Sneak Peek – Chris & Holly! A Riverwood Wedding

by Jody on June 22, 2009, posted in Featured Weddings

We wanted to share with you all a sneak peek of a wedding we did in Nashville, TN this past weekend for Chris & Holly. Their wedding was beautiful and went so smoothly (thanks to Kimberly, Joyce, and the rest of the staff at Riverwood Mansion). It was such a great wedding to be a part of. Chris & Holly are such a fun & amazing couple to be around!!

Love the cool wedding shoes on the star studded background!

Chris is a Navy Helicopter pilot.

We loved Holly’s pearl necklace and great wedding dress!

Holly had some gorgeous wedding flowers too!

Wedding bubbles are the way to go!

Friday Fun… Mini Bowling!

by Jody on June 19, 2009, posted in Personal Fun

Welcome to this week’s Friday Fun blog!

Wednesday night we hung out with friends/past clients/future clients/artists/business women (yes, they are all of those to us), Alexis & Laura and their significant others! Alexis is married to Abdul (whose wedding we shot this past year!), and Laura is to be wed to Jim later this year!! We decided to have a triple date and head off to the Franklin Family Entertainment Center for Mini Bowling (aka Midget Bowling)!!

If you remember, we last posted on this form of bowling late January when we went with friends Amy & Brendon (click HERE for more pics and video of that adventure).

This was a whole new adventure and everyone brought out their best at the 10th frame which you will see in the short awesomely professional video below. We opted out of putting background music in, and you will see why. Make sure your volume is up :)

Fun times had by all! Maybe we’ll do another competition and the winner(s) will get to go mini-bowling with us and see our MAD SKILLZ in the flesh!!!!

Lovin’ your comments! Still have 2 weeks to go for the Starbucks Gift Card Give-a-way!!


Post 200 Celebration Give-a-way!!

by Jody on June 17, 2009, posted in Uncategorized

Wow! This is our 200th blog post! Lots of writing, lots of pictures, lots of visits (just reached 30,000 new hits!), lots of views (almost 50,000 – whew!), lots o’ lovin’ from all of you awesome commenters (though some of you can maybe do better ;o), and it’s been so much fun sharing our lives with you all over the last year!

There are so many of you out there who we have met in person who come to our blog and we’re so glad that we’ve been providing a fun and informative place for you to hang out while you are stuck in front of your computers :) It’s been great having the chance to meet some of you self named “blog stalkers” and getting to know some of you a bit!

So, in honor of this 200th post, we are doing something really special! We want all of you who have been avid readers, those who come by on occasion, and those who are brand new to our blog to leave us a comment (tell us about yourself and why you keep coming back!) AND sign up for our rockin’ newsletter HERE (which will have insider behind-the-scenes tips & tricks as well as much, much more). If you do both of these things you will be entered into a drawing and we will send the lucky blog reader a $25 gift card to Starbucks (one of our favorite places to go)! Why? Because we just want to give back the love a little bit, but in the most delicious way possible. Yummy!!

Seriously, leave a comment because we love finding out who you all are and for those who have blogs or a website, we really enjoy following the links and reading about you and your life!

We will announce the drawing winner on our 1 year blog anniversary – July 1st, so you all have two weeks to comment on this post & sign up to our newsletter!

Enjoy the look of this blog while it lasts because we have a little something special up our sleeves that you will all see very soon… He, he, he (that is our sinister, evil laugh).

(I love this shot Jody took of the wedding invitations!)

Two weekends ago we shot the wedding of Autumn & Jeremy at Belle Meade Plantation!! The weather was gorgeous and Autumn was such a relaxed and beautiful bride!

Some of the vendors who made this day happen:
Beautiful flowers were by Rachel Short Designs
The DELICIOUS food was catered by
Down South Delights
Coordination of planning & decoration was through
One Source Weddings

Enjoy a few of the images for now!!

Autumn had a really cool wedding dress!

The guys did not want to wear their tuxedo jackets because of the heat.

That is the second boutonniere for Jeremy because he killed the first one!

The ladies wore some cool brown bridesmaids dresses.

Love this shot of the Father walking the bride down the isle.

CONGRATS you two!!!!!!! Hope you have had a blast on your cruise!!!!!

Such a fun exit from the wedding at Belle Meade Plantation!
