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!"
