California Shabby Chic :: Nina+Andrew

Photos by She He We Photography

We adore west coast couples — their sense of style, passion and laid back camaraderie.  Nina and Andrew‘s wedding is definitely in the Cedarwood Hall of Fame, not only for this gorgeous couple’s love story and beautiful wedding styling, but also for how they chose Cedarwood as their venue and handled a random act of mother nature on their wedding day.  Let’s start with their story.  Nina and Andrew met ten years ago in Nina’s home town of Danville, California.  At the time, Nina worked as an ER nurse at a large trauma center in northern California and Andrew as a police officer for the city of Oakland. Over the years their love grew strong and deep, and they also founded a marketing company together. Expanding their business across the country, Nashville developed into one of their largest hubs and introduced them to the charms of the southern countryside.

When Nina and Andrew began looking for a wedding venue, they knew they wanted their family and friends to experience Nashville. They discovered our historic farm estate online and Nina booked Cedarwood for their June 22 “Shabby Chic” dream wedding before she actually saw the property first-hand. Thanks for that vote of confidence!  Nina and Andrew enlisted the talented duo of  She He We Photography to document their wedding day story, and we think they did so beautifully!  Enjoy these gorgeous images, including a bit of post-ceremony excitement courtesy of an unexpected thirty minute rain shower (despite a zero percent chance of rain forecast!)  It’s times like these that show the grit of great people, and we’ll let She He We share the ‘rest of the story.’

From She He We, “Nina and Andrew hail from Cal­i­for­nia and chose Nashville for their des­ti­na­tion wed­ding.  These two may be the most gen­er­ous and wel­com­ing cou­ple we have had the priv­i­lege of work­ing with in a while.  Their gen­uine love for peo­ple and zeal for life is infec­tious.  Cedar­wood and the staff were absolutely amaz­ing.  How do I know this…We expe­ri­enced it! The cer­e­mony and recep­tion site (al fresco on the garden terrace) were dec­o­rated per­fectly with every detail in place.  Min­utes after the cer­e­mony, as guest’s were hav­ing their cock­tail hour in the barn, A tor­ren­tial down pour of rain hit.  Holy Moly…You would expect chaos and freak­ing out by  guests and staff…Not the case, Cedar­wood quickly re-purposed the pavilion entertainment lounge area as the new din­ning area.  We expected Nina to lose it since she had spent months plan­ning every detail but she had the best atti­tude.  She said, “Now we can just dance in the rain”  Obvi­ously these two care about what mat­ters most, friends and fam­ily. Enjoy!!”
