04 Apr Hannah Grace & Charlie: A Romantic Garden Wedding
Hannah Grace and Charlie tied the knot with a romantic, dreamy wedding at the Cheekwood Estate & Gardens.
Charlie always had his eye on Hannah, ever since high school, but it wasn’t until later that Hannah realized he was the one. He won her over and the two have been inseparable since.
The two have always been fans of Cheekwood as they feel like there is “magic in the beauty of its gardens.” It’s where Charlie popped the question, and it was the perfect place to create a fairytale wedding in Nashville.
Hannah and her bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready at The Graduate Hotel. Dream All Day supplied the girls with a beautifully crafted charcuterie board filled with fine cheese, premium meats, fruit, and all the necessities to snack on while getting ready for the big day ahead.
The ceremony took place at Cheekwood’s Wills Perennial Garden, where the couple said their “I dos” under a breathtakingly beautiful floral arch.
Following the ceremony, a path of rose petals led guests to an enchanted cocktail hour. Guests snacked on little bites, including mac n’ cheese with strawberry marinara, mini chicken and waffles, berry & brie phyllo with fresh raspberry, and pumpernickel mozzarella with peach compote. There was also a lemonade and tea bar where guests could mix up their own concoction with anything from strawberry puree, sweet fruit syrups, and fresh garnishes such as rosemary and basil.
Then, the reception was well on its way! A formal dinner buffet was served, featuring a warm bacon salad, gourmet smoked gouda parmesan mac and cheese, creme corn brûlée with roasted jalapeños, roasted brussel sprouts, and a sweet pork tenderloin with a blackberry demi-glace.
While guests enjoyed the delicious menu, Hannah Grace and Charlie danced to Ben Rector’s “Extraordinary Magic.” Hannah says they chose the song because it “perfectly captures how we feel about each other and acknowledges the magic we know we have created together and will continue to seek in our lives as husband and wife.”
As a late night snack, guests enjoyed a biscuit bar with toppings such as fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese, various jams and jellies, and honey butter. It was a huge crowd pleaser!
Everyone danced the night away until it was time for the bubble send-off, while “I Love You Always Forever” by Better Who played in the background. Guests left with little jars of jam to go on and “spread the love.”
Congratulations, Hannah Grace and Charlie! We were honored to have been a part of your special day and we wish you a lifetime of happiness! Scroll on for more photos of their day by Jaclyn Simpson.
