When my now-husband and I decided to elope, we did not realize how much planning and detail even an elopement would require.  As busy working adults, we knew that we would need help planning our special event, especially around the holidays.  Not knowing a lot about Nashville, we were mainly interested in staying in a specific hotel, the Opryland Resorts, for our honeymoon.  We were unsure how to go about planning our wedding.  Still, we knew we could rely on Sharon Edwards with L & S Weddings and Occasion  Designers and  Ellery Edwards (LASEWOD PHOTOGRAPHY) to arrange everything and capture this special event for us.  Sharon and Ellery listened to our ideas and pitched ideas of their own.  Before we knew it, Sharon called us with all the details from the wedding venue, photo time, and reception dinner reservations.

On our wedding day, we flew into Nashville and checked into our hotel.  Almost immediately upon our arrival, Sharon and Ellery were there to assist with anything to ensure we were ready.  Things ran smoothly on a tight schedule while capturing special moments with our small bridal party.  Then, we headed out to the Belmont Mansion located on the beautiful campus of Belmont University to get married; everything timed perfectly.  The small ceremony was beautiful.  Finally, we arrived back at the Opryland Resort in plenty of time for more Christmas wedding photos before our reception dinner held at the Hickory Steak House inside Opryland Resorts.  Sharon took care of all the details; she surprised us with beautiful champagne flutes and cake-cutting and serving utensils for our reception pictures. 


While there were a few minor mishaps on the restaurant and bakery side of the reception, Sharon relentlessly worked to see we were thoroughly and overly compensated.  Once we were home, we received our photos from Ellery and were just blown away at the moments he captured.  We received picture-perfect wedding photos and those candid and intensely emotional moments.  Placing our wedding in the hands of L & S Elegant Weddings and Occasion Designers and LASEWOD  Photography for all of our wedding needs was the best thing we could have ever done.  While we set out to have a small elopement, Sharon and Ellery treated our wedding as if it was a million-dollar event!

Why did we choose L & S Elegant Wedding Planner and LASEWOD Photography?


Sharon and I have been friends for many years! Over the years, I have seen the beautiful work she has done, so when it was time for us to get married, there wasn’t anyone that came close to the high-quality work, people person that she is, and she was very affordable!


They were:

  • Organized

  • Creative

  • Good communicators

  • Budget-savvy

  • Very skilled at potential problems and solved them beforehand

  • Detail-oriented

  • Very fun, eased my nerves with laughter, joking, and just with the great sense of humor they shared.

  • They have superb interpersonal skills.

  • They were on time! This attribute was so essential for us.


My husband and I were super happy with everything! Sharon and Ellery are a husband and wife team that has the experience you need for ANY occasion you may be having!
