With gorgeous wildflowers and a collection of heartfelt family heirlooms, Elizabeth and James’ vintage Southern garden wedding was a stylish and sentimental celebration. Streetlight Republic beautifully captured both the charming location of Belle Meade Plantation and the couple’s eminent love for one another.
The Couple: Elizabeth and James
The Wedding: Belle Meade Plantation, Nashville, TN
The Inspiration: We wanted our wedding to be a balance of vintage elegance and Southern comfort. We found a gorgeous historical location with a garden for the ceremony and a carriage house for the reception. While the location itself was a beautiful backdrop, the garden theme was continued throughout the venue by the incredibly talented florist, who arranged bouquets of various wildflowers and centerpieces of lanterns surrounded by honeysuckle. The decor involved sentiments and heirlooms, such as lockets, a memorial table of loved ones, and picture frames of ourselves growing up and together.
