Diane + Helene are some of our favorite people here at C+L HQ! Not only are they a fun hang, they've been huge supporters of C+L since Day 1, in a variety of ways. Including: lending us their beautiful faces & dapper style for our C+L launch shoot and Re-Emergence shoot.
Diane wears the Broadway bow.
So it was totally believable when we reached out to them about a new "C+L Couples" feature we were doing - would they be interested in a photo shoot + interview? Of course they would! They met us at Printer's Alley in downtown Nashville on a sunny afternoon in May...but there was one catch: the whole thing was orchestrated by Diane as a ruse to propose to Helene!
We had to share this story because first of all, how fun, but also - this was one of those moments where we truly had to just bask in this incredible community. The fact that our little business could play a small part in the start of forever for these two amazing humans is such an honor. That is the magic that we stand for.
Everyone needs to meet these two - so keep reading to get acquainted!
