Yeah! Summer is officially here (well, it’s not techinically June 21 but close enough for us!). This time of year, Team Enchanted is busy, busy, busy creating wedding flowers for our beautiful brides. Many embrace a long standing trend in summer weddings – a bright and colorful bridal bouquet. Today we are sharing some favorite inspiration from past weddings 🙂
As a summer bride you’ll be looking for bright and colorful blooms to create a fun, youthful, and exciting wedding. Keep in mind that just because you’re using bright colors doesn’t mean you can’t mix and match. If you’re not too keen on all that color you can mix in a more muted palette and keep a single bold color, like a bright pink or dark purple. Mixing different colors will get totally different and awesome results. Use cool colors (like blues) for a softer romantic tone, or warm true colors (full reds or yellows) for a lively and electric feel. One of the best parts of using bright colors is that they go with almost any venue or style that you dream of having. We’d love to talk to you more about making your dreams come true, and we can’t wait to bring your bright, bold look to life.

We’ve been noticing that outdoor weddings are becoming increasingly more popular, and we wanted to show off a few of our recent favorites from some of the best photographers in the city. Even though you’re thinking about the outdoors for your wedding, that doesn’t mean you have to be limited to just “rustic” or “farm” weddings. The weddings we’re showing off stylistically encompass everything from Black & White Elegant to White & Classic to Rustic Farm and everything in between! These pictures are all great examples to show case just how much you can do with your Outdoor Wedding. Your imagination is the limit, and as always we are here to help you determine what will work best for you, and the venue, so please don’t hesitate to send us a message at email@example.com to set up a consultation. We’re so excited about bringing your vision to life!

Cake anyone? Today’s post not only tempts your taste buds but offers food for thought when it comes to decorating your wedding cake. Serving cake is considered a symbolic tradition, generally thought to bring luck to the couple and all the guests who enjoy it on wedding day. While many cultural superstitions surround the wedding cake, we are noticing a trend that is of particular interest – fresh flowers! With the popularity of vintage or natural inspired weddings among Tennessee brides, we are seeing more and more of our couples opt for a cake that incorporates flowers or other organic elements into the decorations (like succulents on the cake below – so unique!). Flowers are often a less expensive option to the tedious applications offered by your cake decorator and can accent your cake in a variety of ways, shown below.
As a focal point, your wedding cake will showcase your theme, decor and personality – we hope this offers you some inspiration for your own wedding. As always, we are here to help you determine what will work best for you (even if it’s a cake sans flowers)… just send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your wedding consultation. We can’t wait to bring your vision to life!

Couples getting married at CJ’s Off the Square often do so in their signature gazebo located in their backyard garden, next to the reception pavilion. Picturesque, timeless and with space for an intimate wedding of 135 guests, the space is also remarkably versatile. Team Enchanted has been fortune to have created many of the unique looks for the couples married here. Below we have gathered up a few images from favorite wedding over the past couple years to inspire your wedding ceremony vision.
And for those of you without plans to marry at this historic location, know that many of these designs are easily transformed to fit a church altar, Jewish Chuppah, arched doorway, or even an empty hilltop (where we can create a custom “gazebo” from scratch!). Until then, enjoy a little wedding ceremony inspiration from a favorite wedding venue, here in Nashville 🙂

Today we are sharing the final installment of our recent Legacy Farms style shoot and we saved the best for last! Building on the rustic decor and amazing texture at Legacy Farms, today’s space is reminiscent of a wildflower wonderland. A rainbow of bright colors immediately draws you in but as you look closer the organic elements and natural texturea ties back to the venue itself. Suspending the delicate glass vases with ribbon adds a softness to the space and an element of playfulness. The simple and causal place setting lets the flowers be the focal point while still adding interesting details and whimsy. For the bride looking to bring the outdoors in this unique reception spaceis a show stopper, indeed! And it works with many budgets as well… couples could choose to highlight their bridal party tables or a sweetheart table with more intricate decor and then opt for my classic table centerpieces for the guests’ tables as a less costly alternative.
Once again Joe Hendricks served as the talented photographer for the images below. You can see all of his images from our big day of wedding styling on his website, here. Biggest thanks to everyone involved… as always it was great fun and we can’t wait to do it again!
After debuting our style shoot on Monday with a sweet country wedding ceremony, we are back at it with another look. This takes the Tennessee country setting of Legacy Farms and adds a dose glitz and glam! Combining the dramatic draping and lighting with vintage details and rustic accents, balances the contrasting textures perfectly. We used simple white flowers in silver mercury glass and pillar candles for the table centerpieces. Keeping your tables neutral and simplistic helps not to overwhelm the surrounding wood grains and texture. It is always important to keep this in mind when looking at venues… it is more cost-effective to accent the color scheme and style already in place at a wedding venue versus work to cover it up. Sometimes your theme will determine the venue that works best; other times your venue serves as inspiration for your wedding day theme!
Once again, we need to give credit to all the awesome Nashville wedding vendors that help pull this stunning look together. Stay tuned for the final show stopper of our style shoot on Friday!
