May … {where did you come from?}

First, let me start off by saying … HELLO, how are you?  

Second … whew … it’s been a busy year thus far, and I apologize for not blogging as much as normal {I know that apologizing for not blogging is the number one rule not to do when you’ve been an absent blogger, but I just feel the need to, so there you go, I’M SORRY … now I feel better and we can jump right in} 

This blog post is just going to be chalk full of what we have been up to lately, what we have cooking for the coming months and hopefully I can throw in a few beautiful photos while I’m at it … so, let’s get started! 

jacki and jaimeson, wedding and event planners …  

… we are LOVING our brides!!!  For the 2010 wedding season, we are doing design for almost all of our weddings and we are just THRILLED with what we have been able to come up with!  I don’t want to let any secrets out, but I can tell you that we are doing weddings as they’ve never been done at a few Kentucky venues … it’s going to be AMAZING!  Here are a few photos from some fabulous past brides, where we also did some “first” for weddings at Kentucky venues: 

first up is Katie {Miller} Willie – location was Headley-Whitney Museum and this was the first time the ceremony was down by the fence which overlooked the pond … a simply stunning location … 

photo by RedTree Photography

secondly we have Regan {Ladenburger} Jernigan – location was Shaker Village and this was the first time that the ceremony happened in a circle under the tree … this proved to be the perfect layout for Regan who wanted a very intimate feel and to also include every guest in her ceremony … 

 

Some other news that is going on with jacki and jaimeson is that we are honored to be partnering with Shelia Bayes Fine Jewelers for the Sunday Soirees.  Below is a poster with more information, but please mark your calendars for the following Sundays from 1 – 4pm … May 16, June 13, July 18 and August 15.  {stay tuned as there will be a post this week with a fabulous short video from ICVide0

 

Kentucky Bride Bridal Show … 

… we are gearing up for our July 11th bridal show that will be held at the Lexington Convention Center, Bluegrass Ballroom.  We just LOVE this bridal show and all of the wonderful vendors that participate … we are so blessed to work with such professional and bride conscious vendors that it really makes you feel guilty for saying that it’s your “J-O-B” when in actuality, it’s really just hanging out and promoting good people and good friends … how fun is that?  There will be alot more post and information coming your way about the Kentucky Bride Bridal Show, so no need to bog you down now.  Just mark you calendar for July 11th and get your $2.00 off coupon at www.kybride.com 

jacki allen’s Kentucky Bride magazine … 

WOW … is only one word that I can use to describe what 2010 has been for our little baby … we are so very proud!  Thus far in 2010, the Kentucky Bride magazine has won the GOLD Addy Award in the Lexington region and the SILVER Addy for the State … we are just blown away!  Also, as you’ve been reading and hearing about, we are now a quarterly publication … see our lovely first two front covers below … 

Winter 2010 issue

Spring 2010 issue

On top of producing the magazine quarterly, we have finalized all of our State-wide distributing!  This has been a very long process {sometimes you just never know what you’re getting into}, but with only five issues under our belts, we are the most widely spread distributed Kentucky based Bridal Magazine in the State!  WOW … again, that’s all I can say.  The Spring 2010 issue has already been SOLD OUT in some newsstands {after two weeks!} and we just continue to blush as to how well we are being received not only by brides, but by the businesses that see the benefit of Kentucky Bride! {don’t worry you can still order a Spring 2010 issue online}.  The Summer 2010 issue will hit the newsstands in July! 

Oh My Gosh … I have so much more stuff to tell, but it will take forever and I’m sure that I have not provided enough photos to keep you interested, so I will leave with a few bullet points of things to look for in the coming days, weeks and months on the blog … 

* Vendor Spotlights 

* Sunday Soiree Highlight Video 

* The Diamond Dash … oh, this is going to be so much fun … can’t wait to tell you the details 

* More Celebrate Kentucky companies 

* Kentucky Bride Magazine Survey {I promise I will get this information posted} 

There’s more, but I have to keep you on your toes {and visiting the blog} … so stay tuned.

Reagan and Michael’s Wedding Film … March 26, 2010

Portal Films … enough said!    Andy Jackson with Portal Films is simply AMAZING!   {let me set the scene real quick}

Regan and Michael’s wedding was simply stunning and we enjoyed so much working with the two love birds for the whole 14 months.  Their October 3, 2009 wedding was held at the quaint Shaker Village {a truly gorgeous backdrop}.  Regan and Michael currently live in Pittsburgh, PA and 85% of their guests were from out of state, so they wanted to show everyone true Southern Hospitality – which I think they achieved ten times over.

