– Real Bride & Groom’s Names: Ginny and Mac Brown

– How did he propose? I was on vacation in Denver with a friend, and Mac flew out to surprise me. We went for lunch at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, which has a fantastic view.  I looked to my left to enjoy the view, turned back to Mac who had knelt down on one knee to propose. He had let our waitress know what was going on and gave her his phone to video the proposal.  Two seconds into filming Mac’s phone died.  Luckily a couple of guys at a nearby table heard our waitress say the phone died, so they grabbed their phones as quickly as possible and were able to capture the end. There were cheers and tears.  It was a beautiful day!

– Tell us about your venue and why you chose it: We were married at Scarritt Bennett in the Wightman Chapel.  It is a little chapel located on the Vanderbilt campus in Nashville.  I had first visit the chapel in high school with my choir, and fell in love.  I rediscovered the chapel while in college when I found this beautiful black and white photo of the chapel.  The photo hung on my wall for several years and I knew were the day to come in which I would be married, it would happen in this chapel.

– What was your favorite and least favorite part about the wedding planning process? My favorite part of wedding planning had to be taste tests. My least favorite part of wedding planning was getting together all of the little details toward the end, that’s why I broke down and hired an amazing month of coordinator.

– Any advice for other brides planning their big day? My first piece of advice would be to choose what is most important to you regarding your big day, your non-negotiables and focus on those.  Everything else will fall into place.  My second piece of advice is to have a day of coordinator, at the very least.  Whether that coordinator is a friend, family member, or someone you hire, you will be glad you had someone taking care of the day of details.

– What was your favorite part of your wedding day? Dancing the night away with all of my loved ones by my side
