Communication with a Bullhorn

Are you having trouble effectively communicating with your wedding vendors?

I wrote this post, "Nine Tips for Effectively Communicating with Your Wedding Vendors" back in 2009, but I believe it is very relevant today.

Happy Wedding Planning!

Wedding Reading: Excerpt from The Bridge Across Forever by Richard Bach

March 1, 2015

A Bride and Groom Holding Hands


"A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks.  When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be.  Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise.

Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life."


Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

Love & Soul Always, Kay

Marsala-Inspired Wedding Reception Shoot

February 27, 2015

A Marsala Inspired Photo Shoot

When Pantone named Marsala as their color of the year, Howerton+Wooten Events team member Hana Pugh knew exactly how to style it.

Hana chose to show off this rich color by combining it with black and white stripes, elegant paper and gold flatware.  Hana partnered with Janet Flowers of Nature of Design to add a long, lush row of roses and candlelight to the table, and she worked with Le'Trice Penn of LePenn Designs to finish the look with unique menu cards that featured a red wine stain. (How fun!)