{pretty pictures and special details to come in a post soon}

Regan and Michael truly embraced this time in their lives and wanted to capture their feelings, style, and emotions on film so that they could cherish and remember for a lifetime.  They were able to achieve this with Portal Films

Below is a short four minute film that Andy was kind enough to put together so that we could share with the you.  So, please grab a tissue, turn on your volume and embrace what you are about to see and feel from this simply amazing film …

KBM Sales goes to help Melanoma … March 17, 2010

Remember back in February when I mentioned that Jacki and I would be donating all of the ONLINE Kentucky Bride Magazine sales to the Melanoma Awareness Program that is being housed with the wonderful Central Baptist Foundation? 

First, THANK YOU for all of your ONLINE orders!

Second, we have made the donation and it was in the amount of  … drumroll please … $1,000.00!!! 

Just to clarify - we DID NOT sell this amount from the ONLINE sales, but Jacki and I are so passionate about this organization and Melanoma Awareness that we decided to give a little more.

If you are interested in hearing Jacki’s personal story and/or would like to help with the Melanoma Awareness Program, we have some opportunities coming up …

*** We are so grateful to Lori Hagan of The Melting Pot who will be hosting TWO events with all the proceeds going to the Melanoma Awareness Program.  PLEASE Mark Your Calendars for Sunday, April 11th and Monday, April 12th to come out, have some fabulous fondue, enjoy wonderful company and support a fabulous cause.

Cheers to Kentucky …

By now, you know that we love to incorporate Kentucky into our weddings!  It is one of our favorite parts of planning!  Sometimes it is the unique “home” touch that makes a wedding feel really personable.  Incorporating Kentucky could be as simple or as lavish as you wish, and in all honesty we suggest both, depending on the couples style, personality, etc!  To make it really simple, you could offer THE Kentucky tradition … bourbon!

 

Do you know how many Bourbon Distilleries there are in Kentucky?  Well, I didn’t either … but there are SIX!  And within those six Distilleries, they produce over 50 different Bourbon labels … yes … I said over 50 different types of Bourbon!!!  Makers Mark, Jim Beam, Four Roses, Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey, Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek … just to name a few. 

So, exactly how can you use Kentucky bourbon in your wedding … here are some ideas off the top of our heads:

1.  Serve Kentucky bourbon at the reception!

2.  Bourbon balls {made with one of the listed above} as favors for the guest!  A great source for these is Old Kentucky Chocolates … tell them Jacki sent you!

3.  Welcome your guest to the Bluegrass in true Southern Hospitality style by including mini bottles of bourbon in their welcome basket!

4.  “A Shot to the Bluegreass” – have 1 special shot passed around of a Kentucky bourbon during your Toasts!

5.  The day before the wedding, host a lunch at a distillery for out-of-town guest.  This will allow all guests to feel welcomed into the Bluegrass and be able to enjoy one of the special touches that makes Kentucky so unique and beautiful! 

To learn more about Kentucky Bourbon … the history, the distilleries, The Bourbon Trail and so much more, please visit www.kybourbontrail.com – you will be glad you did.

If you are planning on including this Kentucky tradition into your wedding, please share … we love to hear all the wonderful ideas.

Tuesday’s could be my favorite day because of this! If you do not watch this show…it is ok…keep reading because this post is about weddings…which is our favorite topic!

The last bachelor, Jason, picked Molly (after originally picking Melissa-I have forgiven him!) and they are happily in love! In fact, they are getting married on MARCH 8th (tonight) and this will be a 2 hour episode of the before, during and after of the ceremony!

Above are some pictures of the beautiful ceremony of Trista and Ryan’s wedding…

We are counting down the days until Jason and Molly get married. We are sure it will be just as beautiful!

Celebrating love…

Lovely Wooden Escort Card Holders … February 24, 2010

I am here to share, and more importantly, show you some more fabulous Rental items we have!

We discussed our Lovely Wooden Tables HERE {just in case you want to take a second peek}.

Today, I would like to focus on how your special guests find their table {or more specifically their seat}.

