Music City Magnificent :: Claudia+Bill


Photos by Ace Photography

Magnificent doesn’t seem to be a powerful enough adjective to describe the stunning September 3 wedding of Claudia and Bill.   Claudia and Bill are among Tennessee’s young political movers and shakers, and met while Bill was working for the state’s governor and Claudia for a state congressman. Their careers and passions were common ground for falling in love with each other. Claudia and Bill are huge Nashville music fans and they wanted their wedding to celebrate local culture with a high energy, yet relaxed ‘music city’ vibe. In addition to having the ceremony and reception on our historic farm,  the Cedarwood design team used “burlap and bling” to represent the merger of rustic and beautiful, relaxed and classy. Creative seating assignments and paper goods was important to Claudia and Bill, and Designs in Paper created table cards representing the concerts they saw together. Table assignment cards were concert tickets, and we repeated their custom invitation logo throughout event decor. A commitment to local sourcing, including Nashville brewed Yazoo beer, gave guests a taste of the city’s finest. The atmosphere was a fusion of sophisticated fun with lots of music and dancing and enchanting romance with cozy spaces and candlelight.  Enjoy Part 1 of their magnificent wedding through these photos by Ace Photography.
