Just over a year ago, one of the sweetest, most beautiful couples, Lauren and Jamaal, wed at Nashville City Club. In addition to the joy that I have while serving as the planner for a bride, this experience was particularly special.  A number of years ago, I worked in an office at Tennessee State University with the bride’s mother! Yep, her mom. When Lauren contacted me, it took me a moment to catch my breath. I was touched that she reached out to me and yet amazed at how time flies. I remember Lauren as a little cutie pie that occasionally joined her mom at her office at TSU. Now, there she was, a grown woman ready to become a wife. Adding to my heart tug was the fact that I learned the ropes of Event Planning in that very same office!

This wonderful couple has made it through their first year. Join me as I reminisce on that sweet day and say Congratulations to Jamaal and Lauren Shepard (Oh, and I did include a few extra Mother of the Bride photos, of course!)
