This summer was JAM packed with amazing weddings and we’re so excited to recap the June wedding of Mary Allyn and Jonathan! We had just about a year to plan with these two lovebirds and we enjoyed every second of our time together! Their wedding was the perfect combination of classy elegance and all night dance party. If you want to find out how we pulled that off . . . keep reading!
The bride’s family was kind enough to let us invade their house as bridal central for the big day, and invade we did! Mary Allyn’s dress was a fitted through the waist with a flared skirt and an illusion neckline up top.
She spent the morning surrounded by her best girls (in matching PJ’s, of course) getting ready with the talented team at Blush and Honey!
A few bubbles between hair and makeup to keep the party going.
How stunning do all of these ladies look?! Mary Allyn opted for an all white bouquet packed with peonies while the girls enjoyed a pop of pink in their florals.
Mom was on hand for all the final touches . . . and a few tears!
Lashes on, earrings in, and it was almost showtime!
Jonathan opted for a classic, black tux and bowtie. He was excited to see his bride!
First Look & Couple Photos
Before Mary Allyn was off to see her groom, she had to have one last first look with the first man in her life: her dad. We love these moments between daddies and daughters and you can sometimes even catch us reaching for the tissues. But you didn’t hear that from us!
Finally, it was time for Jonathan to see his bride! They did their first look at the historic Union Station Hotel in downtown Nashville. It set the tone for a glamorous day ahead! We love a couple that can laugh together and these two were no exception!
They exchanged letters (and a few hugs and kisses) before taking some pictures.
These shots at Union Station are absolutely stunning!
Mary Allyn completed her look with a long veil . . . perfect for those windblown photos!
Wedding Party Photos
This group was non-stop fun from beginning to end! The ladies donned matching floor length pale blue dresses while the guys looked dapper in black tuxes.
Wow, what a group! These two were lucky enough to be surrounded by an amazing (and HUGE) group of friends and family on their big day.
A personalized crest made for the bride and groom was seen throughout the wedding day decor. We just adore personal touches like these!
The ceremony took place at the Cathedral of Incarnation and the space speaks for itself!
A bagpiper led the way down the aisle before Mary Allyn, with the help of her dad, made her way toward Jonathan. I spy a wedding planner creeping through the window to make sure all is well.
Jonathan, and his groomsmen, waited excitedly for the show to begin! How sweet is Jonathan’s face as he watches her come toward him?
Finally, the deal is sealed with a kiss and it’s off to the party!
The guests at Mary Allyn and Jonathan’s wedding had a choice of indoor or outdoor dining with a tent out back or tables inside throughout the venue. The flowers were beautiful shades of pink and champagne with touches of gold metal. Candles set a romantic vibe and if you ask us, you can never have too many!
This incredible 5-tier cake was just as good as it looked! Take our word for it! The cascade of flowers was just the thing to pull it all together.
A grand entrance by the Prices kicked off the reception festivities. For those of you with a good eye, the groom changed from his black jacket into his dance jacket!
They started the night with their first dance as husband and wife.
Followed by those extra-special moments with the parents.
But what REALLY started the party was a choreographed surprise dance by the bride’s family! The family that dances together . . . has a darn good time!
Clearly, everyone in this group got the memo and came ready to get down!
The night was capped off with a cheer and a dip!
These two sure know how to ride off in style!
Congratulations to Mary Allyn and Jonathan! We were honored to have the opportunity to work with you and wish you nothing but the very best in your many years of marriage.
