A Franklin, Tennessee Love Affair Set Al Fresco

If you’re in need of a little wedding eye candy, this bouquet by Big Events, Inc. will do just the trick. It’s the perfect way to kick off this Tennessee love affair set al fresco, and Rachel Moore photographed the fun from start to finish.

From Molly Sohr, the event planner… The first time I met with Carli and Alex I knew we would have the best time planning their wedding day. Carli, having been in dozens of weddings in the past, knew exactly what she did and did not want. A HUGE elaborate wedding was the main item she did not want.

Early on in the process, Carli wanted the wedding to feel exactly like “them” as a couple. She wanted guests to experience a non-traditional, exciting, unique day that was just plain fun.

They chose Carnton Plantation via photos online and when they finally went out and saw the venue they knew they had made the right decision. Choosing a May date was the perfect time at Carnton because the garden was in full bloom. The goal vision of their day was for it to be laid back, incorporate their favorite items and keep it intimate.

Carli’s bouquet was by far my most favorite I have ever seen. I LOVED that she wasn’t afraid to use bright colors, we even used some of her peonies from her garden at home to give a personal touch. They wanted everything to be outside- and weather surely permitted, it was the most beautiful day of spring in 2016. For their reception layout they chose open seating at long farm tables topped with seeded eucalyptus garland with pops of color + lemons tucked in (Carli’s favorite color is yellow) all while dining on “brunch for dinner” concept (which included an omelet bar + mimosas!) under the Tennessee sky. After dinner the guests danced the night away to local jam band Magnolia Sons (Carli + Alex’s favorite band).

The entire day was unique to them, extremely fun and just perfect even down to the weather.

From Julie Paisley PhotographyIf 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.

Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson’s Wedding

Shawn and Andrew? They’re the definition of a power couple. Shawn, an Olympic Gold Medalist currently commentating in Rio, and Andrew, a Long Snapper for the Oakland Raiders, said “I do” with a celebration that felt uniquely and completely “them” planned by Fete Nashville. If you ask us, there’s no better way to lead up to tonight’s Olympic closing ceremonies than a trip to the wedding gallery photographed by Wild Native Co. plus a peek back at their adorable engagement.

 

I don’t think our wedding day

could have been any more perfect

…or any more “us.”

 

 

Andrew surprised Shawn by singing

“You’ve got a friend in me”

From Fete NashvillePlanning Shawn Johnson + Andrew East’s wedding was a dream come true! It was pretty exciting from the beginning when Andrew, a long snapper for the Oakland Raiders proposed to his sweetheart, Shawn, a gold Medal Olympic gymnast, at Wrigley Field right after she threw out the first pitch!


We started planning right away and chose the top of a hill for the ceremony, with 360’ of countryside views at a farm in Franklin, Tennessee. The alter was designed with gorgeous whitewashed antique church windows dripping with flowers, honeysuckle, and vines with more natural elements at the base including logs and lots of candles.

 Jack Daniel’s barrels served as aisle markers holding the most beautiful flower arrangements of white peonies, ranunculus & dahlias, ivory garden roses, and lots of textured greens. The bridal party walked through custom barn doors and down the aisle decorated with lanterns, candles and flowers. After the “i do’s, the new Mr. And Mrs. East jumped up with excitement to the cheers from all their friends and family and danced their way back down the aisle to Stevie Wonder’s “signed, sealed, delivered!”


At the reception, Andrew surprised Shawn by singing “You’ve got a friend in me” with his father playing the piano accompaniment. As a late night snack, we had the famous Ellie’s doughnuts food truck come to serve sweet treats to all of the guests. At the end of the night, Shawn and Andrew ran through sparklers to a silver Rolls Royce. At 7 incredibly delicious layers, the wedding cake was taller than the bride!

The reception was lovely with Shawn + Andrew sitting in an ivory love seat with custom “bro” & “bug” signs on the back; their nicknames for each other. Gold calligraphy on white washed wood hanging with gold silk ribbon. Head table made up of several reclaimed wood farm tables with vintage lace runner. 25’ ladder covered in greenery installed over the head table with exposed bulbs hanging. White french urns and mercury candles with loose and flowing greens.

Guest tables: a combination of farm tables and rounds with ivory linens. Centerpieces of barn wood boxes filled with low, lush greens hanging over loose and whimsical. Shawn’s gown is a glamorous silk duchess trumpet silhouette with a soft geometrical lace bodice. Matching lace trim along the hem of her gown also appears on the removable silk satin organza cathedral train. Shawn’s gown features the Elena Zavozina signature keepsake pearls cascading down the back of her gown. Shawn also had her custom headpiece and jewelry designed by European designer Elena Zavozina designed Shawn’s dress, all nine bridesmaids dresses and Andrew’s entire custom suit

From the Newlyweds… Fete Nashville truly made my fairytale wedding come true! I don’t think our wedding day could have been any more perfect or any more “us.” From how it ran to the details, Fete Nashville thought of for Andrew and I. They blew us away and we couldn’t have been happier!!!
