Now that wedding season 2014 is in full swing, isn't it prime time to look at some pretty KDE weddings?! I'm starting off this series of real weddings with Alexa and Adam's gorgeous Steel Magnolias-influenced pink garden-esque wedding held at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.
Alexa and Adam were married August 31, 2013 at the Schermerhorn. Elements composing the design decor included swags of eucalyptus, lush garden roses, long satin ribbons, and a crown motif (to echo the couple's new last name: King!).
The ceremony decor was dripping with candles, rose petals, and an altar of stunning heights of florals. Adding to the flowers, of course, was the natural beauty and architecture of the Symphony Center. I die over all that marble and those chandeliers!
We surprised the bride and groom with a children's choir, which performed "Oh Happy Day!" immediately after the First Kiss. For pediatrician bride Alexa, it was a delightful surprise!
Passed strawberry lemonades greeted guests as they arrived for the ceremony. Cocktail hour included more passed treats, including a Pimms Cup signature drink and Texas-inspired hors d'ouevres to pay homage to the groom's heritage. The whole day incorporated a mixture of Texas and Canadian traditions to honor the families of the bride and groom!
The head table was the central focus of the reception with its long feasting table with candelabras, garlands, and crystals galore.
The three-tiered wedding cake was an absolute masterpiece, created by Dulce Desserts. Isn't that crown topper just divine?! After they cut that cake, we rolled out another surprise for the groom: A Steel Magnolias-esque armadillo groom's cake!
The night ended with a silver and pink tambourine-shaking exit as the couple made their way to their vintage convertible!
