Talon Winery Bridal Shower

Happy Tuesday to you!  The wedding this weekend was fantastic and you will be seeing more of that very soon.  Get super excited - it was perfect in every way!  Thanks for all of your kind texts, emails, voicemails and general well wishes.  I read them all to Carissa and her family - you folks are just too kind!  And speaking of the wedding, it was so super awesome in a big way because of Elizabeth Nichols' and Tiffany McMichael's coordination.  Our very own Taryn also helped out quite a bit as did Elizabeth's husband, Kyle.  I am so super excited to introduce a new planning and coordination firm to you, Ribbons and Pearls. From the first meeting Carissa had with Elizabeth and Tiffany, we all felt at ease and on the same page.  Carissa planned most everything, but wanted to be able to fully enjoy the day and not worry about a single thing.  In the consultations, we discussed her general vision, the DIY touches we had planned, timelines, deliveries, assembly of the reception site and the coordination of the ceremony.  Everything was just as she wished, and the best part was that we got to enjoy every single part of the rehearsal and wedding without having to check on the place cards, florals, food - anything really!  Elizabeth and her team assembled everything, kept us on time and dealt with all the vendors.  After seeing many weddings and now having seen Carissa plan her whole wedding, I have become so thankful for and aware of the help that planners can offer.  Whether it be day-of services, tying up lose ends in the final two weeks or the whole planning process, it is so helpful to have detail oriented people on board thinking of all those things you are too busy to consider.  Love, love, love planners!  It is so nice to let all of that stress melt onto someone else's to-do list.

That being said, take a look at this bridal shower Elizabeth planned a few weeks ago at Talon Winery in Shelbyville.  Her new firm, Ribbons and Pearls, will cater to client's needs both in town and out of town.  Everything from full wedding planning and coordination, to shower set-ups, birthday parties and corporate events are in her repertoire.  Service begins with a consultation to discuss your plans, dreams and expectations.  After that, Elizabeth's team bounces a proposal back to you.  You will work together to customize her services to your planning needs.  If you're not convinced yet, stop by the shop and I will put in a call to stress-free Mrs. Carissa Russell.  Elizabeth's team was great to her!  Party time?  Email Elizabeth: elizabeth@ribbonsandpearls.com
