Rustic Historic Cedarwood Wedding from Ace Photography
January 16, 2012
It's going to be a good start to our work week, because I can't remember the last country wedding I have seen done so chicly. This romantic Nashville wedding was planned and designed by Cedarwood Weddings, and it is yet another knock out from the team. Anyone can see through Ace Photography's take on the day that this fête was gorgeous, rustic, and glamourous - just like the bride. Click here to see more!
Three adjectives that describe the day: rustic, romantic, music

The table settings were gorgeous! We loved the burlap and bling theme, it was the perfect mix of rustic country and romantic glamour. The table signs represented concert posters from the many shows Bill and I have seen together and fit in with our theme really well. The candlelit tables at sunset were really amazing and guests constantly remarked about how beautiful everything was.

The first reveal when we saw each other was incredible. I cried as I approached Bill in the front lawn but he did not get emotional until we moved to the Cedarwood porch. It was very touching and reminded me of how we support each other in our relationship. A close second was when we started rapping to the band's performance of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and Chris Weaver (band's lead singer) said we were the best rapping bride and groom he's ever heard!

Our best advice to brides and grooms to be would be to try to accomplish something every week so tasks do not pile up at the end. Be organized because there are so many moving parts you don't want to forget anything. Don't hesitate to take ideas from the favorite weddings you've attended - your friends will be honored that you incorporated part of their wedding into your own!
