Moody, romantic historic Nashville wedding
When the talented Erin McCall sent along these photos of Caroline + Nolan’s Nashville wedding, she said they aimed for ‘sophistication + artful details’. After seeing the whole set, we’re pretty darn confident that there’s no better way to describe it. Oh, and totally unplanned but amazing fun fact? We just so happen to be sharing their day exactly 1 year from the day they got engaged, last September 6. (Right?!) So scroll through all the pics and tell us you can’t srsly feel all the love and warmth that went into their day…
Elder Floral dreamt up the romantic bouquet adorned with big, white peonies.
Caroline’s recap of the day, My memories of the wedding day (especially the whole morning/getting ready) feel like a dreamy film reel of old home movies in my mind… clear snapshots of conversations with my dearest friends, the vision of my dress on its hanger next to the window, seeing Erin floating around capturing images of my favorite details and candid moments, random bursts of nervous excitement and pure joy with major stomach butterflies, so much laughter and sentimental tears on the couch in the bridal suite, my first glimpse of my unbelievably beautiful bouquet with peonies as big as my face, a stolen moment with my mom where we just sat in each other’s feelings of awe and thankfulness and giddy joy that the day had finally arrived.
Such a sweet film by A Little Long Distance too that totally captures Caroline’s words:
Caroline says, Actively choosing to let go of the plans when the day arrives is a MUST… You have prepared all that you can, and now is the time to let go and trust that others will take care of the details. Enjoy the day, look your girls in the eye, take mental snapshots of the small moments. In the end, you are marrying the love of your life, so if the entire cake falls on the ground or your dress rips or you forget your veil… Laugh it off and get a dance in with your new husband.
