You may remember some of the tweaks we have done over the years: Our new blog last year and our new website a few years back.  Although we have loved these changes along the way, I couldn’t be more thrilled with our newly redefined brand identity from Megan Martin Creative.  We are days away from […]

I have been so fortunate to work with some of the sweetest couples and their parents this year and this wedding was no exception! From start to finish, everyone was excited and involved and that makes my job that much more enjoyable! Jennifer, her mom and I worked to plan and design this early fall Saddle Woods Farm […]

I loved this couple.  Their laughter is infectious and her family is a riot!  We had so much fun planning the details of her wedding and ensuring this day was perfect for these sweethearts.  From thoughtful details to the best FOB speech in my tenure, this wedding brought tears to my eyes more than once. […]

When a beautiful medical student meets a freshly-pressed attorney, magic happens, right?! See for yourself! The way they look at each other makes me smile;  the way that they kept their heads about them and didn’t get bogged down with minuscule details; the way she studied for exams and he built his practice all while […]

This might be one of my all time favorite wedding day pictures EVER. I am so flattered when a bride loves my style: when they want something they know I can create and that allows flowers to speak for themselves. I met Kati and Jonathan while helping Meagan Fisher, of MFisher Imagery, style their engagement session.  Working […]

You couldn’t ask for a sweeter couple than Nate and Heather.  Sometimes, “working” a friend’s wedding can be challenging.  You are juggling many responsibilities while also trying to enjoy the event.  With Clay in the wedding as a groomsmen and myself acting as coordinator/floral designer/guest, we ran ourselves crazy the week of the wedding ensuring […]

These New York natives wanted all that Nashville had to offer on their big day!  From live music to Loveless Cafe’s legendary biscuits, they wanted their guests to have a true Southern experience!  Starting with The Loveless Barn, they worked their way through a top notch vendor list, including a fantastic band, beautiful florals and […]

I love their story.  I love the way he looks at her.  I love how her nose crinkles when she smiles and his elaborate proposal.  I enjoyed how laid back they were and how excited they were to begin their life together. I appreciated that they understood the value of reputable, proven wedding professionals. With […]

  The weather this past Memorial Day weekend was absolutely perfect.  Not too hot, a light breeze and beautiful light.  What better time to host a nautical wedding than on a traditionally lake-friendly weekend!? This bridal party was such a great group!  They were so happy for Elizabeth and Justin and excited to celebrate with […]

This year is just beginning; it is sure to hold incredible projects and couples and I am so excited to get started.  But I think 2015 deserves a proper sendoff.  Some of the floral designs I created this year pushed me creatively and encouraged me to find my niche.  I have triumphed through some difficult projects with some […]
