SO many people are getting engaged this MONTH! EEEEEE! So I have been inspired to share my experience with the talented Alexandrea Cantrell, who was #DollyTysTheKnot ‘s Wedding Planner this past June! I have added Alex’s contact information at the end of this post, so you can send any inquiries about wedding planning her way!
Who is Alexandrea Cantrell
Alexandrea (Alex) is a Nashville native who has always had a heart for art and design. She graduated from Lipscomb University in May of 2014 with a degree in Art Therapy. Throughout college she planned various events. She also directed a show and designed many different sets. Alex also spent some time interning at Anthropologie working on in-store design. Through all of these experiences she learned a lot about organization, multi-tasking, and she really fell in love with the entire design process. Alex was married to a man named TJ in November of 2014. She planned and designed her own wedding. All decorations were either hand-made or thrifted- and the result was an absolute dream. It was within her wedding that she discovered her passion and eye for wedding design and planning. Alex is always on the look out for antiques and thrift store treasures to which she brings new life. She loves taking elements from nature and bringing them indoors. She has experience and is trained in painting, drawing, wood-working, sewing, weaving and general 3-D design.
Working with Alex was easy & fun! Alex is, by nature, a very chill/relaxed/and calm lady. So having her help me plan my wedding was great because she def balanced out my frantic/overly panicked brain because I did tend to freak out ALOT with #DollyTysTheKnot (No it’s NOT because I was a bridezilla…it’s because I just didn’t know what I was doing half the time, and as a result I would end up crying ALOT because I assumed my wedding would be a disaster b/c of my lack of wedding knowledge) #TRUTH
On a professional note, Alex was very communicative and very organized as well. She was not only easy to work with because of her calm nature, but she stayed on top of her communication game with all of my wedding vendors, which also made the wedding planning process easy and stress-free! I knew I could depend on Alex to take care of any lose-ends with all the vendors, and she even took the time to make a spreadsheet for me and Ty so that we could have a ‘home-base’ of all things wedding related.
Lastly, I am so happy I used Alex because she is has a great work ethic + a sweet spirit. On a personal note, I have known Alex since she was in college and knowing her through an Indian mission trip we both went on really helped solidify that I was making the right choice in having her oversee everything #DollyTysTheKnot related. I knew I could trust her, I knew she would have a good vision for the wedding (because of her creative talents), and I knew she would help me along the way (b/c of her calming attitude)!
If you are looking for a Nashville-based wedding planner, Alex is your gal! You will not regret your decision, and you will have so much fun getting to know her! For more information, please visit her website: AC Weddings
