•2018• - what a year it’s been! if you told me this time last year that I’d be moving to Memphis in August or that I’d do five weddings in a little over a month while traveling across the state, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. . . I wouldn’t have believed a lot of things you could have told me this time last year, and I think that’s been the best thing about this year: growth. 2018 was a year of growth for me, from my business to my marriage to my faith and beyond. moving away from home - like really away - was surprisingly seamless. adjusting to life in a new city was pretty easy. making the wedding magic happen from three hours away wasn’t as ridiculous as I thought it might be. . . there have been so many evidences of the Lord’s grace in my life this year. my husband is working toward building us a better future, I’m in the best health that I’ve seen in a long time (possibly ever), and we’re learning to lean into the Lord for all of our needs. . . I posted in November that I was taking some time over the holiday season to rest and reflect and refocus - and I did. what’s come from that is a peace and clarity about my next steps and what the beginning of 2019 will look like. the Lord has whispered to me several times that this next year is going to be transformational, and the first step of that is letting go of Tailored Events. . . this isn’t goodbye forever, but it’s a see y’all later for now. as I prayed my way back to Memphis after Christmas, I felt the Spirit say the words “limitless faith” to my soul. so, that’s how I’m diving into 2019 - with limitless faith. I love you all dearly and I’m so thankful to have shared this journey with you! I am keeping my account and website active, but to keep up with all the new things, check out my personal account @taylor.orlando. . . “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ”. - Philippians 1:6 . . Happy New Year, friends! 🎉🎊✨ at Memphis, Tennessee

the face of pure J ❄️Y for this snow we’re seeing in memphis 😍 . but, if I’m honest, joy hasn’t been at the top of my emotions list this week. owning a business is hard, growing it is harder, and doing it all while working a full time job is even harder still. I love myself most when I’m creating, coordinating, and collaborating, but sometimes I have to say “no”...and I really struggle with that. . . I struggle with saying “no” because I don’t want to let anyone down, because I want to be the girl who does it all, because I want to only give time and energy to things I feel like doing at the time. but, God says that we need to rest. he also says that we need to put H I M and H I S kingdom first. that’s where the true joy lies - in H I M. the joy I chase is fleeting, like these snow flurries. and, when I have to actively say “no” to doing the things I feel like give me the most joy, I feel confused and angry that I can’t do it all or have it all or be it all. and then He reminds me that the obligations He’s given me are a priority, the work He’s given me is a priority, but most importantly HE is a priority. . . it’s hard to see the true priorities and joy when you’re focused on self-serving priorities and joy. here’s the really, really good part, though: He does not take away those things that give us joy; He instead asks us to invite him into the little joys of our lives. He says, “daughter, don’t you know that I want to do things things with you? Don’t you know that I gave you these joys for a reason? Don’t you know that I am the one who created these joys within you? Let me enjoy them with you”. . . when it feels like you have to say “no” when you really want to say “yes”, choose instead to say “yes, Lord, here I am”. He will continue to bring you joy, in fact, He will bring you h i m s e l f in those moments. . . so, with wedding season behind me, I’m taking some time for the rest of this year to rest, seek the kingdom, find the joy, and invite the Lord in. I cannot wait to share what we find along the way. ❤️ at Memphis, Tennessee

The Bentleys 💕 . probably my best wedding yet - the design, the space, the people. not a bad way to close our wedding season 2018. ☺️ . shoutout to the dream team @thecordelle @andrewmortonphoto @djduggin + @mk_higgs for making yesterday perfect ✨ at The Cordelle

the best throwbacks include the dreamiest details 🌿 . the weather totally did not cooperate with us, but this day was still beautiful. plus, their squad sang rocky top so loud, the power went out 😂 . things don’t always go as planned, but there is always sunshine to be found behind the clouds 🌤✨ at Battle Mountain Farm

snuggle up! it’s going to be a cold weekend ❄️ . these cuties tie the knot on saturday and I again find myself asking the question, “how has the time flown by so quickly?!”. I have loved every second of working with Jamia and Zack and will 100% ugly cry (in the background, of course) at their wedding. 😭🙌🏻 . this “job” is pretty sweet. 💕 at Tennessee

