#GivingTuesday - Discovery Clubs

Here in our little town of Birmingham, we have so many wedding vendors that I have personally seen that give back to their communities when they think no one is watching.  For today’s #GivingTuesday post, I want to introduce you to a talented floral designer and guitar playing extraordinaire, Carol Harris (Lillie Jane’s).  I’m sure Carol, and her family are laughing hysterically at me calling her a guitar playing extraordinaire.  But for years now, she takes that guitar every Tuesday to an inner-city school and along with her mom, sings and encourages young girls.  Carol has commented on the excitement in those girls’ eyes when they see her coming. According to the website, Discovery Clubs are "after-school Bible clubs that offer fun, safe and inspirational activities that help children learn the love of Christ."

One of the really cool things about doing these GivingTuesday posts is that I get to learn about all of the different ways we, as a community, can help.  I didn't know that Discovery Club was a ministry connected to the Jimmie Hale Mission. I thought that the JHM has just to help homeless men and women.  It's pretty neat that they are able to go into the schools and really love on children that might need a little hope in this world.

I sure do love finding wonderful examples of our wedding community giving back even during non-holiday times. Well done, Carol!

Main Street Productions will become Cinepear in early 2016.

Natalie and Ryan at St. Elias and Embassy Suites

What do you get when you take approximately 700 people in nice clothing ready to have a great evening?  Natalie and Ryan's wedding guests! Needless to say, it was standing room only for their beautiful ceremony at St. Elias. And really standing room only for their reception at the new Embassy Suites in Hoover, but that was because EVERYONE was on the dance floor! It was wild! But we wouldn't have it any other way.

The day wouldn't have gone near as smoothly without the direction of Beverly Andrews with Engaging Celebrations.  Beautiful flowers everywhere by Carol Riley with Lillie's.

Other vendors included:
