Alexa and Martin Walking with Wedding Party under Willow Oak Canopy

Alexa & Martin’s Chic Southern Wedding

Alexa and Martin said "I do," beneath our Willow Oak Canopy in early August followed by a chic Southern reception in our Lakeview Event Center.

Martin proposed in June of 2020 on the rooftop of The Bridge Building Event Spaces with glowing marquee letters from Alpha-Lit spelling out "Marry Me." A custom monogram, which would later be used throughout their wedding weekend, was projected on the iconic pedestrian bridge with the help of Nashville Lighting & Production.

The wedding weekend began with a rehearsal dinner outside on our Cobblestone Court. The following day, Alexa and Martin, along with their closest family and friends, got ready in the mansion. Alexa wore a stunning beaded gown by Made with Love Bridal while her bridesmaids wore mix and match black, gold, and silver dresses. Martin and his groomsmen wore matching black tuxes, socks, and sneakers, and he also gifted them custom bobbleheads.

The ceremony and reception design was effortlessly chic with a modern color palette and classic Southern touches like magnolia leaves. Keeping scroll for some serious summer wedding inspiration.
