It's Friday We're in Love with... Nashville!

Last week, we began chronicling our "Top 3 Monumental Moments" over the past 3 years, as part of our celebration of Relish turning 3 this month! View our #3 Monumental Moment from last week HERE

Our #2 Monumental Moment: Giving Back to Nashville (our home, sweet home) - May, 2010

Last May, the waters rose here in Nashville and many lives' were changed. As we watched our community reaching out to each other in the most amazing way, we searched our hearts to see what we could do to help.

We created an "I Love Nashville" stationery line as a tribute to our great city. We decided to donate 100% of the proceeds to the Nashville Red Cross Flood Relief efforts. We weren't sure how much we would sell and how much we'd be able to give back, but after a year, we are pleased to say we've given 100s of dollars to the community!!!


Thanks so much to the brides who ordered just to give back to their community!! They have so many choices in invitations, but they chose this and the conversations we had with them - about how they wanted to help! One bride even included cards that said "In exchange for wedding favors, we've made further donations to the Red Cross". They all had Nashville on their hearts, even on "THEIR" days! This is the community we live in, the community we are SO proud to call home!

We were also honored to be invited to our first TV interview on the mid-day NBC show, Better Nashville. Through this, we were able to let brides know what we were doing and that helped make this a success!

See the interview HERE.

We are proud to be an online company that serves brides across the world. But we do in deed LOVE Nashville! And this opportunity to give back to our community was a truly monumental moment for us!

"Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." - Luke 6:38

Stay tuned! Relish's #1 Monumental Moment will be revealed NEXT WEEK! :)
