Heather and Rick ~ May 20, 2017

Heather and Rick’s navy blue and gold wedding reception was a perfectly chic affair. So much love and detail went into each moment – it was a dream day!

The bride met her groom before the ceremony for a not-quite first look, holding hands between the doorway for just a moment – so sweet! After exchanging vows at Brentwood Baptist Church, the couple invited their guests into the Pavilion where they dined on a beautiful gold and navy tablescape. Tables also featured centerpieces of large white and pink blooms surrounded by votive candles in mercury glass vases. The newlyweds enjoyed their first meal as husband and wife with personalized engraved flatware on their sweetheart table, adorned with beaded gold chargers and lace runner.

The couple’s cake was as elegant as the day, adorned with lace and pearl decorations and a white “H” matching their wedding stationery and now shared last name – absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you Wendy Robinette for sharing the photos!

Rebecca + Sean ~ May 14, 2017

Rebecca and Sean were married on a beautiful sunny Sunday in an understated garden wedding. The bride was chic perfection in a strapless satin gown with elegant ruching, while her husband-to-be looked sharp in a blue suit that was perfect for their spring wedding. Rebecca shared a First Look with her father, in the grand foyer of the main house to greet him before they walked down the aisle together. It was so heartwarming to see father and daughter share such a memorable moment together before the ceremony.

After exchanging vows under the gazebo, Rebecca and Sean basked in their love while john myers photography expertly captured their romance throughout various portraits around the property. Guests enjoyed themselves at cocktail hour under the fairy lights in the garden before the bride and groom joined them for dinner and dancing on the pavilion. Personal touches, including a world map for family and friends to sign in lieu of a guestbook, helped make the entire day a truly intimate affair.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Grady, and thank you john myers photography for the gorgeous photos!

Our clients and friends gathered recently at CJ’s Off the Square to Savor the Summer, a menu tasting event and style showcase at our garden wedding and event venue in Franklin, TN.  The evening gave couples an opportunity to experience our all-inclusive event services as a guest so they could be confident about what they choose for their own wedding.

The event styling centered around Southern Garden Splendor – a style that incorporates light, airy textures, a natural color palette and spectacular, slightly wild floral details. Dusty blue, grey and natural wood tones carried throughout the three unique spaces that make up our venue: the historic home, our pavilion and the garden. We especially loved the new Luxe Lounge furniture package by the pond. The perfect place to enjoy a cocktail under the string lights.

Draping & crystal chandeliers in the pavilion created an intimate dining experience as the sun went down where guests sampled scrumptious menu items including Tuna Poke, Prosciutto & Chicken Roulade, Seared Bistro Filet, Blackened Trout, Lemon Herb Roasted Pork, Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Garlic Chili Roasted Cauliflower, & Truffle White Cheddar Mac & Cheese. Cake samples from Wolfe Gourmet Cakes made for a sweet finish to the day.

Thanks to Jenna Henderson for her amazing images from the event!

Joanna and Fabian ~ November 10, 2016

In an incredibly intimate November afternoon in the garden, Joanna and Fabian became Mr. and Mrs. surrounded by close family and friends. The bride donned a gorgeous flower crown to match her traditional bouquet by Enchanted Florist, while her groom was a true gent in a traditional tuxedo. Joanna was escorted by both parents down a rose petal-lined aisle, sweetly meeting Fabian under the gazebo. After exchanging vows in a Spanish ceremony, the newlyweds shared in a unique sand and rope ceremony symbolizing the beginning of their new life together – a truly personal and beautiful ceremony!

For the reception, low centerpieces of blush blooms were complimented gorgeously by gold accents provided by Southern Events Party Rentals. The newlyweds enjoyed their first meal on a loveseat where their sweetheart table was front and center for all to see, set with custom menus to complete the tablescape. After dancing the night away, Brandon Chesbro captured their pure bliss as the happy couple snuck away for some gorgeous portraits in the garden before their sparkler sendoff.

We are so honored that this beautiful couple allowed us to share in their gorgeous day. Thank you so much to Brandon Chesbro for the stunning images!

Sydney and Shaunte | April 22, 2017

Sydney and Shaunte had a magical Franklin wedding day filled with glitz, glam, and gorgeous details. Their Gatsby-inspired wedding was evident from the gold details on the invitations to the white feathers in the centerpieces as well as stylish attire for our couple. The bride stunned in not one dress but two! For her ceremony style, Shaunte’s Mori Lee gown featured all over beaded lace with a blush liner and comfortable but stunning strappy sandals. Sydney looked dapper in a white dinner jacket and navy bow tie.

When it was time to dance, Shaunte changed into an absolutely gorgeous flapper inspired Sheri Hill dress with gorgeous gold beaded details and a feather skirt! We’ve never fallen so in love with a reception dress before!

The couple took advantage of a break in the rain to capture some sweet images in our garden and then they capped off their magical evening with a three tier navy, white and gold cake by the artists at Wolfe Gourmet Cakes. When night was over, the newlyweds rode away in gunmetal gray vintage car to begin their happily ever after.

Thank you to Lindsay Campbell Photography for sharing these images of such a magical celebration!

Catherine and Heli – April 13th, 2017

Catherine and Heli had the most romantic spring wedding in the garden with a color palette inspired by their florals. Their chosen blooms of hydrangeas, peonies, and succulents were expertly coordinated throughout their day, from the gents in their chambray blue suits to bridesmaids in mauve gowns.

Their day started out with the ladies getting primped in our bridal suite while the gents enjoyed a fun game of cards in our man cave. Once the stunning bride slipped into her beautiful BHLDN gown, she met her husband-to-be outside in the garden for a romantic First Look. With the azaleas in full bloom, the couple was all smiles in the garden and around the house for truly gorgeous portraits. Their adorable pup, Colby Jack joined them wearing a specially designed floral collar by Enchanted Florist – we just love when couples bring their fur babies to celebrate!

Following their intimate garden ceremony, the newlyweds enjoyed dinner and dancing on the pavilion, where round tables were covered in gorgeous low arrangements surrounded by mercury votive candles. Their absolutely gorgeous cake by wolfe gourmet was topped with the sweetest gold cake topper as thoughtfully placed florals wrapped around the tiers.

Congrats to the newlyweds – it was an honor to host your destination wedding in Nashville! And thanks to john myers photography who captured the day beautifully.
