I don’t know if you know this, but yellow and gray is one of my absolute favorite wedding color palettes! So I was of course SO excited when Cedarwood Weddings sent over this rustic, chic yellow and gray wedding photographed by Justin Wright Photography! Usually yellow and gray is quite modern, but I am LOVING it with this rustic, southern style! And of course Cedarwood ALWAYS designs fabulous weddings! This one has a lovely combination of burlap, lace, and mason jars… absolutely GORGEOUS! The adorably southern bride Jenny will be sharing some insight into how this beautiful wedding came together… you’re going to love it!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

Our wedding was held a Historic Cedarwood in Nashville, Tennessee which is a vintage southern home.  Cedarwood has a design team which helped us SO much with our wedding. They provided the backdrop for our ceremony which was outdoors under a tree behind the home.  Cedarwood also has a barn which was the location for our cocktail hour that included a bluegrass duo while our guests were served various types of lemonade.  Cedarwood helped us coordinate our reception dinner with a local caterer which included Southern foods such as brisket, honey baked ham, macaroni and cheese, hash brown casserole, and homestyle green beans.  The design team helped decorate our entire wedding to fulfill our every dream.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

We wanted our wedding to be vintage, southern, and sun-kissed. Therefore, we wanted to find a venue which could accommodate our vision. In addition, we wanted to find a photographer and videographer who could portray our wedding how we dreamed. We wanted our wedding team to take our ideas and be able to expand upon them.

Did any of your vendors do anything special for you before, on, or after your wedding day that you would like to share?

The groom’s grandfather passed away a few weeks before the wedding. We already had everything printed, including the programs with his name listed. I contacted the company which printed our programs, explained the situation, and they completely reprinted the programs for free! Their generosity was very much appreciated during this hard time for our family.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

One of favorite things for our wedding were our personalized vows.  The section of our vows we loved the most read, “I vow to be there for you always; when you fall, I will catch you; when you cry, I will comfort you; when you laugh, I will share your joy. Everything I am and everything I have is yours, from this moment forth. As I have given you my hand to hold, I give you my life to keep.”  We wanted our vows to be original and special to us specifically, and we feel that we accomplished that.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

I would recommend that brides remember the small details of the wedding and personalize everything as much as possible. For example, we provided ‘I Spy’ wedding activities for the children at the ceremony. Also instead of buying wedding favors, we had homemade jam in vintage jars to provide an extra touch for guests. The day before the wedding, we provided each bridal party guest with personalized gifts, even the mothers. We tried to keep each guest specifically in mind.

That is some GREAT advice! Thank you for sharing your wedding with us Jenny! And thank you to Cedarwood Weddings for doing such a fabulous job, and to Justin Wright Photography for capturing it all beautifully!

Hmmm, I really don’t know if I can pick a favorite detail… I am LOVING the bridesmaid dresses. Although, the centerpieces are pretty awesome… the combination of candles, a few blooms, and burlap accents is absolutely gorgeous! Do any of you have a favorite from this wedding?? Or are any of you having a rustic chic wedding like this one? Better yet…. any yellow and gray weddings?!?! ;)
