BRIGHTest Moments of 2015, Part 1!
A belated happy New Year, y’all! We thought we’d start off 2016 by celebrating all the hard work we did in 2015. Instead we started the year off as busy as ever so our recap is a tad late. That said, 2015 was another amazing year for the BRIGHT Team. We’re eager to share, so without further ado, here are the first five of our 10 BRIGHTest Moments of 2015.
#10 Nashville Fashion Week.
The 2015 Nashville Fashion Week was another EPIC series of events including runway shows, a gala and accessories showcase. The city-wide celebration took place over 5 days in April in several of Nashville’s most stylish venues, including Acme Feed & Seed, The Cordelle, The Bicentennial Mall Ampitheatre and The Rosewall. After 3 years, we are proud as ever to partner with this great organization. Photo Credit: Snappy Lifestyle Photo (1,3) and Verve Studios (2)
#9 Artisan Markets.
Nashville is a city know for its music, for it’s fashion and more recently for its artisan markets. Porter Flea paved the way in Nashville for local makers and artists to sell their unique goods and hosted their largest markets to date in 2015. Made South hosted their Southern inspired holiday market after a successful debut market in the fall. BRIGHT was a proud partner for both Porter Flea and Made South and all the amazing artists they support!
#8 CMA Week.
The week around the Country Music Awards is a big deal in Nashville. The city rolls out the red carpet for Country’s top musicians, tourist flock to the city, local businesses and corporations plan annual parties, and music companies celebrate the stars on their labels. Oh, and there’s a pretty important, nationally-televised award show. Needless to say, we were stroked to be in the mix of so many fantastic celebrations as we partnered with our favorite event professionals for 10 straight days of non-stop work. Pushed to pull off a crazed production scheduled, all while transforming event spaces all over Nashville is what we love most – sign us up for CMA week 2016 because we can’t wait!
#7 ATL Market Adventure.
During the summer of 2015, Abi, Clint, Clayton & Tate headed to AmericasMart in Atlanta for a whirlwind getaway to find new inventory, inspiration and some BRIGHT bonding. The trip got our innovative wheels turning with all kinds of creative ideas (who wants to plan an event around a gold rhino?!). We were also on the hunt for a few specific clients requests and came home with great finds including the Melrose, Hollywood, Belle and Brentwood fixtures.
#6 Star-studded Events.
It’s official. Nashville is the 3rd coast and stars are not just buying property and headlining concerts in Music City, they are hosting fabulous parties. From celebrity weddings and birthday celebrations to star-studded awards parties and receptions, we never know who we are going to brush elbows with on a job site. It has been a privilege and inspiration to work our vendor partners in the past year on events for so many creative stars – all in a BRIGHT day’s work!
We’ll share our top five of 2015 later this week – stay tuned!
