{Real DIY Nashville Wedding} Wendy & Ramey

Since summer unofficially ended last weekend, I'm excited to jump into Fall weddings, starting with this pretty little red & black September gem.  From invitations to card box to wine favors, the Bride crafted plenty of DIY details to admire.  My very favorite detail?  The Bride's very original, very cute party nail!!  Joe Hendricks Photography was on hand to capture this beauty:   

The fun-loving couple, Wendy & Ramey, met in the military while they were training for a half-marathon.  They started dating & things were set in motion when Ramey proposed to Wendy on romantic New Year's Eve.  They settled on an early September wedding date & decided to create a cool red & black wedding.  The couple made their simple, beautiful red & black pocket wedding invitation to set the tone.

Wendy & Ramey tied the knot in an intimate, outdoor ceremony at Cheekwood Botanical Garden, a lush, beautiful space accented by a large exhibit of colorful glass-blown artwork.  A coordinating, DIY red & black wedding program guided the guests through the ceremony.  The Bride wore white but stayed true to her red & black color scheme with fun red heels & dramatic black lace wrapped around her full, white bouquet of hydrangeas, roses & calla lilies.  As a sweet surprise to her Groom, the Bride wrote "I Do" on her ring finger, the ultimate party nail for a wedding!

The party continued at The Standard Nashville with more DIY, personalized details starting with escort cards made of white lace, red ribbon & white paper overlaid on black tented cards to direct guests to their tables.  The reception tables were named after the couple's favorite football teams & their beloved pets.  Each table had a black linen, a black & white damask runner & an arrangement of red roses & white flowers in a sleek, black vase.  The three-tiered, round white wedding cake featured red ribbons, red & white roses & a sparkly monogram topper.  The Groom's cake wasn't quite as elegant but it was a cute nod to the Groom's favorite football team, Arkansas Razorbacks.  When the fun party came to a close, the lucky guests took home a favor of bottled homemade wine decorated with a DIY red & black label.

Congratulations, Wendy & Ramey!
