The perfect way for out of town guests to meet and mingle is at a party before the wedding! Jackie & Omar's pre-wedding party took place at the Encore Building in Nashville the night before their wedding. Being an event coordinator, Jackie put her skills to work to create a fun, personal, and delicious event for her guests to enjoy! Guests enjoyed liquor-filled strawberries, whiskey tastings, and a tree with photos of Jackie & Omar that was surrounded by the buffet.

A FRENCH QUARTER ENGAGEMENT

On May 21st, the night of Allie's birthday, Shannon planned a trip to the French Quarter for the two of them. When questioned why she was so excited, Allie kept saying it was because she had butterflies, but in truth, she was holding a ring in her pocket! After dinner, they went to Lafitte's Bar for drinks. Allie asked Shannon if she knew what would make her birthday even better. Se then got on one knee and pulled out the ring. For Shannon, the rest is a complete blur from her state of bliss!
