Sarah + James ~ April 9, 2016

Sarah + James tied the knot in our garden in early April wedding after months of planning a classically Southern celebration. Sarah made good use of the BHLDN Trunk Show we hosted last summer where she not only found her lace gown but the perfect venue and her wedding photographer! Seeing everything come full circle as she walked down the aisle towards James was such a special moment for us.  We love how Jenna Henderson beautifully captured the easy elegance of the day.  Congratulations to the newlyweds!

We know that Saturdays are the coveted traditional time slot for most couples who are planning a wedding. But here’s a secret we’ve learned from our years in the wedding industry: Saturdays aren’t always the most convenient, especially when you want to be mindful of your budget and quality time with your loved ones. Here are three smart reasons to consider hosting your wedding on a weekday:

Follow my recent work here: www.facebook.com/paulrowlandphotography

1. It’s more cost effective to host your wedding on a weekday.

At CJ’s Off the Square we offer discounted rates on our all-inclusive services for weddings hosted on Tuesday – Thursday.  You can put the money you’ve saved toward additional style options details, a gift for your spouse, or an extra day to your honeymoon.

2. Your preferred date is more likely to be available if it falls on a weekday.

Were you hoping to get married on a meaningful date like the anniversary of your first date, or the day you got engaged, but realized that it falls on a weekday? That’s actually a good thing, because while our weekends can get booked years in advance, our weekdays are more likely to be available for you to reserve. You’re also much more likely to get the first pick of vendors and specialty rentals that are in high demand… like the gorgeous vintage lounge seating from Southern Events.

3. You get more quality time with your guests.

We know that it’s hard for some people to get away from the office on a weekday, but if you’re hoping for a small, intimate ceremony with lots of quality time with loved ones, consider hosting your wedding on a Wednesday or Thursday. You and your out-of-town guests can spend the rest of the weekend relaxing and enjoying everything Nashville has to offer.

Abi + Gavin ~ September 5, 2015

Abi and Gavin said “I Do” on a lovely September evening in our garden pavilion. You can tell from the photos by Divine Images that the bride and groom were absolutely smitten with each other, and they truly enjoyed every moment of their big day. Abi looked radiant in her Martina Liana gown and beaded Steve Madden stilettos. We love that she chose a bright pink bridal bouquet as a pop of color, while the rest of the florals from Enchanted Florist were white and green! All the details came together for a fun and intimate celebration. Congratulations again to the happy couple!

Lindsey + JohnHenry ~ November 15, 2016

November in our garden pavilion is one of our favorite times of the year. The fall colors are at their peak, the weather is mild, and the golden light is perfect for an evening ceremony. Lindsey + JohnHenry said “I Do” on such a gorgeous fall day, with a bold color palette to complement the season. Paul Rowland did a fantastic job capturing all of the memorable, intimate moments between the happy couple and their loved ones – that photo of the bride hugging her father is the sweetest! Those are the memories we love to see happen in our historic venue. Congratulations again to Lindsey + JohnHenry!

The bridal suite is a sacred space in our historic home. We know that when a couple chooses our all-inclusive venue, they’re imagining all the important memories they will make here. The bridal suite is where all those beautiful last-minute moments happen between a bride and her loved ones before she heads down the aisle! We want the space to be full of light and timeless details, so that the photographer can capture all of the joy and excitement of the bridal party as they get ready.

We recently gave the suite a facelift, with a new coat of paint and a little rearranging. We’ve added a new privacy screen and curtains for easy wardrobe changes. An expansive table and booth add more seating and surface space for hair and makeup prep. A mirrored vanity in the corner is the perfect spot for the bride to finish “getting gorgeous.” We can’t wait to see more beautiful memories captured in this space!

Thanks to Phindy Studios for these beautiful images!

Maria Jose + David ~ October 3, 2015

After a formal ceremony at St. Phillip Catholic Church, these newlyweds celebrated with an opulent reception in our garden pavilion. Floral centerpieces and a crystal chandelier above the dance floor created a 20′s era glamour. For a stunning focal point to the evening, the couple used our gazebo to display their cake! Their unique style and personalized details made their evening unforgettable. Photographers Leslie + Dusty did a wonderful job capturing the love and joy between the bride and groom.
