Grace Ormonde Wedding Style: Inspirations

As many brides to be and fellow event professionals know, Grace Ormonde is THE name in high end design and events. I am humbled and yet so proud to say that Haute Horticulture, partnered with some of the best names in Memphis, currently has 6 photos (1 tabletop, 5 lounge) in their new Wedding Style Magazine Website Inspirations Gallery. I have been purchasing that big beautiful magazine for nine years since I was engaged and dreaming about the florals and tables capes I saw in every jaw dropping issue. It inspired my own wedding design and continues to inspire me today in my work. Since the age of the e-bride, Wedding Style magazine has gone digital with more platinum resources and photos. This is truly a wonderful day for all of the vendors involved in these featured events!

Fellowship of Christian Athletes Banquet

For the second year in a row, I have been asked to decorate the head tables at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Spring fundraising banquet. This year they had Jason Sehorn as their guest speaker. I have to admit I probably only saw him as a defensive back (football) for the Giants when he was playing against my favorite team the Washington Redskins. He had a lot to say to inspire the young athletes who attended and he sure was handsome. There was quite the photo op line after the event! Special thanks to Melissa who took time from her busy schedule to come assist in the setup. It was fun but went fast! -Karin

Sunny April Wedding Part 2: Relaxed Reception

My most recent couple Andy and Becky were married last weekend among all their closest friends and family. The day was perfect, but wouldn't have been so easy had it not been for the hard behind the scenes work of the coordinator, Patti Braswell, as well as the accommodating owners and staff of Vinegar Jim's in Arlington. With their blessing, we set out to transform the restaurant only slightly from a rustic cabin atmosphere to a slightly more feminine decor. I liken it to a beautiful woman who doesn't have to wear makeup, but who catches your attention in a new spring dress. And as always, the food at Vinegar Jim's was delicious!

Sunny April Wedding: Andy and Becky

This past weekend was the true beginning of Spring in Arlington, TN. My dear neighbor's daughter walked down the aisle this sunny Saturday near our cozy downtown square and I was honored to be a part of their big day. The professional photographs will be coming in a few weeks, but I couldn't help but post some of my favorites from my own camera. What a photogenic couple! I want to say a special thank you to Wayne, Patti Braswell, Melissa, Molly, and Blake for all the help for the early a.m. setup. It was well worth beating the sun to rise!

More to come...
