Who said good things can’t happen on Friday, The Thirteenth?
Today’s featured wedding couple went out of their way to show kindness and intentional love with every aspect of their wedding day planning! The couple opted for a charity registry, instead of ‘more stuff’, and choose to support a local Pekingese Rescue where they adopted their dogs from. They also had a dollar dance and the money collected was donated to a rabbit rescue. They hired a farm to table caterer with a 90% vegetarian dinner and skipped unnecessary decorations. The only vendor the couple hired outside of the venue’s vendor guide was our very own BSB Vendor, Sandrachile, specifically because she is an ethical and charitable business owner. Let this story of collective generosity take root in our hearts and breathe life into actionable kindness today!
At the end of the night, once all the fun was had, Sandra (the photographer) went out of her way to deliver all of the wedding leftovers to the local homeless neighbors surrounding the area. This is the example we want to set, am I right?

Today’s styled wedding shoot was inspired by the vibrant and artistic East Nashville community that is home to Riverwood Mansion and incorporates the couple’s love for animals. With a casual, intimate ceremony under the shade of a 200 year old magnolia tree, and Southern front porch cocktails, the invitation was open of guests to bring their furry best friends. Eclectic decor from the hands of local artisans set the tone for a creative celebration of love. The doggie details were thoughtful and cohesive with the overall vision while fulfilling our heartfelt mission to find our couple’s foster pup, Etta, a local rescue dog, her forever home. The best part of this shoot is all the dogs were a part of a local rescue group and have since been adopted.
The best part of this shoot is all the dogs – especially the star of the day, Etta, who was (at the time) a part of a local rescue group – she has since been adopted.
