Happy Thursday, y’all! It is a very happy day over here, indeed. I’m delighted to announce that we’ve been featured on Southern Weddings! I owe a very big thank you to Justin DeMutiis and White Magnolia Bridal for encouraging me to take on this inspiration shoot- it very much became a heart project of mine!


If you haven’t jumped on the Instagram train yet, you can visit the Ashton Events profile here! You can also find the vendors by using #southernwildernessshoot.  I’ll be sharing a bit more in depth over there about the design, and why this particular shoot resonated so deeply with me.


I can tell you that the words on this backdrop are one of the three main inspirations. I get teary-eyed just looking at it!


This shoot was a sunrise shoot, shot at the gorgeous Rocking H Ranch. We got up (so!!) early to try and capture the fog that naturally graces the pastures each morning. I may have ruined a pair of my tennis shoes from the dew in the process, but it was absolutely breathtaking being out in the open fields to watch the sun greet us.



There are so many little details from this shoot that tied together seamlessly. One of my favorites is the bride’s hair piece from Bride La Boheme, it served as an design inspiration for the entire print materials suite, lovingly made by Eleven Note!



You’ll hear me talk about this over on Instagram, but one of the biggest reasons that I loved this shoot was the amount of artists that were willing to collaborate on this shoot.



Community is the bread and butter of my business- I cannot do my job without the help, support, and talent of my other vendors. From the custom textured linens from Kate Ryan Linens, to the handcrafted table numbers by DH Studios (aren’t those encaustics incredible!?), to the artisan breads & pastries from Born & Bread Bakehouse… the list goes on, and I can’t thank them each enough for participating. Every vendor listed below went above and beyond to make this shoot possible!



So, go check out the feature (and the video!) on Southern Weddings, and don’t forget to visit us on Instagram. We’d love to hear what you think! Cheers!

Hip hip hooray! We finally got our blog back up and running, and are delighted to share this feature with you. It was located in one of our favorite jazz bars, Tony’s Studio B, in Lakeland, and put together by so many of our favorite vendors. Mikkel Paige & Lauren from Every Last Detail contacted me about a styled shoot this spring, eager to create a design based around Mikkel’s brand. I was instantly drawn to how her bright colors contrast against a crisp black + white stripe. I also loved the surprising, cheekily playful elements (who doesn’t love an opportunity for spunkiness!?).



The invitation suite was a masterful group effort, and I loved how the final look blended hints from each layer of the design. Did you notice the verbiage on the menu?


Our bride wore a gorgeous gown from Malindy Elene (look at that back!), accented with some fabulous statement pieces. Because of how simple the front of the dress was, we couldn’t resist pairing it with a bold, bright + fluffy bouquet of flowers.



Colbie Caillat’s song, “Brighter than the Sun”, became a source of inspiration, and we made sure to include not only the lyrics but the actual sheet music as well! We pulled “his sunshine + her moonlight” as a fun detail for the sweetheart chairs provided by Kate Ryan Linens.



The lounge furniture from Wish Vintage filled the sunlit window area perfectly! And Brie Does Makeup did a phenomenal job with that chic ponytail- oh so chic.



The escort display turned out brilliantly, and a detailed eye will notice that the cards are alphabetized (something Lauren consistently talks about on her blog, and our guests always appreciate!).



The gorgeous gold sequin stripe linen from House of Hough tied into the design perfectly! We loved the stripe-on-stripe moment.



And, finally, the scrumptious cake by The Sugar Suite. Love it!




There are so many great details- be sure to check them out on Every Last Detail! Many thanks to all of the extremely talented vendors involved.

When Wish Vintage Rentals and Tiffani Jones Photography call to tell you they are working on a fun project at the beautiful Bok Tower Gardens and want you to join in, you just can’t help but say yes. Or, at least that is how we feel! We are overjoyed to get to share this gorgeous shoot with you.



And we definitely encourage you to head over to 100 Layer Cake to check out some of the spread, as well as hear about Lisa & Tiffani’s vision for the day.




The dress from The Dress Theory Nashville, and the custom veil by Olivia Gray were a perfect match for each other. The combination stopped us in our tracks that day!




The florals we brought into the shoot were filled with garden roses, wispy larkspur, ranunculus, kale blossoms and a couple pops of color from some jazzy poppies. We just couldn’t resist adding in a touch of personality!




The escort display was one of our favorite touches! We loved the terra cotta tiles, and how they nestled into the white and green kale. There was just something so fresh and simplistic to the whole look. And that vintage bar cart…



There are so many thoughtful, rich details to this shoot. Tiffani did an incredible job creating these stunning images! Before your weekend, be sure to go peruse the feature!





Happy weekend, friends!
