Evan’s Favorite Things– Day 2

HOLY MOLY! You guys don’t play! You came to win! So fun watching all the comments and IG posts roll in yesterday.

If you’re just now tuning in, It’s FAVORITE THINGS. Over the next 5 days I’ll be posting my  8 of my Favorite Things that I couldn’t live without in 2015. If you missed yesterday’s Favorite Thing’s post there’s still time to enter. Click Here. 2015-12-14_0004

 

If you were like the rest of America you were probably watching the Adele special on NBC last night. If you weren’t you can leave now. I watched it twice, it was that good. Today’s giveaway is one of the BEST things that happened in 2015. If you see me driving down the freeway, you’ll more than likely  catch me jamming out to Adele’s newest album “25”. It has been at the top of the charts for weeks and her single “Hello” broke every record possible in the music industry. It had the biggest Sales Week for a single since Elton John’s Princess Diana Tribute in 1997 and it was the first song ever to sell 1 million downloads in a week. I’m in love with every song on this album. I’ve sang my little heart out an even cried too. You won’t be disappointed. She just released tour dates for her North American tour next year.

Alabama vs. LSU

As most of you know I went to my VERY FIRST College football game a few weeks back. (Click Here to see previous post) I guess I couldn’t get enough and decided it wasn’t too soon to go again. We didn’t go to just any game, we went to the rivalry game of the year.. AL/LSU. It was CRAZY. Pouring rain and all.

If you’ve every been to an Alabama game at Bryant Denny Stadium you know it’s part tradition to go to the walk of champions. So we started my second adventure in T-Town there. 2015-11-13_0004 Of course you can’t go to a game without tailgating. It might be my new favorite thing. Y’all know I LOVE a good party. Free Food and Drinks. SIGN ME UP. I called one of my Favorite past clients, Mother of the Bride and told her I was in town and wanted to stop by. She treated us right. Thanks Mrs. Donna for having us.  2015-11-13_0005 Obligatory panoramic stadium photo. 2015-11-13_0008 Roll Tide America. I’ve learned all the chants and cheers and I’m a pro at shaking that Shaker.   2015-11-13_0007 Ok. If you personally know this usher, please send him my thanks. His dance skills were impeccable during half time. I think I will forever have that image imbedded in my brain. Andrew kept nudging me throughout the game… “Look the Usher”. His choreographer routine to UpTown Funk was my favorite. #Hilarious  2015-11-13_0009 Number 1, folks. Andrew was like a kid in a candy store after the win. He was hyped up the rest of the evening (his vocal skills on the ride home were on point). Alabama killed LSU. 30-16. Thanks AGB for putting up with my shenanigans. I would’t have wanted to experience the game with anyone else. You da best! #biffles 2015-11-13_0010 You knew it was coming….You asked for it!! Here it is folks. Part 2 of #EGCdoescollegefootball Share, Share, Share. 

Then There Was Paint

This past weekend felt like a dream. I was on cloud 9.  Finally, I can see the office starting to take shape. It’s such a rewarding feeling. Remember my post from last week? The “Before”? Well, It’s looking a little different now…. 2014-11-09_0067 After a loss of sleep, a couple of aspirin and multiple trips to the Benjamin Moore store, we finally decided on a color. I will be the first to admit, I wasn’t a fan of the wall color at first. I called Brian in a panic the other day after we “tested” the paint on the wall. Once it dried I was sold. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! High Five, B!  2014-11-09_0068 Can you guess what we chose? If you guessed Equestrian Gray, HIVE FIVE! You win a cookie!  2014-11-09_0069  I thought picking out paint colors was tough, but a floor?!? That’s on another level. Thankfully We agreed on the winning floor  AND it was the cheapest option. I’m not mad about that!  2014-11-09_0071 Remember the mantle we picked up the other day?! It will live on this wall. It also got a facelift. Any guesses? 2014-11-09_0070 Square Footage Measurements: Check  By the way, that’s not my chicken scratch.  2014-11-09_0072 Stripes? No Stripes? It required a meeting of the minds. But of course, we chose stripes. Who wouldn’t have? That mantle is going to look INSANE against them. 2014-11-09_0073 We moved some furniture around, hung a light fixture and BOOM! It looks like a different space. I’m obsessed. Of course it looks much different now since these photos were taken over the weekend, but We CAN’T WAIT for you guys to see the new space. 2014-11-09_0074 Of course we’ll be posting updates through out the process of #EGCrenovates but to see it for yourself make sure your present at our 2014 Holiday Open House. You aren’t going to want to miss it. Live Music, Yummy Treats and Swags. MARK YOUR CALENDARS. If you do plan on coming head on over to our Facebook Event Page and click “Going”. See ya there!  2014-11-11_0002

Rachel + Luke

Laura here! Evans really AWESOME new assistant. YES! Evan has a new assistant, and YES I rock.

Weddings are one of my favorite things to watch.  The flowers, the music, the colors, all of it put together to specifically describe that couple, the journey they have had together, and the one they are about to encounter. NOW, I get to watch how they are put together by the COOLEST wedding planner around.  Evan has true talent in capturing each bride’s personality and making her day perfectly fit for her.

Rachel and Luke’s wedding was immaculate.  It was a true classic southern wedding, from their church ceremony to a gorgeous reception at the country club.  Rachel’s bouquet was breathtaking with her ivory and white, lace dress… and who doesn’t LOVE lace? With the guys fancied up in their tuxedos and the bridesmaids in their flowing, floor length dresses, this whimsical wedding was an absolute dream. Of course we couldn’t do what we do without a team of FANTASTIC Vendors. Thanks Guys! You truly helped make The Hall’s wedding day what they dreamed of!
