{vendor appreciation} nashville wins in the service department

wow. it's good to be back...i've missed you guys! my weekend in nashville was a whirlwind! we spent the entire day saturday running errands and it really paid off and i don't know what i would have done without my crew (thanks mom, holly, kerry, and fh!).

my mom drove from knoxville early saturday morning to help with the decision making, here we are at traveller's rest (the reception site):

(we are going to hang a large wreath filled with natural herbs right above our heads..where the spotlight is...and fill the fireplace with ivory candles. it's going to be gorgeous..)

but our first and one of the most important stops that morning was at southern events with jill cole in franklin, tn. this woman was a-freaking-mazing. she knew what she was talking about and helped me pick out so many things that i would have forgotten. let me start out by saying that back when i was looking for rental companies on the internet, i emailed and called several. jill was the only one to return my messages and followed up promptly with price sheets and invoices. when i told her i would be coming in town, she didn't hesitate to pencil me in at a convenient time on valentines day. she helped me pick out place settings, linen, easels, etc. she even had photos to show of previous events so i could imagine what my chairs would look like with my ivory tablecloths. and at moments when i was in a near panic, she was so calm...and she never forced me into what she thought would look best...she always waiting for me to make my decision. it was an absolute pleasure. i highly recommend this vendor if you are looking for a rental company for your wedding or event that has top notch customer service and beautiful inventory to choose from, please contact jill. you will not regret it.

next up..the cake!

I've been reading your blog for a little while now, and I love it. It's great to see other Nashville brides. I'm planning from out of state too, although NC isn't nearly as far as California!

I'm also working with Jill from Southern Events and I just adore her! She's been better than great to work with and makes sure everything will be perfect for the day.

Good luck!!! You have top-notch Nashville vendors!
