Karrah is aesthetically-driven and creative. She knew from the beginning that she wanted to create a wedding ceremony that honored her small-town heritage and a reception that felt like a warm, inviting dinner party with all her close friends and family. The ceremony was held at an old, small church down the street from The Cordelle, a restored Victorian-style home from the late 1800s in downtown Nashville. It was important to Karrah that the ceremony feel like home, a small town in west Tennessee.
For the reception, we drew inspiration from Karrah’s favorite shade of blue. We sourced a West Elm rug for her newly renovated bungalow that became a focal point. Linen lounge seating around the fireplace welcomed guests in. Karrah found the perfect ribbons from one of her trips back to NYC that we paired with ribbon and silks from Silk & Willow. Having worked in the wedding industry and having some experience with floral design herself, the flowers were another focal point in the design. The loose arrangements by Vintage Florals were filled with texture and contrast. Jackson vine adorned every nook.
Guests dined on an Tuscan-inspired meal and enjoyed conversation while a baby grand piano was played in the background. As guests mingled out on the porch, a Barista created specialty coffee drinks to enjoy with carmel pound cake while old vinyl records filled the air. Karrah and Jamie departed through a lawn of candlelight, where hundreds of candles were scattered by the big Hackberry tree.
