Picture Perfect

Well, we don't get a gold star for updating our blog regularly...but you'll be glad we waited until we had something good to share!!  We've been busy this spring planning and planning, and finally we've had the
chance to experience some of the fabulous weddings we've been working on.  As always, I will share more photos as they come my way but for now, feast your eyes on these wonderful images from last weekend.

We were so fortunate to be a part of the planning and coordination of Paige and John's wedding at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee.  If you aren't familiar with Blackberry,
take some time to go through their website.  It's an incredible property that set the stage for a personal,
intimate, private, family-oriented and breathtakingly beautiful wedding weekend for Paige and John, who traveled from Chicago to be married there.

Here is a photo of the newlyweds after the carriage ride they took from 
the ceremony to the cocktail reception.

Here's a shot of them cutting the cake, which we brought in from The Art of Cake in Chapel Hill, NC.
It was a lovely rendition of a Martha Stewart cake.  Hopefully I'll have more photos later.  You can
see me in the corner in my blue dress, watching carefully to make sure they don't need help!
 Here's the gorgeous couple at the end of the ceremony.  The bride's mother is a fabulous interior designer, so the decor of the event was magnificent and detailed.  This wrought iron arbor was brought in from High Point, North Carolina and decorated by an amazing florist from New York City.
Here's the blushing bride and her proud father.  I've known them a very long time, so it was extra special to see her walk down the aisle and to be a part of her big day.
 Here's a shot of the venue for cocktail and the reception, from afar.  The barn is was just stunning inside - dripping with flowers and candlelight.  There was a big tent adjacent to the bar, where dancing, dessert,
and late night snacking took place.
Cocktail hour.  You can get a sense for what a *perfect* day it was weather-wise and otherwise.  We loved working with the entire Blackberry team, Ashley Moss in particular, and with vendors who were new to us, including Dan and Natalie Watson of Watson Studios (photography), Julio Jimenez (florist), Chariots of Hire, Bobby Yang (incredible musicians), Sound Ventures, and All Occasions party rental.  All in all, it was a wonderful weekend, and not one that we will soon forget.

Congratulations to Paige and John!
