A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get invited to attend the RT Lodge Familiarization trip. RT Lodge is a beautiful destination wedding venue in East Tennessee and one of my best friends and favorite people in the world is the event coordinator and sales director, Alex Stockton. Alex truly has an amazing gift and I feel so lucky that she wanted to include My Kind of Lovely in this trip!
So the Familiarization Trip was basically a promotional weekend for the lodge where they hosted wedding professionals, planners, photographers, designers, florists and more to show off the property. Alex planned ah-mazing events the whole three days we were there from nice candle lit dinners in the lodge on the first night to a pretty killer all white party on the lawn on the last night! I just wanted to share a few of Natalie Watson’s photos from the trip because they were amazing! So here’s a few of her photos of dinner from the first night along with my dinner outfit and I’ll share the rest tomorrow!
Alex & Katie planned and executed the trip perfectly! They are a pretty killer team! (Shop Katie’s dress here)
Oh, and did I mention Alex is married to the Chef? Coming for Chef Trev’s food was enough reason to drop everything and join in on the Fam Trip!
And the florals? They’re from a hometown guy who just recently started his own business and who I’m so happy for & proud of, Colby West. He killed it on all of the arrangements!
And on to my outfit! I fell in love with this jumpsuit and had intended to wear it for Easter this year. Welp, I spent Easter in bed with the flu so I was happy I had a reason to get dressed up and wear it for the welcome dinner. I just added a little blush pink clutch and a turquoise earring and I was all set!
