Natural Minimal Wedding

quiet moment bride groom.jpeg

When I met Whitney, I knew her wedding was going to be wonderful. She was the sweetest bride with a laid-back approach to planning. Together we brought her simply stunning concept to life. From greenery on the tables to rectangular plates with slate blue napkins, everything was clean and minimal, yet romantic. Did you see that amazing greenery wall? Working with the bride and her mom was truly a joy!

(Be prepared for photo overload. I couldn’t choose which ones I liked most and there were so many beautiful ones..)

The bride was breathtaking in her lace dress and with her wild, lush bouquet.

After the ceremony, guests relaxed on the porch while we setup a beautiful reception with long wooden farm tables. Every guest had their name and a note at their place setting.

New 2019 Offerings

As each year goes by I try to evaluate what worked and what I can do better. I look for what couples have been requesting and what isn’t working any more. Here are the highlights of some of the new things I am offerings for 2019.

2019.jpg
  • Elopement and All-Inclusive
    I have partnered with Jubilee Hills Estate in Lewisburg to offer elopement packages and full all-inclusive packages. You can have an elopement style wedding with flowers, catering, and more for you and 30 guests. (You know how much I love small, intimate weddings)

    You can also book a full all-inclusive package where we handle everything - food, drinks, flowers, and much more. View more info

  • Flower, Flowers, and more Flowers.
    This past year many of my brides have wanted to be super involved with the flowers. So, I created a DIY flower bundle. I will handle ordering, receiving, and processing the flowers and then bring them to you for arranging. You save time and money. Info and Pricing

(I even expanded my flower beds and may have some local grown wildflowers. Fingers crossed)

  • Information
    I frequently answer the same questions repeatedly for brides. So I created a resource library with downloads and printables. It’s Free! Get Instant Access

Are there any new services or products that would be appealing to you? Drop us a Note

Intimate Holiday Wedding

I had the pleasure of working with Kelsey and Jeremy for their small holiday wedding. This intimate celebration had 30 guests and was perfection!

With red and white colors for their flowers and lots of greenery, the setting was perfect for a holiday themed celebration. Their cakes came from New York to Nashville and were amazing. Guests enjoyed chocolate chip cake and confetti cake truffles. Look at those cute pinecone cake toppers!
