Sarah + John wanted to throw a true Southern hospitality wedding. They choose the Historic Cedarwood in Nashville, Tennessee as their location and their day was full of family + lots of antique decor. I love that Sarah + John wanted their guests to feel like they were at a “relaxed, Southern garden party.” Thanks to Ulmer Studios for the photos and congrats to Sarah + John!

Probably it would have to be either hiking through the chigger-filled fields in our wedding clothes for some awesome photographs with Josh & Amber of Ulmer Studios, or the fact that it was 67 degrees as the high temperature on our wedding day (June 1st)! We had to pull out the heat lamps at the reception!
The ladies at Historic Cedarwood and the amazing photographers at Ulmer Studios were the most personable and wonderful people to work with; they made the planning so easy, and totally delivered way more than we ever could imagine! We were so peaceful through the planning process, that when it came to our big day, we couldn’t have been more relaxed and ready to get “the show on the road!!”
When we first started planning our wedding, I went in with the mind-set of "how can I save my parents money?" instead of "what is my dream wedding?" After my parents and my (now) husband had a talk with me, we realized it was better to think big and see how to make those big thoughts into reality. It is completely possible!!
