On December 3rd, 2016 at Long Hollow Gardens in Gallatin, Tennessee, Kari and Clay said “I do”. The day was a beautiful celebration of their love and commitment to one another with a stunning wedding ceremony and reception to match.
The Bridal Party arrived at Long Hollow Gardens to settle into the farm house, a sweet cottage on the property for the bride and her girls to have a place to hang out and get ready for the day just a short walk from where the ceremony would take place.
The Bride’s hair and make-up was done by Olivia Hosselton, who came to the Farm house in the morning to help her get ready in time for the first look. And just how magical is that gold bohemian headband?
The groom and his groomsmen arrived at 11 am to begin their grooming (pun intended) for the day. Their matching socks were a fun addition to their look so they were just as fancy as the girls!
Once all socks were on and every hair was in place, it was time for the groom to see his Bride! Such a sweet moment!
After the first look, Kari and Clay wandered around the property to take more photos as a couple. Andrew Allen Morton did a fabulous job of capturing this couple at their best.
The Bridal Party
Clay had both men and women in his party, something fun and non-traditional that meant a lot to him.
The Bridesmaids wore deep blue skirts with mis-matched tops, always a fun way to show the different personalities and styles!
At 4pm the Miss became a Mrs. under a beautiful alter in front of their friends and family.
The father of the bride got emotional as he walked the bride to her soon to be husband.
Once they were official, it was time to party!
The Wedding Reception
After a cocktail hour, the guests joined each other to continue to chat over dinner from the Steaming Goat Food Truck. But, not before the newlyweds had their First Dance to “Something” by the Beatles. The guests then enjoyed dinner and the Maid of Honor and Best Man made their speeches.
Long Hollow Gardens stunning greenhouse is the perfect open area for both dining and dancing the night away.
All flower arrangements, from the brides earthy bouquet to the sweet centerpieces of white and amber roses surrounded by gorgeous greenery were created by her best friend and maid of honor, Natalie Hosselton.
The bride made the napkins to match the rest of the look of the decor. Glasses were made from old recycled wine bottles.
The delicious two-tiered cake was provided by B. Jacksons Bakery. Topped with white roses it was almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
After an amazing day filled with love and laughter, the bride and groom danced off to begin their happily ever after.
Congratulations to this sweet couple, thank you for including is in your wedding day!
