Get ready for black and white inspiration for days, a cozy reception set up, and one of the sweetest first looks we’ve ever seen! Brittany and Drew’s Estate at Cherokee Dock wedding has us melting over every amazing photograph Cannon Weddings captured. We’re obsessed with Brittany’s two bridal looks — a classic Hayley Paige gown and a more lively dress from Wedding Angels Bridal for dancing all night at the reception. If you’re into elegantly neutral colors and all the soft, home-y vibes, you’ll definitely want to see how Gather and Heart Event Co set up the couple’s reception decor. We can’t wait for you to get inspired by rentals from Please be Seated and Liberty Party Rental, gorgeous florals by Blooming Hites, a jaw-dropping tier’d cookie cake by Nashville Sweets, and so much more from Brittany and Drew’s Estate at Cherokee Dock wedding!
Brittany & Drew
My amazing parents, in-laws, brother, brother-in-laws, bridesmaids, and groomsmen all wrote letters to me to read before walking down the aisle. I literally cried my eyes out on some and laughed out of my chair on others. They are all my people and I’m so blessed, we are so blessed to have all of them in our lives. I love each and every one of them.
The couple’s most memorable part of the day: Our first look. Having that moment, just us, was something we will never forget. It allowed us to take in a moment in time just for us. Our first look photos were photos I’ll cherish forever and our video gave me all the feels!
Our relationships with our family and friends are very important to us. So, when picking out the venue, we wanted more of a weekend experience with the people we love. Our venue gave us that and more, since we were able to have our immediate family and wedding party all stay on the property all 4th of July weekend for the event. The Estate at Cherokee Dock has so many options so we were able to have the Rehearsal dinner and wedding at the same venue but feel like a completely different space. Not to mention, it’s a gorgeous venue with an amazing team.
I wanted something classic and timeless to wear. I actually overdress for everything, but my gown had no bearing or lace at all. It was unexpected and modern. I’m obsessed with Kendra Scott jewelry and own a lot of it! I loved my jewelry choices because I’ll wear them again and again! I also LOVED my shoes, which were open toe cobalt blue, as my something blue. My husband wrote a sweet note on them.
We wanted something that described us. We are home bodies and we had that feeling with each other. We felt and feel like we are home when we are with the other. Home is not a place but a person to us. We wanted to bring that into the wedding day. We chose to decorate with materials you build a home out of. We used light bulbs as vases and our cake topper, concrete blocks as center pieces, mini houses to hold place cards, we did family style for dinner with gourmet southern food, our logo that I designed was a home symbol, our arch was customer built as a house outline and so much more, but you get the picture.
I wanted a very neutral, modern look. So we used lots of golds, black, tans, and grays. I wanted the venue and decor to be a statement, but elegant.
My second gown was a tighter fit and more fun. It was the perfect gown to wear while Shaking my booty on the dance floor with my new hubby!
