Splendid Summer Wedding : Candace and Ross

Photos by Ace Photography

There are some weddings that are full of happy people, festivity and merriment from start to finish, and Candace Hume and Ross Nichols’ August 8 Cedarwood wedding falls into this category. Candace and Ross live in Des Moines, Iowa (you’ll love the groom’s cake tribute to his home state!) and their Nashville wedding was a reunion of sorts for this Tennessee bride, her extended family and friends.

Candace looks ravishing in her A-line scalloped dress and simple feather hair accent – we love this streamlined-yet elegantly alluring look for outdoor summer weddings! Also  love, love, love the sassy  ‘something blue’ shoes!  When it’s time to get down, Candace opts for a chic cotton and crochet lace short  dress and bare feet! (top photo) Ross offers a little foot R&R on the dance floor!

Black and white attire and reception decor comes to life with vibrant flowers in hot summer colors. Every time I look at these photos by the fantastic Ace Photography, I think happy. Hope you will too!

These ceremony photos are among our all-time faves. Stunning summer scenery at Cedarwood!!

(Below) We told you it was cute! Ross is all “Iowa home-grown” just like the fresh picked corn and groom’s cake!

The life-loving group of friends celebrating with Candace and Ross know how to get down. Even the flower girl lets loose.   Late night pillow fight on the front porch… girls just want to have fun!

Thanks Ace Photography for sharing these images. Just what we needed to warm up the day! Congrats again Candace and Ross.

    Our family can’t tell you how much we appreciate your staff and how easy they made planning such an occasion! With the bride and groom living in another state, you kept things organized and easy for us, even working around their holiday visit to Tennessee and making time for a planning session to get things organized.

    We received so many warm compliments from the guests that day, from the beauty of the grounds to the elegance of the flowers and how smoothly things moved. As the mother of the bride, I can’t begin to tell you how much fun I had. I didn’t have a care in the world that day! We were able to relax and actually enjoy the wedding.

    I hope our other daughter chooses Cedarwood when she gets married. We’ve gotten spoiled to your superb service and don’t believe anyone could match it!
