Nashville Wedding Recap – Elizabeth & Jonathan

We knew we’d have fun with this wedding as soon as we met with Elizabeth and Jonathan. The two of them wanted their wedding to be both eclectic and elegant and we all but jumped for joy upon hearing the words “Anthropologie-inspired.” Photographer Phindy Studios did a wonderful job of catching this memorable feel on film as did the videographer, Full Frame Cinema.

Elizabeth made an absolutely stunning bride at the Christ Church Cathedral on October 1st. All floral arrangements and event design were created by Brocade Designs. The bride carried a pink and red bouquet of roses and ranunculus, wrapped in slate ribbon, a touch of lace, and finally topped with pink buttons. Her bridesmaids, in contrast, carried simple nosegay style bouquets of white hydrangea, white callas, and white spray roses.

The couple hosted their wedding reception at the chic rooftop venue, One Eleven. Guests were invited to leave them notes on these fun post cards as they entered the space—we especially loved this one!

With fifteen groomsmen and fifteen bridesmaids running around, there was absolutely a sense of family in the room. This fun crew was goofing around all night.

The cake, done by Dulce Desserts, was elegant and white, topped with the same beautiful blooms as the bride’s bouquet. The same whimsical buttons were even included.

And while the cake was delicious, many guests found their favorite sweet of the night to be a late night snack of milk and cookies, provided by their wonderful caterer Chef’s Market.

Since her wedding, Elizabeth has become an amazing calligrapher and you can check out her work at: http://www.hardinkcalligraphy.com/. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Hardin! Best wishes and we look forward to seeing the two of you around soon!

Changes are coming!

So far 2013 has been an incredible one! We’ve had the opportunity to create some amazing weddings already and are currently working on lots of fabulous events coming up later this year and into 2014. It’s hard to believe that Simply Stunning has been in business for almost SIX years and that we’ve created and managed almost 100 events! Therefore I felt that 2013 would be the perfect year to evolve and change things up a bit. I have learned so much over the past several years about the type of clients I love to work with and the type of weddings we love to create and I want to do more of what I love as the years go on. It’s important to me that every client chooses Simply Stunning because we are the best fit for them and because they believe and trust that we will expertly create the event of their dreams. It’s also important to me that we keep the planning process simple and relaxed and give each of our clients the time and attention they deserve. We always want to do our BEST work for every client.

So with all that being said, this is the year that we’ll be launching a whole NEW Simply Stunning Events! That’s right, new philosophy, new planning tools, new branding, new website, (and a little secret….there may be a new name too!….shhh). Jennifer and I have been hard at work over the last 4 months bringing this new vision together and we can’t wait to reveal it this summer!!

Stay tuned for some big changes! We know you’re going to love them!
