Haley + Jordan / Saddle Woods Farm
Updated: Jan 11
Haley and Jordan met while they both were working as nurses on a cardiac step-down unit. After a year of being coworkers and establishing a strong friendship they started dating. Together they enjoy the outdoor life with activities from swimming and kayaking to a stroll at the local farmers' market. Saddle Woods Farm was clearly the perfect venue to cultivate this love for the outdoors and turn Haley and Jordans dream of a glitzy, glamorous 1920's wedding into a roaring success.
Their wedding journey began with a breath-taking first look. Haley was an absolute vision in a wedding dress that surely almost every soon-to-be bride dreams about. The beautiful floral embellishments and invisible neckline were accentuated with hair and makeup done to perfection by Jossy Maness Beauty. We were thrilled that Haley & Jordan decided to hire Divine Images and Truth Allure Videography to ensure that every gorgeous detail was captured.
The outdoor ceremony was truly a vision to behold. The dedicated crew at Weddings & Events by Raina worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail was attended to, and that everything was in the proper place to fully accentuate the glamorous roaring 20's vibe that Haley and Jordan wanted their guests to experience. For the ceremony, the beautiful bride and groom were framed by an elaborate floral masterpiece, designed by Creations by Debbie. They also provided the extensive bridal party with gorgeous, fragrant bouquets that also doubled as arrangements in the reception hall. The bridal bouquet itself was a true vision that had every woman yearning to catch the bouquet at the end of the evening, just to be able to take a memento of these beautiful summer flowers home with them.
Guests were invited to the beautiful cedar reception barn following the conclusion of the, where to their delight, they were greeted with a room that was truly transformed into a Roaring 1920's complete with copious billows of sheer drapery from Nashville Event Draping, accentuating the ostrich feather and floral centerpieces. With table settings decked out with gold lotus leaf chargers and little thank you notes to each guest tied to their fork, all in attendance felt welcomed to sit and enjoy the decadent decor and celebratory feel of this amazing wedding day. Between the incredible designer's eye of the Weddings & Events by Raina team and the impeccable selections available at Southern Events Party Rentals they were truly able to make this event an over the top affair.
Everyone enjoyed signature cocktails provided by Concoctions as well as the creative coffee and cocoa blends while rocking it out on the dance floor to the musical selections by DJ Dingo. These tunes had guests of all ages up and dancing all night long truly showcasing the pure joy that everyone felt at being able to celebrate this glorious occasion with the bride and groom, especially after having to postpone due to COVID back in January.
The delectable spread prepared by Chef Penelope's Catering is always a crowd pleaser drawing guests back to the buffet multiple times, unable to get enough the delicious cuisine.
The real showstoppers, however, were the wedding cake and grooms cake created especially for them by the creative cake artists at Nashville Sweets. The groom, a huge Beatles fan had an entirely musical themed cake complete with tiny instruments intricately made from sugar and icing. The wedding cake, which was equally as gorgeous, featured a midnight sky with a topper of Haley and Jordan dancing off into the stars...I believe Frank Sinatra said it best when he crooned, "Fly me to the moo. Let me play among the stars..." And, we will let you in on a little secret...these beautiful cakes tasted just as amazing as they looked.
A beautiful sparkler send off ended this dreamy evening as the bride and groom headed off to the tropical paradise of Bora Bora. The entire evening was a glamorous success that truly encompassed everything that Haley & Jordan envisioned for their big day. The entire team at Weddings & Events by Raina certainly felt honored to have been a part of this elegant Roaring 1920's wedding.
