Mountain Wedding Style

Posted on May 03, 2019

A few months ago, we spoke to floral designer extraordinaire Evan Leggoe of Thicket Creative about doing a wedding shoot. Evan recently moved to Chattanooga from Atlanta, and is building her business locally. We had a shared dream of stringing carnations on a line, like you see on temples in India. From there, Evan pulled together the most amazing group of vendors: Dresses: Monicas Bridal | Hair: Shaina Ramsey Beauty | Makeup: Gabriella Bordo | Furnishings/Tableware: Ramblewood Events | Florals: Thicket Creative | Photography: OK Crowe (Rachael Crowe) & Wonderly Creative (YeeWon Wil...

It’s Painted White!

Posted in Wedding Blog on Mar 02, 2019

For several months… ok, a year… maybe more, I’ve wanted to paint the barn white inside. To me, the dark rustic-ness didn’t fit the Cottage or feel seamless with it. The Cottage is bright and happy inside, and a little trendy. The red oak in the barn didn’t feel that way. We had the trendy lighting (which is easier to see now, and I loooooove that) but it didn’t jump out well against the natural walls. Now I feel like all of our black hardware makes a statement, and the brick in our floors is more apparent as well. Brick will be in a few places throughout the venue as we keep adding. It add...

Our Fave Wedding Trends

Posted in Wedding Blog on Dec 14, 2018

Making the jump from interior design to loving all kinds of wedding design has been a pretty short hop-skip over. We’re always keeping an eye on the trends to see what the latest is, and to dream up our latest take on all the styles. Pampass Grass Green Wedding Shoes Long the semi-hated yard staple, these giant puffs of fluff have breathed hot new life into floral installations. We’ve found images of them flowing down the aisle, bursting in beautiful wedding bouquets, and adding billowy greatness to the wedding arbor. We love it all.
