Traditional Nashville Wedding


Brandon and Anne Devers both value tradition and wanted their wedding day to precede accordingly.  In keeping with tradition, the couple chose not to see each other prior to the ceremony.  They did however, have a few staged photographs beforehand, with their backs to one another. “It was so hard not to sneak a peak! It was all I could do to not turn around; I wanted to see my groom! I’m thankful I didn’t, because I was able to experience a truly wonderful and almost indescribable moment: being walked down the aisle by my first love, my father, to meet my best friend and true love, Brandon.”



The couple chose to have a small private ceremony at Christ the King.  During the exchange of their vows, Brandon surprised Anne with a custom made wedding band to pair with the band she was expecting and her engagement ring. “I was so caught up in the moment that I didn’t even notice the switch at first. I was focused on not crying or tripping over my dress. Once I realized what he had done, it only reinforced what I knew to be true, that this thoughtful, loving man was ‘The One’ and I am blessed to be his wife.”



Union Station provided a conventional, yet ornate backdrop for the reception that included extended family and friends.   The wedding day was focused around tradition and romance, with a large round head table for the wedding party that incorporated a modern twist.  Members had a simple round mirror frame noting their name, adding a personal touch.  The table was adorned with sparkling floating candles and simple glass vases for the bridesmaid’s bouquets that circled the inside of the head table.  Anne’s mother crafted together smoky purple and silver ruffled chair embellishments for each seat.  The place settings had monogrammed napkins, following the southern tradition, also made by the mother of the bride.  There are so many personal aspects that go into each detail, states planner, Angela Proffitt.  “Having a planner that has an appreciation for incorporating personal touches and has an eye for unique design can help create a spectacular event that will be hard to forget.”



“Another memorable moment on our wedding day was our official announcement to family and friends at our reception in Union Station.  The room was full of so much love, it was surreal and humbling to have so many people gathered to celebrate our union.”
Guest tables surrounded the wedding cake displayed in front of the cozy fireplace and candlelight creating an intimate space for dinner.  Everyone danced the night away to 24/7 band and even had a few dance offs.  The night concluded with Anne and Brandon’s grand sparkler exit! “It truly was a magical day from start to finish, one we both cherish and will never forget.”
