Intimate Nashville Wedding with a Blush Kimono Gown

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

Teale Photography

Not only is this bride’s blush pink kimono wedding gown a show-stopper in itself, it was an affordable find from ASOS! Mary Katherine and Matt had a day that was as nontraditional and eclectic as they are, with bridesmaids in all white and a guitar shaped wedding cake. The unbeatable combination of Teale Photography and Cedarwood Weddings did fantastic work on this one!

Eclectic Nashville Wedding with a Blush Kimono Gown - http://ruffledblog.com/eclectic-nashville-wedding-with-a-blush-kimono-gown

From the event planners and designers, Cedarwood Weddings: Mary Katherine and Matt raised the eclectic bar at their artisanal countryside Cedarwood wedding celebrating love, music and indie style. Mary Katherine and Matt wanted a colorful, unexpected and non-traditional take on wedding design. For starters: Mary Katherine wore an exquisite silk Kimono gown in the softest shade of blush, which she ordered online from ASOS! In a reverse from the norm, her bridesmaids wore white dresses, each one uniquely hand-picked for a mismatched but cohesive look. Guys wore their own versions of navy (jeans welcomed!) And the flowers… starting with blooms in the bride’s hair – the loveliest peonies and ranunculus – which also grace gorgeous, flowing-ribbon bouquets. And fresh, green garlands everywhere.

Mary Katherine and Matt met at a music festival and their eclectic style was studded with colorful, vintage glass, soft-colored blooms and of course, music. Because Matt works in the entertainment industry in tour production, he is well connected with artists, and gathered a group of musician friends to play reggae at their reception! We love Matt’s guitar-shaped groom’s cake, replicating his tattoo design (a surprise from his bride) and a tribute to the music that brought them together. Their lovely May Cedarwood Wedding celebration was impeccably photographed by Teale Photography, and we are smitten these images, and this day.

Alchemy Inspired Wedding Editorial

Wedding Design

Here’s an absolutely inspiring wedding styled shoot with a botanical, ethereal feel. With its clean and modern palette of creamy whites and various shades of soft green, Julie Paisley Photography captured the natural styling of Cedarwood Weddings‘ alchemy-themed wedding shoot. Adding geodes and quartz to wedding tablescapes and other decor elements are a hot wedding trend right now, and we love how the white quartz is perched as a cake topper. Our eyes are loving those tulips, but we’re so smitten over the foliage and the greenery, especially as they snake out in the terrariums. Such a fun concept!

white and green wedding colors - http://ruffledblog.com/alchemy-inspired-wedding-editorial

From the event designer, Cedarwood Weddings: Our Alchemy wedding inspiration uses natural elements like quartz crystals, minerals, and light to elevate event design to an ethereal expression of love. Styling is subtle, a delicate balance of earth and fire. Hues of pale green and mint floral and décor – including hand blown glass terrariums encasing mysteriously exotic air plants – are elegantly natural. Candlelight warms and reflects the neutral reception setting, as sunlight illuminates our gorgeous bride’s golden hour photo session with Julie Paisley.

Vellum invitations and paper goods continue the touch of lightness in design. Elements are carefully curated to represent the connection between heaven and earth, including rock candy decorated cocktails and cake, and an altar of branches grounding a suspended installation of candles and air plants. Guests participate in the mystery with unopened crystal geode favors. Carol Hannah’s AZURITE gown, which “celebrates feminine strength and mystery”, is stunning both in the color and luxurious use of fine flowing fabrics that gracefully drape our bride as she frolics in the estate meadow. Carol Hannah’s Dew Headpiece is a fine embellishment of glass beading and brass wire that is flexible enough to use in any hairstyle.

Tennessee Garden Wedding With a Green Bridal Skirt

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Dixie Pixel

I have to say that there’s really nothing quite like fashion-forward, sartorially-chic brides that push the envelope, and Jenna fits that bill quite well. When Dixie Pixel‘s grand images of her in her green bridal skirt popped up, I knew we had something quite special here! Coordination was one of Evan and Jenna’s must-haves for their big day, so enlisting Southern Bliss Weddings to orchestrate all of the fine details was necessary and speaking of fine details, Megan Connors Floral and Styling worked wonders all over this event, from the bride’s bouquet to that astounding barn ceiling. Wait until you see THAT doozy.

unique wedding dresses - http://ruffledblog.com/tennessee-garden-wedding-with-a-green-bridal-skirt

From the bride, Jenna: Evan and I both love the rustic barn feel and the space that acreage provides. We knew from the beginning that we wanted an outdoor wedding with as many rustic elements as possible. We also agreed that we wanted items to have a special meaning, hence the doors from Indiana (his home state) and the lavender from my dad’s farm in Oregon. We asked a close friend to officiate the ceremony which could not have turned out any better. Our goal for the wedding was to create an intimate event for close friends and family that felt like an upscale backyard party.

Evan and I really wanted to stay with the rustic-chic look throughout the wedding but we were also careful to add some glamour to the barn atmosphere. Our color scheme included cream, hunter green and gold. Because the wedding was outdoors we wanted to really reflect the colors of the property while throwing in small pops of color for added brightness.

Oh the DIY projects… where do I begin? We had more than a year to plan our special day so a majority of the projects for our event became DIY. I designed and printed all paper elements (invitation packets, menus, thank you notes, etc.). Evan is a fantastic woodworker and I wanted his craftsmanship to be highlighted throughout our wedding. When he first took me to his parents’ home in Indiana, we found an old barn on his Uncle’s land with which I immediately fell in love. The barn was falling down and no longer of use to his Uncle’s farm so we asked permission to strip the wood for use on a later, and at the time unknown, project. The reception bar was built from barn wood we stripped in Indiana. Evan also built the ceremony backdrop and large double-door entrance using doors we found in an old antique shop in Indiana.

