Yesterday, we met half of the wonderful team of Nashville Event Collective – a collaborative group of Nashville wedding professionals! Today we'll finish out the round and meet the people behind Whiskey Teacup and Anchor Films. Speaking of Anchor Films, Davis put together a wonderful video of our time at Nashville Event Collective – take a look:
We clinked our glasses and at some yummy treats as we gathered around to chat about our businesses! And now I'd like to introduce you to Anchor Films + Whiskey Teacup!
Meet Anchor Films
Davis: I grew up making home videos since the age of 10 and falling in love with film making. I was working my first job at a local bakery when a friend of a friend knew my passion for film and let me know that a company he freelances for had a full time opening. I went in for a interview the next day and got the job having no knowledge of how to film a wedding and how to use any of the camera equipment or edited programs at the time. The owner and I became very close and I learned a lot in the craft while also experiencing how to run a business. I worked and trained there for around 5 years. In 2013, I started Anchor Films with a previous employee for the company who lived in Charleston, SC. We started with the idea to offer a more intimate personal wedding film to our clients and have grown a lot over the past few years.
Davis: Nashville Event Collective was exactly what we were looking to be a part of and was introduced to use without even searching it out – getting to know everyone who was involved and seeing what each had to offer as a team. After getting to sit down and have a face to face meeting and then to be offered a spot as part of the team, we couldn't pass it up.
Meet Whiskey Teacup
Kristina: Whiskey Teacup custom make everything from event signage and cake toppers, to table toppers, and place cards, to gifts and unique keepsakes. Whiskey Teacup is a family owned company, and have more than 25 years experience in the sign, construction, interior design, floral and event industry. We saw a gap both here and nationally in terms of custom designed and made products tailored for the wedding industry. 90% percent of our competiotrs are cookie cutter, mass produced products made offshore and we wanted to give planners and brides a choice of better custom made products taht are made here.
Kristina: Joining NEC was a great opportunity to be with other like minded professionals who are passionate about their offerings. It was also an opportunity for us to showcase our products to planners and brides alike in a relaxed professional atmosphere.
