Drummin’ up Love: Nashville Wedding Venue



How could any girl resist a proposal from the man she loves (who happens to be a professional drummer) during a concert ‘on stage?’ We can feel the rush – Boone Daughdrill, member of the band “DecembeRadio” calls out to the love of his heart, Loren Denton, and presents her with the night’s performance drumsticks. Only these drumsticks repeat a very special question, “Will you marry me?”   Swoon………


After “I will” Loren began planning their “I do” at Cedarwood on October 17.  It all revolved around her wedding dress sash, a gorgeous vintage shade of mauve called Raisin. The goal for Loren and Boone’s wedding was an intimate modern-vintage wedding style with romantic-muted, yet rich color and the simplicity of minimal adornments.




We knew immediately that the perfect flower for Loren was a Cedarwood favorite rose called “Amnesia.” The color is a dusty soft mauve with champagne edges that has a timeless romantic look. The simplicity of using just one flower in Loren’s bouquet also adds a vintage vibe. Dress + bouquet =  style perfection in this (above) photo!







After a touching candlelight ceremony inside Cedarwood’s historic Yarbrough House (complete with performance by fellow “DecembeRadio” band members), guests feasted on a scrumptious champagne brunch by Chef Christopher’s Catering of Petite Fillet Mignon, quiche casserole, oven roasted potatoes, buttermilk biscuits with butter and preserves and fresh strawberries and cream. Yum!  Receptions tables were just as yummy with shimmering linens, vintage mercury glass and rose nosegay centerpieces.





Patty Cakes designed a simple and elegant cake for Loren and Boone’s wedding — ivory with “raisin” tinted embellishment. Boone’s groom’s cake had to be a drum with those oh so important drum sticks displayed along side.  We love grooms’ cakes that are personal tributes to a couple’s love story!

Loren and Boone, your inner beauty and love for each other inspires us. May butterflies take up permanent residence in your hearts!
