Barbie and Scott both grew up in small towns, and although they live and work near Washington, DC, their hearts are in the country. Barbie says, “Our preferred happy hour spot is on the deck of our favorite winery, overlooking the Virginia mountainside. Our home is filled with objects and atmosphere that juxtapose modern touches with a vintage country feel, and we wanted the same for our wedding. We chose Cedarwood in Nashville to help us create our dream wedding reflecting our sense of style – an intimate and personal elopement ceremony with our own vows.”
As a singer/songwriter, Nashville also has an allure for Scott and Barbie whose ideal version of their wedding included live music of a heartfelt lyric and acoustic guitar; a reception designed around the theme of a luxurious picnic for two; decorative touches like vintage treasures; reclaimed wood, vintage china, vibrant orange and soft ivory flowers; and a historic venue that exudes romance and country charm. Barbie says, “We couldn’t imagine a more idyllic setting than Cedarwood, nestled in the pastoral landscape of Nashville, Tennessee. We chose Nashville for our wedding, because it was where we took our first vacation together, and it already held special memories for us. We eloped so that the day was just ours, with no distractions, no duties but to each other. Of course, it was still important for us to choose a romantic setting in the country.” We are so glad Barbie and Scott chose Cedarwood and the talented Krystal Mann of Life Strings Photography to document their tranquil farm wedding at Cedarwood.
