Planning a Classic, Couture Wedding


The key to having an unforgettable wedding day is to develop a gorgeous wedding vision with a talented wedding planner. We recently spoke with incredible wedding and event planner, Bruce Pittman Inc., about the steps needed to bring a stunning couture wedding to life, like this beautiful, elegant wedding that took place at The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Each lovely detail from the wedding design perfectly creates a classic, couture ambiance to reflect the love and personality of the beautiful couple.






The first step that Bruce Pittman Inc. takes to understand the couple’s wedding vision is to facilitate a “Wedding Details Meeting.” This includes a series of questions to understand the couple’s interests and disinterests, and to identify any design interests to further develop for the wedding day. Getting to know the couple is the perfect first step to implementing a magical wedding day.






After the “Wedding Details Meeting,” Bruce Pittman Inc. begins to organize meetings with potential wedding design professionals. They review and discuss the wedding design, and decide which wedding partners would be the best fit to bring the wedding experience to life. “Once we sign-off on the design plan, it’s vital to create a mock-up of a guest table from the wedding reception to review full size linens along with a sample floral arrangement and any table top rentals such as china, flatware and glassware. I also suggest that this take place in the reception venue to be able to see what it will actually look like in the space with proper lighting.”






This gorgeous Nashville wedding is full of elegant romance. Some of Bruce Pittman Inc.’s favorite design elements from the day include the beautiful linens from Over the Top Inc, the floral designs from Branching Out Event Florist, and the paper designs from The Paper Place. “The use of textured overlays teamed with the perfect color undercloth complimented The Hermitage Hotel very well. In addition, the florals from Branching Out Event Florist along with branded paper aspects such as ceremony programs, menu cards, and escort cards from The Paper Place were key detail elements to carry the couple’s theme through the day.”





When planning a wedding, it is important to remember that the beauty lies in the details. Each lovely detail should evidently capture the ambiance of the wedding day. “When working with a classic couture wedding such as this one, it’s imperative to detail the wedding as much as possible. Each detail is noticed by guests, and each detail should represent the couple’s personality.” It is also important to choose a venue that will compliment the wedding design. The Hermitage Hotel was the perfect Nashville venue for this classic, elegant wedding day. We adore this breathtaking couture wedding full of inspiration by Bruce Pittman Inc.
