From Sayher HeffernanMatt is from Melbourne and Eliza, Nashville. The two met in Cece Winans home after Matt was nearing the end of his stay in Nashville. They hit it off, Matt proposed in New York and less than two years later got married in Nashville joined by a strong Australian crowd. It was a fun few days in Nashville with food and bowling at the Pinewood social club, a rehearsals dinner complete with taco truck and then a super fun wedding at Wightman Chapel (Scarritt Bennett) and reception at Belle Meade country club. The styling of the day was elegant and simple with a focus on fresh flowers (Australian florals included).

Beautiful, Bright Inspiration Shoot at Carnton Plantation

Beautiful inspiration like this doesn’t cross our paths every day. So when it does, we tend to drop everything we are doing to soak up every last moment. Beautiful, bright and styled to perfection by Emerson Events - these images from Sawyer Baird couldn’t be prettier if they tried.

From Sawyer BairdWhen Lauren, from Emerson Events, contacted me about this shoot I was on cloud nine! Being a person who adores neutrals and deep moody colors I found myself surprised with how in love I was with this vision that Lauren had. These bright colors bring out the happiness that comes with warmer weather. It was a treat to be able to be apart of this shoot!

From Sara Heilwagen… Blackberry & Cotton is romance with Southern touches that evokes feelings of sweet tea, sweeping verandas and elegant charm. The natural colors and textures of the blackberries and cotton are reflected in the details. Soft white, textured paper with vivid, watercolor florals and blackberries appear throughout the invitations, menus and pie flags. The theme is continued on the program fans with the addition of a twist of grapevine for the handle. Kraft envelopes accented with golden liners and vintage stamps add a feel of nature.

The gorgeous mix of peonies, foxgloves, blackberries and greenery locally grown and arranged on a Tennessee flower farm create organic elegance in the bride’s bouquet and hair piece, groom’s boutonnière and centerpieces. Rich gold flatware and vintage china topped with cotton and lace place card handkerchiefs lend to the feeling of dining in celebration with family using Grandmother’s wedding china. The stunning, lace Aria bridal gown is a vision of traditional couture with modern sophistication. Soft make-up and a sweeping up-do show off every detail of the gown. The groom shines in a tan, single-breasted suit with a blackberry purple and white gingham dress shirt.

For dessert, there’s nothing sweeter and more Southern than pie. Mini blackberry pies are paired with blackberry vanilla macarons and a simply elegant fondant three-tiered wedding cake. The Southern romance of a warm, spring day and the scent of freshly baked pie is enhanced with the slow-sipping of a cocktail dotted with blackberry laden ice cubes from the bourbon bar. An evening of dancing under the lights in the 100 year old Maples Barn in the lush Tennessee countryside is the perfect start for a new life together as husband and wife. The cathedral ceiling and open atmosphere bring nature in to the party.

Love is spread with homemade jam favors in blackberry mint and blackberry bourbon blends for guests to enjoy when they return home. Burying the Bourbon is a charming, old Southern tradition where if a full, unopened bottle of bourbon is buried by the couple at the ceremony site exactly one month before the wedding, the day will be free of rain. Successful or not, un-burying the bourbon the next day at a casual brunch with family and the wedding party is a merry conclusion to the wedding festivities.
