Historic Cedarwood Wedding In Nashville Tennessee

After seven years of long distance dating, Lanny and Tamara finally tied the knot at The Historic Cedarwood In Nashville Tennessee. This charming southern wedding was the place for them with a vintage barn, rolling meadows, flower gardens and to a ton of fresh natural spaces. They specialize in one-stop, customized, all-inclusive designer wedding packages for everything you might need. From the cater, florist and everything in between. As you can tell, the venue is nothing but the best and Derek Martinez does a beautiful job capturing Lanny and Tamara’s charming wedding. You can see more pretty pictures in the full gallery here.

Their Love Story-
Lanny and Tamara have quite a long and in depth love story. Lanny and Tamara met during their freshman year of college at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN, and his boyish charisma and her general awesomeness led to them dating before the year was out. Tamara transferred to Watkins College of Art and design in Nashville, but the couple still managed to see each other on a weekly basis.  After graduating from Austin Peay, Lanny began law school at Baylor in Texas. Sadly the couple only saw each other only every few months, and this combined with the rigor’s of law school for Lanny, and full-time work on the graveyard shift for Tamara, was understandably not the best time for either of them.

However, the couple still managed to see each other at least every couple of months, and after a mere two and a half years, Lanny graduated, got gainful employment, and moved to Fort Worth. Figuring that nearly seven years of dating was long enough (too long if certain parties are asked), Lanny popped the question while Tamara was visiting on New Year’s Eve 2011, and Tamara said, “Yes.” A few short months later, Tamara found herself and her loveable dog moved in and gainfully employed in Fort Worth.

Great Idea:
Lanny and Tamara filled up a space filled with local favorites. Moon Pies, vintage sodas, and goo goos. Basically all of the deliciousness that Tennessee has to offer. Another great option is just fill up a space with all of your favorite things. Ours would be a do-it-yourself iced coffee bar with fresh cream, those cute sugar cubes and fun swirly straws.

Instead of a traditional guestbook, create wishing bottles. Guests can write well wishes and place them in bottles that you will open in the future. Create bottles for the next five years and every year on your anniversary open a bottle and read the wishes together. A sweet and lovely way to remember your special day.

Historic Cedarwood is really an amazing place to hold your wedding. They even have a place for you to watch movies. Great idea for the kids! How cute do Lanny and Tamara look sitting on the back of the vintage truck watching the film with their wedding party?

    So many wonderful and inspirational pieces at this wedding. The bride & groom had some great ideas! One, in particular is the idea of a little cinema serving popcorn, what a great way to keep the kids under control! We have a similar idea at one of our weddings and the bride & groom are actually revisiting the venue to show their wedding video to their nearest and dearest. :)
