Stephanie & Chris Wedding

Stephanie & Chris had a wonderfully intimate wedding ceremony at 1st Centenary United Methodist Church downtown Chattanooga. Chris is in the military & has been stationed in Alaska so his friends and family were so thankful to be able to spend some time with him. It was obvious throughout the day with both Chris & Stephanie how close this group of friends is & how honored they all were to be a part of this celebration.

Once to The Read House for the reception the guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres while the family & bridal party finished up pictures. Once the bride & groom were announced into the reception guests were invited to their tables & served a wonderful fillet dinner while Disney's "Be Our Guest" played. After an amazing dinner there were heartfelt toasts, emotional & fun dances and the bouquet and garter toss & the night concluded with a last dance to a song loved by Chris & Stephanie.

The entire day flowed flawlessly and we very much enjoyed getting to spend time with such a close group of friends and family. Good luck in your new lives!

As always- this event could not have been successful without the help of many talented vendors. Thank you to the following for making this day memorable for Stephanie and Chris and their guests!

Caitlin & Tyler Wedding

Caitlin Tanner & Tyler Stokes had a beautiful wedding at First Baptist Church in Chattanooga on 12/27/08. The reception followed and was equally as wonderful at The Chattanoogan Hotel. Caitlin looked beautiful & Tyler in his "dress blues" (he was home for a short time from the Marines) looked very refined & handsome. The ceremony was very personal to Caitlin & Tyler with special vows & bible verses as well as a solo by Caitlin's bridesmaid & good friend, Lora. There was not a dry eye in the house.....

Then to the reception... The Chattanoogan ballroom looked amazing. Again, my camera quit working so I lost all the pictures but will post some soon if I can get my hands on some from Tom Smith Photography. The tables were dressed in a modern but sophisticated turquoise, black & silver with pops of hot pink in the floral centerpieces. The lighting & candles in the room gave it the romantic feel Caitlin was looking for.

The food was fabulous, the guests (and parents...) danced and enjoyed & Caitlin and Tyler mingled with their guests. Everyone had a great time & I thoroughly enjoyed this event. Good luck in your new lives together.

As always- this event could not have been successful without the help of many talented vendors. Thank you to the following for making this day memorable for Caitlin and Tyler and their guests!

Megan & Alan Wedding

This post is much overdue but between working & celebrating Christmas & New Year's I have not yet had a chance to update. Unfortunately my camera died on New Years Day (when I was trying to download the pictures from 3 December weddings) so I have no pictures yet to show but assure each of the next 3 posts reflect beautiful wedding & receptions!

Megan & Alan Stimpson's December 21 wedding was held at Grace Episcopal Church with the reception at The Walden Club. This was a weekend full of Groom's dinners, brunches & bridal luncheons- the entire weekend was full of good times for the guests as well as Megan & Alan. The wedding day went perfectly- there were some time constraints (Sunday church weddings are a little tricky) but everyone (Florist- Mignonne Pearson mostly) was prepared to get the decorating done quickly & the church looked beautiful! Megan was the most calm bride I have had in a very long time & it was refreshing- she was very appreciative of everyone & stayed very relaxed throughout planning & the wedding day.

The reception was equally as perfect. The Walden Club provided amazing (and beautifully presented) food & the guests ate, drank, danced, mingled & truly enjoyed the evening. From the bride & groom's first dance, to heartfelt toasts from the bridal party, to a birdseed exit on Chestnut Street, to the "after party" the evening flowed perfectly & kept guests entertained.

Thank you, Megan & Alan for allowing me to get to know you & your families. I wish you the best of luck always!!

As always thank you to the wonderful vendors that made this day possible!!
