Nashville Wedding Recap – Chelsey & Stephen

On Friday, August 24, Chelsey and Stephen decided to tie the knot! It was a beautiful summer day filled with so much love and laughter with a stunning wedding ceremony and reception.

Getting Ready

The Bridal Party arrived at Chelsey’s apartment to get ready for the big day. One10 Beauty arrived to get Chelsey and her six bridesmaids ready. The girls all got their hair and makeup done and helped Chelsey get into her beautiful dress.

How gorgeous is that ring?!

Remember the old saying “something old, something new, somethings borrowed and something blue”? Did you know that saying used to have more to it, being “and a sixpence in her shoe”? Over time the tradition changed from a sixpence to a penny. The tradition with the penny has a lot of other meanings in other cultures but ultimately represents good luck and good fortune for the couple. Can’t put the penny in your shoe? Follow Chelsey’s lead and tape it to the bottom!

How cute of an idea is this tie? It’s something they’ll both cherish forever.

Meanwhile, Stephen was getting himself ready for his big debut and to lay eyes on his stunning bride.

Ceremony Details

Chelsey and Stephen had a stunning ceremony with their family and friends alongside them. Every little detail made the ceremony so special.


At 5:30, Chelsey made her way down the aisle with her father by her side. The ceremony was held at the gorgeous Belle Meade Plantation. The summer day allowed for amazing lighting and brought everything together perfectly. The look of love on Stephen’s face is one of our favorite moments from their day.

Reception Details

The reception was also held at the Belle Meade Plantation. 

The four-tiered cake was made by Nashville Sweets. The cake held a timeless design with elegant flowers and metallic detailing. We also love the custom-made silver cake topper that matches the silver on the cake!
