The NotWedding Part 1: Not Your Typical Rustic Wedding, Ideas from Nashville Vendors

Monday, July 28, 2014

Last month, Jenn and I headed to The Nashville NotWedding, a faux wedding designed to showcase real wedding ideas.   As one of our favorite bridal event, this big fake wedding did not disappoint.  The theme at this year's alternative bridal show was "not your typical rustic wedding."  The participating vendors, all listed below, took the theme and the inspiration board and created something truly magical to showcase their creativity and to give couples a myriad of ideas for their big day.

The event started with the creation of a save the date, announcing the big day, then an engagement session with a lucky couple.  The night before the wedding event, the couple and vendors were invited to a rehearsal dinner at Edgehill Village Cafe (which was delicious!).  The ceremony and reception took place the following night, both held at the Cannery.  We were treated to a beautiful, vow renewal ceremony followed by a full reception, with dinner, cake, ice cream and dancing!

Enjoy the pre-event and ceremony photos below and check back tomorrow for images from the reception.
