Rustic Chic Nashville wedding at Cedarwood by Anne Wolfenden Knight and Robin Wolfenden

I had to share the wedding we attending this weekend at Cedarwood in Nashville. I am a sucker for details and this mother/daughter duo really did an amazing job with all of the special touches. As guests walked up to the plantation, we were greeted with lemonade in mason jars and my favorite pink striped straws. I loved the oversized couch in the lawn, the tree swing, and the chandelier and mason jars hanging from the trees. The ceremony was out on the sprawling lawn and it was so sweet. Cocktail hour was in the barn and the entry was lined with gold mirrors and frames, there was a blue grass band playing, drinks were served in mason jars and the bar ingredients were written out on a window pane. There was also a cigar bar set up and the beer was arranged in the back of an old pick up truck with personalized koozies of course. As you entered dinner there was a table with all their family wedding photos with a moss A + J. Dinner was under strung lights and the tables had burlap runners with lanterns, flowers and mason jars. We danced the night away to a great band and the bride and groom exited to a sparkler path lit by the guests. The evening was picture perfect.
