Stephanie + Manuel ~ September 27, 2014

Stephanie and Manuel were wed in an elegant ceremony at St. Phillip Catholic Church in downtown Franklin, before heading to CJ’s Off the Square for a reception in our garden pavilion. The Big Day was a sophisticated blend of their styles and heritage, with soft pastel accents and a Carnivale theme to honor Manuel’s Colombian roots. The couple and their guests loved donning their masks and dancing the night away! You can read more about Stephanie + Manuel’s sweet love story in this fun recap from Mid-South Bride.

Thanks to Marc Billingsley Photography for these lovely images.

Your planner will guide you through the whole process in just a few meetings, covering the details you haven’t even thought to ask and helping you feel confident in your choices.
  2. We have vetted professionals ready to bring your vision to life.

Linda + Matt’s September wedding had so many beautiful and unique details, but the key component for their sophisticated style was balance. The happy couple chose a few “statement pieces,” from the colorful florals to the hanging paper lanterns in the pavilion, yet we balanced those features with an easy, clean tablescape. Soft teal linens and a careful selection of flatware and glassware made the decor feel elegant and light. The bride’s blush Allure gown (bought at the white room in Lebanon, TN) is another GORGEOUS statement piece, but Linda’s low chignon up-do made her bridal style timeless and classic. The focal point was her stunning dress, with no distractions. The day felt sweet, Southern, and sophisticated from start to finish!

The team at CJ’s Off the Square is to help our couples build the Big Day of their dreams through careful selection and attention to detail!

Amber + Tyler ~ September 13, 2014

Soft southern romance? Just our style! Amber + Tyler’s September wedding was full of swoony details, from the muted pink + grey color palette to the gorgeous invitations and escort cards handmade by the bride’s maid of honor! We’ve rarely seen a groom so enamored with his bride-to-be as Tyler was when Amber came down the aisle. Such a priceless moment, perfectly captured by photographer Megan McGee. The day was truly a memorable one, and we wish the happy couple a lifetime of love in the years to come.

Thanks again to Megan McGee for sharing these images with us!  Enjoy!

CJs Off the Square, Jacque + Jon SMS May 2015 (2)

Our garden pavilion provides the perfect setting for an ethereal anthropologie-inspired scene like Jon + Jacque’s spring wedding. To bring this couple’s style to life, we blended woodsy, rustic features with touches of vintage elegance. Glass votives and crystals hung from bare branches, while moss and lace lined the tables. The bridal style was delicate and vintage-inspired, from her lace gown to the textured bouquet of pink astilbe. The bridesmaids dresses, a mix of blush pink and soft teal, are gorgeous shades for spring and summer nuptials!

All the dreamy details came together for a day of breathtaking beauty, exactly what we want for your Big Day!
