I’ve been waiting to share this one and it was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings last week!
Jackie and Ross are a modern couple who wanted to throw a knock-out party for their guests. We designed the fully draped tent to be an enchanting space, centered around the barn wood dance floor. We mixed ghost chairs with farm tables adorned with lush floral garlands. We carried the elegant, modern vibe over into the lucite table numbers and individual glass bulb vases that were at each place setting. Each guests was greeted with a place cards that dedicated a tree to be planted in their name, a gourmet meal and array of cakes in assorted flavors.
It had been raining all day, so we moved the garden ceremony in the Mansion. During the ceremony, Nashville went under a flash flood warning. The guests enjoyed cocktails, the sounds of a bluegrass trio and strolled through the Andy Warhol exhibit on display in the museum, all while the tent filled with water!
The grass floor of the tent soon turned to mud, but everyone embraced it by rolling up their pants and kicking off their heels. I loved seeing Jackie, Ross, their friends and family embrace the spirit of their wedding.
On their way out, they all hopped on buses to the after party downtown and were treated with the couple’s favorite hometown snacks, brownies and popcorn, for the ride!
