From Alyssa Rosenheck Photography… I recently helped The Perfect Pair Nashville rebrand her store which is filled with layers of fashionable staples that apply to all seasons in a very conscious and artful way. She has a glorious bootie wall that I immediately fell in love with along with her casual chic style. I love that the booties can be worn with dresses, skirts, jeans, shorts, a cool hat and cut offs, great accessories etc.

Whitney Dunn Daniel has been a stylist to some of Country Music Royalty. She has curated labels that are environmentally mindful and mostly family owned. Whitney enlisted her close and talented friend Rachel Halvorson to create a space for her clients that is chic and casual.


1. A Neutral Bootie | Like this one from Coclico. It elongates the leg, looks great with all black, and pairs well with dresses or pants.

2. Geode Stud Earrings | These Liz Legg studs pair well with all of my jewelry. A pair of earrings that I rarely change out.

3. A Neutral Tote | These Nisolo totes are made right here in Nashville of the most wonderful leather.

4. A Great Wavy Blowout | From my friends at the Dry House in Nashville. Nothing makes me feel more ready for an event. They last for days! With my hair done, I feel more put together.

5. Molecule 01 | My all-time favorite scent. It’s mysterious and simple and smells unique on everyone.

From Cassidy CarsonI’m so excited to be submitting Tim and Dolly’s SURPRISE wedding! It was one of the most memorable weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Every aspect of their day was filled with significance and every detail reflected their personalities.

From The Bride…Given that this would be a second marriage for both of us and having done the big wedding before, Tim and I both agreed that something smaller and more intimate suited us best. Honestly, I would have eloped; however, Tim was adamant that his mother would never forgive us and she confirmed his belief on a phone call one day when we posed the question. After considering a destination or a small family wedding, I came across the idea of a surprise wedding. I posed the idea to Tim, and he loved it. Being from Nashville, it would have been nearly impossible to keep our wedding small so the idea of a surprise wedding centered around Tim’s birthday in May seemed the perfect choice especially given our venue location that could only accommodate 50 people. Those invited would include immediate family, a few out of town friends, and a group of couple friends from our neighborhood that had become like family to us. Paperless Post digital invitations were sent inviting guests to a surprise birthday dinner with guests realizing upon their arrival that they had been the ones surprised.

Once we had decided upon a surprise wedding , we immediately knew that we wanted to host our special day on Roaring Creek Farm. Over the course of our dating relationship, we frequented Joe Natural’s Farm Store & Cafe in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee and had come to love Farmer Paul (aka Joe) and his wife Pat. Having attended several dinners on their farm where the food, ambiance, and decor made for an amazing overall experience, there was no doubt that we wanted that same experience on our wedding day surrounded by our family and friends. Another plus for us was that they would pretty much handle all aspects of the wedding including food, rentals, place settings, decor, flowers, and dessert . We only needed to hire the photographer, band, and then decide what to wear. It allowed our wedding weekend to be virtually stress free, and allowed us a bit of surprise when we showed up to see our wedding vision come together.

Not only was the proposal and wedding a surprise, but the dress was a surprise as well. I had fallen in love with the dress after trying it on, but didn’t feel that my budget would allow for such an extravagance. Though in my heart I knew that I had found my dress, I continued to look, order online, and try on one dress after another hoping to convince myself that another dress was “the one.” A wonderful friend, having seen the dress and confirming it was perfect, conspired with Tim to buy the dress. If it was the dress I wanted and would feel beautiful in, Tim wanted me to have it. He gave my friend his credit card number, and told her to order it and have it shipped to me at work. Upon the arrival of the dress, the box actually had the name Donna Kelly on it. I kept denying the dress was mine given the name listed wasn’t me and I knew I had not placed an order. It wasn’t until every co worker had been asked who it belonged to that I had someone open the box. Upon describing the dress to her over the phone and confirming it was indeed the dress I had fallen in love with, I called Tim. I knew he had purchased it for me as it was just the type of thing he would do once again confirming that I was marrying the man of my dreams.

Having a wedding outside on a farm in May can certainly have one checking the weather daily. Luckily for us, the wedding weekend was beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. Not only did the weather cooperate, it can be said that the farm animals did as well. During the wedding vows as I was asked to say “I do,” a goat, ironically named Dolly, decided to speak up at the exact moment I said those two little words. Our friends and family couldn’t even hear my response over the goat’s baa. I guess Dolly the goat decided she wanted to marry Tim too. It had everyone laughing, and was quite the memorable moment.

Following the exchanging of rings by me and Tim, Tim made a promise and vow to my six-year-old son, Finn, that not only was he vowing to take me as his wife but he was vowing to take Finn as his son, and would love him as such. At this moment, Tim presented Finn with a silver band as a symbol of his love for him. This was a perfect way to unite our family, and to include Finn in the ceremony vows in such a unique and special way.

Rustic Elegance in Nashville, Tennessee at Mint Springs Farm

Charming is a word we tend to use a lot on SMP, but when it comes to a southern wedding as sweet as this one from Jessica Lorren, there just doesn’t seem to be a more fitting adjective. Rustic yet elegant, sweet yet sophisticated - even with all the gorgeous details sitting in this gallery love just seems to outshine them all, and it doesn’t get more charming than that.

From The Bride…Brandon and I wanted our wedding to speak to who we are, both as a couple, and as individuals. We wanted a classic, yet relaxed feel to the day, with elements of southern romanticism. For us, this meant tailoring elements of a classic wedding, so that it fit who we were. We had traditional wedding vows, yet we also wrote our own, and instead of having one minister to officiate the wedding, we had two ministers who were both very important and influential in each of our lives. I also had my father and grandfather walk me down the aisle. It was so important to me because my grandpa, who is still spry as ever at 90, has been such a significant part of my life, and has taught me how to truly love life, and not sweat the small stuff.

After the engagement, I began looking at Style Me Pretty almost daily for wedding inspiration, and pinned countless of their pictures on my Pinterest. From the beginning I knew I wanted the colors to be light and ethereal, and I went for a classic palette of blush pink, white, and ivory. I loved the way these colors looked with the light wood colors in the open-air chapel and the reception barn.

The days leading up to the wedding were hectic, of course, but perhaps the best part was how relaxed the entire day was. My planner, Brandy, and everyone at Mint Springs made the day so easy and stress free. My maid of honor and bridesmaids were truly the best, and I know I could not have made it through the day without them. The whole day was truly indescribably perfect, from arriving in the morning to driving off in our Rolls Royce that night.

My advice to other brides? Enjoy the day, knowing that at the end of the night you’ll be married to your best friend. For me, it was realizing that I had spent months planning, and I completely trusted my planner to make the day beautiful. Thus, all that was left to do was enjoy and savor every moment.
