After years of blogging personally + professionally, searching for the latest + greatest wedding inspiration accounts on social media, + dreaming of one day owning my own business, I’m overjoyed to combine my loves to bring you Nashville Bride Guide! Let’s throw it back to 2008 - one of these professional blogs I worked for was in fact Nashville Bride Guide, in a different form - it was called Ashley’s Bride Guide. My long time knowledge of the blog both as an employee + a client propelled me to take ownership in 2016 and I couldn’t be more excited to bring you fresh content on NBG!

I’m originally from the Chicago area, but Nashville has been my home base for 9 years and it’s since given me an eye for design and cutting-edge trends in the local wedding industry. I had a blast during my 3 1/2 years as Marketing & Design Manager at a leading Nashville rental company - designing table scapes, hosting styled shoots, blogging DIY wedding crafts, designing ads + more (aka - living in a Pinterest board!). Wedding design has always made my heart flutter and helping brides find what they were looking for gives me the greatest joy! I know what it’s like to be a bride searching hours upon hours for the perfect image or vendor to help create my vision, so I’m here to help you streamline this process by giving you access to everything a Nashville bride could want! I also love meeting local wedding professionals, hearing their stories and showcasing their talent, which is why I SO enjoyed my role of Vice President for the Tennessee Wedding and Event Specialists Association (TWESA) from 2016-2017.

What’s a girl to do when she’s not blogging? In my free time you’ll find me hanging out at The Factory and downtown Franklin, having dance parties with my three-nager, cuddling my newborn, watching the Bachelor, listening to small business podcasts, cheering on the Blackhawks (sorry Preds fans!) and visiting family up north with my husband and two kids.

Do we have anything in common? Let’s be digital pen pals - feel free to email me at alyssa@nashvillebrideguide.com!

Cheers, Alyssa
