Charming Nashville Wedding

I'm still trying to get over the little itty bitty things that didn't go my way on our big day. Specifically, you know the wind storms and rain that plagued our day making us move our ceremony indoors, or forgetting some specific diy projects at home that would have added that extra personal touch, or even the things that I am crazy to worry about like my hair, the extra five pounds I never lost, or the fancy shoes I decided not to wear because this bride to be wanted to be oh so comfortable. Oh yes, slowly but surely those things are fading into a deep dark hole of nothingness and in it's place remains the intense love, happiness and magic Apb and I both felt that day.

Enter this charming DIY Nashville wedding from Style Me Pretty and well I am completely smitten; and so touched by the bride's sweet story. Just when I thought a little rain could ruin my wedding day memories she goes on to explain how she was very sick the day of her wedding and even ended up switching the ceremony and cocktail hour times as to give her more time to feel better and freshen up. The gorgeous bride planned and planned and planned (much like I did) for months leading up to her wedding, careful not to forget every last and little detail. Yet, such is life when things sometimes don't go according to plan. And such is the beauty of the journey when you can sit back forget about the mishaps and instead focus on the excitement and happiness of marrying your best friend. Jessica, you looked incredible. Your wedding was beautiful. Your story? Inspiration to so many others out there. Rock on girlfriend! 


The maid's dresses are from Anthro, a place that Jess actually loves and used as a point of inspiration throughout her big day. Once the dresses were selected she found a jewelry designer on etsy who worked with her to create a custom and unique accessory set for each girl based on their individual taste and personality. What a great idea to make every girl look and feel her absolute prettiest. Can I just point out how gorgeous the florals are too? The bouquets make my heart sing with happiness!


I am totally in love with the birdcages and little bird details infused throughout the wedding. Over the 9 months that the two loves birds were engaged, Jess collected 13 birdcages. She painted 10 of them in an aqua-teal colour and distressed each piece by hand. She used the remaining white cages for the guest book table and head table, combing the look with antique tins, bird figurines, blue mason jars and funky garden flowers. The whimsical vintage look Jess envisioned surely came to life!

This is perfect ~ I love all the little details and the dresses are gorgeous. My cousin was sick as a dog the day she got married with a chest infection. You would never know it by looking at her pictures today but I felt so so bad for her. We can control a lot of things leading up to our big day but that is not one of them.
