Stephanie and Matt – April 7, 2017

Stephanie and Matt’s April wedding was a gorgeous affair, complete with family, friends, and their adorable pup! While their wedding design was timelessly chic, this fun couple incorporated their personalities throughout the day in order to have a wedding that was as unique as their love. Stephanie stunned in a strapless Watters dress with lace detailing while her husband proudly wore his Air Force uniform and donned some dapper shades. Their pup, Chubby, was truly a star in his own right with cuff links just for the occasion!

After a romantic First Look in the garden, the couple exchanged vows under the gazebo. For their reception, gold lanterns and blue linens donned the tables in the event pavilion. Their “Love at First Swipe” cake topper was a sweet homage to how the couple met online, while their Oreo Dunking Station showcased the couple’s favorite sweet treat. The night ended with a beautiful sparkler sendoff as the new Mr. and Mrs. celebrated becoming husband and wife.

These photos were captured beautifully by Caley Newberry. It was truly a magical day!

Lindsay + Jeremy ~ October 22

Lindsay and Jeremy are such a fun loving, sweet couple with a wonderful sense of humor and a love that absolutely shines. Their October wedding featured a black tie bridal party and elegant colors in a Fall palette. Lindsey carried a bouquet featuring orange dahlias by The FLWR Shop, and was gorgeous walking down the aisle in a classic dress by Sarah Seven. She was met by her dapper groom who was the true gentleman, dressed in a black tuxedo.

The couple exchanged vows in a sweet garden ceremony officiated by a close friend. And when they shared their first kiss, there wasn’t a dry eye to be found! Before their reception officially began, the newlyweds snuck away to share some enchanting moments throughout the property just as the sun was beginning to set. Thank you to talented photographers at Carter Wright Photography for capturing the day so beautifully!

There is nothing that melts our hearts more than a romantic First Look between a soon-to-be husband and wife. It adds to the joy and romance of the day, and makes for the sweetest memories! We absolutely adore how more and more couples are choosing to share this once unthought-of moment. Here are some of our favorite First Looks that have happened throughout the property.

The Front Steps

One of our favorite spots to share a First Look is on our front steps. daisy and ross took a break before the day’s festivities to privately read their vows to each other in a relaxed, gorgeously intimate way.

The Historic House

Couples that want to save the magic of the garden for their ceremony often choose a spot in our historic house for a First Look. Brittany and Chris had a classic hand-holding moment where neither bride nor groom could see each other just yet. After their First Look, Brittany and Chris exchanged personal vows and some sweetly happy tears!

The Grand Foyer

It is so picturesque when a beautiful bride walks down a staircase to make a grand entrance. Brittany had a First Look with her father (don’t forget to include a first look with dad!) in the grand foyer of our historic house – such a heartwarming moment!

The Garden’s Iron Gates

The white iron gates in the garden are the perfect backdrop for a romantic moment before the ceremony. We love when couples choose this spot to say “Hello” before saying “I Do.”

First Looks are such a romantic addition to a wedding day. The excitement that builds is so sweet, and when the couples finally lay eyes on each other it is such a beautiful and emotional moment! We can’t wait to see how more couples incorporate this new tradition into their big days.

Sarah + Chris ~ September 26, 2016

Sarah and Chris’s intimate nuptials took place in our garden on a lovely September day. With a soft lilac and gray color palette, these two managed to have a timeless wedding that transcended any typical seasonal design. Sarah’s dreamy ball gown with sheer neckline was absolutely enchanted, and she was so sweet as she prepared to exchange a First Look with her husband-to-be. After seeing each other for the first time on their big day, the couple romantically read personal vows to one another before their ceremony. It’s such a gorgeous new tradition – we love seeing couples confess their love privately! We loved being a part of Sarah and Chris’s beautiful wedding and wish them the sweetest Happily Ever After!

The lovely day was captured perfectly by The Photographix.

Kara + Dave ~ October 15

We love a fall wedding – the garden is so beautiful when the air is cool and crisp and the leaves on the trees start to turn! Kara and Dave’s October wedding was a delightful autumn affair, featuring white pumpkins and gold accents. The couple shared a lovely First Look in our garden before their ceremony, where The Enchanted Florist personalized the gazebo with overgrown vines and stunning soft fall florals to match. For the reception, Kara and Dave made sure their guests had a grand time by providing a photo booth and some color coordinated dancing shoes! After cutting their delicious cake by Wolfe Gourmet Cakes, the newlyweds walked through their sparkler send off and into a Vintage Rolls Royce provided by Grand Avenue. We were thrilled to help our couple celebrate their fairy tale day!

Thank you, Paul Rowland Photography, for capturing each moment so beautifully.

Stephanie + Tim ~ September 17

We love the all of the glamour and bright smiles from Stephanie and Tim’s wedding day! Not even a little rain could stop these two lovebirds – when this September day turned out to have rain showers, Stephanie and Tim exchanged vows on the Pavilion overlooking the garden. Guests were seated comfortably and kept dry while the bride looked enchanting in her Monique Lhuillier gown. Bridesmaids were chic in their varied mixed metals sequin dresses, beautifully adding gold, silver, and rose gold to the wedding’s color palette. The couple opted to keep the rest of the wedding design organic, with overgrown foliage and greenery at every turn. From the Edison Bulb Chandelier by Nashville Event Lighting to the sprigs of Rosemary on each place setting, this wedding combined the organic greenery of the outdoor garden perfectly with the glitz and glam of a big wedding day.

One of our favorite moments was when Tim wrote a sweet love letter on Stephanie’s Badgley Mischka wedding shoes and presented them to her right before their ceremony. Such a thoughtful and romantic gesture that brought tears to her eyes (and ours!).

Thank you to Paul Rowland Photography for capturing this absolutely gorgeous wedding day!