All of the wedding signage was built/stained/created and written by me. The lavender used to fill our “toss bags”, placed at the table settings and randomly stuck throughout the wedding decor was lovingly trucked back to Tennessee last September when we made a cross-country road trip to my dad’s home and lavender farm in Oregon. The cornhole boards were purchased unfinished and I completed them by staining and adding a gold H monogram. Evan created the ball jar lights from old canning jars we found while antiquing in Knoxville and Indiana. Lastly, many of the antique elements scattered throughout the wedding were purchased by Evan and myself while antiquing in Knoxville and Indiana (glass jugs, antique boxes, rustic letters, etc).

Our florist Megan, of Megan Connors Floral Design and Styling, really hit this event out of the park. She took the ideas I didn’t even know lived in my head and made them come to life. My bouquet was, in my opinion, one of the most fabulous arrangements I have ever seen and did you SEE what she did to the barn ceiling? Her style and creativity lead to the perfect amount of floral arrangements without overpowering the natural beauty of the venue.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Take your time and enjoy the process… and the correct vendors are EVERYTHING. Having vendors (photographer, caterer, florist) that I could count on really made the planning process a breeze. Because I trusted and valued their opinions I gave them some general guidelines but they pretty much were able to have creative license with everything. Another must for couples planning their wedding: A COORDINATOR. Amanda Graves with Southern Bliss Weddings was my lifesaver many times during the year we planned. Lastly, I would remind couples that this is THEIR day. Try not to get caught up in the “they invited us so we have to invite them” mess that sometimes comes with weddings. The whole point is to celebrate your love and the entire day should be exactly how you both imagined.

Cupid’s Arrow Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Jenna Henderson

Here’s a shoot featuring a lovely marriage between modern and industrial that we just can’t get enough of today. These colors have us all googly-eyed and feeling hopelessly romantic, while Jenna Henderson‘s chronicling of the day via photographs have us falling hard for this chic juxtaposition. Kennedy Occasions‘s lush floral arrangements do this shoot so much justice and they were the perfect, bright pop of pinks to accompany such a fun styled shoot.

valentine's day inspiration - photo by Jenna Henderson http://ruffledblog.com/cupids-arrow-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer and shoot designer, Jenna Henderson: We drew our inspiration from Cupid’s arrow, finding fun ways to sneak the arrow into our decor including an arrow through the bouquet, cake, and on the paper goods. We also loved the romance of the lush florals and rich colors, and to contrast the softness, we selected an urban industrial location and a chic Edison bulb lighting installment. The result is a romantic, intimate wedding full of industrial chic touches.

With such a fun lighting installment overhead, we totally welcome contrasting styles like this. Finding an industrial space for your wedding venue doesn’t mean that you have to go the modern route when it comes to style and design. Stick to your guns if you want to dress a contemporary space in sumptuous linens, dreamy centerpieces, and romantic elements. The huge plus about venues like this are that they tend to carry a very neutral color palette, so design it to your heart’s content.

Quite often, we get wedding inspiration featuring a wide array of creative ideas and color palettes that are so refreshing. This Knoxville fête is such a treat because it’s got a gorgeous couple dressed to the nines, lovely colors invoking lush and sandy landscapes with hints of oasis-style blues and greens, and out-of-this-world floral arrangements that are the cherry on top of this dreamy inspiration.

Moody Black and White Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Let’s just say we’ve never seen a black and white wedding setting we didn’t like. This one, captured by Abigail Bobo Photography and styled by Sage Nines Event Production is no exception. They took a moody approach with this classic color duo and the results are absolutely scrumptious.

modern wedding dresses - photo by Abigail Bobo Photography http://ruffledblog.com/moody-black-and-white-wedding-ideas

From the event and floral designer, Sage Nines Event Production: The inspiration behind this shoot came from a favorite black and ivory tapestry that I found. I love that black is making such a comeback in weddings, but wanted to feature it in an edgy and less formal setting than I have typically seen it. Our bride and groom models, Brittainy and Brandon, are married in real life but had eloped to Mexico, so it was a perfect opportunity for them to get dressed up again and enjoy having Abigail Bobo capture some more sweet images of them! Brittainy wore a stunning two piece dress by Bo and Luca from The Dress Theory, which was a perfect blend of elegance and edge. We dressed the maids in all black, which gave me the liberty to go in any direction with the florals. I literally had no preconceived notions about a color palette and just went with what looked amazing at the wholesaler that week, which turned out to be white anemones with black centers, orange ranunculus, and coral charm peonies.

Scarborough Fair Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

We just love the inspiration behind today’s shoot oh-so-much. Inspired by the herbs listed in Simon & Garfunkel’s “Scarborough Fair,” the talented team of White Rabbit Studios, Kathleen Bernal Events, and Old Frond set to work on a styled shoot incorporating these fragrant green bits. The result? Total romantic bliss.

Scarborough Fair wedding inspiration - photo by White Rabbit Studios http://ruffledblog.com/scarborough-fair-wedding-inspiration

From the event designer, Kathleen Bernal Events: This wedding inspired styled shoot, entitled “fair and light,” was designed and planned by Kathleen Bernal Events and photographed perfectly by Ashley Vaughn, with White Rabbit Studios. The inspirations for this shoot were the herbs, parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, as listed in the Simon and Garfunkel song, “Scarborough Fair.” Taking us back to the Medieval times, these particular herbs were often used in wedding bouquets, as symbols of love and prosperity, and ways to ward off bitter and sad feelings. Not only are their scents heavenly, but they are also long-lasting. Mixing these age-old traditions with modern foliage created a stunning set of florals for the bouquet and table decorations. Styled in a magical woodsy area, with traces of a snowy day still remaining, we could not have asked for a more romantic setting.

