Julie Paisley said it perfectly when she captured these two lovebirds: “If someone asked me to describe the perfect Southern wedding, I would just show them pictures of Katy and JT’s wedding.” And we couldn’t agree more. It’s the epitome of classic, Southern charm, with lace, lush florals and pure love between the newlyweds. See all the romance in our gallery right this way!

From Julie Paisley Photography… If someone asked me to describe the perfect Southern wedding, I would just show them pictures of Katy and JT’s wedding. This wedding just screamed Southern charm. From the amazing historic plantation, the perfect Southern lace gown, bowties, lush florals, darling little flower girls with floral crowns and so many special touches from family heirlooms used in the decor, it was simply perfect and Southern. The Carnton Plantation is such a special venue. Since it was spring, the gardens were in bloom setting a spectacular backdrop for this beautiful outdoor but very elegant affair.

Nothing brings me to tears faster than a heartfelt proposal. Especially when the groom pulls in Julie Paisley, Sugar Peach Productions, Cedarwood Weddings and Designs in Paper to help make his girl’s wildest dreams come true. What she thought was a photo shoot turned into THE “down on one knee” moment and they’ll deeply cherish the photos and film for many years to come.
She said YES!! Aaron proposed to Anna in one of the coolest ways possible! Anna agreed to model for a “photo shoot” at our Nashville venue with Julie Paisley Photography, but little did she know, an actual planned and styled surprise proposal was awaiting her. We worked with Aaron to create a youthful, fun, boho style to reflect Anna’s playful personality.
When Aaron presented Anna’s ring in front of a custom teepee, she asked “is this for real?”, thinking it was just part of the shoot. We arranged for Anna’s parents to be on Skype to witness the special moment and setting, which included a Cupid-inspired teepee, custom signage, arrows, feathers, XO balloons and a festive celebration with a mimosa bar and color-coordinated mini pineapple bundt cakes!
Dressed in Alexandra Grecco separates and a boho flower crown, Anna was naturally gorgeous. She and Aaron perfectly fit the vibrant elements of this summer outdoor proposal party, with personalized details and colorful decor designed by the Cedarwood Weddings team. Their inspiring engagement was beautifully documented with film photography by Julie Paisley and a video by Sugar Peach Productions.
