Leslie and Jason are a match made in heaven – country-style. From Bloomington, Indiana, they love country music, which was the catalysis for meeting each other. Out with a friend to hear a country band and drink and dance the night away, Leslie encountered a tall, handsome guy with a twang (aka Jason). She shares, “We didn’t chat long, as my friend came to inform me we were going to a party with the band, which turned out to be at the tall, handsome guys house! We stayed awake until the morning hours, starting the beginning of our forever after.” Engaged and in Nashville for CMA week, Jason suggested a destination wedding in the city they love and visit frequently. Leslie googled venues, came across Cedarwood, and knew it was perfect for them. “There was not one picture I didn’t like and the reviews were amazing!”
Jason and Leslie’s wedding style was a combination of both their tastes – he loves modern industrial design and she loves rustic chic and farm decor. Navy was Jason’s masculine color choice to balance Leslie’s feminine touch and soft palette of cream, ivory and pops of peach and coral. We love the juxtaposition! Here’s their day through photos by the always amazing Ulmer Studios.
We love couples’ special touches that personalize their wedding. Leslie shares, “Our special touches include the table at the ceremony to honor Jason’s mom and dad who both passed away last year. On my bouquet I have two special pendants attached that remind me of Jason’s mom and dad. One is a Hawaiian flower that Brenda bought in Hawaii. Jason’s mom and I both shared the love of traveling. The other is a Guernsey cow pendant. Jason was raised on a dairy farm and his dad was passionate about his cows. During the ceremony we have decided to have Jason’s brothers walk down the aisle to represent his mom and dad. Another one of our special touches is that we will have wine from our local winery in Bloomington, Indiana!”
Congratulations Jason and Leslie! We hope your amazing wedding day sets the standard for your life together. Thanks Ulmer Studios for sharing your work.
