October 4, 2009 Adornments’ own Laura Lempke married Nashville native James Dugger.

The Adornments team really went all out for the occasion producing announcements, invitations, and jewelry as well as calling on guest artists Charlie Thompson and Olia Zavozina for more!  As you can see from the images, courtesy of Gray Photography, the results were well worth the effort of all the amazing contributing artists!

Fun at the Franklin Bridal Ball

October 13, 2009 at 7:51 PM (Adornments News) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

A couple of weeks ago Adornments participated in the yearly Franklin Bridal Ball, held right here in the Factory at Franklin!

It was a pretty busy day- but we had a great time meeting with local brides and their families!

Nashville area brides were out in force to check out the local wedding vendors and get ideas, and Adornments excels at unique ideas for those special finishing touches (if I do say so myself!). We had a great variety of hand made jewelry and invitations on display. As always brides are encouraged to discuss their ideas with us and work with our designers to create something unique just for them!

Sample papers on display for inspiration in designing your own invitation!

Toward the end of the evening the Bridal Ball put on a fashion show featuring our favorite local designer, Olia Zavozina and you know we had to get our jewelry on the catwalk too!! Handily enough, our booth was right next to Olia’s too.

Laura and Lucinda are both sporting custom fashion designs by Olia and doubled as models for the fashion show!! Need I mention the amazing jewelry we’re wearing? Check it out!!

Here are some shots from the fashion show.. why do models always look so cranky??