Valentine’s Day Romance Inspiration

Amilia Photography

Before we head off for the weekend, we want to share one more beautiful Valentine’s Day inspired shoot with you all. This gem is from Amilia Photography and Cedarwood Weddings and provides no shortage of stunning ideas for you to fall in love with. Just take one glance at these images and you’ll know that red has never looked so good before!

Valentines Day romance inspiration - photo by Amilia Photography http://ruffledblog.com/valentines-day-romance-inspiration

From the event and floral designers, Cedarwood Weddings: When the Cedarwood Weddings design team dreams of fabled romance, we dream in velvety reds and soft pinks: the epitome of feminine allure. We combined a lush floral design in shades of red with heirloom pieces, gilded frames hanging whimsically from tree limbs, antique brass candlesticks, and a vintage dusty-rose armchair set in our rolling meadow on an oriental rug. A combination of the natural beauty of Historic Cedarwood’s 50-acre estate and design elements reminiscent of glamorous soirees complement the timeless theme of romantic love.

Standing as an altar, an antique glass paneled door frames the hills of our Tennessee countryside estate at the top of stone steps. Capitalizing on the natural beauty for an utterly romantic al fresco ceremony, the altar is accented by lush and bold floral design. Adorned in an ethereal Hayley Paige gown with a Georgette slit, Jimmy Choo suede booties, and her grandmother’s mink fur, the bride has a perfect vintage-modern look. A vintage Louis Vuitton lock bracelet completed her ensemble, and a statement flower crown and bold red lip carry though the feminine style of the 40s and 50s.

Seamstress Inspired Elopement

Wedding Design

Out of all the things we love about today’s styled shoot from Michelle Lea Photographie, Annie’s Room, and Rainbow’s End Floral, what we love the most has to be that it’s inspired by the photographer’s own grandmothers. Appropriately, the shoot brings in antique and vintage elements and gives them new life while simultaneously providing beautiful inspiration for couples planning their own events now!

seamstress inspired elopement - photo by Michelle Lea Photography http://ruffledblog.com/seamstress-inspired-elopement

From the photographer, Michelle Lea Photographie: This styled elopement was inspired by my two grandmothers. They both loved to sew and have tea parties. This styled shoot took place at The Millstone wedding venue located in Limestone, TN. This rustic venue was built in 1811. The mill served as a working mill until it was closed in 1994. In 2010 the mill was completely renovated to a beautiful unique venue. Every piece that was original to the mill is still there repurposed to beautiful works of art.

Colorful Boho Wedding at Historic Cedarwood

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Teale Photography

Oodles of gorgeous pinks, tons of lush greenery, an inspiring bohemian ceremony backdrop, and beautiful flowers everywhere you look make this wedding from Teale Photography and Cedarwood Weddings one for the books. If anything, this wedding proves that fuchsia is nothing less than a color for all seasons!

From the bride, Larin: We wanted to create an environment that blended rustic elegance with the organic warmth of a backyard bash. Capitalizing on the raw beauty of Cedarwood Weddings, our styling was romantic, playful, and totally us! I wanted our personal style to shine through in the details – and our guests definitely noticed! The color scheme, inspired by my bedroom pillows actually, was intended to complement the natural setting – blush to vibrant pinks, lush greenery, and mixed metals.

Bouquet recipe: My bouquet was a textural masterpiece of king protea, peonies, ranunculus, roselily, varied roses, hydrangea, wax flower, seeded eucalyptus, and cascading jasmine vine. It was so heavy, but I didn’t want to put it down all night!

From the very beginning, I knew I wanted our altar to be a lasting artifact we could display in our home. I created this free-flowing installation to give the already beautiful backdrop a layer of depth and whimsy. The pinks and florals were perfectly juxtaposed with more masculine accents – woods, skulls, antlers, and other raw materials to create an earthy vibe. And if my husband loves anything more than me, it’s his country – insert American flag everywhere.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Be you and have fun with it! Enjoy making each little decision – just try to make them only once! If you’re into DIY and questioning what to take-on yourself – I urge you to commit to at least one project! Just be sure to give yourself plenty of time, and you’ll be happy you did. Give your bridesmaids the opportunity to shine! I’m so thrilled each of the girls’ dresses wove their personalities into our day. Pick a venue that you find aesthetically special, even in it barest form, to be your canvas. Cedarwood Weddings offers guests a variety of settings on one property and the effortless flow from one to the next kept guests on their toes! Offer out-of-town guests a taste of your hometown, even if it is adopted. For us that meant a historic property exuding Southern charm, a bluegrass duo in the barn cocktail hour, and late-night hot chicken bites! And, let’s not underestimate the power of Southern folklore – our buried bottle of bourbon diverted a storm! Choose an experienced team and you’ll sleep better. Entrusting my vision to one holistic team made planning a (really fun) breeze – thank you for bringing our vision to life!

Berry Toned Garden Wedding Splendor

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Austin Gros

Fall is the season for berry tones, and we’ve got plenty of pretty plum, burgundy, and dusty pink tones in this shoot from Austin Gros and Enchanted Florist Nashville. “Lush” was the word of the day, with cascading floral arrangements, greenery chandeliers, and an allover elegant style that simply has our jaws dropping. Also amazing? The Briar Rose Gown from BHLDN with the most delicate back detailing.

