The time has finally come! I have gotten back the first batch of my wedding photos from my wonderful sister-in-law and photographer, Stacey Pentland. She is one of the most amazing photographers I have ever seen, and she and my brother, Erik, were kind enough to shoot my wedding photos.
Here is the front of our beautiful wedding venue, Historic Cedarwood. This antebellum home was built in 1835, and for the past several years has been used as an all-inclusive wedding venue. The only thing that wasn’t included in our package was our photographer and minister. Seriously. Everything else was included at a very reasonable price. If you’re looking for a wedding venue in Tennessee (specifically the Nashville area) I highly recommend this beautiful place!
We decided to do a less traditional guest book, so I made note cards with string tied around them that our guests would write a little message on and then hang the card on that twiggy looking flower arrangement.
We had refreshing cucumber water available for our guests as they arrived. And boy was it nice to have! Not only was that July day hot, but also VERY humid.
These pretty lanterns with candles inside lined the walkway toward the guest book table.
Here is the carriage house where Steve and his groomsmen got ready.
This was my beautiful bridal room inside the house where I got ready with my bridesmaids and flower girl.
Our cocktail hour was in this barn where Stacey took this gorgeous shot of my wedding dress.
I LOVED my bridal bouquet! It was exactly what I wanted. (Flowers are included with the venue).
My bridesmaids’ bouquets turned out beautiful, too. Exactly as I pictured them! They seriously did an amazing job on all the flowers as you’ll see in a later post. Well, I don’t want to bog this one post down with all the pictures I have so far, so I’m going to separate these into different posts. So come back tomorrow for our “Getting Ready” pictures!
