On Friday, Ashley’s Bride Guide featured the glorious wedding of Brandy & TH in a Real Nashville Wedding Story. Now, it’s time for details. Let’s start with the church, shall we?
When I started planning with Brandy, we knew a few things: one, we loved peony and green hydrangea together– the bride’s favorite bloom is the peony, particularly in pink, and she also loved the contrast of lime green hydrangea. One image she found and really loved was a wreath that incorporated hydrangea and flowers– so I replicated that wreath to go on the front doors and to flank the altar:
Our front door wreaths feature durable pink carnations– because the wreath was hanging outside, and it ended up being a very warm day, I wanted the wreaths to remain fresh and vibrant as a gift to the church once the ceremony was complete.
We envisioned a simple aisle that complemented the church and set the tone for the rest of the wedding: shades of pink and green and vibrant, fresh flowers complemented the church’s classic decor:
The aisle way was decorated simply, with the first three pews marked for family seating with roses and fresh cut ivy:
To the side, each stained glass windowledge had a hurricane vase with an ivory candle and was embellished with smilax and pink roses:
On either side of the altar, large wreaths sat at the base of the stair:
The unity candle table was embellished with beautiful details: a tall candelabra in silver wound with ivy and accented with flowers, the unity candle embellished in similar style, and an abundance of rose petals:
I love this image of the entry way table arrangement: it’s simple, but really complements the theme:
The altar pieces sat in large bubble bowls filled with moss and then antique green hydrangea, roses, peony, and curly willow:
To further communicate the spring feel, I added a few sparkly butterflies
The pieces were a bit modern, but still soft and pretty and complemented the overall theme of the wedding
