Jessica Lorren and Jessica Sloane recently worked together on Kimberly and Justin’s Nashville wedding, and isn’t it a beauty? I love all the understated botanical details up against the gorgeous Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. More details below from their designer and stylist, Jessica Sloane

“This gorgeous wedding was a dream to work on. The LA couple wanted to get married in Kimberly’s hometown of Nashville. When I first met with Kimberly she explained that they wanted their wedding day to look and feel like a garden dinner party. Guests received a hand-calligraphied invitation with botanical liner to set the stage for the evening. Their wedding took place on a sunny fall day with all of their close friends and family gathered together at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens.

Upon arrival, the women were served champagne and truffles in the drawing room of the Museum of Art, a 1920’s Georgian-style mansion. The men mingled around the Reflection Pool sipping on bourbon and telling stories about the groom. Guests wrote notes to Kimberly and Justin in “The Green Florilegium,” a book full of old botanical prints. When it was time for the ceremony, everyone processed together to the boxwood gardens and took their seats. The sun was setting as Kimberly and Justin took their vows and the bridal party joined around them for a moment of blessings. It was a magical ceremony, followed by a joyful celebration. Cocktails were served on the Terrace and in the Loggia, under a grand chandelier by the light artist Bruce Munro.

Guests dinned on a delicious southern-style dinner at tables set with heirloom silver containers filled with herbs, ferns, fruits and fall blooms. Everyone danced the night away to Super T, who literally came out in a Superman outfit marked with a big letter T! It was definitely a night to remember!”

Hi ladies – the shoes were purchased at Dillards on sale last year. And the dress was purchased at Saks. And the name of the book that was the guest book is in the text that I wrote above. Hope that helps!

Does anyone know the style name of the bride’s dress? The link above says it is “unforgettable” but the dress doesn’t show up in any other searches when using that name. Thank you!

Hi ladies,

I am bride-to-be And completely head over heels in love with this dress. Could anyone tell me if and where it is still available?

Thanks so much!

annie | Reply

Did a little googling and the blush Reem Acra dress is actually from the Resort 2013 Pre-Spring collection. A white version is in the Fall 2013 Bridal collection. Not sure the style name, but definitely not “Unforgettable”.

The guest book is “The Green Florilegium,” which is a book of botanical illustrations and can be purchased at bookstores or Amazon.com
