Congrats Lisa and Josh

Lisa and Josh came from Huntsville to get married at Bella Reed Farm in Franklin, TN.  The farm is privately owned and operated as a horse farm.  There are beautiful fenced pastures, a pond with willows, and a great barn available for weddings and events.

The day started out with rain showers, but thankfully stopped in time for the outdoor ceremony.  The weather cooperated and photos were taken around the property.

The horses even came out for a visit with the bride.

The reception was held in a tent next to the house.  Everyone had a great time dancing...especially the groom.

Two Fat Men catering provided some great food followed by dessert by Dulce Desserts.

Website Launch Party - Huntsville

This past spring I had the pleasure of working on a website launch party for ARC Design Build Inc, a green remodeling company in Huntsville, AL.    The event was held at downtown Huntsville's most eclectic historic venue A.M.Booth's Lumberyard.  The venue is full of unique decor and indoor/outdoor spaces.



 Events by Elaine provided planning, decor and event staff. We used a simple, muted color scheme with candles and some limited flowers. Here are some of the photos from my camera phone:


We filled these large cylinder vases with translucent gems and put lights inside for a great nighttime effect

We used simple flowers in the gold family of colors


We filled two dozen jars with candles and used them to light the walkway in the venue.

All the catering was provided by Emma's Tea Room.  The food they provided was fabulous and the presentation was better than most I have seen. 

The menu included a fruit and cheese tower made of glass shelving and vases with fruits cascading down. Fresh vegetable platters with dips.  Homemade crackers served with a variety of spreads.  Carving station  roast beef served with small sourdough rolls and gourmet mustards and aoli spreads.  Warm stuffed tomatos filled with cheese. Warm grilled vegetable skewers served with flavored dips and oils on the side.Warm homemade falafels with yogurt sauce on the side. Little freshly made fruit tartlets.  Brownie bites with freshly made whipped cream and berries chocolate covered strawberries.






In addition to the dessert by the caterer, there was a custom cake in honor of the event.  Look at this impressive cake by Slice at a Time.  Everything is edible except the computer screen, which is covered with edible decorations.  The actual cake (which includes the laptop and briefcase) is white chocolate and chocolate mud cake with layers of swiss meringue buttercream.  The coffee cup is all cake with fondue icing and raspberry fudge filling.

Spotlight: Huntsville - Monte Sano Lodge

In addition to Middle TN, I also offer event planning services to the North Alabama and Huntsville, AL area. This town is 2 hours south of Nashville and has many beautiful settings for weddings. One of my favorites is also my favorite place to walk or hike - Monte Sano State Park.

The park sits at the top of a mountain and has beautiful overlooks and gorgeous woods. The newly built lodge is a great location for a natural, outdoorsy wedding. The rustic interior and fireplaces make a relaxed setting for a great wedding.

The lodge can hold up to 200 people for a reception.  The rental includes use of the kitchen, chairs and tables. Smaller rooms can be rented instead of the entire lodge.