As many of you know, there is a difference in an escort card and a place card.  Here is what you need to know:

ESCORT CARD:  A card given to the guests before they enter the reception that states the guest name and table number

PLACE CARD: A card that is already at the guest designated table and place setting.  Typically if there is no escort card, then there is a lovely way to let guests know which table they will be sitting at … this can be an escort card, a “map” of the reception, frames for each table with their names, and the list could go on and on!

So, for a fun, unique and simply Kentucky style wedding … we have custom made some Lovely Wooden Escort Card Holders.

 

Here’s the Info:

* Each Wooden Holder has 10 slats for cards

* Each Wooden Holder is 24 inches {2 ft} long

* Each Wooden Holder is stained a dark cherry

SO ….. what do you think?  We hope you like them just as much as we do!

If interested in renting these lovely wooden escort card holders for your wedding or special event, please contact our office at 859.271.1499 and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Celebrating Kentucky Natives … February 23, 2010

If there is one thing we love to incorporate into a wedding ………… it’s Kentucky!!!

No matter the product, tradition, venue or favor, we think honoring Kentucky in your wedding is fabulous!  We have just stumbled upon a Kentucky native that would be a great person to honor … Duncan Hines

Yes, the same Duncan Hines that has brought us brownie mix, cookie mix, muffin mix and frostings to go with it all! I love Mr. Hines … {my hips don’t} … but I do!

Duncan Hines origanlly started in Bowling Green, Kentucky before branching out to Procter and Gamble!

So the question is … How can I honor Duncan Hines at my wedding?!  This is so easy … have milk and brownie shooters. Ask your caterer to make bite-sized Duncan Hines brownies and serve them in shot glasses full of milk.

 

This is great for the after party OR for a subistute for cake  OR a midnight snack OR any occassion that you want them for!

Let us know your ideas and send in your pretty pics …

Tutu’s for Flowergirls …

FLOWER GIRLS …   There are so many sweet things to say about these cute little girls that let guests know the bride is on her way by creating a walk way for her.  Most flowergirls take their job very seriously and believe they have important duties for the day!

A hot new trend for brides is to have a “party dress” for the reception.  How cute would it be for the flower girl to have one as well? As we know, the flower girl is the bride’s mini-me for the day! 

At the Kentucky Bride Bridal Show, a new vendor, Tutu’s and Teacups, had adorable tutu’s for flowergirls. 

Below are more photos of the precious Tutu’s and Teacups collection which is available at Mod Boutique and Sugar and Spice!

          

Also, in the new issue of  Kentucky Bride Magazine, there is an article featuring tutu’s {modeled by Jaime’s daughter, Gracie, and Julie’s daughter, Story}.  These lovely tutu’s were provided by Miss Priss Tutus www.missprisstutus.com

girls just want to have fun … and these girls are smiling the whole time they are “dressed up”

 

jaimeson’s personal favorite … just had to put in

 

love this shot of the girls running …

 

and after all of that running … the girls are just gabbin’ by the fire {ah bliss}

 

So, if you’ve already chosen that perfect flower girl dress that coordinates with your colors and style for the ceremony, don’t forget that  Tutu’s would be a great THANK YOU present from the couple, especially if the little ladies could wear them to the “dance party” {a.k.a. reception} as their own party dress!!!

Sweet Sunday … February 7, 2010

I LOVE SUNDAY …

on this Sunday, I would like to share with you something very SWEET!

Not only do I love Sunday’s, I love the photography of Elizabeth Messina {she’s AMAZING}.

In reading her blog Kiss The Groom - I always get inspiration from the simplicity of her photos that speak volumes. 

On this particular day, I got inspired by an idea she shared for lovely brides to try …

can you just imagine her idea?

I’ll give you one hint … it has to with the perfume!  Want to know more, visit this sweet post !

Lovely Canvas … February 5, 2010

Let me set the scene …

* New Offices {we moved to our current location in May}

* New Paint {we painted everything – and our signature green is on one wall in every room – very fun}

* NEED – new photos

This is where Josh Perkins with RedTree Photography comes into the “picture”!!!

Josh, the gentleman that he is, offers to do three canvases for our new space with our choice of photos.  How thoughtful and generous!

We’ve worked on some AMAZING weddings where RedTree Photography was involved so we knew the two weddings that we wanted to focus on.  From there – it took us a while – as there were so many beautiful photos.

