Megan + Darin / Steel Magnolia Barn
The prospect of marrying the love of your life should be seen as a fun adventure, and for Megan and Darin, it was just that. They met at work, but it was their mutual love for games that truly brought them together. As their relationship grew as their passion for plants and gardening did as well. It seemed only natural that they would want to incorporate their two mutual passions into one extraordinary event.
When we met with Darin and Megan and heard about what they were envisioning; we immediately jumped at the opportunity to make a gorgeous, game themed wedding a magical reality. We were just so glad that 7Nine Photography was there to capture all the memories of this beautiful day!
The Steel Magnolia Barn in Murfreesboro, Tennessee lent the perfect backdrop for intertwining the beauty of gardening with the fun atmosphere of games. With the help of Larson Floral Co, Megan and Darin were able to pair their beautiful color palette of sage and lavender gray with greenery, succulents galore and floral decor that made some of the most pleasing table settings we have seen.
The couple started their adventure with a First Look. Megan absolutely glowed in her beautiful wedding dress and with her hair and makeup done by One10Beauty, when Darin turned around it was clear that he only had eyes for his stunning bride.
Megan walked down the aisle holding an absolutely
stunning cascading bouquet made up of succulents, roses, carnations and greenery, arranged by Larson Floral Co. The couple exchanged vows, lakeside which was the perfect backdrop for this enchanting evening. At the pronouncement, they were met with cheers of pure joy as Darin and Megan officially became husband and wife. The guest then made their way inside for appetizers and a delectable dinner served by Tasty Table Catering. Just outside in the pavilion, decorated with crystal chandeliers and drapery, guests were welcomed to join in on active gaming tables featuring some of Megan and Darin's favorite board games. The children had a fantastic time between the activities set out for them on the kids table as well as playing with the Giant Jenga set and customized cornhole game featuring with the newlyweds’ last name with a twenty-sided dice set.
The game didn't stop there, however. Through the barn doors guest were surprised and delighted to see the theme extended to the head table which
was decorated with hand crafted Meeples and Dice. The wedding cake and groom's cake, created by Olive Branch Bakery were almost photographed as much as the bride and groom...and who could blame them?! The cakes truly embodied the atmosphere of the wedding with Meeples adorning the bride's wedding cake while the groom's sported a pair of dragons surrounded by dice. The delicious cakes were the perfect accompaniment to an amazing array of foods provided by Tasty Table Catering.
Decorated with Meeples and Dice, guest were also delighted by the sweetheart table and bridal party table's decor. Meeples and Dice kept popping up in the most delightful manner making everyone smile and we heard many, "Ooh!! Look at that!! and "How cute is this?!" from their guests. Music Tree Entertainment kept the crowd on the dance floor until it was time to finish off the evening with a rousing game of board game themed bar trivia! To everyone’s delight, the bride won the showdown.
This was definitely one of our favorite weddings with the unique and playful theme that truly reflected the unique and playful personalities of our beautiful bride and groom.
