Featured on Wedding Chicks
After our initial meeting at the client’s home, I could already envision all the major details. Their home is so unique; filled with tons of antiques mixed with contemporary items, personal touches, quirky details and so many items the couple had made themselves! They love to repurpose antiques into shelves, frames, tables, flowerpots, and so much of the decor is handmade; many times gifts from the groom to his beloved bride.
The singer-songwriter and his bride married under an old oak tree on the Nashville farm with hundreds of countryside acres on either side. Gold lanterns adorned with perfectly picked peonies, roses and eucalyptus hung from the massive tree that served as the alter.
Our favorite details included the bright colors in the flowers - corals, bright pinks, peaches and lots of textured greenery. The dinner plates were mix and match vintage floral designs in pinks, purples, & gold. For the head table we used light blue vintage mismatched water goblets and light blue and gold vintage china plates. Down the head table was the most luscious mix of greens in a garland that puddled onto the floor on both ends with dozens of big baroness and Juliet garden roses, coral charm peonies, and light pink astilbe tucked in between vintage gold pillar candlesticks. Each member of the bridal party’s gold calligraphied placecards were held up by a tiny white bunny with gold-dipped paws. Traditional gold flatware that looked like it had been handed down from generations ago contrasted perfectly with the barnwood farm tables.
Besides the gorgeous open-aired barn with breathtaking views, the focal point of this reception was surely the four-tiered gold wedding cake covered with flowers and greenery sitting on top of a freshly cut tree stump covered in moss. And it tasted as good as it looked!
