Recently engaged couples... where you at!? Would you rather sweat 😓 or be cold 🥶 on your wedding day?? There’s always a few exceptions each year who have beautiful 75 degree weather, but not very many!! I’m happy to hang out with you and sweat all day, but when it’s 30 outside, we are going to need some short breaks to thaw out from time to time. My fingers were about to snap off while I took this one. 🌬 at Twelve Oaks Mansion

Anyone else feeling more accomplished this year already? I made some big business moves and made some big calls this week and it feels amazing. What do you want to change this year about your life or business?? at Hendersonville, Tennessee

The most perfect bouquet beautifully adorned with a photo of grandma (on her wedding day I believe). I couldn’t think of a sweeter way to honor her. Side note: Give me all the garden roses, peonies, and ranunculus. All day long. I planted peonies and ranunculus around my house this fall hoping to have some spring blossoms of color. If they look half as good as these, I’d be thrilled. Bouquet by: @enchantedfloristtn Venue: @riverwoodmansion at Riverwood Mansion

Let’s talk about favorite Nashville wedding venues for a quick second... what’s yours? and why? I’m totally obsessed with @riverwoodmansion ! It’s absolutely stunning inside & out, it has rich history, it’s only 20 minutes from my house, and the staff is the best in the business! A good time is always had and amazing photos are guaranteed!!! at Riverwood Mansion

Gratitude 🙏🏼 I am so thankful. I want to express my appreciation to everyone that has come into my life through this passion and soul-driven business I’ve grown over the past 6 years. Every day I strive to return the kindness and grace that you’ve showed me, and spread it to others. It blows my mind that this is my 5th year of receiving this award and being in the top 4% of wedding professionals on theknot. Thank you to every single person who took time to write about their experience working with me. You’ve all touched my heart so deeply. Cheers to 2019! I LOVE y’all!! 🍾💕 at Hendersonville, Tennessee

This holiday party design could easily be mistaken for a winter wedding celebration 🍾 ❄️ I’ve been really blessed to be collaborating with @southernvineco recently. She’s an absolute boss babe and genius designer. She has years upon years of wedding planning/designing experience and also designs luxury home interior spaces. Check her out!! Also, @acmenashville - can’t wait to work with you again this year for Rachel & Hayden’s spring wedding. 🌿 at Acme Feed & Seed

Just wrapped up my 2018 wedding season with a wedding in Pittsburgh (shout out to my hometown 🖤💛)... now I’m back at home in balmy (63 degrees) Nashville and ready to finally share how amazingly beautiful this year truly was. at Omni Nashville Hotel

Happy Holidays and cheers to a very happy new year. 🥂 We are headed north for my last wedding of the year in Pittsburgh this Saturday. And just my luck and the way to end the worst year in a long time - I broke down in a high traffic area on Sunday and today I found out that I need a new transmission in my van that’s only 3 yrs old. (( $4,000 )) and now I have to rent a van to take to PA. I’m ready to spend some quality time with family and kiss 2018 goodbye. 😘 at Durham Farms

One of my absolute favorite wedding venues in the south with one of my favorite couples ever - although their wedding isn’t until 2019. We had the best time at their engagement session... you’ll soon see how we took it up a notch. 💃🏼🍸🍾 at Riverwood Mansion

Seeing your wedding set-up for the first time is an emotional experience for most brides at @cjsoffthesquare . They exceed all expectations and go over the top with their fabulous designs. I loved @mo_sowder ‘s reaction. Pure joy. at CJ's Off the Square
