What Inspires Us!

Maybe it's because The September Issue finally made it to Nashville....or the footage from our fashion show was just posted....or that market is now officially seven days away (!!!!!)....Whatever the reason, we've recently found ourselves consumed with all things fashion: following trends, investigating designers, and studying the global market about what is current and relevant.

So the timing couldn't be more perfect when the very lovely and talented Brooke Boling of Firecracker Studios invited us to partner with her for a couple of fashion stories she was preparing to shoot. We've helped ourselves to some of these amazing images from her super cute blog, and you can see the full stories here. Enjoy :)

You've probably heard us say over and over again that we have the best jobs, that we have so much fun, that we love our work and our brides. It's true, it's all totally true and every day we are so very thankful to do what we love and share in the specialness of your day and dreams....

What is also very fun for us is that you have to pick one dress, and we get them all :) :)....every year, every season, every style.... we see gowns come and go, trends turn over, designers evolve.... Undoubtedly, the larger fashion industry informs the bridal community and vice versa.

So while it is exciting and fascinating to see the new, the improved, the re-worked, and the crazy editorial pieces on the runway each season, it is also incredibly satisfying to see our very own, and our favorites, in a new and different {and decidedly fabulous!} way.

It is absolutely an honor to be considered when such innovative artists want to include us, and an total thrill when the images look this good. Many thanks to Brooke and her team that created such a visual feast for us all. Cheers!
