Celebrating Nashville's Most Romantic Weddings

Laura + Austin | Green Door Gourmet

Laura and Austin wanted a wedding that was warm, welcoming and perfectly them. We combined fall colors (bring on the deeps reds!) with a fresh timeless look (cue the white flowers!) - and it was magical!

Throughout most of the planning process Laura was living in South Carolina while Austin was living and working in Nashville. Nashville is such a popular wedding destination and so many of ANE's clients plan from out of state so this living situation was easy-breezy! We fit meetings in while Laura was in town visiting and Facetime-d and Skyped in between, all while Laura was selling her home and making the move to Nashville. Don't let planning from out of state overwhelm you, it's kind of become our "thing"!

Amanda + Matt | The Cordelle

Amanda and Matt are so super cool. Their whole vibe is so fun and so exciting and then Amanda had to go and say "navy velvet" during our consultation. Sold! Matt is a musician and Amanda is from Hawaii - wins across the board when we're talking about design. Amanda wanted their wedding to be one big fun party for their guests and I think we nailed it.

The weather wasn't quite cooperating on their wedding day so we threw down a beautiful blanket right in the middle of The Cordelle and surrounded them with their family and friends.

But these photographs don't need captions. These details, colors and textures definitely speak for themselves.   


If you saw my post about Ally + Ryan, you know I love the idea of each table having their own desserts. Amanda didn't want her guests to have to wait for dinner before having dessert (who doesn't love the chance to eat dessert first?) so guests entered the reception to tables full of assorted desserts so they could snack on sweets before dinner. 


Cheers, Amanda + Matt!

Audrey + Eric | Green Door Gourmet

Audrey was the best kind of bride - she knew exactly what she wanted, but she was totally open to suggestions for polishing up her vision. Eric was the best kind of groom - he knew what he wanted on the menu and he completely supported Audrey's ideas and vision for their wedding day. I loved helping Audrey blend Nashville with New Orleans to bring both her and Eric's lives together in one room. I especially loved that they planned every detail with their guests in mind, from the Cajun inspired menu, to the welcome bags, and all the details in between. 

Darby Cards knows the way to my heart and seriously knows her way around paper goods. Audrey asked for traditional wording with a modern texture and that beautiful combination is exactly what Darby gave her. 


It's no secret that Green Door Gourmet is one of my absolute favorites in Nashville. Every little well thought out piece makes the day a dream for couples who love the outdoor vibes, locally grown flowers and beautiful scenery. Added bonus: portraits in a greenhouse!

And then there's the oh-so-talented Christie (The Farmer's Florist). Audrey and Eric really live by doing things as natural and as locally grown as possible so having their friends and family at Green Door, in a room filled with locally grown flowers and food was just perfect. 


We put a lot of thought into the color and texture combinations that guests would be greeted with at each table. Audrey (and her neutral loving heart) wanted the room to feel elegant but not stuffy so we used a collection of beautiful gold items from Southern Events paired with tables named after important cities from throughout their relationship. But don't let the beautiful gold place settings fool you, guests enjoyed a wide variety of Cajun and southern comfort food including a biscuit bar from Chef and I. 


Cheers to a lifetime of laughs, good food and kisses, Audrey & Eric!

Ally + Ryan | Belle Meade Plantation

Ally & Ryan are the type of couple that you want at your party! They're fun, laid back but energetic, and completely and totally head-over-heels in love. I spent all of 2017 looking forward to their visits to Nashville (from Virginia) and our meetings at Belle Meade. They showed up the week of the wedding with not one, but two car loads filled to the brim with all of Ally's handiwork. Her creativity made their wedding day perfectly them and made me remember what a dream my job is. 

There is nothing more southern and classic than Belle Meade Plantation. But this couple was far from stuffy so we brought the fun to Belle Meade on a perfectly mild August evening 


That's not one, not two, not three but 7 perfectly custom suits. The grooms suit was custom made for a perfect fit from Alton Lane (Guys: If you're looking for a completely awesome suit experience, that includes Bourbon and a secret entrance, the team at Alton Lane has you covered.)


Special shout out to One10 Beauty (hair and makeup) for nailing it every.single.time.


Stella Rose perfectly captured Ally's love for natural and effortless florals from the bouquets to the beautiful table arrangements. 


Cake is most guests favorite part - Ally and Ryan had the perfect way to take their guests cake experience up a notch. We placed a different flavored bundt cake (Nothing Bundt Cakes) on each guest table. At the conclusion of toasts, Ally & Ryan asked guests to get up and move around the room sampling flavors and meeting new friends. With guests from literally every corner of the country, it was great way to break to the ice and get the party started before hitting the dance floor. 


I am so grateful for clients turned friends and I am so looking forward to watching Ally and Ryan's family grow in the years to come. 

Cheers, Ally + Ryan!

Annie + Nate | Bell Tower

Annie and Nate 

3 minutes into meeting with them, I knew they were going to be exactly the type of couple that I love to work with. Completely and totally in love, giddy with wedding planning excitement, smitten with the idea of spending forever together and equipped with a big, beautiful wedding vision. I heart couple likes these two!

Annie is as classy as they come. She wanted black and gold with a touch of pink, a little Gatsby and a little classic/old Hollywood. I brought all of my favorite vendors on board and we rocked it for Annie and Nate's beautiful November wedding at The Bell Tower in Downtown Nashville.

Before heading to The Bell Tower, Annie and her girls got ready at a beautiful Nashville AirBnB, perfect for her large {10 girls!} bridal party.  

And then there was their perfect little ring bearer, Wiley! {He's wearing a bow tie!} 

Cheers, Annie & Nate!
