Founder of Draper James Nashville store – Reese Witherspoon said it first,
“Be charming if you
can; witty if you must.
But always have grace.”
Last week we photographed a corporate event in Nashville with Darcy Miller, Editor-at-large of Martha Stewart Weddings. She recently published a remarkable book focusing on how to host the perfect party. The book, “Celebrate Everything” is available at all your major book resellers. Darcy has extensive knowledge in both the wedding industry and hosting a great event. While photographing, I spoke with a girl waiting in line to get her book signed. She said. “This book’s inspiration is so refreshing to me. Newly engaged, I spend hours on Pinterest trying to plan efficiently, and it is so hard to sift through online. This book has everything I need to host the perfect Nashville wedding while incorporating everything I love!”.
As for Draper James, It was the perfect event location for Darcy’s book signing. Bright, elegant, southern charm which pairs perfectly with the book’s design. Just like Darcy spoke of in her book, the store reflected everything the perfect host should have when hosting the finest party. Mini sweet treats, complimentary champagne, great style, and most importantly, southern hospitality.
Reese Witherspoon’s store is located in the district of 12 South. Every time we visit the area we fall in love with the characteristics of the buildings that still stand. With Nashville’s new growth and modernized apartments and buildings, (which we love design wise), it’s fun to step back into the district of 12 South and grab dinner or shop in an area with so much southern charm.
Catering set up included key lime flavored mini spoon bites, mini glasses of milk with chocolate chip cookies on top, chocolate cake truffles, and beautiful blush peony floral arrangments.
This event wouldn’t have been possible without the style and coordination of Karen Kaforey, Nashville wedding planner, and owner of Signature Events. Her style and attention to detail are always spot.
