Nashville Wedding Recap
Rebecca and Justin
On october 22, 2016 Justin and Rebecca came together to celebrate and solidify their bond of marriage with their friends and family. The wedding took place at the beautiful First Lutheran Church and with the reception following at Loveless Barn.
The bride and her bridesmaids started the morning meeting at Rodney Mitchell Salon. They had fun getting their hair and makeup worked on all morning, while the boys got ready on their own. Rebecca wore a beautiful long sleeved V-neck, lace gown with buttons running down the back, and a veil trimmed in lace. Along with the dress she paired a dainty diamond necklace and earrings.
Notice Justin’s unique feather bowtie, love those special details!
Once they were ready after preparing all morning, away from each other, Justin was finally able to see Rebecca for the first time that day dolled up and beautiful, ready for the wedding. Justin admired his bride as they took pictures together.
The bridal party
After they had their solo photos the bridesmaids and groomsmen joined the couple for more pictures. The pictures were taken on a street that added texture and interest to the pictures without distracting from the bridal party focus of the pictures. The groomsmen all wore the same feather bowtie as Justin. Little touches like this are what make a wedding special and memorable!The bridesmaids dresses were all different styles in the same color, very on trend. The contract of the bouquet from Enchanted Forest against their slate grey dresses was beautiful.
With the ceremony held at this beautiful venue everything went perfectly!
The program included remembrance of loved ones who were not able to make it to the special day.Everyone looking on, full of joy as Rebecca and her father walked down the aisle to join her soon to be husband! After a big smooch it was time to celebrate their love at the reception!
Cheers Y’all! Bringing that southern charm to the guests with a commemorative koozie to take home.Fun centerpiece for the bride and groom’s table!An elegant chandelier with gauze covered string lights brings light and beauty to the reception area!
The seating chart had the same monogram label used throughout the wedding decor.
When everyone had arrived at the reception the bride and groom were blessed by the groom’s father, and then they dove straight into the cake cutting. (Dessert first is the best option when the cakes look this good!) The bride’s cake, created by The Flour Shop Bakery in Brentwood, was a beautiful three tiered cake with white icing, decorated with the same flowers as the bridal party’s bouquets. The groom’s cake, made by Dessert Designs, was made to look like a tree stump with an arrow shot into it. Decorating this cake were shot gun shells made of fondant, fun to look at and delicious!
Once dinner and dessert were over, and everyone was satisfied with their cake, Justin and Rebecca shared their first dance as husband and wife to”Forever and Ever Amen” by Randy Travis.
It was all smiles for Justin and Rebecca as they took to the floor and danced together. The father daughter dance was to “When You Need Me” by Bruce Springsteen. And Justin danced with his mother to “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
As the evening wound down the couple was lead through a tunnel of sparklers to an 1954 Chevy Bel-Air! What a fun way to end a wonderful evening!
Congratulations to the happy couple! We were so glad to be a part of your special day!
