Today... well, today did not necessarily start out as planned. I left home 15 minutes early to go to The Frist to get ready for my final Print presentation. We were to meet in the cafe at 12:30pm. I arrived at 12:15pm only to discover, as I parked my car, that I had left my boards AT HOME! Oh my stars! I was out of that parking lot by 12:16. I called Caitlin to relay the message to Doug. I'll just chalk it up to being finals. I flew home... sadly a miscalculation made it a 30 minute drive back to the house. I went a different route and made it back to The Frist in 20 minutes. I pulled in at 1:01pm. I ran inside, got my ticket validated, and panicked. I couldn't get ahold of anyone. I sat in the lobby for a few minutes and just cried (read: ten minutes, and tried to regain my composure). Luckily Caitlin came to my rescue and took me up to the presentation room. Thank goodness Doug is so laid back. I was blessed enough to walk in, calm down, and finally present my stuff. They seemed to really love it. I didn't receive any constructive criticism in any way and they said it was all very cohesive and very "me". Praise! The rushing, the panicking, and the crying in the lobby even... It all seemed worth it. I bolted not long after and now I'm down the street at the Panera on West End, killing time before my tattoo appointment at 4pm. So much to do tonight! But rather than think bad thoughts, let's drool over the recent postings at OnceWed.com shall we?!

This is hands-down one of the most beautifully styled and photographed weddings I've ever seen. Her simple dress, his simple khakis. They even opted to go without a wedding party, and invited their adorable little dog to stand in as best man! The photography was shot by Amy Carroll. You must pop over and check out her site! Part ONE of the feature can be found HERE.
Beautiful environment and colors. Doesn't this young couple just look so darling?! Photography by Kirstin Ellis.
I consider myself a huge fan of Tec Petaja and his adorable wife, Chelsea! They singlehandedly (doublehandedly, maybe? haha) inspired my future wedding. I love to read Chelsea's blog and I gawk in amazement at Tec's photography. Best of all, they're Nashvillians, too! They own an adorable little green house in East Nashville that has been featured on Design*Sponge and the likes. They just seem so charming all around. Tec took these photographs on their bed and breakfast, 40 minutes outside of Nashville. How gorgeous are they?! Swoon!

Off to get tattooed! Thanks for hanging in there!
