Chic Tennessee Wedding at The Emporium Center

We seriously adore the autumn vibes in Jennifer and Cash’s chic Tennessee wedding at The Emporium Center of Arts & Culture, especially the deep reds and overgrown greenery throughout the décor. Photographer Dixie Pixel captured the most romantic moments of the newlyweds walking through the brick streets of downtown Knoxville. As if the glittering gold tablecloths and ghost chairs weren’t enough, this glamorous wedding was taken up a notch by Jennifer’s incredible fitted Oscar de la Renta gown.

The Couple:

Jennifer and Cash

The Wedding:

The Emporium Center of Arts & Culture, Knoxville, Tennessee

The Inspiration:

I was never the girl that grew up dreaming of my wedding day- or dress for that matter! I knew it would just be a reflection of who I was and who my future husband would be at that time in our lives; it would simply reflect us both. We liked the idea of our overall feel to be a simple elegance — a timeless, yet chic look. And the dress proved to set the tone while in the early planning stages. I had traveled to Nashville with my mom and twin sister a couple of weeks after Cash proposed to begin the dress search. I knew I wanted something timeless-something that was more ‘red-carpet’ worthy than your typical wedding attire, but that also remained chic and minimal. The Oscar de la Renta dress was the very first dress I tried on. I knew immediately it was the one. Pulling from the aesthetic of the dress and Cash‘s slim, tailored light navy colored suit, and with a January wedding date, the decor came together from there. With votive-lined tables and warm Merlot colored florals with rich greens and champagnes and a bit of sparkle among the art-lined walls of our venue, our cocktail hour and reception had a mix of simple and chic with a relaxed, dinner party fee. (With amazing live music of course!)

The Moments:

Our favorite moment really can’t be singularly described! It was the entire wedding weekend. From the rehearsal dinner at one of our favorite local spots — the fabulous Five Bar Knoxville, to having my priest from back home fly in to marry Cash & I, to dancing the night away at the reception and afterwards — having our families and friends all traveling from out-of-state and from all over the country in town and meeting for the first time was wonderful to be a part of! We loved celebrating with all of them- laughing and having a great time together!

The Couple Recommends:

I must say, we picked an incredible group of wedding professionals. I was amazed at how seamlessly they all worked together to make the day come to fruition the way it did — true perfection in our eyes! From the amazing artistry and vision of Tara our photographer, (the same for our cinematographers — Nathan and Spencer at Milestone-a every last minute addition by Cash and I!) to the fantastic execution of my design scheme and feel of the reception by Angie, the day was flawless. Bradford went above and beyond our expectations with catering. The dinner and especially the cocktail hour hor d’oeuvres they created just for us were a big hit. Sam and his amazing team captured my vision for the florals so perfectly — even helping with setup! Last but not least, The Downtown Band from Nashville, TN was unbelievable. From the ceremony music to the cocktail hour to the many hours on the dance floor, our guests were wowed (and dancing all night)! Justin and his band were incredibly entertaining- our friends and family are STILL talking about them — 2 months later! Cash and I are trying to find another excuse to hire them!
