Erin and Cliff
Erin and Cliff who met through mutual friends at an Oktoberfest party, worked with the team at Pepper Tree Farm to bring their dream wedding vision to life.
Erin and Cliff met at an Oktoberfest party, where they were introduced by mutual friends. The couple wanted to have a wedding that was light, airy and ethereal ideas inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
“Cliff was working on his German heritage; he went to Germany for Oktoberfest,” Erin said. “We both love the outdoors, so we thought it would be cool to do something outdoors.”
After deciding on a venue for their dream wedding vision Pepper Tree Farm in Nashville they worked with the team at Pepper Tree Farm to bring their vision to life. These included boxwood wreaths hanging from each table, moss-covered planters and a drippy garland of foliage down the head table that held menus in place instead of flowers. “It helped create that enchanted forest feeling,” Erin said of these elements.
The bride said she envisioned a celebration that was “light, airy and ethereal” as opposed to overly romantic or rustic.
“My wedding was inspired by the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” said the bride. “My vision was for a celebration that was light, airy and ethereal as opposed to overly romantic or rustic.”
The couple chose Southern wedding florist Matt Poe to design their floral arrangements. For example, they asked him to create an array of white flowers including garden roses, hydrangeas and calla lilies that were incorporated into bouquets for the bridesmaids and flower crowns worn by guests at the ceremony. The couple also asked him to make sure there were plenty of greenery branches in order to give life to all of their floral creations.
To complement these floral arrangements on tables capes with tall centerpieces as well as low centerpieces which included more greenery branches with smaller vases filled with baby’s breath flowers positioned underneath them.”
She loved the idea of incorporating subtle Grecian details like boxwood wreaths, moss and a “drippy” garland of foliage down the head table.
Boxwood wreaths and moss were used throughout the venue to give it a soft, Grecian feel. “I loved the idea of incorporating subtle Grecian details like boxwood wreaths, moss and a ‘drippy’ garland of foliage down the head table,” she said. “It was so interesting to see how these little touches could add so much character to our space.”
She also had some advice for brides who want their wedding tables capes to look like something out of a magazine: “Keep in mind that you don’t need 10 different centerpieces,” she said. “One or two beautiful pieces can really make an impact.”
Low White Florals and Candles
The altar was replaced with a farm table covered in low white florals and surrounded by candles. The guests were led to their seats as the bride and groom lit incense, which wafted through the room while they walked down the aisle.
The bride wore an A-line dress in an off-white color with a train that extended behind her. The groom wore a suit paired with his favorite pair of cowboy boots.
‘The One’ by Kodaline
“The One” by Kodaline is an everlasting love song. The lyrics are simple, but they speak volumes: “I can’t help but see you in everything, every day and every night/ You were meant to be mine forever and now I know why/ Cause you make me feel like I’m alive again/ And there’s nothing that this world could offer me that could change my mind about you.”
They also had a second dance song picked out: “I Will Never Let You Go” by James Arthur.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Flowers
With a theme inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this wedding was all about lightness both in the flowers and in the atmosphere. The delicate, airy arrangements were a nod to the play’s setting (in Athens) and featured peonies, roses, and hydrangeas. Ethereal white lilies created a dreamlike backdrop for pictures against an equally ethereal blue backdrop.
A little more info on these flowers:
Peonies are iconic for their large blooms that resemble a cluster of grapes they look like something out of Greek mythology! Their season is short but worth waiting for; they’re perfect for springtime weddings when you want something big but not too overwhelming or heavy. Plus they’re planted as perennials so you can enjoy them year after year without needing to replant every year.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedic work by William Shakespeare that centers on the main characters of Oberon, Titania, and Puck. This play has been adapted by many artists over the years, including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who composed an opera based on it.
In this wedding inspiration, we will be taking inspiration from the play to create a whimsical and ethereal wedding at Nashville’s renowned Loveless Barn. We’ll be incorporating elements such as silk flowers, garden-inspired centerpieces, and fairy lights throughout the venue.
The wedding of Anne and Robert in Nashville, Tennessee was inspired by the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The theme was carried out through the decor, which included jars of flowers, birdcages, and other natural elements.
The bride wore a white gown with a floral headpiece and veil. The groom wore a black suit with a floral boutonniere. The couple walked down the aisle together while holding hands and smiling at each other.
Guests were seated at round tables covered with white tablecloths and small bouquets of flowers that matched the color scheme of the wedding. Each table had candles in glass jars as well as lantern lights hanging above it to create more lighting for guests to see each other better when conversing during dinner time.
After dinner had been served, Anne and Robert stood up from their seats at their own table along with all other couples who wanted to dance together on this special night! They took advantage of this opportunity by dancing together on stage where everyone could see them having fun together just like young lovers do!
