Elegant Clear-Top Tent Real Wedding

While we will always love an outdoor wedding, we know that it’s not always practical. Whether you’re limited by location or weather, a tented reception can always be a good option. In Anna and Adam’s case, their clear-top tent makes for a gorgeous reception venue, bringing in the beauty of the natural setting while keeping guests comfortable all night long. Of course, that wasn’t the only reason this wedding was beautiful. With Once Wed Premium Vendors Jessica Sloane Events and Vintage Florals at the helm of the decor, the details created a stunning, personalized event, including a luxurious color palette, letters to each of their guests, and an amazing floral chandelier.

Read on for more from the event designer, Jessica Sloane:
“What stood out to me most about Anna and Adam and their family was how kind and thoughtful they all were. Their intentionality showed in the details of their wedding. Shades of red were complemented by the simple gold accents, while Anna’s bridesmaids shined in their beaded gowns. The intimate ceremony was held in the stunning Church of the Assumption in Nashville and the reception was at Cheekwood Botanical Garden’s Museum of Art and Swan Lawn. The grounds at Cheekwood inspired the natural arrangements with pops of burgundy and sprawling branches. It was a night to remember!”

Nomadic Love: Wedding Dress Trends from Rue De Seine

Pulling together all of the individual pieces for your wedding can be a challenge, especially when you’re wanting a cohesive design that is representative of you and what you love. We feel that a wedding design needs to be reflective of its environment, which is why we absolutely love the new wedding dress collection from Rue De Seine, called “Nomadic Love.”

Rue De Seine tells us, “Our latest collection is inspired by travel, different cultures and love’s journey. The collection features beautiful bold laces, textures and hand beading that reflect diverse parts of the world. Each gown is romantic, effortless and embodies the bohemian nature of our brides.”

The designer looks at bridal fashion from a different point of view, following current trends and high-end fashion, and filtering these ideas through their love for travel. Rue De Seine is inspired by nomadic tribes and, of course, their own brides planning weddings world-wide, influenced by nature.

For a behind-the-scenes look at Rue De Seine and how their gowns come together, follow them on Instagram. Visit here to find Rue De Seine in a boutique near you.

Below are some great ideas to incorporate into your own look and find more inspiration here:
