The story of our wedding
Michael and I have been together for almost 7 years now. In 7 years we have made so many memories, met so many people and made SO many friends, on top of already having large families and large groups of friends... Know what that means-- HUGE wedding. Natually, because we LOVE to celebrate Life and all of our blessings with EVERYONE!
Our wedding was a BEAUTIFUL Winter mix on Industrial Elegance! Being a February wedding our biggest kicker was we wanted to have an ALL indoor Wedding & NOT have to flip the space from ceremony to reception, OR have it in the same area. 2nd issue-- we had 500 people on our guest list.. They say you lost so much percentage, well we didn't, as we knew we wouldnt, and had 475ish, in attendance.
There are very few venues in the Middle Tennessee Area that can even hold this many people in ONE setting, much less TWO separate ones-- in one location.
Then we found The Mill, PRAISE GOD.
We got married on the stairs with Geust downstairs as well as wrapped on teh balcony, WHICH WAS AMAZING, and hosted the reception upstairs in what they consider their LOFT area. IT was simply incredible.
The decor included draping, beautiful winter greenery, "dead" Wintery tree branches, tons of uplighting for effect, floral arangements, antique vehicles, OH and Everyone wore BLACK ( at least they were supposed to.
We decided to go super "SIMPLE" aka, super difficult and we pulled off the most incredible "Family Style" authentic Mexican dinner complete with Fajitas, & all the Fixings, Chips, Salsa, Queso, Sangria, and YOU GUESSED IT, PITCHERS of Margaritas! The best part of the whole wedding was this-- nobody had to stand in line to wait for food or drinks it was all served directly to the table by the most incredible Wait staff ever!! - DO THIS, your guests will love you even more than they already do! ( Nobody wants to stand in line or carry food, IN HEELS!!)
Our cakes and desert were BEAUTIFUL and DELICIOUS as well as the cookie towers.
My advice to any BRIDE.... ALWAYS have a band!! Nothing against the modern DJ, but a Band brings the PARTY!
All in all, this wedding was absolutely incredible and so memorable for not only us, but everyone who spent the time money and effort to attend and celebrate us. I can only believe the team we had to help us pull it together, and keep it organized-- (THANKS WEDDINGWIRE) is the only reason!