Reminiscent of classic New England garden weddings, this garden styled shoot is perfect for couples who want to celebrate in elegant style, ala the Kennedys. The historic home and garden pavilion of CJ’s Off the Square, are the perfect setting for an upscale celebration with lavish florals and rich details. The florals were designed with a lush, cascading style in mind – from the crystal chandelier draped in blooms and greenery to the garland swag framing the garden entrance, to the crimson peonies and fresh grapes and plums tucked into the centerpieces. Classic white furniture and ivory linens add elegance without overwhelming the scene.

The bridal party dines at a white-washed farm table and lounge seating, which keeps it from feeling too formal. A lilac runner, with glass chargers and ornate silver flatware, add opulence.We absolutely swooned over how Kennedy-esque the couple looked in their attire. The bride wore BHLDN’s gorgeous Briar Rose gown while her groom looked dashing in his classic black tux and bow-tie.

Elegant Nashville Fall Wedding

Austin Gros

Listen up, guys and gals… It’s actually a bit absurd how good this wedding from Austin Gros and Big Events Wedding is. I’m just going to warn you now that you’ll probably want to set aside some time to soak in all the details, because they’re not even just good, they’re everywhere. Adair and Kane’s wedding in Nashville is the perfect welcome for fall, which is just right around the corner!

elegant Nashville fall wedding - photo by Austin Gros http://ruffledblog.com/elegant-nashville-fall-wedding

From the bride, Adair: Kane and I both felt very strongly about getting married in Nashville. We had both left our homes and moved to Nashville alone to start a life for ourselves. And roughly seven years later, we were starting to put our family roots down in Nashville together. Kane also wanted to get married in the fall. The native trees in Australia don’t turn and Tennessee has one of prettiest displays of fall foliage known to man. He wanted his family and friends to experience that and I loved the idea of everyone coming to our town and getting to experience a little piece of our life.

I wanted the day/night to move progressively and we wanted each space to be different from the last. The flowers and decor were to get deeper in color, as the daylight got more scarce. Each space would be slightly more elegant than the last. The ceremony would be during daylight with softer colors of blush, nude and cream and more natural, organically shaped arrangements. The cocktail hour at the pavilion would be at dusk and more color was introduced in the arrangements and decor. With sunset at 6:02 and dinner at 6:15 the greenhouse would be illuminated with candlelight and moonlight and would be dripping in jewel toned, lush arrangements with a bit more structure.

We wanted the day to feel intimate and private. We chose to have only 65 of our closest family and friends. It was really important to us that the day be about us officially starting our lives together. We didn’t want to invite anyone out of obligation. We also didn’t want to meet anyone for the first time on the most important day of our lives. We wanted to enjoy the day and actually get a chance to speak to everyone that we hold so dearly to us. It wasn’t just about us, it was about us sharing the moment with everyone that has supported us and helped us grow as individuals and as a couple. We also chose to not have any bridesmaids or groomsmen for this very reason. Everyone attending has been a part of our lives separately or together and made an incredible impact on us.

It’s really hard to pick just one moment for a favorite. The first moment we saw each other will always be what I think about. How his face lit up like a little kid excited to see Santa Claus. I had several people tell me after the ceremony that they had never seen a happier groom. We both loved the moment after we walked up the aisle as husband and wife. We finally got to see each other and catch up for the first time all day. We sat in the horse drawn carriage while our guests were taken to cocktail hour and talked about how we were so impressed that neither of us cried and how excited we were for the rest of the day. We spent the next hour getting our family photos and then our bridal photos snapped and had a ball. The pressure was off and it was party time.

Bold colors, black and white stripes, a Kate Spade vibe — this wedding’s got it all! Brooks and Megan brought along a tremendous team including Teale Photography, Southern Sparkle Wedding & Event Planning, and Sand’s Old Hickory Florist to make one heck of a dreamy wedding day, full of so much color and whimsy we couldn’t possibly resist it. Oh, and those bouquets? Don’t even get me started!

From the event designers, Southern Sparkle Wedding & Event Planning: Vibrant colors. Bold patterns. Gorgeous setting. This spring wedding inspired by the Kate Spade brand took a garden party themed wedding to the next level. Bold colors combined with black and white stripes pulled the look together and created stunning wedding images. From bouquets with citrus to bold striped table linens, the Kate Spade style was apparent throughout this wedding.

The Big Fake Wedding recently made their way back to Nashville for another bridal show event, this time planning the day around a “Roma red” theme. Deep rich red tones were in the spotlight, and an appreciation for the simplicity of Italian family dinner tables led the way at the reception.

Creative Nashville Wedding with Art Installations

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Eden Frangipane

The bride’s BHLDN gown, the organic centerpieces, the incredible art installations for the ceremony and the reception — these are just a few of our favorite things from Ashlee and Brent’s wedding in Nashville, TN. Eden Frangipane and Modern Vintage Events were the all-stars responsible for bringing together all the finishing touches, and to say they knocked it out of the park might just be the understatement of the year.

From the event designer, Modern Vintage Events: Ashlee and Brent are true creatives. She is a chef at Silly Goose, a farm-to-table restaurant and he is a design mastermind for Fort Houston, a creative gym in Nashville. Their wedding was full of creative touches, art installations and fun. Ashlee paid attention to each and every detail, from the food catered by her restaurant to the pressed menu flowers, gold leafed miniature horses, organic floral centerpieces and beautiful art installations for the ceremony and reception.

They got married at a working farm in Nashville and had amazing farm-to-table food, an assortment of pies and crafted cocktails. Everyone enjoyed lawn games including archery complete with headdresses. Everything from Ashlee’s dress to the hanging chandeliers felt very artsy and very Anthropologie. Ashlee pulled up to the ceremony in a 1961 Cadillac DeVille. The flowers were flowy and vibrant and popped perfectly against her vintage-inspired dress. Brent’s blue suit complimented everything perfectly.

