Today we’re excited to share with you Lindsey & Dominick’s beautiful, rustic ceremony held at dusk right in the heart of downtown Nashville. This elegant affair was captured by the talented folks at Evin Photograhy, and we can’t wait for you to see how magical the evening was, filled with delicious peach, ivory, green and gold details!

The stunning bride carried a bouquet of beautiful ivory and palest blush garden roses, white hydrangea and ivory calla lilies, encased in gold and satin ribbon.

Meanwhile, fern fronds, peach roses, gilded greenery and berries added a light and whimsical touch to the bouquets, making them almost as much fun as the bridal party that carried them.

The bouquets rested in water and provided a perfect backdrop to busy wedding preparations.

The ceremony was simple, green and light. The reception, held at Houston Station in downtown Nashville, was a cozy and beautiful celebration. Mercury glass votives and gilded greenery on the tables, decadent live sashes on each table and chair, overstuffed furniture and luxurious blooms scattered throughout helped to create the perfectly intimate and warm environment for these lovebirds.

Tables were also accented with a variety of single stem arrangements and more golden touches (we say, the more gold, the better).


These gorgeous cube vases and delicate compote dishes held low and full centerpieces of tulips, hydrangeas and beautiful roses that echoed the bridesmaids’ bouquets.


Even the chairs got some much deserved love at this celebration-beautiful bunches of greenery embraced each party-goer’s seat.

Down to the last detail, this wedding was truly special. As the party raged on, a beautiful living chandelier of tulips, ferns and hydrangeas overhead helped to make the already busy dance floor that much more magical.

farmhouse sunset It just doesn’t get much more Southern than this. Last June, we had the pleasure of creating a sweet party on Cadie & Aaron’s family farm to celebrate their marriage. These two are the perfect Nashville couple-amazing voices, true love and no shortage of cowboy boots on their special day. Joe Hendricks Photography captured some truly special moments from the ceremony, and as the days get longer and the weather heats up, we’re thrilled to share this beautiful summer shindig with you all.

Calhoun_Rodgers_JoeHendricksPhotography_Rodgers23_0_low Weddings are about celebrating family: newly formed ones, those who can be present to dance and sing, and those who cannot be there for the day but live on in memories. We were honored to help this darling bride remember some of her own on her day.   Calhoun_Rodgers_JoeHendricksPhotography_Rodgers11_0_low Calhoun_Rodgers_Joe_Hendricks_Photography_Rodgers13_low Calhoun_Rodgers_JoeHendricksPhotography_Rodgers108_0_low Calhoun_Rodgers_Joe_Hendricks_Photography_Rodgers311_low     One shy ring bearer later, the beautiful ceremony led into a lovely starlit night in the country-with plenty of music and dancing.
