Musicians Make Melodies on their Wedding Day at Green Door Gourmet

Locklane Weddings & Events, Green Door Gourmet, Nashville

As you can tell from the photos, Anna and Paul were a delight to work with. They were relaxed and happy throughout the process.

I began working with them a year before their wedding on a consultation basis. Anna was a dream DIY bride! She and Paul listened to my suggestions for quality vendors and chose the areas they wanted to do themselves, such as the flowers. With plenty of time to create, plan and execute their ideas, they were able to make their centerpieces, table numbers, escort cards, gift table, "photo booth," and more. As they are both musicians, they called on friends for the live music at their ceremony and to create a fun dance party during the reception. They incorporated their family as they chose their decor and their mothers worked together to bake the family favorites for the dessert bar. Together, we wrapped up their details and executed a lovely, fun day.

Gather at the Table for Friendsgiving

Locklane Weddings & Events, Thanksgiving Friendsgiving

Each year our friends come together for a Friendsgiving. I love that it extends Thanksgiving and allows us to come together. My friends are truly my family and I am so grateful for them. This year's celebration was particularly special as we have added more friends and more babies - including our little Ellery! 

Last year, Cottage Hill Magazine asked my friend Alyssa Joy Photography to plan and photograph a farm thanksgiving. The idea was essentially a friendsgiving, but with the food brought to the table by friends of neighboring farms. Lucky for me, Alyssa asked me to help out with this home-grown goodness! While my family is all about the casseroles this time of year, I still drool over these roasted carrots and kale salad! At the end of the day, it all goes back to the idea of gathering with our loved ones around the table.
