We’re happy to welcome Mary Rosenbaum Photography back to WedLoft for another photography feature! Today Mary’s photos are from a Nashville rehearsal dinner.
Mary: The Oldacre Rehearsal Dinner inspiration came from the groom’s family wanting to give the guests a great taste of Nashville. It was the perfect beginning to a weekend of celebrating the bride Mary Diane and groom Hunter. The event was held at RUBY, which is an old chapel converted to an intimate and unique event space. The flowers reflected a masculine feel of green hydrangeas, pods, grasses and ivory roses. The linens commanded a bold look for grays, green and coppers in a open space of the old chapels trusses and large window. Custom napkin rings and hand-calligraphied place cards with the same design from the Dinner invitation continued the décor’s theme. Event design and coordination was by Big Events Wedding. Catering was done by Kristen Winston Catering.
Blue grass music from the The Zach White band entertained guests during cocktails on the covered patio on a rare cool night in August in Nashville. Guests enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvre of Mini BLT’s, Sweet Potato Biscuits with Country Ham, and Candied Bacon with Reserve Whiskey Sips. Cocktails were followed by a Southern Supper of Short Ribs, White Cheddar Grits, and Vegetables. During a dessert course of Chocolate Pots de Creme, Lemon Fantasy Tart, and Fresh Seasonal Berries, guests toasted and the bride and groom with laughter and happy tears.