Their ceremony may have been one of my favorites. One of her friends put together the flower installations and she brought rugs from her parent’s home to put under the architecture on the farm. They had musicians and their music included anything from “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys to “If I Needed You” by Townes Van Zandt. Both their mothers did readings during the ceremony.

Monochromatic Bride Flower Guide

Flower Guide

Photos by:

We’re super excited to share today’s shoot with you, put together by the wonderful Amy Nicole Photography and Violet Floral Design. This duo dreamed up a few different bridesmaid looks in monochrome palettes — a pink, a purple, and a green — with makeup, hair, and flowers to complement each one. While these are great ideas for bridesmaids, we also love that they’d work perfectly for a bride who’s open to some fun color for her own wedding look!

From the photographer, Amy Nicole Photography: Tricia Egan of Violet Floral Design and I envisioned a monochromatic shoot with three different color families to inspire some different bridesmaid looks + styles + approaches. We chose the color families Green shades, Purple shades and Peach/Pink shades and then selected a bridesmaid dress, hair and makeup looks, fresh florals, and hand painted canvas backgrounds (by us!) that all kept within each color family. Each model has a different style; Boho, Preppy and Vintage. See below for the details from each color.

Bouquet Recipe: Peonies, Garden Roses, Poppies, Ranunculus.
Our Preppy Peach bridesmaid wore a Posy by Kirribilla gown in the style “Willa.” Her hair was done in a classic chic french twist with a fresh peony garnish, she wore Stella and Dot jewels, and she had fizzy peach cheeks, bright eye color and a light coral lip.

Purple and Ivory Wedding in the Woods

Jen & Chris Creed

It’s styled shoots like this one from Jen & Chris Creed and Enchanted Florist Nashville that make me fall in love with purple all over again. We love how much attention was paid to all the little details here, especially the decoration for the gold chiavari chairs used for the ceremony!

purple and ivory wedding in the woods - photo by Jen and Chris Creed http://ruffledblog.com/purple-and-ivory-wedding-in-the-woods

From the photographers, Jen & Chris Creed: “Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”— John Muir (The Mountains of California). There’s a certain peace and calm that comes from being in nature, and that is where we found the inspiration for this wedding styled shoot. This is for couples who feel called to wilderness, and who want to celebrate with their friends and family under a canopy of trees, while still incorporating a sparkling style!

We started with the venue, a hidden gem just north of Nashville, TN, where the owners lovingly planted the rows and rows of pine trees, and continued to draw our inspiration from nature. The florals were designed with a loose and wild style in mind, and incorporated various purple hues as an accent to all the natural evergreens. The ceremony set up featured gold chiavari chairs under stunning mirrored star lights, to add a lavish touch to the natural backdrop without overwhelming it. The chairs faced a simple whitewashed whiskey barrel altar, and the aisle was lined with pine branches found on the venue property.

A lounge area was set up with whitewashed vintage furniture, perfect for taking in the surroundings during cocktail hour, or for the couple to slip away for a quiet moment! For the reception, we loved a barnwood table set amongst the pines, with lilac and plum linens as an accent. Succulents topped the menu cards, and we did two different look options with plates and chargers. One clear charger with antique china, and one a gold charger with a clear plate. The bride’s dress was a multi-layered tulle gown by Monique Lhuillier, which floated beautifully through the trees. The lace top was by Augusta Jones, and tied into the vintage feel of the lounge area and china. The bride wore a crystal headpiece for the ceremony, and later changed to a more whimsical flower crown for the reception! Her groom was handsome in a navy tuxedo and lilac bow tie.

Irish Inspired Wedding in Nashville

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

Morgan Trinker

What better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with an Irish inspired wedding in Nashville, Tennessee? Ginger and Zack made their wedding day completely unique to them as a couple, bringing together their love of travel (especially Ireland and Scotland), Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, and woodland creatures — and everything worked together perfectly thanks to a stellar team of vendors including Morgan Trinker, Spindle Photography, Kelly Dellinger Events, and Rosemary and Finch.

From the bride, Ginger: Zack loves rustic and handcrafted, and I love vintage and whimsical. It is a little difficult to summarize/label, because we basically just tried to roll all of our favorite things up into one brown paper package. However, the central thought that started it all was when we were wishing that money didn’t exist or that we could teleport our whole family to Ireland or Scotland to experience our favorite places and play tribute to our families’ heritage.

Since we couldn’t have everyone travel to those magical places, we first wanted to bring some of the adventure of a travel theme to our wedding. Then we wanted to incorporate our love for romance and epic stories (some personal favorites being Braveheart, Harry Potter, and Indiana Jones… yes, we are shameless nerds). Finally, we wanted to highlight the Lindsey Scottish crest, which is very important to us. When we were first dating, we noticed that the crest happens to feature a swan with a crown — and Swan is my maiden name. Zack gave me the crest on a kilt pin on the night he proposed, and it was a special symbol of our families coming together. We pictured colors like stone, emerald/moss, orange/copper, latte and ivory — which fit our love for all things woodland, rustic, and autumn. Basically, if you imagine a woodland elf marrying an adventurous hobbit in a moss-covered stone castle on a green, grassy hill in Ireland… then you get it.

