Blessings

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, there is much to be grateful for.  Every day I am grateful to have such an AMAZING business partner and team of OUTSTANDING event assistants.  I can’t believe how lucky I am!  The team around me supports me, motivates me and helps make Borrowed & Blue better each day! 

Planning a wedding is hard work.  Nothing about this business is as easy or glamorous as one may think.  But, the days without having time to eat or sleep leading up to a wedding, the stress you take on so the bride and groom don't have to, the worry and the butterflies of nervousness all go away when you are able to make a couples dreams come true.  The hard work is definitely worth it in the end.  

In this industry, you can’t please everyone.  When it comes to weddings, there are a lot of emotions and opinions involved.  The risks are high but the reward is higher.  So today I am thankful for my happy brides, grooms and their families.  I am thankful that they all have kept us in their life and that they continue to praise Borrowed & Blue at every turn.  Without their smiling faces and words of encouragement, BB would not be as successful as it is today.  SO THANK YOU for letting us share in your special day.  We will be forever grateful to each and every one of you.  <3

Mashtini?

Last week I had the pleasure of attending my cousin’s wedding in the BEAUTIFUL city of Destin, Florida. If I wasn’t already ecstatic about being in the sunshine state for a beach wedding, my excitement sky-rocketed when I saw martini glasses! Open bar with beer, wine AND martinis? Count me in! I received an even greater shock when my sister sat down for dinner with her martini glass filled with … mashed potatoes? 


Come to find out there was a mashed potato bar, mashtinis anybody? Guests had their choice of buttermilk mashed, roasted garlic, or sweet potatoes with a variety of delicious toppings to add on. I thought it was definitely a great idea that guests could get creative with and enjoy. And let’s be honest, mashed potatoes are the only acceptable substitute for an Appletini.

Photo Booth? YES PLEASE!

This past weekend we worked with the fantastic folks from Southern Exposure Photo Booth!  Not only did we think the ladies were the sweetest things ever, their photo booth made my day!  It wasn’t gaudy, it didn’t take away from the glam d├ęcor, and like expected – it was a BIG HIT with the wedding party!  They even handed over the scrap book for the bride and groom that night without me having to chase them down!  I highly recommend them and know I will be using them again ASAP!  Check out our lovely wedding assistants looking fancy in the booth ;)  


Love these silly assistants of ours more and more each event!  I REALLY DON’T KNOW what we would do without them!! Glad to know they enjoyed the photo booth, too! =)
