October 13th, 2018 couldn’t have been a more perfect day for a wedding! On this date bride and groom, Sharayah and Ronnie pronounced their vows to each other and made the amazing commitment of marriage. This wedding was true magic and we hope that you agree!
Sharayah and her lovely bridal party could not wait to prepare for the exciting day ahead of them. These lovely ladies started their day off in gorgeous silk robes to ensure a glamorous experience while getting ready at Studio Gaven.
Sharayah, with the help of her mother, slipped into her elegant lace gown followed by a few following touches such as a veil and kiss on the cheek from sweet mother.
Following Sharayah, the bridal party then zipped up their emerald green gowns which just so happened to perfectly complement Sharayah’s eccentric purple hair and gorgeous bouquet. The bouquet was a collection of unique greenery and dainty purple flowers which perfectly went with Sharayah’s look for the day!
The girls looked gorgeous and were ready for the day of festivities that was ahead of them!
When it came to the first look their was not just one but two! Sharayah’s father got a sneak peek at his beautiful daughter right before the ceremony. As you can see they are both moved to tears on this lovely wedding day.
Next up was Sharayah’s husband to be, Ronnie. As the two anxiously wait for the grand reveal you can see two giddy smiles on their faces. Once Ronnie turns around he is immediately turned to tears.
The couple shares a sweet embrace and then snap some gorgeous photos with each other and the wedding party!
Wedding Ceremony Details
The ceremony was held at the charming Scarritt Bennett Center, located in the heart of Nashville. Once entering the venue an entry sign and white pumpkin card box greeted you alongside their unique guestbook. This guestbook was no ordinary guestbook though in that it was a wonderful framed piece of art unique to Sharayah and Ronnie’s relationship.
Once entering the chapel one could see a simple yet elegant set up which was a perfect choice for this chapel venue. With whimsical greenery and floral arrangements, the complementary colors of the wedding party became the focal point of the ceremony creating a true spotlight for the bride and groom to say “I do.”
Wedding Reception Details & Highlights
This rich purple and emerald green color scheme flowed over to the reception which was held at the Embassy Suites. The venue was decorated in ivory with brass, purple and green accents. Centerpieces included a collection of simple greenery, gorgeous brass candlesticks, and white pumpkins.
The bridal party was greeted at the venue with the punchy beat of Panic at the Dico’s “Victorious” and was then followed by the bride and grooms first dance. The couple chose the classic indie hit “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol to embrace the tender and lighthearted moment.
Father and daughter then shared their dance to the nostalgic song “Cinderella” by Steven Curtis Chapman followed by the mother and son dance which was to the sweet song “Danny’s Song” by Loggins. These heartfelt moments were shared and celebrated with family and friends.
Toasts were made and cake was eaten! This single tier cake was made by Gigi’s Cakes and completely fit the vibe of this whimsical wedding with gold accents and a gorgeous rich toned arrangement on top. Sharayah and Ronnie playfully fed each other this cake showing the fun-loving personality of this couple.
The night closed out with the song “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain and the couple was sent out through a tunnel made by their friends and family! This wedding day was so special and we are so thankful that Ronnie and Sharayah let us be a part of it all.
