Forget that less is more mindset, grab your favorite cowboy boots, dust on that glitter eyeshadow, and throw on some fringe because this Western glam wedding is about to change your entire wedding inspo board. This team channeled their inner Dolly Parton to bring us this innovative twist on a Nashville country wedding and we’re all about it! Think over-the-top balloon installations with pops of watermelon and geranium pink then level up with some disco balls (because, why not?). Add in a photo op in front of a wall of gold and platinum records, thanks to the perfect venue–the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and well…it doesn’t get more Nashville than that.
Weddings by Abi & Co., Frances and Jane Floral Design, and E. Floral Design came together to bring this dazzling inspo to life and also designed these vibrant floral arrangements and installations. We love how Katy Carl Photography captured all of the bold colors and played with flash to give these photos that paparazzi feel and our couple their moment in the spotlight.

The floor-to-ceiling windows of Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum let the natural light pour in and created the perfect ambiance for the couple’s getting-ready shots. Braidbabes gave the bride the perfect boho glam half-up hairstyle and topped it off with a delicate braid crown. For makeup, the bride’s look was dewy and natural, showing off that bridal glow. In lieu of a veil, the bride opted for a tulle cape to add in that rock-and-roll element and it complemented her A-line lace and chiffon gown beautifully. The groom brought the country with a brown velvet blazer, floral printed tie, and dried floral boutonniere.
With the dazzling Nashville skyline as the backdrop, the bride made her way down the aisle towards the abstract floral installation where her groom eagerly awaited her framed by a cascade of twinkle lights. Her bouquet, designed by E. Floral Design, featured muted tones, like soft blush with hints of deep marsala, while the ceremony florals focused on the bright red, pink, and white from the color palette and were made all the more vibrant because Frances and Jane Floral Design opted for dried florals in neutral hues to take the place of traditional greenery.
After the “I do’s”, guests were offered festive cocktails like a bright orange Aperol spritz. As they sipped and mingled, there were plenty of opportunities to snap a selfie or two in front of the balloon installations. They then made their way to their seats where they found gilded guitar placeholders inscribed with their name. Though each unique, the tables focused on the warm pink and red tones in the color palette and kept the floral arrangements low and long to encourage conversation (this is a party after all!). Clear acrylic ghost chairs and crisp angular glassware added the perfect modern touch to this Western soirée. When the time came to bid the happy couple goodnight, guests surprised them with a platinum streamer exit–the perfect end to the perfect night.
