dreams.  I believe I will let the photos speak for themselves.

Well there you have it!  Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs!!!  Many many thanks to ALL the amazing vendors who made this day a MAGICAL one

Menu Monday ~

Greetings ~

Since coming back from East Africa last month I have had the fabulous opportunity to attend a number of tastings for some up coming weddings.  I have shared the photos on facebook and instagram but wanted to make  sure you my faithful readers were able to see all the yummy goodness.

Choosing a menu is hard and tastings are a great way to see how the food looks, how it will be presented and what it tastes like!  Here is a sampling of some of my recent tastings
