Southern Nashville Wedding
Are you wedding planning now for a fall 2011 wedding? We have lots of inspiration for you in this wedding showcase! This past fall, I attended the wedding of my friends Austin and Jenni at historic Cedarwood in Nashville, Tennessee. Jenni looked absolutely stunning in her Alvina Valenta dress from Panache in Beverly Hills, California. I knew immediately that it would be a wedding I shared on Pizzazzerie as it had lots of little touches that made it extra special from the southern venue to the handmade favors.
Guests were greeted with delicious apple cider while mixing and mingling prior to the ceremony. Following the ceremony, cocktails were served and guests found their escort cards. Her dad cut custom fall leaves and her mom hand wrote each of the guests’ names for the escort cards. Dancing and a fun photo booth made for a night full of laughs and hugs!
Guests were treated to fabulous favors (we have the recipe) so keep reading!
Favors: DIY Details
With the help of her family and friends, Jenni and Austin made the favors! Custom CDs were given with the couple’s favorite songs complete with a cartoon of the bride and groom drawn by Jenni’s step-mom. Next came deliciously sweet mini bite-sized smores! Chris and I were literally fighting over them, they are that good! WE HAVE THE RECIPE FOR YOU!
