Emily and Chase were such a sweet couple. Their ceremony was at the Scarritt Bennett in Nashville. It was a very personalized ceremony. They had special readings and songs sung by family and friends, and they had their mothers participate in the unity candle ceremony. You could really tell that Emily and Chase wanted to include their families on their special day and show that through their union two families were coming together as one. The ceremony was very formal and respectful. Decor was minimal as Wightman Chapel is already so beautiful on its own. Greenery wreaths were hung on the doors and a greenery garland with candles highlighted the altar.
After completing pictures at the Scarritt Bennett the wedding party boarded a party bus and headed over to Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro for their reception. With the ceremony now complete this group was ready to party. After a heartfelt welcome speech given by Emily’s father and a traditional family song sung the reception was in full swing. Music was provided by the Emerald Empire Band and they kept the guests grooving all night long. The reception ended with a sparkler sendoff.
All decor at both the ceremony and reception was created by Emily. She was a DIY bride who created a beautiful wedding. Her colors were dark green and gold. Candles were on every table giving off a romantic glow. One thing I particularly loved was how Emily honored her grandparents who had passed away. She used their original cake topper on her cake and had a photo of them cutting their cake on her cake table. She also had a collage of photos honoring family members who had passed away next to her guestbook.
