Whether you've already chosen Nashville as your wedding spot, or you're still trying to decide on the location, keep reading for some of our best tips and helpful how-to advice when it comes to planning a Nashville Destination Wedding.
Hannah and Zach's romantic all-inclusive Franklin wedding took place on a gorgeous May day at Cedarmont Farm. Classic and elegant but also lots of fun, this couple wanted to make sure their wedding was just as fun as it was beautiful. Our team loved planning both the beautiful decor and florals with them but also all the little details that would ensure guests would have a memorable evening from photo booths to late night snacks and champagne walls. However, a few months before the wedding Zach was suddenly deployed, as a soon-to-be military wife, Hannah handled the situation with grace but it was uncertain if he would make it home for the wedding. As luck would have it, Zach was able to come home a few weeks before the wedding just in time to marry the girl of his dreams. We are all so thankful for your service Zach and loved getting to play a part in such an important day for both of you.
Meet the Couple
Hannah and Zach met junior year of college through mutual friends. They love lazy days where they would binge watch shows. They also enjoy weekend getaways and try to make the most fun out of the time they have together. Hannah and Zach also like to go to the gym and go on runs together.
"Zach and I went to Charlotte to visit his parents (he lived outside of Raleigh so it was a short drive to visit). We left our hotel to walk to dinner and Zach was being really quiet and rushed me out to the balcony outside of the restaurant which had a beautiful view of the city. I knew something was up but I never expected to turn around and see both his and my parents (mine had driven to Charlotte from Nashville that day without me knowing), and then I knew what was happening so I turned around and he was on one knee. I've never seen Zach that nervous and happy and it was just such a special moment"
Hannah and Zach's ceremony took place at our beautiful historic house with the lush gardens providing a romantic intimate setting. Hannah walked down an aisle lined with ivory rose petals and the couple were married in front of a cross delicately draped with white chiffon with our lush green tree cascading around them. After the ceremony, guests hopped aboard our red trolley and were transported to cocktail hour where they were greeted with a champagne wall for a welcome drink. The side patio and cocktail lawn at Cedarmont Farm was a whole vibe from the giant jenga to corn hole and a VW van photo booth where guests could paste their snapshots into Hannah & Zach's guestbook! Marquee letters spelling out the couples' last name were placed in front of our event barn which made for a great photo op! When guests entered the reception, they were immediately transported to a romantic intimate celebration with the string lights and the hanging greenery and white wisteria cascading over the beams down the center of the barn. Pillar and votive candles added to the centerpieces on the tables mixed with white blooms, greenery and pops of gold accents. Their delicious almond wedding cake featured a horizontal stucco design with delicately placed greenery and white florals for a sweet romantic touch! At the end of the night, Hannah and Zach had a private last dance while guests lined up for sparkler exit which featured cool sparkle fountains to really provide that "Grand" exit!
Special Detail from the Day
"One special detail from our day was definitely when people were getting ready for the sparkler send off, I had a private last dance with my husband to “We Danced” by Brad Paisley. I’ve wanted to dance to that at my wedding since I was a little girl!"
From Florida, to Tennessee, with a few stops in-between, distance could never stop the love between these two. Kéra and Karl met at work in Tampa Florida and quickly became friends. Shortly after becoming friends, Kéra left that job and the two lost touch. Four years later they reconnected over their Faith and after talking a bit they finally had their first date over coffee.
Izzy and Austin's Nashville barn wedding at Cedarmont Farm was full of personal details and uniqueness. From the beginning of our planning with them it was clear that Izzy was very creative. She showed up to our decor meeting with a beautifully illustrated journal of wedding notes and flowers she loved.
The ceremony was short and sweet set against the backdrop of Larson Floral Co's greenery circle arch in the tiered ceremony area at Cedarmont. As individuals, and as a couple, they hate being the center of attention, so they told their close friend who was officiating "just do something simple and generic". He surprised them with a short but incredibly personal, touching, and beautifully written ceremony that had everyone fighting back tears.
After the intimate ceremony, guests headed to cocktail hour then on to the reception in the event barn. The decor was boho and earthy with lots of greenery and botanicals. Izzy handmade the seating chart cards, with flowers she picked in her neighborhood, as well as the invitations and the boxes for the favors (little seed sprouting faces)! One of our favorite design aspects of the wedding was the mismatched bridesmaids dresses Izzy chose in a variety of colors and textures. The whole day was both beautifully elegant and authentic, much like Izzy and Austin.
Brittany and Jeremy had planned a beautiful June wedding for 2020. They became one of the many couples that had to postpone their big day due to the global pandemic. The decision was heartbreaking and stressful but it was a beautiful moment for them as a couple as it was an occasion in which their partnership thrived. During planning meetings and countless phone calls navigating the changes to their wedding, it was apparent that Brittany energized Jeremy and he calmed her. Together they were better than they would be alone and it was inspiring to see how strong of a couple they were even when tested. They decided to push their elegant wedding a few months to September and it turned out beautiful. Their guests danced the night away and they turned lemons into lemonade with some cute pocket size hand sanitizer party favors.
We loved helping Alex & Steve plan their dream wedding. They both are hard workers and have very busy careers but they also love to have fun and wanted to throw a great party for their wedding! They also both take pride in where they come from and wanted to reflect that in their wedding day. Alex is from Mexico and Steve has Scottish roots so it was important to them to reflect both cultures in their wedding and blend it with some Southern flavor as a nod to Franklin, TN where they are creating their life together. We had so much fun helping them blend all these cultures into a beautiful day with personal touches that reflected their personalities.
Kim & Scott's wedding at Cedarmont perfectly reflected the laid-back and friendly vibe of this lovely couple. Everything about their wedding exuded Southern Charm and the casual friendliness that goes along with it.