Our first DIY project we did was creating our own save-the-dates using a vintage 1940s postcard of our wedding venue. Zack’s biggest undertaking was brewing two specialty beers for our reception to go with our catering menu. He brewed a Harvest Spiced Ale and a Dark Wolf Lager, which took many months preparation. I collected green bottles that were being thrown out or recycled during the year and saved them to be used for simple floral decor. Zack plays the bagpipes and nearly was a kilted groom, so to replace his kilt we incorporated the family tartan in other areas: groom pocket square and boutonniere, ring bearer suspenders, my DIY garter, etc. Our escort cards were miniature boarding passes which directed guests to their “destination” which were labeled by table numbers made with maps. We had handwritten dinner menus, ceremony programs, and maps to the reception modeled after the “Marauder’s Map” from Harry Potter. Zack made peanut butter (using peanuts from our garden) and beer bottle openers (from repurposed wood) for his groomsmen, and I sewed spirit animal tote bags for my bridal party.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Right after the wedding I wrote these down, because I didn’t want to forget how I felt immediately after the whirlwind was over. 1. Spending time on the personalized details makes it so much more meaningful, enjoyable, and memorable for everyone. Sometimes we were cursing our DIY ideas a few hours after we were already into them, but in the end you only get one wedding so why not just spend a little extra time? (That being said, don’t procrastinate any DIY ideas… better to just let those go. ha!) 2. Go ahead and start preparing yourself for the crazy, relative perspectives of time on your wedding day. The 10 minutes you are waiting to walk down the aisle is going to feel like more than an hour, and then the 4 hours of your reception is also going to feel like less than an hour! In both, just try to notice every little thing you can and take it all in. 3. No matter how much work you put in– especially if you happen to have crazy, big families like we do — you can’t control other people and their circumstances. Just communicate and communicate until you feel blue in the face… and then just let go, have fun, and “que sera sera!”

Country Meets Bohemian Wedding in Nashville

Bohemian Weddings

Sometimes we get weddings I catch myself staring at over and over again, and today’s from High Five For Love Photography is a prime example. Shaylee and Ryan had a wedding that perfectly fused bohemian and rustic style, for a look that’s as timeless as it is au courant. Let’s jump in!

country meets bohemian wedding in Nashville - photo by High Five For Love Photography http://ruffledblog.com/country-meets-bohemian-wedding-in-nashville

From the photographer, Chrissy of High Five For Love Photography: Shaylee and Ryan are our people, and this wedding was a freakin’ blast. We fell in love with them instantly when we met, and their engagement session goes down as one of our favorites ever. We’re so thrilled to add their wedding to that list, as well. The details were incredible — gigantic pink and gold balloons, the loveliest bouquets and succulent boutonnieres, gold foil temporary tattoos, the sweetest ring bearer, and DIY goodness all over the place.

The moves on the dance floor were so fresh — just wait ’til you get to the reception! Shaylee + Ryan got down to Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby” for their first dance and rapped their way through the entire evening. Stank-faces galore. Of course one of our favorite things about the day were the communal prayers that were so sacred, so full of genuine love, and so empowering for this couple starting their new life together. From start to finish, this wedding was pure joy to capture. So, so honored to do it.

Summer Garden Wedding Ideas in Chattanooga

One of my absolute favorite wedding ideas is using fresh fruit in centerpieces, so I was thrilled to see this gorgeous faux wedding from The Big Fake Wedding’s recent trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee. The pretty doesn’t stop there, though – this day was filled with innumerable great details, like the timeless wedding cakes, the citrus-toned bouquets, and one heck of a beautiful ceremony backdrop.

Campfire Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Jenna Henderson

When the weather starts to cool down, my mind can’t help but wander to s’mores, cuddling under blankets (preferably plaid), and drinking hot cocoa. Looking through these images shot by Jenna Henderson, I get the same cravings! Styled and dreamed up by the wonderful Feather+Oak and coordinated by Locklane Weddings and Events, this team worked their wedding magic to create this styled shoot that’s sure to warm you right up on the chilliest of days.

From the photographer, Jenna Henderson: The inspiration for this shoot came from a collection of vintage plaid thermos bottles, which served as containers for the table’s floral arrangements. Throw in a gorgeous bride with a cozy, checked infinity scarf, some delicious s’mores, and a cracking bonfire, and this shoot becomes the perfect inspiration for a unique, intimate evening wedding spent relaxing by the fire. Fun fact: our models for this shoot are true newlyweds, having just been married 4 days before the shoot!

Bohemian Historic Cedarwood Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Abby Weeden

When it comes to bohemian style, we’re always up for a good inspiration shoot. And when it comes to inspiring decor and beyond gorgeous scenery, Cedarwood Weddings never seems to disappoint! This time they worked with intern and photographer Abby Weeden Photography and Design to bring together a succulent- and metallic-filled session heavy with boho influence, and we think you’ll love the result.

From Linda Wright of Cedarwood Weddings: The Cedarwood Design Team recognizes that “Bohemian” is much more than simply a style. It is a state of mind. Inspired by the raw beauty of Cedarwood’s Nature Preserve, we decided to indulge our inner bohemians and create something unique and modern with ancient roots. The Bohemian way of life can transfer in to so many different cultures and the Cherokee Indian heritage that is so present in Tennessee encouraged us to focus on a more tribal form of Boho. Thus, “Native Bohemian” was born.

Flash Tattoos was a huge influence in the design of this shoot. We’ve been long time fans of their products and the geometric gold and silver shapes of their faux tattoos carried over into our paper goods and even dining elements. These sharp shapes were counteracted by rounded, whimsical, and authentic dream catchers and drums, made by Native craftsmen in Cherokee, North Carolina. Cedarwood’s vintage Airstream Trailer adds a retro feel to the shoot that was inspired by these geometric influences.

