Summer Garden Wedding with Elegance and Whimsy | June 9
“Our experience with CJ’s was perfect from the first time we took our tour to the end of our wedding night. All the staff are incredibly personable and willing to take the time to work with you and answer your questions. Our planner was so patient through the whole process, with all the changes I wanted and last minute questions. Our wedding day could literally not have been any more perfect!” – Kristina & Stephen
Kristina and Stephen’s Whimsical Destination Wedding in Nashville with shades of Dusty Rose, Peach, and Thistle Blue
When Kristina and Stephen tied the knot on this lovely summer day, the garden at CJ’s Off the Square was in full bloom! The couple traveled from Bowling Green, Kentucky to have their dreamy destination wedding with an emphasis on elegance and whimsy here in our lovely town of Franklin. With lots of fabulous little touches and flowers aplenty, we couldn’t be more proud of the way that their special day turned out.
With Kristina in one of the most fabulous Maggie Sottero gowns we’ve ever seen and Stephen dawning his alumni cufflinks, this lovely pair had the most adorable first look! You could sense their excitement as they stood back to back and slowly turned around to catch a glimpse of one another. We truly adore the love between them!
Simple touches meant everything for this elegant-yet-ethereal garden wedding! Guests sipped on cucumber mint water while adding their names to the guest book. The most beautiful succulent arrangements garnished every table in sight, greenery was lush throughout the garden, and gold finishing touches brought everything together. At the end of the night, guests took home adorable skeleton key bottle openers for a fun play on the new couple’s last name: Locke.
Kristina was walked down the aisle by both parents as Stephen stood breathless at the altar, ready to marry the love of his life! A short ceremony joined the two as one and it couldn’t have been more beautiful!
After the lovely garden ceremony, guests and newlyweds let down their hair and enjoyed their beautiful wedding cake, group dances, and nostalgia. Kristina and Stephen were sent on their way by a line of sparklers that shot through the air like the electricity in their kiss! We truly enjoyed being a part of their magical day.
