Romantic Elegance in Nashville's Historic Venues

Stephanie and Tucker's wedding is actually a fine-tuned and fabulous destination wedding. They live and work in Atlanta, Georgia - but when it came to planning their wedding they were certain on two things: October and Nashville, TN. With a linger affection toward the past they gave a nod to the Music City as it is where they first met and both sets of parents reside there. Not having been a little girl spending her adolescent years pining over her one fairytale wedding, Stephanie rather planned off the feeling she wanted the day to evoke. Florals and some soft neutral colors consisting of ivory, white, blush, peachy/pink, mauve accented by greenery set the tone and overall vibe for the romantic elegance in Nashville's historic venues. They selected the Union City Hotel not only for its picturesque arches and elegant accents, but also because its' a lovingly restored 120-year old former railway station that captures the romance of a bygone era - one in which Tucker's great-grandfather and name sake spent working for on the railroads of the Union Pacific. To welcome their guests the entrance to the terrace was staged with an antique gold mirror sign topped with flowers. The focal point - and one of Stephanie's favorite décor elements - was her amazing seating chart on the terrace designed exclusively for her by Elliott Events. It stood roughly 12-foot wide and 10-foot tall greenery wall with five large gold antique mirrors that hung on the wall. Each mirror had hand-scripted calligraphy and listed the table numbers and the accompanied guests at each table. The top of the seating chart was a stunning arch of white, blush, mauve, and yellow flowers. With a dual purpose the seating chart also was the perfect backdrop for guests to take their own photos in front of throughout the evening. Soft details like this lend themselves to the overall ambience of this romantic elegance in Nashville's historic venues making it absolutely one for the books.
