Veronica Wins 'Geny's Best Marriage Proposal !'


We want to congratulate Veronica Hampton for her entry in our “Do You Have the Best Marriage Proposal Story Ever?” promotion.

As our winner, she and her husband Steve will receive a gift certificate for $100 for dinner at Jeff Ruby’s in downtown Nashville.

Veronica and Steve were married just last year and Veronica shared the special story of when Steve proposed:


The day started with my now-husband saying, “You should go get your hair done.” So, I go and then once I am done he says, “Why don’t go to the Mac counter to get your make up done? I want us to get some pictures made.” I make it home, get dressed and, of course, we have same color scheme on.

He said, “We’re going to take pics in the gulch.” But, we make one more stop at Off Broadway Shoes and he purchases some really cute heels to go with my summer outfit. (Little did I know this was leading up to our engagement moment.) So, we get to the gulch location and this photographer we both know was there waiting. At this point, I still didn’t know what was going on!

We start taking pictures and I noticed the photographer was playing a song about “marry me” but, I still didn’t know what was going on. I notice my Steve goes over and starts talking to the photographer and I am thinking to myself… what is taking him so long?

So, Steve walks over to me and says, “You know I love you and I know we have been through a lot.” And he got down on one knee and said, “I want to spend rest of my life with you… will you marry me?”

He had planned this for weeks and I had no idea! He made it seem as if we were just doing a photo shoot. It was a day I will never forget!

Nashville Real Weddings with Michelle & Michael


Prep, Ceremony, & Reception – Union Station Hotel

With a venue as grand as the newly renovated Union Station, flowers don't have to be fussy.   So when Michelle came to us about the flowers for her and Michael's wedding back in June, we knew just what to do.

We weren't trying to compete with the beautiful venue with the flowers.  We were looking to enhance the beauty.  We chose a very soft color palette of dusty miller, sweet eskimo pal pink roses, white hydrangea and pale pink calecinia heather for some texture.  This helped play off the jewel tones and gold accents of the venue.   

Candles bring tons of warmth to the largest of places and we hi-lighted the mantle with dozens of them and tucked in dusty miller and pale pink roses.

Bouquets and centerpieces all followed suit with the same flowers.  In looking at the fabulous Stevie Ramos' blog post, we think Michelle did an incredible job planning and making the whole thing look seamless and effortless. And Stevie did an awesome job of capturing the night!  Be sure to check out her entire blog post.

We were honored to be a part of this beautiful day.

Is there an Engagement Ring in your future?

engagement rings

Any time is a good time to get engaged.  Not many ladies are going to complain about a proposal at an unexpected time. But as we near the Holidays, there are going to be more than a few who do get engaged before (or at) the New Year. And that often means an engagement ring.

Engagement rings

Bridal fashions enjoy trends, and so it is with jewelry and engagement rings. Just as with our exclusive line of Ellis Bridal wedding dresses, your ring can make a statement. And like a gown, a ring can reflect a sense of elegance or tradition, a vintage flair or creative sophistication.

No doubt you have an idea of the kind of ring you would prefer, and maybe have poured over magazines and darted into a jewelry store 'just to look'. There are all sorts of cons to shopping for a ring with your future husband. It more or less eliminates the opportunity to be truly suprised when he pops the question. And he might feel he has to spend more than he can afford if you are along for shopping. But, on the plus side, shopping together ensures you get something you really love.

You can always leave a hint or two, with a magazine clipping or an open browser image. There are so many options these days for where your man can purchase a ring. Geny's Bridal works closely with Genesis Diamonds in both Nashville and Cool Springs, so conventional jewelry stores are an obvious choice. And there are well-known trustworthy, online purveyors of rings. Etsy features stunning, unique rings that make beautiful engagement rings... and of course, there is always Pinterest for an endless supply of ideas.

To add to the romance, Ellis Bridal features The History of: The Engagement Ring. And the concept goes back a long, long way! So brush up on a little history as you think about the future that is in store for you!

Tennessee Fall Weddings with a Hat Tip to Britain

Fall Flowers

What could be more beautiful than a wedding in the Fall? Warm, rich colors... gentle breezes as the air cools... an ambiance that suggests Mother Nature is truly in attendance.

‘Autumn is nature’s last, and loveliest, smile’

Fall Flowers




When we think about fall here in middle Tennessee we usually have visions of pumpkins, sunflowers, and cornstalks dancing in our heads.

But when it comes to Fall Weddings, we like to add a little more refinement for the occasion. We are taking a nod from our friends at Ellis Bridals ( check out their blog post “The Fall Wedding”).

With Fall, comes a different elegance - one you can make your own.  It's a popular season for matrimony, planned to be ahead of the holidays so they are truly yours to spend together. And while we share much with our British friends, we know you can take the beautifully styled Ellis gowns and add your own lovely, warm flavors to the mix.

And, to celebrate the “British Style” for Fall we have picked a plethora of our more subdued fall florals for your viewing pleasure...

You are at Table No. 1 - Customized Wedding Centerpieces


Those Pesky Table Number Signs   Personally, I hate those pesky table number signs at weddings and events.  I know they are necessary, but it is always nice when they are functional and ornamental as well. 

Let's Customize Those Wedding Centerpieces

Erin, our fabulous new floral designer, also LOVES to write on everything.

And, since she is so awesome at it, we are going to let her.  Our latest collaboration gave birth to this beautiful centerpiece box.  We can customize the color scheme to fit your event. We can put whatever you want inside the box and we can use numbers, names, song titles... whatever your heart desires on the boxes.


 Even if you are not doing assigned seating, we can still customize a look for a truly unique touch to your reception.
