To say we’re juggling a lot is a complete understatement. Between the two of us, there are two large male children, three tiny tots, six four-legged fur balls and three small businesses. It’s a blessing that we are able to read each other’s mind because sometimes we stop conversing mid-sentence and struggle to formulate the rest of our thought. 

Given our schedules and priorities and desire to conquer the world, it’s impossible for us to meet with every vendor or local business.  And sometimes brides can’t tour a venue during normal business hours because they are rightfully focused on their careers and would prefer to not get fired over planning a wedding. So we came up with a solution. 

Each Wednesday the Mims House will be open for an informal Open House from 4pm - 7pm.  Anyone and everyone is welcome. We’ve already thoroughly enjoyed meeting those who have stopped by to admire the grandeur of the property and especially those who have offered their personal stories of history with the house.

So mark your calendar and stop by to see us and say hello.  We can’t promise that each week will feature live music or fresh florals from a local vendor, but we can promise you’ll find a cute display with refreshments and you’ll have an all-access pass to explore the 30+ rooms. 

We hope to see you at one of our Open House Wednesdays soon!  We would like to send a special thanks to Steve Stowe from Bunn DJ Company, Flowers on Broad Street and Brides & Bouquets for their participation recently. You guys rock!

Mims Grand Opening Party Marketing Video

Remember how we said we would be posting about the Grand Opening Party very soon? Please forgive us for being total slackers and taking this incredibly long to get around to it. It’s been pleasantly busy but that craziness has prevented us from checking off tasks on the to-do list. 

Have you ever wished you could relive a day again? Like Groundhog Day-style. Go to bed, wake up and completely duplicate every single second of a day you’ve already experienced. That day for us is the day of our party. Usually every Friday we reference Friday, March 13 and long to be able to travel back in time to that night. It was pure magic.

The only thing that comes close to reliving the day of the party is getting to watch a video highlighting every detail. We had really high expectations for this film. We hoped it would capture the emotions we were feeling and the elation that flowed through every room of the Mims House. It was going to be our treasure. Our little time capsule to show to our children’s children.  And then we watched the video and every expectation we thought we had shattered like a bursting firework and tears of pure joy streamed down our smiling cheeks.   

Our hearts are so full of gratitude to Silver Feather Studios for this keepsake. There is absolutely nothing, not one detail, we would change. It is sheer perfection. Not only is this video the perfect piece of memorabilia from one of the most pivotal moments of our lives but it also serves as our medication for when we’re having pains from not being able to re-live that day. 

The Grand Opening Party would not have been possible without each and every vendor that graciously donated their time and talent to support us. We are indebted to them for their selflessness. 

If you weren’t able to make it to the party, we feel really sorry for you because it was definitely a party and you missed a heck of a good time.  If you were able to make it and you secretly find yourself wishing you could experience it again, take four minutes out of your day, watch this video and re-live it with us.

We encourage you to visit Silver Feather Studios' blog and check out their recap of the night as well as to see some additional photos from the event!
