Music City Love :: Ashley+Steve

Photos by Ace Photography

Ashley and Steve are both attorneys in Cincinnati, Ohio, and met while working at the same law firm. Although their professions require them to deal with serious issues, they are really self-proclaimed ‘kids in love’ when together, spending most of their time trying to make each other laugh, being silly and playful.  Ashley told us that no one has made her feel as special and as loved as Steve and that he never misses an opportunity to say “I love you.”  SWEEEEEEET! Steve won our hearts right away!  As huge Country Music fans, Steve and Ashley’s favorite get away city is Nashville, so they decided to get married on June 6, in conjunction with the CMA Music Festival (Country Music Association’s annual star-power show.)  Designs in Paper created the most spot-on-perfect music-themed wedding invitation in the shape of  a ‘record’ inviting guests to “Please join us as we become a duet”  with ‘tickets’ for the RSVP.  Following in harmony, a ‘gold record’ poster was signed by guests in lieu of a guest book. 

Ashley and Steve wanted an intimate, relaxed wedding, but a setting that was romantic and sophisticated as well. They felt Cedarwood has the glamorous, country feel they wanted, and told us they had confidence in our design team to create a celebration full of beautiful details that they didn’t have time to handle. Incorporating their love of country music, some of their favorite bluegrass and country songs were performed by Jace Aaron Entertainment for the ceremony and reception.  We love a bluegrass rendition of Wagner’s Bridal Chorus. So country chic! We had a great time styling Ashley and Steve’s Music City Fete. Ashley’s mother put together adorable lace and fabric gift baskets full of Tennessee based treats, including home-made peach jam and products from Nashville icon Loveless Cafe.  Ace Photography documented Ashley and Steve’s wedding and we are impressed with the photos of Ashley and Steve in such a wide variety of Cedarwood settings. Of course, we love the great detail shots too! Enjoy.

    We absolutely loved every detail of our Cedarwood wedding. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue or team on our big day. Linda, Erika, and the design team delivered what we could never even dream, and Ace Photography captured every beautiful moment. We will cherish these memories for the rest of our lives.
