Lane and Ryan tied the knot on Saturday, September 28th, 2013 at the beautiful Scarritt Bennett church in downtown Nashville. Joshua Gull Photography did a wonderful job capturing all of the details from this classic, yet slightly rustic themed wedding, and we are so excited that we are finally able to share all of them with you.

programLane and her bridesmaids started the day getting pampered as Amy Lynn Larwig did all of the girls’ hair and makeup in a suite at the Holiday Inn. Once the girls finished getting beautified, they headed over in a limo bus to Scarritt Bennett where they met with the photographer to take some bridal party photos. After Lane and her bridesmaids had some girl time, Ryan and his groomsmen arrived at the church, where Lane and Ryan had their “first look” photos taken before the rest of the wedding party joined in for some group shots. Scarritt Bennett was the perfect backdrop for these photos to be taken, and they could not have turned out more beautifully.

Ryan looked just as handsome as he admired Lane walking down the aisle sporting a boutonniere with a cluster of mini rose, berries and greens. Lane and Ryan’s family and friends watched in awe as they witnessed the couple say “I Do,” before recessing out of the church as the College Grove Strings played the “Wedding March.” Once the ceremony ended, Lane and Ryan remained at the church with their families to get a few family photos taken, while the rest of their guests headed over to the Tulip Grove Mansion where the cocktail hour and reception were held.

In addition to these delectable drinks, Chef’s Market provided savory green tea cones with curried chicken salad, and petite fried green tomatoes with jalapeno pimiento cheese for guests to enjoy before the reception started. Lane and Matt kicked off the reception as they made their grand entrance as husband and wife, before having their first dance to James Taylor’s, “How Sweet It Is.” More dancing followed as guests were welcomed on to the dance floor as the Nick Carver Band played some classic mo-town songs as well as some of today’s hits.

Lane and Matt took a break from the dance floor to cut into their delicious wedding cake, which was beautifully created by Dulce Desserts. Chef’s Market also mirrored the couples rustic theme of champagnes, peaches and berries, by providing a custom designed menu, complete with foods that were favorites of Lane, Ryan, and their families. Some items off the menu included sweet potato biscuits, cheese straw encrusted fried chicken breast, and even Jack Daniels braised boneless beef ribs. This sweet southern vibe was not only seen amongst the food choices, but the drinks as well. An apothecary jar beverage table was set up where peach and rosemary lemonade, tango mint fruit tea, and lemon water were only several of the delicious options that guests could choose from.

After the bouquet toss, Lane and Ryan made their grand exit in a limo, as family and friends of the couple waved sparklers to send them off on their journey together as husband and wife. Lane and Ryan, thank you so much for letting us be a part of your big day! The two of you are such a beautiful couple, and we wish you nothing but the best!
