Things you’d write home to your Momma about: First, I would pull out a ‘thank you’ card and address it to my mom and dad. Their love and support gave me the courage to follow my dreams by creating Lovegood Wedding and Event Rentals. My parents are my cheerleaders, and I could not have done this crazy adventure without them. They have been married for 30 years and inspire me to love and do good for others. I would finish my letter with, “P.S. Lovegood is now a Blue Ribbon Vendor for Southern Weddings! Yay!”
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Even though we like to think outside the box for our brides when it comes to some elements for their wedding, Lovegood is all about Southern wedding traditions. We adore monograms, bridal portraits, and a good bottle of bourbon buried before the big day.
Favorite part of a wedding day? We love everything about the reception! From the first dance to cake cutting, we enjoy seeing the newlyweds and their guests have the best time socializing and dancing the night away. Relax, and take it all in!
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? At the end of your wedding day the best thing has happened: you married your best friend, soul mate, and love of your life.
