Real Nashville Wedding: Camille + Jesse

August 25, 2010

Beautiful wedding, beautiful couple. Enjoy these images from Camille and Jesse’s wedding right here in Nashville.

WedCandy: What was the inspiration for your lovely wedding?

Camille: Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette….the mix of vintage decadence with a little bit of punk rock – perfect.

WC: How did you pick your colors?

C: The reception site was an event space that was a renovated car factory from the early 1900’s. There were dark wooden beams, industrial windows, a lot of dark, rich browns and dark steel; so I knew that I wanted to contrast it with light colors. I used every shade between pure white and light coral/pink. Ivories, beiges, faded vintage floral prints, etc… My maid of honor wore a vintage dress from the 40’s that was champagne (which looked beautiful on her brown skin).

WC: Is there anything you would change?

C: I would have had more flowers…but knowing me, there could never be enough fresh flowers. Haha.

WC: Who helped you pull it all off?

C: The Pink Monkey. They are the best kept secret in Nashville. I wanted my wedding to be completely unique, and I could not have done it without their creativity.

WC: What was your favorite detail?

C: The canvas bags that hung on every chair as gifts for our guests…and the place-cards, there were thirty different versions and they were HUGE! It’s hard to pick one detail when there were so many….

WC: Were you able to really enjoy the day?

C: Oh, yes! I’ll never forget it!

WC: Any advice for brides?

C: Nothing is worth distracting you from enjoying the day. I even kicked my high heels off at the alter because they were starting to distract me – it ended up being everyones favorite part of the ceremony! In fact, the right attitude can make the things that go “wrong” become some of your favorite memories.
