Melissa and Pete were married this past December in Nashville, TN surrounded by close friends and family in true southern style. Tec and Chelsea Petaja are actually good friends of the bride and groom, so it was no surprise to hear Tec photographed the wedding and Chelsea created so many of the lovely details you see below. It’s hard for me to resist any wedding with a bit of vintage charm to it, but when I heard they pulled it off for only $4,000 it definitely became an instant favorite in my book…
Melissa actually found her dress on Once Wed(something I always love to hear!). Some of you might not even know this, but Once Wed is also a used wedding dress listing service. To search for a certain dress, click here.
Melissa and her bridesmaids created all the lovely bridesmaid bouquet and A Village Flower in Nashville created the bridal bouquet. Baby’s breath is always branded as filler flower, but I absolutely love it all bunched together in the image above.
You might remember a seeing a certain crafting party over on Oh My Deer where everyone got together to create the button boutonnieres above.
Chelsea created all the paper goods including the programs and invitations featured above…
Part II of Melissa and Pete’s wedding is coming up next…

Featured Unique Elopement in Spain
Elopements have this unique ability to allow a couple to shake off the reigns of tradition and do whatever suits them best. In this event, captured by Meghan Kay Sadler, we love how the couple combined their elopement with their honeymoon, travelling through Spain without any particular plans, and enjoying it all the way.