Our staff was thrilled to put their creative spin on this styling. Not only did our girls design and style the shoot, but they modeled in it and contributed intricate pieces from their private collections to fine tune this look. The clothing design was intentionally an eclectic collection that came together in a cohesive fashion. For the floral design and bouquets, we utilized foliage, succulents, berries and feathers in muted tones to highlight the earthiness of native style. We also tied these elements in to the attire for the style shoot with leg and ankle wraps adorning our bridesmaids. This blended flawlessly with the natural surroundings of Cedarwood’s 50 acre venue.

Wonderland Inspired Bridal Shower

Wedding Design

What better excuse to dress up in your frilliest dress and have a tea party than a sweet bridal shower? Event planners Everly Deer went all-out to throw a shower for one of their own teammates, Cassi, and they took on an Alice in Wonderland theme with endless whimsical details. Thanks to Jessie Holloway Photography for capturing the day!

From the event designers, Everly Deer: This event was extra special to us because we were celebrating our very own Cassi at her Bridal Tea Party! We had so much fun planning every detail of this event to create the perfect tea party for our gorgeous bride-to-be. Each guest had their own Wonderland inspired place setting, unique chair to sit in, the most adorable finger foods, and a flavored tea of their choice. Every inch of the long table was oozing with beautiful vintage finds and quirky knickknacks. Everyone gathered around to watch Cassi open her lovely gifts in front of this gorgeous wall that we decorated to make for a whimsical backdrop. We so love creating memories of events that will last a lifetime, even our own! A huge thank you to the incredible Jessie Holloway Photography for capturing every detail, and to everyone who came out to spend the afternoon in Wonderland celebrating the bride-to-be! Dearest congrats to you, Cassi!

Memphis Farmer’s Market Wedding

Rustic Weddings

You guys, no words can express how much I love when brides wear color on their wedding day. Ivory gowns are always a pleasure to see, but there’s something truly inspiring about a bride willing to step outside the box and go after the exact look she wants. Lena did exactly this with her baby blue and silver wedding gown, which fit in perfectly with her funky-chic, colorful barn wedding. Thanks to Kelly Ginn Photography for capturing this beauty!

Memphis Farmer's Market Wedding - photo by Kelly Ginn Photography http://ruffledblog.com/memphis-farmers-market-wedding

From the bride, Lena: Ever since I was little I have always loved everything vintage, which grew into a love of everything shabby chic. I remember watching the Shabby Chic TV show when I was young with my mom on Saturday morning and swooning over all of the DIY and fun finds. This inspiration really led me to be a scavenger for all sorts of artifacts to use everywhere in my wedding. The Farmers Market Barn just played into the shabby chic romance I had envisioned for our wedding day. We scoured Memphis for weird and “very us” venues and, passing by one winter day, we found this barn, which could be rented out but was not a “standard venue.” It was truly love at first sight! After finding the farmers market barn and securing it, we decided to throw in lots of little touches to really evoke a feeling of having a shabby chic funky Jewish mess of a wedding at the farmers market. Oy, it was the best! The theme really leaned towards embracing the fact that our venue for half of the year is an actual farmers market. I also loved adding the vintage and shabby chic detailing to really make it our own. Whenever anyone asked me what my colors were, I should have lied and said something awful like olive green and magenta, but really I went in with a pastel palette and it just exploded into every color, so we’re gonna go with rainbow, because that sounds really horrible and not anything like it was ;)

I could sit here and talk for days about all of the DIY projects that were done for our wedding. I made our dining room and dining table my studio, my art studio a storage room, and, well, the house looked like a wedding vomited in there for a good year. I did lots of small projects and lots of big projects. Creating my Save The Dates and Invitations were two of the more time consuming ones, but I loved every second of it; I even loved the long task of fancy addressing everything! I spent countless hours, countless. I made the wedding my full time job for over a year. It was so much fun!

I tied tulle for days to make the Chuppah under which we were married. I created our Jewish marriage license—the “Ketubah”—out of cut paper, and finished an entire season of a TV show in the process. (Thanks NETFLIX!) I fashioned countless chalkboards and scribbled out all the words on them. I sewed a gazillion buntings, and if I never see another bunting in my life I will be the happiest person. (JK they are hanging all over our new apartment in Chicago.) I know I made more things, but the day is a blur and I am sure I will see everything in pictures as I realize how much I have forgotten to mention. This wedding truly embodied a DIY wedding. My now-husband came up with the brilliant hashtag #jewityourself, and that became our motto. We had no wedding planner; I wore that hat as well. I went to all the meetings, booked all the vendors, and created the schedule. Our venue was so great in that it gave us the weekdays prior to the wedding to set up, and—I kid you not—we were there from 8am to midnight almost all of those nights. Thankfully we had some awesome friends and my (the brides) amazing mother to help us in those days prior to getting everything arranged. We seriously did everything but make the cake, serve the food, play the instruments, and of course take stunningly beautiful photographs of the entire day.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Sit back and really enjoy this amazing and fun time you have together. I learned early on that Wedding Brain 24/7 isn’t as magical as it seems. You have to remember that the engagement is there for you to grow as a couple, not just to plan to most epic awesome day ever. Make time first for your relationship and then the planning of the wedding, because the first one is what this is all about!

