carrie & mike

al fresco garden dinner party


New York City dwellers Carrie & Mike chose to be married in their favorite Southern city:  Nashville. Hailing from rural Alabama and just outside of Philadelphia, PA, the couple wanted a centralized location to host their wedding for their out-of-town guest list. Cheekwood Botanical Gardens fit the bill for Carrie's "modern al fresco garden dinner party" vision. We worked closely together for 15 months piecing together the look and details for her elegant, organic fete -- bringing in rental topiaries and ficus trees, a favorite photographer from Birmingham, and interior-designer-turned-floral-artist Amanda Jerkins to make it all come to life.
