So we keep seeing/reading/thinking things and making mental notes...."Oooooh, that would be fun to blog about"....and then life happens and the days come and go....and now we have this random collection of thoughts....happy reading :) :) :)

First stop at were doing a little perusing of our local resources and saw that some images of our gowns were highlighted...namely this great Vineyard Collection shot leading into some suggestions for great necklines on gowns.....

Also at Nashville Weddings online is a feature on our sweet bride Samantha might remember her post from a few months back when we introduced you to her and her sweet fiance.....

Moving right along to InStyle Weddings....a little post about Celebrity Rings caught our attention.... and lo and behold...picture 7 of 7 was designer Melissa Akey of Thread Social -- and what is on her sash?? None other than a fabulous Paris brooch...this piece is called Chalk's just gorgeous!!! Love it?? Stop in and see what other brooches we have.....promise, promise, they are all amazing!!! (oh yeah, and the ring isn't so bad, either :) :) )

Lastly....a shout out to all our brides from the past you have photos?? Have you sent us pictures of your big day yet???? We want to know how it all went...what was your favorite moment??? The best part? The biggest surprise??? We'd love to blog about you, too, but we need your photos!!!!! We miss you and would love to see images from your day!!! Do share!!!

A Few of Our Favorite Things....

So last night we had a very minor occurrence of SNOWFALL in Nashville - it's true!!

We love the fact that it is November and we already saw a few that it is the most perfect way to usher in the kickoff to the holidays....Thanksgiving.....It was just a quiet reminder of all the things we love about this time of year.... :) :) :)

Sweaters, coats, scarves, boots!!!! Of course we had to mention the fashion element of the to bundle up and brave the elements in a chic capelet sweater and tall pair of boots.....Currently loving this ruffle-detail sweater (and layers!!!) from the ever spot-on GAP....

And it wouldn't be holiday season in Nashville if there wasn't an abundance of radio and TV commercials for the annual Radio City Music extravaganza featuring the Rockettes themselves....something about the Rockettes and Christmastime just go hand-in-hand .... :)

Lastly....we would be amiss if we didn't mention one of our favorite things about winter......snowy, frosty, winter-themed weddings!!!!! OOOH We found this image while we were poking around for inspiration and it stopped us dead in our snowy tracks..... :) :) LOVE IT. Will be swooning forever and ever :) :)

Have a warm and toasty weekend!!!!

Real Bride Betsy

We are so happy today to introduce you to the lovely Betsy.

When we think of our experience with Betsy, we just think of how gracious and sweet and completely down-to-earth she is. Betsy was such a joy because we know she had a greater perspective of this next chapter....had some insight into the marriage and not just the wedding....How we treasure those brides! And these photos capture a timelessness and classic beauty that will truly never be out of style....

Betsy - thank you so much for your kindness and goodness along the way! We really loved being a part of the process!!
