We are SO excited to have Shannon McCarren and Zoe Levine from Belmont University join us for the summer months. Since they will be sharing some of the cutest, hottest, and most practical tips & trends with our brides, I wanted you to get to know them.
Welcome Zoe Levine!
1. What do you like most about Nashville?
I love the go-getter vibes that are always present around Nashville. Whether you are a musician, student, event planner, lawyer, or doctor; everyone is passionate about what they are doing.
I can’t complain about the amazing restaurants either.
2. What do you want to do when you grow up?
A Princess 🙂
Or if that doesn’t work out I would love to be a wedding planner or work in entertainment public relations.
3. Favorite hangout/restaurant/coffee shop in Nashville?
I love the Jam Coffee Shop on the corner of Wedgewood Avenue and 12 south. Their breakfast sandwich is to die for.
I also love going to Radnor Lake, the hike is amazing.
4. Favorite past time?
My favorite past time is watching movies in my pj’s.
I’m always watching Frozen, Tangled, Legally Blonde 1 and 2, 27 Dresses, Enchanted, and any Melissa McCarthy movie.
I also love shopping, but who doesn’t?
5. Favorite color?
6. What do you love about weddings?
I love love. I know that sounds weird but in my generation it is not so present. I love that two people dedicate the rest of their lives to each other because they couldn’t live without one another. It is a celebration of soul mates and who wouldn’t want to celebrate that.
My favorite part of a wedding: looking at the groom when the brides comes down the aisle.
AND Shannon McCarren!
My name is Shannon McCarren, a senior public relations major at Belmont University. Three years ago I came to this city from Philadelphia looking for the warmth of the sun and the warmth of southern hospitality; but more recently, I fell in love with the opportunities and blessings that this city has to offer a 21-year-old woman with an imagination and dreams as big as mine. More specifically, I’m passionate about people, sharing my creativity, writing, and organization—so what better way to implement those loves than to become a publicist! What type you may ask? Not too sure yet. But I will not settle for anything less than interesting so that my talents will be utilized fully.
I do enjoy weddings though! So maybe something in the wedding business is what I might end up doing. There’s something about seeing happy couples walk into the store that gives me hope for eternal happiness that you can share with someone.
My favorite color is mint green. I’m addicted to coffee, so I really enjoy going to as many coffee shops as possible to try something new; my favorite place so far would be the Edgehill Cafe. I love being outside and taking photos of all the beauty that is out there. Finally, I think that I have the best friends in the world, so I love hanging out with them; and out of those friends I found my boyfriend, so when we all hang out together I am in complete bliss.
So that’s me, and I hope to see you in the store some time! ~Shannon
Again, we are thrilled to have them on the Wedding 101 team for the summer!
