Fun Wedding Day Adventure - from city to country

I knew when I met Sarah and Steve that their wedding would be fun! Well fun is an understatement; I think some of the guests called it epic.  Since most of their guests were coming from out of town they wanted to throw them a party, including both traditional elements as well as non-traditional ones.

Their wedding adventure started in downtown Nashville with the cityscape as a background for some great photos and a sweet first look.  Check out the fabulous mismatched bridesmaid dresses!







They and their bridal party enjoyed traveling around the city before their journey led them north to a rural retreat for them and their guests. (And being late because of a marching band competition, lol) With guests arriving from around the country, the couple wanted the day to be an enjoyable fun filled day with Nashville “country” charm. 

After arriving at Smiley Hollow, the ceremony took place in front of the large stone fireplace. 



The couple was so happy they literally skipped down the aisle when the left  :) 

Guests then enjoyed the food and BBQ made onsite. Beer steins and mason jars were provided for family and friends.   



DIY signs made from painted mirrors added to the decor.  The wagons and vintage signs are all part of Smiley Hollows charm. 




Instead of wedding cake, the birde chose to offer guests Danish Kringle from near her hometown in Wisconsin. 

The couple included their adorable dog in the festivities.  




Family and friends provided the entertainment with different music groups performing for the guests.  

The DIY photo booth from picture frames and props was a hit with the guests.