We narrowed it down to the three below … {two of them are on our green walls}

 

 

 

 

WE ARE SMITTEN!!!  THANK YOU REDTREE!!!

It’s So Pretty … February 4, 2010

 

When you are a bride, you receive lovely presents from the time you become engaged until the day of your wedding! The time is truly about YOU and your GROOM!! Although, you must not forget the sweet little “thank you” gifts along the way.  

Favors are needed at the bachelorette party, bridal brunch, bridal shower, welcome baskets and on the big day! The It’s So Pretty Shop - by Kate Aspen has some precious favors that are the perfect “Thank You” for your guest of any occasion!

Below are some of our favorite favors … Click Here to go to the home page of It’s So Pretty and see more favors!

From the favors above…

1. Lemonade Mix-This could be used in SO many ways…at a bridal brunch-a package could be at each ladies place setting, in a welcome basket, for the lovely ladies hosting the bridal shower, at a bachelorette party (add a party size vodka and you can have a lemon drop martini in no time!), or as a favor at an outdoor reception. The lemonade could be used in so many ways … let us know how you use it!!

2. Personalized Flip Flops – the PERFECT bridesmaid gift.  Sure, you want your ladies to wear nice heels and look their best at all times of the day, but, when their feet start hurting….it’s going to be hard to put a smile on their face! The bridesmaid could slip on these flip-flops for the dance party at your reception! After the wedding festivities, the bridesmaid would instantly reminisce on all of your wedding day memories each time she wore them!

3. Flower Bottle Stopper – again, this is a versatile favor that you could be used endlessly. How about give the flower bottle stopper to the bridesmaids? the ladies that attend the bridal brunch? Don’t forget to keep one for yourself!

4. Personalized Travel Candles-How cute are these in a welcome basket? They are easily personalized, so put the couple’s name on them and add to the welcome basket! These are perfect for all the out-of-town guest!!

Lovely Wooden Tables … January 28, 2010

You’ve seen them in national bridal magazines, you’ve dreamt of them for you wedding … NOW, you can HAVE THEM!!!

As mentioned in this POST, with the lovely wooden table below, I said I would tell you how you could have these fabulous wooden tables for YOUR WEDDING …

wooden table available for rent from jacki and jaimeson

 

Here are a few photos of the lovely wooden table by itself so that you can see all the details …

wood family style table available for rent from jacki and jaimeson

wood family style table available for rent from jacki and jaimeson

wood family style table available for rent from jacki and jaimeson

{don’t you just LOVE the details and knots in the tables – very rustic}

 

Here’s a little HISTORY on how these lovely wooden tables came to be …

In doing a design layout for one of our brides who really wanted a southern, rustic, family oriented, intimate, simply stunning, and of course some elements that haven’t been done in Kentucky yet.  So, with that long list of descriptive words and some “tear sheets” of photos that she liked, Jacki and I got to work.  We were SO excited for this layout and the possibilities that we knew we weren’t going to be able to “rent” most of the items for the wedding and that we would need to find someone to “build” what we needed.

And that’s where it all began …

In doing our design, and keeping her descriptive words in the forefront, we knew that we wanted to have WOOD FAMILY STYLE TABLES!  So, in our search for these tables, we quickly came to the realization that – 1) there were none in Kentucky or the surrounding states that were available for rent – 2) The budget wouldn’t allow for purchasing brand new dining room tables that we envisioned – 3) The bride would have no use or place for all these tables after the wedding.

LIGHT BULB WENT OFF …

We didn’t need to find the tables, we needed to find a woodwooker that could build us the tables to our specs and needs, could build them affordably, and was also talented enough to make us other lovely wood items that we were dreaming of!  So, after a little digging and price quoting, we found him … our MR. CAN-DO!!!  And as you can see from the above pictures … Mr. Can-Do is very talented.

 

Here’s the information you need to know …

* The tables are available for RENT

* The tables are 7 ft long and 3 ft deep   {plenty of room for 8 or 10 guests to each table}

* The tables are stained a dark cherry

* Each table is unique in it’s dents and knots – to give it a true lived in feel

 

If interested in renting these lovely wooden tables for your wedding or special event, please contact our office at 859.271.1499 and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

SO …. what do you think?  We would love to hear your thoughts!  We have had MR. CAN-DO make a few other lovely wooden items that we will post about later, but have had some buzz about the tables, so we wanted to get the information out there.
