inspired:: early fall

We may not be completely over summer just yet (I'm holding fast to my white jeans and beachy decor), but that doesn't mean we're not looking forward to fall, either! Fall evokes a sense of warmth, coziness, and beauty in nature. It can be conjured by a pumpkin latte or pumpkin-scented candle or the crackle of leaves underfoot. 

From Chelsey:  "The inspiration for this board is the time of early fall with its cooler nights and warmer colors. For this board however, I didn't jump straight into the typical colors of the season. I kept hints of oranges and reds, but incorporated a lot of darker green too. The barn scene has a lot of floral aspects that complement perfectly with the lights and draping from above. I also love the dress for the bride with the little cap sleeves and headband." 

Here's a subtle homage to the early fall we so adore.

We're excited to introduce you to our newest Kelly Dellinger Events intern, Chelsey! Chelsey will be joining us for the 2014 fall wedding season and we couldn't be happier to have her onboard. Get to know her a little bit better below:


My name is Chelsey Gatlin. I am officially a senior at Austin Peay State University. I’m originally from a small town called Clifton, Tennessee, but I like to call Nashville my home now. I am a lover of books, Saturday Night Live, side splitting laughter, and Elton John on vinyl. I aspire to be a dreamer of dreams and a creator of beautiful things.

For a really long time I was pretty clueless on what I truly wanted to do with my life and what direction I should take. Then suddenly it clicked. I loved planning parties. I even hijacked my friend’s birthdays in high school. But more than that, I loved weddings. I admire what they represent because they are so much more than just a party. A wedding is simply about the celebration of two people who have found one of the greatest gifts this world could offer – love and happiness. I knew from then on that I had to work within the wedding industry.

I have mostly worked on the planning side of weddings, but I also dabbled in working with bridal gowns as well. Not to mention, my extensive research (aka my free time activities) in watching and re-watching Paperback Wedding films and many others. I am so terribly excited to be able to continue on with this journey and learning at Kelly Dellinger Events!
