Scott and Dena 4/25

Scott and Dena were married last Saturday. It was a very simple wedding with traditional vows, a unity candle, and very pretty decorating by The Bridal Path. They had no bridal party or groomsmen and traditional music. Their story is really sweet. They have been having a long distance relationship for a year and Scott found out that he had to go on another tour in Afghanistan. They were engaged shortly after they found out in early April. Then they called me and now have been married for two days. Their reception was intimate with close friends and family at the Boundry. Flowers were provided by Raintree Florist from Brentwood. They were all ivory roses, including mother's corsages and buitonneres. Cake was provided by Jo's Custom Cakes and Catering in Smyrna. It was white chocolcate with buttercream icing. The roses were sugar spun, deep red with black tips. Below are some pictures of the flowers and cake. Hopefully later I will have some pictures of the happy bride and groom.

Gettting closer!

Dena and Scott are getting married in less than two weeks! I now have all the floral arrangements ready. All the flowers are going to be cream roses, which I think will go beautifully with Dena's ivory wedding gown. We have found a great way to involve the family in the ceremony. We are going to have the guests to promise to support Scott and Dena's new marriage. Now all that is left to do is get ready for the ceremony. Below is a picture of what the bouquet will look like, only in cream.



I am also excited because I am doing a new wedding in September at the Sam Davis Home. They are so friendly there and it really is a beautiful place to get married. I am meeting with the bride tomorrow. Will post more when I have more information.

April 25th Wedding...getting ready

I am so excited about Dena and Scott getting married! They called me on Friday, April 3rd, and are getting married on April 25th. Obviously we have a lot to do! We have found the venue photographer, and officiant. They are getting married at a chapel that provides the photographer and officiant, which is a big help. Their reception will be at a local upper class resteraunt. I met with Dena yesterday and ordered the cake today. It is going to be white chocolate with white buttercream icing, deep red sugar roses with black tips, and two tiered. It sounds delicious! I am using Jo's Custom Cakes and Catering of Smyrna for the cake and she always does a wonderful job. Soon I am going to call the florist. Dena and Scott want to involve all the guests in their ceremony and I will post later about what they choose. I can not wait until everything comes together!

April 4th wedding, Walt and Amy

I have decided to start a blog for To The Last Bubble (http://www.tothelastbubble.com/) , my wedding planning business based out of La Vergne, TN and serving the Nashville area. That way people can know what is going on with the business. I am just going to start with my last wedding that I did, which was on April 4th. The wedding was between Walt and Amy from Eagleville. It was outdoors at the Sam Davis Home in Smyrna, TN. They had a tent up for the reception and it went really well. We were very worried about the weather but everything turned out great! Amy's bridesmaids dress colors were silver with a platinum sash. The centerpieces were silk lavendar flowers with beads and votive candles. See picture below:

My favorite part of this wedding was the sand ceremony, in which Walt and Amy poured different colors of sand into one vase with their names and wedding date engraved on it. I liked this new take on the unity candle, and it works well with venues that do not want candles or fire in their facilites.
