    Ah, sweet summertime…What a beautiful dress and that bouquet is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! I absolutely love it! I also like having a bright blue necklace with her dress–what a fun way to incorporate your “something blue” in an easy-breezy way!

I have to say, I sure do love The Parsons’ portraits of the bride and groom – especially the shoe (er – shoeless) shot! Meg + Josh moved the party indoors for a warm and rustic barn reception at Southall Eden designed by the fab folks at Vintage My Wedding. Anyone else think their reception venue looks like a real-life country dance hall just waiting for some line dancing and a few YEE-HAWS? Lisa Coffman with Unique Flavors Café & Catering prepared a proper Southern spread atop burlap and quilt-covered banquet tables. (Yes, guests sat on hay bales!) Naturally, M + J opted for live music at the reception. Visit Jeremy + Ashley Parsons’ slideshow from the rockin’ day here, and y’all have yourselves a great fourth day before Christmas!

See all the photos from Meg + Josh’s wedding in their Real Wedding Gallery!

Describe your wedding flowers: We used daisies, pin cushion mums, dahlias, green hypericum berries, camomile and Queen Anne’s Lace. The bouquets were bound with strips from vintage quilt tops, and finished off with buttons. The men wore single-stemmed dahlias on top of a quilt piece bound with vintage lace.
Describe your wedding cake: We had six different kinds of pie instead of a traditional wedding cake.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? I think our biggest challenge was the weather. Two days before the wedding, the forecast looked like rain so we had to make the decision to order a tent for our cocktail hour on the lawn. It was disappointing, and we feared a tent would take away from the aesthetic and decor of our staged cocktail hour. Fortunately, the tent added a nice perimeter to an otherwise vague, undefined space. All in all, everything turned out better than planned. And of course, it never rained.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Writing and saying our own personal vows. It made everything that much more special and real. Since we are wedding photographers and we go to so many weddings, we’ve noticed that so many couples just breeze through the ceremony without realizing that it is the most important part! Our ceremony was incredibly intimate and emotional. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We recently found out we are having a baby!!! So we are looking forward to getting no sleep and changing dirty diapers. But seriously, being married is so incredible, and we can’t imagine how awesome it’s going to be to have a baby together.

It’s the Tuesday before Christmas, so naturally we’re bouncing off the walls. Don’t judge – I’m sure y’all are, too!) Something besides Santa we’re excited about? Today’s Tennessee wedding from Jeremy + Ashley Parsons. As the Queen of Reality T.V., I’m pretty darn excited that Meg + Josh met while – wait for it – on the country music series Nashville Star. Talk about star-crossed lovers! My other favorite detail about this wedding at the rustic Southall Eden? The bridesmaids ahh-dorable red, yellow + white Anthropologie frocks and ruby red sandals. (The bouquets + bouttonieres, designed by A Village of Flowers, is a close third.) The bride, who wrote the song played during her big walk down the aisle, looked every bit the country superstar in a custom v-neck lace gown. Dawn Schenkel of Premier W.E.D. planned the outdoor wedding for these singing songbirds.

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We met on a reality show, of all places! We both had moved to Nashville separately to pursue our music careers as singers and songwriters, and it was in 2007 when we crossed paths while trying out for a reality show called “Nashville Star.” Out of the 20,000 people that auditioned, we made it to the top ten on the show. It was a crazy time in our lives, being on television and falling in love at the same time. We were star-crossed. We’ve been singing, writing and touring together ever since.
Describe the proposal. Josh planned a ski trip for me and my best friends a few week before Christmas. I didn’t know that Josh had also secretly invited my parents along, too. The plan was for Josh to propose at the top of a ski slope, ski to the bottom where my friends and her parents would be waiting to surprise us and celebrate. But, being a first time skier, and spending most of his time on his butt, Josh couldn’t seem to find the right moment. It was after his final fall that he said, “Hey, I’m already down here, so… (took off his skis, got on one knee and pulled the ring out) Will you marry me?” We somehow made it to the bottom of the mountain, and met up with all our friends and family for lunch. It really was perfect day.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Perfect, blessed and emotional.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: I wrote the song that accompanied me and my father down the aisle. It set the tone perfectly.
What was Southern about your wedding? Everything! We had hay the bales to sit on during cocktail hour, padded with quilts, galvanized tubs with beverages, mason jars with birdseed and candles, vintage linens on every cocktail table, vintage food tins as vases, and a ton of antique plates and serving dishes. The ceremony took place in a large tool/work shed and the reception was held in the hay loft of an old red barn. Our menu was down-home goodness. We served slow cooked BBQ brisket with caramelized onions, parmesan herb baked chicken, smoked gouda potatoes au gratin, half mashed red skinned potatoes, roasted vegetable macaroni and cheese, biscuits and cornbread. Our caterer did an amazing job. Our band was a rockabilly trio that we found playing one night in a Nashville honky tonk. They were a blast.

    Beautiful wedding that we were honored to be a part of! P.S. It was actually a Tennessee wedding in Leiper’s Fork just outside of Franklin, not in Georgia as stated in the blog. Oops ;)

    This is my dream wedding! The Rockabilly band. The good Southern food. Hay bales. It’s beautiful! I hope mine will come close to this.

    I love weddings that change your perceptions. I would never have thought of half of the ideas here and they are 110% removed from what I had from my own wedding, yet I adore everything on this page, it’s beautiful and truly depicts what I believe a wedding should be like — sunny and happy.

    I LOVE Josh and Meg! They are such wonderful people! I knew them before they got married as they came to visit Pensacola, FL and even took my Senior Pictures when I was in High School! That’s so great to see them and their GORGEOUS wedding!
