Vendor Spotlight: Puffy Muffin

Happy Wednesday!! It’s wedding week for a lot of Nashville brides & our planners are working to create amazing weddings. We are featuring Puffy Muffin this week & all the great things services they provide.

What services do you provide for brides?

Puffy Muffin offers complimentary wedding cake tastings and design services with the bride and groom.

We can provide both the meal and the cake! We have talented culinary chefs for the savory side as well as cake artists and pastry chefs to create masterpiece cakes, desserts and pastries.

We will make every effort to accommodate every bride’s budget… to include a buffet of assorted desserts and pastries, or a “side” cake for large weddings.

Vendor Spotlight: Cedarmont Farms

Tell us about your venue.

Cedarmont Farm is a 50 acre property highlighted by an antebellum home built in 1815. The property features a beautiful pond with fountain, three barns, historic mansion, as well as rolling fields and large reflecting pool with stone deck.

What makes your venue different from other venues?

Cedarmont Farm is a boutique wedding venue so we are more concerned with the quality of our events than the quantity. We would much rather have a few beautiful weddings that our clients are 100% happy with than a lot of events that all end up looking and feeling rushed.

 

What is the history of your venue? (How did it get started, etc.)

I grew up on the property and started working in events. When the property was not being used by my family as much and all the kids had grown up and moved on, I realized it would be the perfect venue for weddings and events.

What are some of your wedding and reception options?

We have three different all inclusive packages for weddings and receptions but we also offer the venue for ceremonies only or receptions only and we rent out the property a la carte as well.

Does your venue require use of your preferred vendors, or are brides free to bring their own?

We have a list of preferred vendors but brides may bring their own as long as we approve them.

 

In your opinion, which event (or type of event) has most creatively taken advantage of your venue, and what made that event a success?

Weddings that move around the property. A ceremony at the pond or in the fields, a cocktail hour by the pool and then a reception on the front lawn in front of the historic house. The guests get to see the size and beauty of the entire property that way.

Nashville Wedding Planner Series: “Wedding Planner versus Venue Coordinator”

As a group of Nashville Wedding Planners, we want to take the time to educate brides & vendors about us. Why is it important to hire us? What do we do? How can we help? All questions that many have wondered, so every Monday in the month of May we’ll be addressing these questions & many more in our Nashville Wedding Planner Series!

First topic, “The difference between an Independent Wedding Planner & an Venue Coordinator” from one of our planners Tiffani with Creative Designs & Events.

An independent wedding planner works for their client, the bride & groom. They will assist & work along with all the vendors participating with your wedding, plus with family & friends. They will listen to your needs & desires, in order to make them happen on your wedding day. The wedding planner will be there with you from the day you book them through the entire planning process, (depending on the services you book) as well as wedding day. The wedding planner will verify your cake has arrived, pack your wedding gifts at the end of the night.

A venue coordinator works for the venue. They facilitate the needs of the venue. They do not work for the bride & groom & will not help you with details or logistic outside of the venue. Now they may offer help or recommendations, but ultimately they will not assist you through the planning process of booking those vendors.

Having a venue coordinator doesn’t mean that your wedding details will run as smoothly as possible. As I suggest to very bride, no matter what your budget is, book a wedding planner!