First Dance: “Carolina,” Ben Gibbard

From the photographer, Kelly of Kelly Ginn Photography: When I asked Lena and Sallis what their initial inspiration was for their wedding, my jaw dropped, I had tears in my eyes, and chills all over my body: “The Farmer’s Market offered ample opportunity for us to creatively construct a shabby chic wonderland lit by thousands of twinkling lights. We wanted our theme to be something fun and funky that harkened back to our southern roots and emphasized our love for a simpler time.” Lena and Sallis didn’t follow any common trends, they strayed away from typical traditions, and made their wedding the Lena and Sallis way. From the hand cut Ketubah that Lena did herself, to the dozen of wine/whisky bottles that were collected over the years from celebrations and date nights, and then hand painted on, to the thousands of twinkling lights that Lena and Sallis hung themselves, to the mix match pattern bunting that added the perfect amount of twang, to the linen strung chuppah stitched with the Star of David that Lena and Sallis snuck over and danced under when no one was looking, the day was made perfect because of all the time, and hard work that this couple put into their wedding. I asked Lena what her favorite memory from the day was, assuming she’d say “seeing Sallis for the first time,” or, “our first kiss.” No, not Lena, here’s the perfect answer she gave me: “The moment I walked into the barn when I was about to walk down the aisle. The orange colored glow of it all. I will never forget the lighting and the excitement of being steps away from being married.” I love that the artist inside of her most remembered the color of her day.

Travellers Rest Nashville Wedding

Rustic Weddings

They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, and we think newlyweds Kari and Colin would agree given their beaming faces in these images from Q Avenue Photo. The couple made their way down from their home in New York City to the bride’s home of Nashville, where they threw a relaxed party of a wedding for their closest friends and family, with a little help from Modern Vintage Events.

From the bride, Kari: Colin and I live in New York City but decided to have our wedding in my hometown of Nashville because we thought it a better setting for the type of wedding we wanted. Being from two different parts of the country, we knew this would probably be the only time in our lives that all of our most favorite people would be in the same place at the same time. Therefore, our priority was throwing a fantastic party to celebrate our marriage with our friends and family. We are both pretty simple, low key people and we wanted our wedding to reflect that. The venue we chose was beautiful and fit our idea of modest but warm and cozy. The grounds are amazingly diverse in setting. We had the ceremony in the front of the house, blanketed under huge magnolia and gingko trees; the cocktail hour was on the house’s sweeping side porch, overflowing into the gardens; and the reception was in the barn in the back. I loved the change of scenery and the creativity it allowed in decor. Plus, the venue was so beautiful itself, it didn’t require a ton of work to make it look good!

The best part of planning (and the advice I would remind anyone planning their own wedding!) was realizing we could actually do whatever we wanted. We didn’t have religious ties nor any traditions to uphold, so we were able to make the day as eclectic and hodgepodge as we wanted. I asked both my parents to walk me down the aisle because I’d seen it in another wedding and liked it; we asked a college friend to be our officiant, and he created an amazing theme about friends, family, and stories; in lieu of readings, we each had a friend speak during the ceremony as an introduction to us, with our officiant then pulling the stories together to introduce marriage; we wrote our own vows. Our ceremony was high energy with lots of laughter. I loved it because it wasn’t possible to make a mistake. There was no protocol or no “right” way to behave. It was wonderful to remember that throughout the day, and remember that we were there to celebrate with those we loved; nothing could possible make the day turn sour—even the mega downpour that struck an hour before the wedding!

In terms of decor, we didn’t choose a theme, rather just chose what we liked. We used wildflowers because they don’t limit your color palette. All the decorations were handmade by friends and family. Colin and I are both very bookish, so we threw in small details like old books and library check-out cards for decor. It felt so rewarding as our guests constantly came up to us and said, “It’s so YOU.” I asked my bridesmaids to pick their own light peach dress, and Colin decked his groomsmen out in matching shirts and pants, adding accessories of their choice. We told our guests to wear something comfortable — suits and ties discouraged. We only had one rule: if you own a seersucker suit, you must wear it. (This is the South, after all!)

Any advice to couples planning their weddings now? Think about everything you want in a great party, and then make that your wedding. Don’t focus on the little details from the beginning. If you want to have a wonderful big family dinner, prioritize the food and floor plan. If you want to dance all night, get a huge dance floor and an amazing DJ. There is no right or wrong when it comes to your wedding; make the day exactly what you want it to be, and with your friends and family there, it will be an amazing, memorable day for all.

Bohemian Luxe Winter Wedding

Wedding Design

A winter wedding inspiration shoot that’s equal parts glam, bohemian, and romantic is one that I simply can’t come across enough. Amy Nicole Photography, Kelly Dellinger Events, and Anne Whitson came together for this brilliant photo shoot with warm purple-pinks, gold, and plenty of bridal style.

From the photographer, Amy Nicole Photography: I recently did this inspiration shoot with an amazing team of vendors in the area and they helped my vision come together perfectly! We wanted to create a winter inspiration shoot, but with a bohemian twist. Laura at Southern Events had the brilliant idea of braided table runners, which we thought was a beautiful touch.

We envisioned a luxurious approach to winter 2013/2014, set in a French mansion-style atmosphere. Design was largely interior-inspired, featuring some stunning pieces of ornate furniture and a long tablescape with mixed metal candlesticks of varying heights. When we found Riverwood Mansion, it was just perfect for the shoot. We had envisioned a room with a baroque-style gold mirror, and when we first visited Riverwood, the mirror above the fireplace couldn’t have been more perfect. We also planned for understated floral design with full, open blooms in jewel-tone hues that provided a beautiful contrast against a champagne satin linen and braided table runners. We decided to go for a simply elegant place setting with mix-matched silverware and metal goblets to throw in an eclectic feel amongst the luxurious table setting. The bar vignette featured Gatsby-esque drinkware and a “naked” cake topped with pomegranate seeds.

Our bride donned a beautiful Sarah Seven gown along with a delicate veil. She traded in the veil after the ceremony for a dainty gilded Twigs & Honey headpiece — the perfect mix of bohemian and luxury. The bridesmaid also wore Sarah Seven and brought a little more glitz to the table.
