Rustic and Whimsical Wedding in Tennessee

Tommy and Haley wed on the expansive grounds at Macedonia Meadows in Cookeville, Tennessee complete with picturesque outdoor landscapes and a large reception farmhouse barn.  The couple met through Tommy’s sister at one of his men’s travel softball games where they hit it off and the rest is history.  Haley describes her wedding day as perfect.  The couple was thrilled with the nature-filled atmosphere and wonderful weather.  They styled their day with whimsical pampas grass paired with greenery, macrame, and tan and ivory accents abound.  Their biggest piece of advice for other couples looking to save on budget is to shop on Etsy for décor elements.

Despite it being the most peaceful day ever, Haley does recall a funny moment, “My coordinator was taking my maid of honor, bridesmaids, and myself back to our bridal suite in a golf cart because guests started to show up while we were taking photos. In the process, she went off the...

Tennessee Smoky Mountain Vineyard Wedding

From the tasteful vineyards to the stunning views, Mountain Mist Farms was the perfect place for Jennifer & Jerod to hold their dream wedding in the Smoky Mountains. They held an elegant, and cozy wedding this past spring, and their wedding details enhanced the rustic chic that the barn venue already holds. 

They had an enchanting ceremony by the beautiful wooden cross that the venue offers, overlooking the vineyards. With the mountains as their backdrop, they did not have to include too many decor pieces at the ceremony site. However, the shepherd's hooks with draped greenery and blue roses outlining the aisle added to the simple elegance. Their arbor piece included ivory and beige florals with more greenery to tie it all together. 

The reception was held inside the barn, following the ceremony. With a ceiling full of lights hanging like rain, and grand chandeliers, it isn’t hard to mess up reception site decor. The barn features a grand hall, with ample space...

Tennessee Couple Hosts an Intimate and Sophisticated Destination Wedding in the Mountains

Kathryn and Anthony opted for an intimate destination wedding at Omni Park Grove in Asheville, North Carolina overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains after a memorable road trip they took there years before. Kathryn and Anthony met on a dating app while Kathryn was living in Boston, Massachusetts. Anthony was living in Cookeville, Tennessee and after a few months of a long-distance relationship, Kathryn moved to Cookeville as well. They made a road trip out of the move, which was the first of many road trips afterwards due to their mutual love of traveling.

“Asheville was our last stop when Anthony helped me move before we hit Tennessee and we celebrated New Year’s Eve there. Ever since then, we both have been in love with it. We went there several times after that throughout the years and thought it would be the perfect place for our wedding and for our family to travel to,”...
