Italian Influenced Style : Kyle+Brandon


Photos by Don Wright Designs

We can think of no better way to spend a warm June day than wandering through the Italian countryside, enjoying summer gardens and tranquil meals overlooking pastoral hillside views.   And if you are of Italian heritage and happen to live in Tennessee, to spend a warm June day celebrating love, family,  food, wine and music at Cedarwood.  Especially a day dedicated to marriage!

Perhaps its the Italian influence, but Kyle Callea and Brandon Dempsey know passion and  celebration. Kyle’s parents Salvatore (Sam) and Christie Callea made sure their daughter’s June 19 Cedarwood wedding was full of fun and southern hospitality with Italian influences, of course!

Reminiscent of a Tuscan summer, we loved Kyle’s choice of green, ivory and butter-cream florals with black attire.  Both refreshing and dramatic, these colors surrounded by verdant Cedarwood scenery, was a perfect pairing. Kyle and Brandon’s wedding photographer, Don Wright Designs, shared lots of lovely romantic poses around the property, and of this couple’s oh so passionate ceremony embrace as husband and wife!





There was lots of  lively, touching and personal moments of the night, and we asked mother of the bride, Christie Callea what memories shine brightest. Besides being a very warm June day, here they are:

-LED rings passed out for dancing after dark.. everyone loved them!
-The romantic feel of the night.
-The Italian influence…dancing the Tarantella: a traditional southern Italian folk dance.
-The Father of the bride’s heartfelt story leading up the the wedding toast of how our  lives  has been affected by “the beach.” His parents met at the beach.. we met at the beach.. numerous beach vacations, we all went together to Aruba on 2009 and Brandon proposed to Kyle there on the beach. Then he concluded the toast by wishing Kyle and Brandon many memorable future walks on the beach. Later , we gave Kyle a framed photo of her at age two and her dad the first time we took her to the beach – very sweet!



Thanks to Don Wright Designs for sharing his images!  Kyle and Brandon, may you always say, io e te per sempre – you and me for ever!
