One of Carolyn and Kyle’s first serious dates was a trip together to Nashville. Needless to say, that trip went well, because a few years later, they hosted their destination wedding in Nashville to celebrate with all of their very favorite people! They enlisted The Gifford Collective to plan their big day at ONE Cannery Row —a historic venue in the city. Florists Gradient & Hue added romance to the industrial space with greenery dripping from the huge wood chandeliers and white and dusty peach arrangements. Paper goods were by Darby Cards with calligraphy by White Ink Calligraphy and the cake was by Baked in Nashville. Lucky for us, Lindsay Campbell Photography was on hand to capture all the love in ‘Music City’ in these gorgeous images.
from the photography: Carolyn and Kyle are the type of people who instantly connect with pretty much everyone they meet. They each have the most contagious smiles. The most genuine care for others. The most positive manner of speaking. When you’re with Carolyn and Kyle, they are focused on you. Present, engaged, joyful, thoughtful, and so in love with each other. They never stop grinning, and they didn’t stop grinning at each other their entire wedding day.
ONE is a historic, industrial space on Cannery Row in Nashville, and it was the perfect place for Carolyn and Kyle to celebrate their wedding. After a teary, emotional ceremony surrounded by exposed brick and lush florals, guests enjoyed views of the Nashville skyline during cocktail hour as ONE was transformed into the perfect space to eat, drink, and dance the night away. There were heartfelt speeches and romantic dances, and Carolyn and Kyle laughed and cried and took the time to thoughtfully greet each of their guests. Always grinning, and always hand-in-hand.
But their favorite part of the day was their send-off: “At the end of the night, (the MC) encouraged all the guests to come in for a group hug. Instead of dispersing, though, our guests stayed in the group hug formation and sang along with ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole (“Izzy”). So there we were, standing in a circle of our dearest friends and loved ones, newly married, feeling so much love and hope and joy radiated toward us as we all sang and swayed. Truly unforgettable!”