I followed Katherine around all afternoon repeatedly shouting “DAMN, GIRL!”. you have to speak truth, right? 🤷🏼‍♀️😍 . yesterday was a dream, and I’m so thankful I got to be a small part of it. a huge thanks to my girl @lindsey.ohalloran for being my right hand, to @nashvillesymphony for a gorgeous backdrop (and for Schuyler, a planner’s best friend!), to @laphotographi.e and @peerlessweddings for capturing the day, to @hermitagehotel and Carly for a seamless reception, to @branchingoutfloralsnashville for the gorgeous florals, to @questevents_nashville for the dramatic drapery, to @davidbangell and quartet for the ceremony music, to @dulcedessertsnashville for the beautiful and delicious cake, to @hellotrolley for the adorable getaway, to @whiteroomlebanon for the perfectly “Katherine” @callablanchedress gown, to @ajoure_floral for the custom crown, and to @djdanco for keeping the party going strong! 🙌🏻❤️ . the dream couple, the dream venues, the dream team - not a bad way to spend the first weekend of November, y’all. not a bad way, at all. 😌💕 at Schermerhorn Symphony Center

a peek into my weekend...I’m home! 🖤 . currently sitting in my car (found a free street spot downtown so obvs dancing as well) caffeinating and grooming my eyebrows because #lifeofaneventplanner. 😂 . cannot wait to get the beautiful @duchessvanduchess married off tomorrow! it feels so good to be back in my city!❤️💜💛 . ((but for real, if I see one more tractor full of woo girls I may voluntarily go for a dip in the Cumberland ☠️)) at Nashville, Tennessee

it’s officially November and that means it’s officially holiday season! 🙌🏻 . while I won’t be putting up my Christmas tree just yet, I am so ready for all the festive things this season brings ❤️ . this wedding day look from the Burks wedding gives me some holiday vibes...would you believe their wedding was in August?! this photo is a perfect example of how you can incorporate seemingly seasonal details into your wedding - though his tie is a deeper hue, which we would likely associate with fall or winter, when it’s paired with a summery bout and pinstripe suit, it becomes a classic combo, wearable in any season. 🤵🏻 . don’t feel limited to seasonal color palettes or accents - if you LOVE it, DO it! (and let #yourbridalbff show you how) 😉💁🏼‍♀️

here’s a little sunshine for your Tuesday 😌☀️✨ . “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." - Revelation 21:3-4 . . better things are yet to come. hang in there, y’all. 💕

hugging my brides first thing in the morning is one of my favorite things about wedding day, especially when they’ve been friends/sisters for 8+ years 💕 . y’all, I’m struggling, and could use a hug myself. whew! it’s day 10 of my 12 day work week, I’ve been slacking on social media, and I still have to fit in two more workouts to finish my gym challenge 😅 . I like to keep it real, and here’s the realest real I’ve got for you right now: hustling sucks sometimes. it’s okay to not feel super connected or particularly excited about your hustle sometimes. it doesn’t mean you don’t care, and it sure as hell doesn’t mean you’re not good enough. it means you just need to r e s t. maybe you don’t get to physically rest (like sleeping for 3 days), but maybe it means you miss an IG post or two, or that you respond to an email in 2 days instead of 2 seconds. IT’S. ALL. GONNA. BE. OKAY. 👍🏻 . rest how you can when you can, and keep on going, even if it feels slower or different than usual. your pace doesn’t define your hustle - YOU DO. 💪🏻👊🏻🙌🏻☕️💁🏼‍♀️🧟‍♀️☠️💕😘🎉 . . . . 📸: @kellyginn22
