Tennessee Inspiring Love Story

Before you go on with your day, you must read the Tennessee inspiring love story below. An excellent example of the power of love. Wedding 101 designed this lovely set up based on this real life love story. Captured ever so beautifully by Nathan Westerfield.

20 years ago, a cowboy and Southern belle looked into each other’s eyes and fell in love. It was a storybook romance destined to outlast the world. They began to design their dream home and form their life together. Unfortunately, life set in, disaster struck and the couple parted ways. Tammy went on to marry another gentleman. Dennis continued to build their dream house on their 20 acres of Tennessee countryside. Read on to hear what happened, and be sure to view all the photos in the full gallery here.

Makeup and hair artist Christi Smith incorporated the baby’s breath beautifully into the bride’s hair. We love the soft take on the french twist, such a perfect look for an elegant ranch style wedding.

The rest of the story …
Over the years, Tammy finally accepted she passed on her true love years before and moved on. One rainy Tuesday while she least expected it, love walked back into her life. With wide eyes and disbelief, her eyes filled with tears as she gazed upon her long lost love. As if no time had passed, their love was rekindled. Everything you see here was captured on their farm and inspired by their love story.

How much do you love those blue chairs with the pink pillows on them? Super cute … right? All the vintage rentals and props were from Southern Events. It is so amazing these days that you can go to a one stop shop to fulfill all your vintage rental needs. We love that!

Nashville, Tennessee cake makers, Silver Box made this exquisite three tiered white wedding cake. We love how this pretty wedding cake daintily sits amongst the baby breath and loose roses.

How To Make An Italian Soda
Having a Italian Soda bar at the wedding is an easy idea that guest will love. You only need a few ingredients to make these refreshing drinks – tall glasses,ice, Italian flavorings, sparkling water, cute stripey straws, fresh fruit (strawberries, lemons). You could even make cute signs to show guests how to make the drinks.
Step 1: Fill your glass up with ice 2/3 of the way full
Step 2: Add your choice of flavored syrup
Step 3: Add sparkling water
Step 4: Add fresh fruit or mint and a fun stripey straw

Steal Worthy Idea:
Sugar Wagon is mobile pastry company based in Nashville, Tennessee. Specializing in gourmet ice cream sandwiches served from their adorable, retro-inspired ice cream cart. Even though it is getting cold this is a great idea for your up and coming spring or summer time wedding.
