I feel like I’m always behind with blog posts. Always. I think it just gets pushed to the bottom of the to-do list sometimes, especially when we are really busy, which we have been….
March and April have been great! We’ve worked some great events, met some awesome new vendors and worked with sweet friends. I’m hoping that I can get these events up on the blog ASAP. Bear with me guys.
To start off our March/April highlights (to be seen on the blog in the near future!), I want to share the wedding of sweet friends, Domenic and Nicole. As a fraternity brother of Clay’s, we have known Dom for 10 years….I think…something close to that, anyway! Nicole has been a perfect addition to our group of “couple friends” and we were so honored to be working with them to ensure their wedding day was spectacular!
Nicole was incredibly organized and knew exactly what she wanted. The couple worked well together to organize the details and plan the traditions that are included in a large Italian wedding. (Did I mention that Dom is Italian? Yea…his name is Domenic Vitro….the 18th. BIG Italian wedding!) From special wedding favors to a delicious “sweets table”, this wedding was full of fun Italian traditions! Don’t be fooled though! It wasn’t all about Dom! Everywhere you looked, you noticed Nicole’s feminine details. From lush floral centerpieces to the bridesmaids’ sparkling jewelry, the wedding was a lovely blend of Italian traditions and modern feminine touches.

Aha! Now I have your attention! 🙂 I’m getting ahead of myself so let’s rewind.
The ceremony took place at the Assumption Church and could not have been more perfect for this couple. With very little decor needed in this beautiful church, the couple kept things simple, only adding simple markers on the first few pews.
With a palette of black, white and red, the couple let their style shine with tasteful bridesmaids’ dresses and elegant flowers (The Enchanted Florist) and a traditional Catholic service.
Following the ceremony, guests were invited back to the reception at The Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro to join the couple in celebration.
Probably my favorite element of the evening: an incredible Same Day Edit video by Baughman Media Works! This talented team took footage shot from the ceremony, edited it in lightning speed, and featured it outside the banquet hall for guests to view as they mingled!
And please, tell me this is not the most awesome groom’s cake you’ve ever seen?! Dom, a pilot and Sigma Nu, worked with the talented crew at The French Confection to create this one of a kind groom’s cake! The fraternity guys LOVED it!
And because Nicole was a *stunning* bride, I wanted to share some of the sweet photos from their downtown shoot that immediately followed the ceremony.
We had a wonderful time working with these two! Their vendor line-up was full of incredible people and this post is not complete until we acknowledge those who made this event possible!
