Interview with the Bride…

Why did you choose your ceremony venue?

We live in Nashville TN, but we wanted to get married outside in our hometown. Phipps was the best option in our price range with the best rain plan.

Did you face any obstacles while planning your wedding?

It was hard to plan from Nashville. I had to do everything over email or phone and some vendors (not my photographer 🙂 ) were not used to communicating exclusively through these means. I had a hard time getting in contact with or getting answers from some of my vendors.

Did everything go as planned on your wedding day?

Yes. Besides my grandparants being a little late, everything went perfectly.

Your favorite wedding day moment…

My favorite moment was when our officiant asked us to look out at our friends and family during the ceremony. We have lived at least 500 miles from most of our old friends and relatives for about 4 years. During that time, we made other close friends in Nashville. In that moment, we got to appreciate how much love and support we have from all of our friends and family that are normally scattered across America. For one day, all of our loved ones were in one place.
