We’re in glam, rustic heaven today with Chelsea and Darryl’s beautiful wedding just outside of Nashville! We absolutely love how they paired the elegance of their decor and attire with the natural venue. Chelsea’s wedding dress from Glitz Nashville combined with her stunning makeup from the team at Harper & Olive is the definition of Pinterest-worthy! Our favorite parts though are the sweet, personal moments between this family! Get ready to have your heart melted below!
How did you meet?
Chelsea: “We met through my husband’s fire chief.”
When did you know you were falling in love?
“Within a month!”
What is your favorite quality in your husband?
“His ability to make me smile! He’s my very best friend!!”
Did you have a specific theme or design inspiration for your big day?
“I wanted to keep things simple given we were getting married in a barn, but I also wanted to incorporate the perfect amount of elegance and chicness.”
How about your dress or attire?
“I purchased my mermaid dress from Glitz Nashville. We had an amazing experience! It was probably the 6th dress I tried on. Instantly I knew it was the one, and I was done looking!”
What traditions did you incorporate?
“We did wait until the first look to see each other. We shared a traditional first dance and ceremony. We did the whole cheesy cut the cake pictures, he threw the garter, and I had bouquet toss with all the single ladies.”
What was the most memorable moment?
“I would say when we had our first look, followed by a first look with our children and presented them with wedding gifts. A pearl necklace for Makyna and a ring for Drew.”
What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it?
“‘The Keeper of the Stars’ by Tracy Byrd. We spent hours listening to music and laughing on Youtube, and we decided on this one!”
Tell us about your grand exit!
“We had the most magical sparkler exit! Despite having to rearrange the entire ceremony hours before it took place, the rain stopped just in time to capture some amazing images and have our send off!”
Best wishes Chelsea & Darryl!
