Last year I had the pleasure of guiding Danyelle and EJ through the full wedding planning process. Wedding plans culminated in an absolutely stunning wedding day at Clementine Hall in Nashville, TN. Danyelle and EJ's wedding was full of love and laughter. It was an elegant and classic occasion; and I loved planning this wedding.
From the start I knew that the couple wanted an upscale wedding. They opted for a plated dinner, full open bar, a mini champagne tower, live musicians for both the ceremony and reception, and even a live painter to capture their beautiful day. Their color was hunter green accented with gold. This was beautifully paired with classic fall colors for the florals, and candles were everywhere, giving a romantic touch to everything.
The ceremony was in front of the beautiful organ that is a focal point of Clementine Hall. Greenery and blooms adorned the organ while candles and small floral arrangements lined the aisle. This couple opted to not have a first look, so EJ saw his bride for the first as Danyelle walked down the aisle. It was a sweet and emotional moment. The ceremony was short but sweet (just as the couple wanted), and then it was time for photos.
While the couple enjoyed their first moments as newlyweds, it was time for my team to jump into action and flip the ceremony space into the reception. The transformation took about an hour and the results were breathtaking. Candles on every table paired with garlands or floral centerpieces; the room was simply magical. Danyelle and EJ did a "room reveal" and were blown away. I love that we were able to bring their wedding day vision to life.
After cocktail hour guests were invited to take their seats. After the traditional dances dinner was served. Shortly after dinner the toasts began, and we had a special surprise in store for EJ. Keeping alive a family tradition EJ's uncle surprised him with a song that included members of his family singing different parts. It was a memorable moment complete with silly costumes and lots of laughter. The rest of the reception was spearheaded by the Downtown Band, who kept guests on the dancefloor all night long. It was a party atmosphere filled with lots of fun. The night ended with a cold spark sendoff and the couple was whisked away in a classic Jaguar.
Danyelle and EJ's wedding was one for the books. Classy elegance mixed with a family reunion like party made for a most memorable wedding day.
Congratulations to this lovely couple!
