The inspiration behind this wedding was simply love. Both bride and groom picked out different aspects of this wedding based on the things they loved, and it all came together into one gorgeous day. The vibrant florals, by The Enchanted Florist, and the beautiful Tennessee venue created a warm and playful atmosphere to this couples special day.

From the Bride:During the planning of our wedding, everybody kept asking me what our theme was. I never had an answer! The theme was simply a mixture of everything we liked! I love bright colors, Brian loves old trucks. I love tacos, and Brian loves home-brewed beer. All of these things helped make the day awesome!
The ceremony was outside, up on a hill overlooking the country. It was definitely colder than expected, but our wedding party (girls especially) was a bunch of champions for standing beside us even if they were turning blue! During the ceremony, we all got a good laugh when we heard the neighbors shooting off shotguns in the distance. The pastor said, "Well how's that for a Tennessee Amen?!"
The small twinkle lights used in the reception looks so soft and elegant, and we love all the rustic touches that the couple incorporated into this vibrant Tennessee Wedding.
The reception was indoors, thankfully, and BEAUTIFUL! We had a taco bar and margaritas for dinner, with chips and salsa during our "happy hour." We also had 3 different homebrews, one that was called "Briffany Brown Ale."
We also had an old white truck as our getaway car. It was manual with the shifter up on the left side of the wheel. Brian was nervous to drive it down the hill on the gravel road...at night.......in the rain, but we made it! I. All in all, it was a really dreamy day, and everything went smoothly. Although the wedding was awesome, being married to your favorite person is the best part!
Read on to see how much this vibrant wedding cost. Please note that costs change as the years go by, and prices are subject to change. This is just one couple’s breakdown to give you a rough estimate on how much a wedding like this may cost you.
Our entire wedding cost approximately $20,000. We did get the venue for free though. The Venue was actually a friends private property. The most money we spent was on food and liquor-about 25% of the budget. The cake was $800. Invites and stamps cost about $500. The rest was spent on wedding attire, musicians, pastor, decorations, gifts, DJ, venue clean-up, and day-of wedding coordinator. We had a lot of friends offer their services for free or a good deal. We felt truly loved. For example, the old truck was borrowed from a friend. Some other friends brewed beer for a good deal. We bought a bunch of milk glass at thrift stores and sold them to the florist when it was over. The DJ was a friend. I definitely recommend using your social media connections...everyone always knows someone who does something! People are generally happy to help others get married!!
