Zach + Elyssa | Styled Outdoor Wedding Reception

We loved being a part of Zach and Elyssa's beautiful outdoor wedding reception! We took their idea for having a mimosa bar and ran with it, creating a vintage setup to go along with the look they wanted for their reception. Their friends gathered after the ceremony in the lounge area that we setup on the patio of one of the beautiful barns at Drakewood, which allowed them to sip their mimosas while chatting and looking through the sweet couple's engagement album and photos. We filled the dining tables with a mixture of mismatched china, gold chargers, brass candlesticks, vintage books, and floral to create the romantic vintage theme that she was going for. The dance floor was placed under the large tree with gold chandeliers hung above to finish off that romantic environment they wanted to see. These two were such a pleasure to work with!
Congratulations, Zach and Elyssa!

Halloween Mad Hatter Tea | Styled 30th Birthday Party

It was a Halloween Mad Hatter Birthday Tea Party for the lovely birthday girl, Mrs. Sarah...aka The Red Queen - we will get to that later! This event is one of our favorites to date, since we got to mix our style with a bit of a Halloween spooky twist. The night was held at the gorgeous Grandale Manor, which made for the perfect tea party setting.  
We had the honor of attending the tea party, and we were asked to host a murder mystery game during the tea.  We of course loved that idea, and came up with an Alice in Wonderland themed murder mystery game for all of the guests to play throughout the night. Luckily for us, Sarah's tea party guests were the BEST, and all of them got right into their character! Each guest was given an envelope with their character description upon arriving to the event, and throughout the course of the evening we would give clues leading to the guessing of the murderer, who ended up being Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Sarah is so thoughtful and brought a fun prize from Shineworthy Tea for the winner of the murder mystery, and who doesn't love a fun gift surprise?!
Sarah is the owner of Homestyle Bakery in Antioch, TN, and a true creative genius when it comes to all things sweet! She took our design idea for the cake and created an adorable masterpiece.  Whether she liked to admit it or not, she's also a pretty creative hat maker. Sarah asked that each guest wear their best tea party hat. For Sarah, buying a hat wasn't good enough, so she created her own, and it ended up being our favorite! 
The night was perfect, spent sipping tea and munching on the sweets, courtesy of Homestyle Bakery, which we had way too many of. Thank you Sarah, for including us in your birthday celebration! We had such a blast celebrating you and being Alice characters for a night of tea party fun! Happy 30th!
