Ashley + John | February 28, 2009

 Couldn't be happier to introduce you today to sweet Ashley...

Ashley was one of our winter brides and had all the class and composure you could dream of. She was decisive, confident and an absolute dream to work with....She chose her Monique Lhuillier dress and Toni Federici veil and it came together oh so beautifully....

Ashley had her makeup done by the fine ladies at Daniel Cole ...They are one of our neighbors here in the Courtyard at Bandywood, so Ashley popped in the store on her way to the church....ooooh so fun to see a bride on her wedding day!!! Loved, loved, loved how relaxed Ashley when we saw her...and that so clearly made for a beautiful day....

Gorgeous photos by Paul Wharton ... Enjoy!

Local Love

So many of  you ask about where to get cute wedding shoes....for the bride, for moms of the bride & groom....for bridesmaids, showers, teas, luncheons.....all of it!

While we do love our bridal shoes by Grace, you've probably also heard us mention Monkees, the too-cute shoe boutique in Hill Center.....
Super sweet owner and fellow female-business owner Elizabeth has a great eye for style and knows how to make a girl feel good! She just launched her
 Monkees blog and we think you should check it out.....

Not only does Monkees have shoes, but also great bags and jewelry, too!! Their tagline is "You might need a bigger closet" can you NOT love it all?!?!!

We've Been Blogged!!!!

Happy March, everyone!!!! Couldn't resist this too cute photo we snagged from the amazing Style Me Pretty blog (a daily read at TBR!)....the colors remind us that spring is right around the corner!!!

So exciting when we get a shout out on another blog :) :) There are so many fabulous, creative, hard-working people in the industry we admire so much and we can't's humbling and thrilling to be among them!

First...from Ashley's Bridal Guide, a wedding directory for Nashville brides....ABG, along with Nashville HER magazine, both feautured Megan + Jerry's wedding because...well, because it was so beautiful and well executed! Breath-taking really!! Long story, but we (sadly!) did not get to do Megan's dress (timing is everything, girls!!!)....but we adopted her as one of "our" brides anyway and she worked with us on her veiling and fantastic jewelry. Her sweet spirit and well-appointed celebration certainly deserves all the attention it's been getting!! Love it all!! She gave us a li'l shout out here, so we thought we'd share the love!!

Then we get this happy little note from friend and photographer Michael Howard .....Maybe you remember our January post about our oh-so fabulous bride Brooke and her cutie hubby Justin? Well they were featured on the very chic new blog Southern Weddings, an extension of Southern Weddings Magazine. To see more details about their sweet day, you really must check this post out!

Hope your month is off to a great start!!
