Rain Plan

Modern White Wedding in Franklin, TN | April 22nd

August 15, 2018

They say it’s good luck to rain on your wedding day. And if that’s the case, Alyssa and Thomas are off to a great start. This couple truly embraced the rain in the best way possible by dancing the night away in our lush garden and cuddling up under a clear umbrella for some incredible photos from Janelle Elise Photography.


Alyssa + Thomas’ Rainy Day Romance 


“I wanted my wife to a have a venue where everything was beautiful, close together, and had a staff that took care of everything for her. CJ’s met and exceeded all our expectations on all fronts. Jennifer and her team planned and executed every single detail we discussed and made our wedding day 100% stress-free. We had to deal with rain, which would have destroyed our plans at any other venue. CJ’s was prepared and we didn’t lift a finger as they converted our open-air wedding into a beautiful, picture-perfect covered one.” – Thomas Dulin, Groom

Alyssa wore the Elysia dress by Hayley Paige which looked absolutely stunning paired with her bridesmaids in BHLDN gowns. Every detail of the wedding was thoughtful from the lush floral, to the clean lines of the acrylic ghost chairs draped with golden “bride” + “groom” chair signs. This wedding exudes lush, modern, garden April showers with a sophisticated Nashville edge.

“Their first dance was written for them (by Drew Holcomb) and performed for the first time at their wedding as the rain fell on the pavilion – so romantic!” – Jennifer Rhem, Planner at CJs Off the Square
