Laura & Matt: Bright Southern Wedding in Nashville

Laura + Matt’s bright southern wedding in Nashville was a picture perfect evening complete with autumn sunset colors like teal, orange and burgundy. Planning by our Dream Team, led to an unforgettable night of laughter and love at Belle Meade Mansion. Day of preparation began with Laura and her bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup wedding-day-ready with Blush + Honey. Later in the afternoon, Jen and Chris Creed captured sweet photos of the the soon-to-be husband and wife. The ceremony took place in the stables, with a beautiful chandelier provided by Bright Event Productions lighting up the area, as Laura and Matt said their vows. 

Following the ceremony, cocktail hour began on the back lawn. While Laura and Matt took photos with family members, guests munched on tasty hors d’oeuvres such as creamy cucumber bites, mac n’ cheese bites and pimento tomatoes. Shortly after, doors to the Carriage House opened and attendees were seated to a plated candied pear salad. Tables were adorned with bright, colorful flowers from Gradient + Hue Floral Design. Our culinary team crafted main dishes like Jack Daniel’s whiskey pecan chicken and herbed roasted beef tenderloin served with sides of au gratin potatoes and sage and brown butter carrots. Laura and Matt shared laughs and tears as those close with the couple gave heartfelt speeches.  

After dinner, a beautiful two-tiered cake by Homestyle Bakery was served while guests wrote bucket list ideas for the newlyweds. Then it was time to get moving on the dance floor.

Rounding out a night filled with southern classics, was a late night snack of sliders from Hattie B’s and an ice cream sundae bar. Once the dancing died down, guests sent the newlyweds off with streamers. 

Thank you, Laura and Matt, for allowing our team to be a part of your day. We wish you all the best! Keep scrolling for some southern wedding inspiration.
