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.
