Joy Thigpen, Meagan, and I recently ventured up to Nashville to hang with Tec Petaja and his lovely wife, Chelsea. Tec found this amazing little B & B 45 minutes outside of Nashville, Watermelon Moon Farm, and the minute we saw the baby goats knew it would be the perfect spot to create and play for the day.
We really loved the idea of a farm to table wedding. Something very low key and organic. All the flowers for this story were simple and gathered from the farm (and the neighbors–thank you!). And we hope the dinner to follow would be a family style feast that would nourish the soul…
