Like our Family Heirlooms shoot, this editorial looks like a good time was had by all, doesn’t it? You just want to jump right in to the photos! Having a band on hand will do that, and a band was most definitely necessary for this story, where everything was inspired by the sweet song of the South. We are SO lucky that Nancy Ray, Amber Housley, and Cedarwood Weddings (all Blue Ribbon Vendors!) collaborated on this gem… please enjoy!
Amber put together a wedding weekend welcome pack to rival the Savannah version in our Generations Past editorial! These goodies are all Nashville or Tennessee favorites.
This team did such a great job incorporating crafty ideas while still maintaining a clean and cohesive look over all. Love the boutonnieres made out of sheet music!
Oh my word, this wreath is a stunner, isn’t it? I was immediately smitten. With it as the centerpiece of your ceremony, I don’t think you’d need any other decoration.
Speaking of showstoppers, these little belles and beaus definitely qualify. All five are the nieces and nephews of photographer Nancy Ray — we love that they were able to incorporate actual family into the day!
I’m sure the music from those triplet drummers was just lovely, but there was a real bluegrass band on hand, too — Jace Aaron and the Ranchers.
A pretty drink station is such a good idea for cocktail hour. It doesn’t have to be fancy, either — thyme sprigs dress up lemonade in simple glasses just beautifully!
We’re all about creative guest books, and this album is an especially good idea. It would look striking framed on the wall in a newlywed home!
I can’t get over this cake table — that patterned linen makes such a splash! Even if you don’t have the budget for custom linens, splurging on just one for a focal point can make a big impact. And I’d consider buying instead of renting, too. That way, you’ll have a special piece that reminds you of your wedding to bring out for special occasions for years to come!
We’d love to hear: What’s your favorite part of this editorial? I adore the ceremony wreath and everything about the cake and its table!
