Weddings are events of beauty, warmth and wonder, always inspiring us with hope and new beginnings. When a couple infuses their style into the day, they connect with guests in a uniquely personal way. Jennifer Norsworthy and Drew Hale did this as well as any couple we’ve worked with. They are Southern born and raised, always up for adventure, love to have fun, love country music and are known to sing a tune or two. They love fresh green spaces and their May 15 wedding at Cedarwood was full of relaxed beauty, playful details, romantic southern charm, vintage chic and high style. How’s that for a recipe for country wedding perfection?
After Jennifer and Drew spoke their vows to each other in a touching garden ceremony adorned with spring Peonies, southern Hydrangea, English garden roses and wildflowers, they invited guests to the Cedarwood barn for the first phase of their celebration. The barn is a great space for cocktails and an opportunity to mix in a bit of rustic charm before dinner and dancing in the Cedarwood Pavilion. Love these detail shots in the barn!
Now to the ‘main’ reception via the front lawn and more photo ops. Love Jennifer on the rope swing!
Burlap runners, lanterns and a blend of mason jars and romantic flowers on reception tables are a favorite combination of ours for a high style country mood. That and a Tennessee smokehouse menu!
Patty Cakes wedding cupcakes were a perfect choice, and Jen and Drew got to have their ‘wedding anniversary’ cake too! Different designs designated the various cupcake flavors. We were even able to sneak some ‘Power Ts’ on a few for Drew.
A little boot scootin’ to some great live music and a special song by Jennifer!
Josh and Meg of Souder Photography hit big time with so many stunning photos of Jennifer and Drew’s chic country celebration (be sure to check out the first three posts!!!) Can’t wait to have Josh and Meg back again! They’re a hoot (southern expression for fun!)
Loved this day!
