“Time to drink champagne & dance on the table”
This wedding was anything short of fun. Britan and Taylor made sure to create an atmosphere that no one would forget! From an epic band to Honey Butter Chicken Biscuits at the end of the night, they’re guests left happy!
Taylor & Britan’s wedding was featured on Wedding Chicks back in February and anyone could see why! It was full of gorgeous Fall details that could not have happened without this amazing list of A team vendors!

In our early conversations about marriage, I was already hoping for the venue of my dreams. When White Sparrow Barn opened this past year, I fell in love. You also know it was meant to be when your friends kept referring to it as “Britni’s venue”! I told Stephen, early on, that I wanted WSB, but when I check in to their availability in October for another bride, I found out they were almost booked for 2016. After much stressing and failed attempts to find anything like it, I came to grips with the fact that it may never happen and I was ok with that.
It was time to take my own advice and remember that the venue wouldn’t change whether or not Stephen and I would get married. So, I let it go. Best decision ever.
Little did I know that he and some of my closest friends were scheming. The day I was working at a workshop in January, he was visiting the venue to book it for us!! Just out of curiosity, that week, he emailed Nadia and asked if anything in the Fall was open. She said that November 5 had just opened up!! GOD IS SO GOOD. Y’all!
Many of you asked what was on the piece of paper he gave me at our engagement party was. It was his gift to me – White Sparrow!!
We could not be more excited than to share our special day there & it cannot come fast enough!!
A year ago, I would’ve never guessed that I would be engaged to the most wonderful man. God has truly been working on me and preparing me for the future that He has planned for us. Stephen and I met in our church Home Group and it was all up hill from there. Looking back now, I would’t have done it any other way. While the Lord was working on me, He was also working on Stephen and we have been able to see Him use us and we cannot wait to see what He has in store for our future!!

First thing first – I’m the realist – hah just kidding!! But for real. Happy 2nd Birthday to Borrowed & Blue Occasions!!
I am so beside myself and cannot wrap my mind around everything that has happened over the past two years & the people that have helped me get there. It truly is a great feeling when you are walking in the place the Lord has put you & I could not be more grateful. I have met so many people along the way that have driven, encouraged and influenced me to become the business that I want my couples to experience & that has brought me to encounter do many incredible couples!
I hope you love the rebrand! I was so excited when the Lord lead me to be intentional this year and that meant in every aspect of my life. So, I started with my branding and from there came a little facelift to my website! I have also added something new to my packaging and I am so excited about seeing where that goes!
So grab a cup of tea or coffee on this dreary Monday and take a look around and let me know what you think!
Also, be sure and keep and eye out for an awesome giveaway to celebrate #BandBOccasionsTurns2 that include goodies from some amazing vendors!!
PS: HUGE hugs go out to XOGinny – the girl behind my stunning new logo & Elisabeth Carol for rocking it and pulling every last detail in my new website together! you two are rockstars and I could not have done it without you!

Sometimes you have post like last weekend and sometimes you have ones that are short and sweet. For me this either means two things; I was so in the moment that I didn’t have time to take pictures (which is never a bad thing) or that I was so relaxed and had a weekend of a little R&R. This was not the case for this past weekend, for if I had taken a lot of pics, it would’ve been a lot of pictures of traffic and last minute Christmas shopping – you can’t say anything, you know we are all guilty of it at some point. hahah
As some of you know, my grandmother suffered from a stroke almost three weeks ago. This past Tuesday we drove to Lubbock to have her transported to a rehab facility in Mansfield so she could be close to family. She has been quite the trooper and we have seen huge amounts of improvement! Praise the Lord!
She has a roommate named Lucy and she is quite the hoot. Every time I step foot in her room I always walk out laughing – and so does Nana. Since she has a long road of recovery ahead of her, I decided to keep up with some of the funny things Lucy says, so that when she is released we will have some funny memories to look back on. This is Round 1.
