I don’t talk much about myself here on SMP…I am so enamored with all of the stuff that you guys are doing, I tend to leave myself out of the mix. You guys know that I just had a little girl, Audrey. That I live in Boston. That I have the best job in the world. But, another little piece of my soul, that really helped to form who I am today…are the four years that I spent in Nashville, Tennessee going to college.
So of course, anytime I see a Nashville wedding, I am taken right back to those incredibly blissful days, where I just had to wake up in the morning to see my best girl friends, where we sat on a porch drinking lemonade (okay, not really lemonade but it sounds a little better that way), wasting the day away in the lazy Summer sun.
Today’s featured wedding is so wonderfully Southern, so perfectly Nashville. I just had to share!

From Bonnie, the gorgeous bride…
I got married in May on my parents farm where I grew up. We really wanted a creative & festive, southern affair with lots of personality. Plus I am a graphic designer so I designed the invitations and other details (more on the invitations in a bit).
Guests drove up the driveway greeted by “burma-shave” signs. My mother’s friend is an artist and created them for us – they were a huge hit! There were 6 signs…”Winding Road, Fresh Green Grass, Musicians Play, Oh Happy Day, To Wedding Vows, That Last”
more to come!
