    Confluence Resort Wedding // Jen & Carling

    Jen and Carling are another one of those couples like us who run a business together. We love meeting other business-owning couples because it really takes a special sort of dynamic to make everything work smoothly. If we had a dollar for every time someone has said, “I would KILL my significant other if I worked with them”, well, then, we’d have a lot more money to spend on cat toys at Target.

    Anyway, Carling and Jen pulled off a sweaty (it was 95 degrees) & sentimental celebration that included so many amazing local vendors. They’re active in the community and know how important it is to shop local, so pretty much all of their vendors and wares were sourced by other local businesses. 

    Now, we don’t like to pick favorites when it comes to wedding venues and vendors, but…. we got engaged at the Confluence Resort and we just love the vibe of Confluence weddings. And Pervis Major is absolutely someone you want to work with if you’re planning a wedding; he’s seen it all and takes great care of you and your guests without hovering. So, their venue was automatically a big fat YES.

    Emily of Base Camp Printing Company created the most wonderful invitations and wedding favors (journals). Carling’s sister Kelby (of Kelby Designs) made the timeless wedding ring set. Fish Hawk Acres cooked up some seriously delicious burgers and accoutrements. Bessie’s Floral created perfect flower arrangements (that somehow didn’t immediately wilt in the oppressive heat). Mark Davis of Vinyl Village spun the best records and kept the dance floor packed. And we definitely can’t forget the infamous Spring Hill Pastry Shop hot dog pastries

    But Jen & Carling’s families really made this day shine. Talk about an inspiring and supportive group of people! There were so many hugs and happy tears.
