A vintage style was the perfect option for Lindsey and David’s gorgeous pastel wedding that I have for you all today! Captured beautifully by The Collection, this couple met and fell in love in Nashville, so naturally they decided to have a destination wedding at one of the most amazing venues in Nashville, Cedarwood. Wanting something natural, sweet and simple, Lindsey chose a pastel color palette and paired it with vintage details, and the outcome was absolutely amazing…
From the bride, Lindsey:
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Cedarwood has a wedding planner designated to you and they help plan the entire thing. All I had to do was show them a few pictures and answer a few questions and they took care of the rest! My Mom really helped me as well and made a few of the props that we used around the wedding.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
We knew we wanted to get married in Nashville, TN because that’s where we met in college and a lot of our family lives there or could make the drive there, but I lived in Texas at the time and my husband lived in Ohio so I really wanted someone who could do a lot of the planning for me. That’s what we found in Cedarwood because they do a lot of weddings and already have vendors so I didn’t have to spend a lot of time hunting down caterers or florists, etc. Plus I wanted an outdoor farm wedding that was fun and beautiful, and Cedarwood really lends itself to that because of the location and the resources the staff has in decorating and really pulling off a wedding that fit my tastes.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
I got a lot of ideas from Pinterest about flowers that I would want because I had never thought about that kind of thing before. I decided on something pastel and sweet with the pink and white and some light blues to contrast with the dark navy that I had my bridesmaids wear. I didn’t want everything to be overly navy, so we kept the tablecloths white and just did navy napkins. We used some of these Spirit of Nashville postcards as a template for the table numbers because a lot of our friends came from out of town and the fact that it was in the city where we fell in love was really special to us.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
The fact that we got to see a lot of people we hadn’t seen in a while and having all our family and friends surround us and really enjoy themselves at our wedding was my favorite thing. Our friends are quite the dancers.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
The pastel color palette is fabulous, don’t you think? Which do you prefer- subdued, pastel shades or bold, bright shades?
