Alane & Alex”
“Hickman & Hickman” was the theme of Alane and Alex’s wedding. In rare form, Alane and Alex entered their marriage with the same last name, Hickman. There was no relation between the two, so they used it to their advantage. Monograms of Hickman & Hickman adorned place cards, programs, invitations, popcorn favor bags and chocolate bars, even the custom made runway backdrop. Alane and Alex wanted a wedding that just celebrated their life and everyone who is a part of it.

Debbie & Paul
The sentiment of Debbie and Paul’s wedding day couldn’t have been more prominent. Everyone who was part of the wedding wanted nothing but a flawless day. Debbie lost her father just two weeks before the wedding but decided to go on with the events as planned. “It is what dad wanted,” she reminded us all. A sense of pure joy and happiness surrounded every aspect of the wedding. Guests signed a custom made monogram that was meant to hang in Debbie and Paul’s home. Tables were decorated with family heirlooms filled with luscious flowers. A photo booth was made with custom signs and Debbie’s favorite drapes. The entire wedding was simply beautiful and sweet. A quick summer rain shower came across the outside ceremony location just as the ceremony was to start. The rain was just quick enough to not ruin anything but leave behind a beautiful rainbow.

Aly & Doug
All Aly wanted was a simple fall wedding full of rich colors. All Doug wanted was to marry Aly and watch the Tennessee football game. They got both. Deep rich plums, softer greens and of course Tennessee orange was used to create this comfortable elegant wedding. Aly particularly liked the small details of the flower girls’ bird nest basket and tall tree branch centerpieces. Doug loved that we could use his last name “Tarwater” and his love of Tennessee in a playful way, like designing the Power T made of oranges and garnishing each guest glass with a “Big Orange” slice. Guests loved kicking up their heels to Rocky Top, enjoying a barbecue dinner, warming up by the fire and indulging in caramel apple cake. Fall doesn’t get much better in Tennessee.

Lizzy & Cameron
Tradition and classy elements set the tone for Lizzy and Cameron’s timeless wedding. A lace form fitting gown, white dinner jackets, evening gown for bridesmaids, a church ceremony; weddings do not get more classic. Lizzy and Cameron expressed their desire for a classic wedding that is rarely done anymore. They didn’t want to follow any trends or bright color scheme. Instead, they just wanted to have a fantastic wedding. Silk taupe linens draped the tables. Collections of glass, silver and mercury glass vases were filled with soft blush and ivory flowers. Lizzy’s dress let her go from a vision in lace at the church to a sophisticated dame at the reception. Of course, once the sun set everyone’s true colors came out. Every guest crowded the dance floor including mother of the bride and groom, sporting their 80’s neon sunglasses and singing “Shout”. No bright colors they said? Lizzy and Cameron were sent off with a bright collection of colorful glow sticks!
