Real Bride Story- Jessica and Sean

How did he propose? On our last day of vacation in the Dominican Republic he made me wake up super early to watch the sunrise. Then, he proposed on the beach, so it was worth it.  Tell us about your venue and why you chose it: Tennessee RiverPlace because the views and building are gorgeous. They also had the most to offer. What was your favorite and least favorite part about the wedding planning process? My favorite part about the wedding planning was all the excitement to see it come together. My least favorite was paying for everything. Any advice [...]


Real Bride Story- Meredith and Jeremy

How did he propose? Jeremy proposed outside on the lawn of Belmont’s campus in Nashville. Our families were hiding behind the bushes, and a friend was playing the viola in the background!   Tell us about your venue and why you chose it: 2020 man! We were planning to get married at the McCallie Chapel, since McCallie was/is a huge part of Jeremy/The Bradford’s life. Because of COVID, we ended up at Northside Presbyterian Church – where my family goes. The reception was at The Turnbull Building, which we actually agreed to sight un-seen. We were looking for something with [...]


Real Bride Story- Cara and Jonathon

How did he propose? It was completely a surprise and I cried, like U G L Y cried because it was such a sweet and special moment. Jonathon had planned the perfect evening for dinner, which just so happened to be the anniversary of my dad’s passing. My dad passed away on July 26th, 2017. Jonathon told me that he wanted to go to dinner to get my mind off of everything, but little did I know, he had already been talking and planning with my mom about how he was going to propose that evening on July 26th, 2019. [...]


Real Bride Story- Rachel and Joel

How did he propose? It was last Christmas morning. He got a coffee mug with my name (but his last name) on it with rings and question marks. It was one of those mugs where it changes color when it gets hot — so I didn’t see the question until I poured a morning cup of coffee with him. It was sweet with it being just us two. It also made Christmas Day super fun to tell the families throughout the day! Tell us about your venue and why you chose it: The Highlands Chapel at Howe Farms. It was [...]


Real Bride Story- Holly and Gabriel

How did he propose? I thought I knew exactly when Gabriel would propose. All of his hinting led to Valentine's Day, but goodness was I wrong. The evening before Valentine's Day (which was a Thursday) he wanted to go out and eat sushi. I, on the other hand, did not want to go out since it was 9:30 in the evening. My mother urged me to go, and I'm so glad that I did. We got to the Japanese restaurant and there was only one other couple there. We ordered our sushi, ate, and then when it was time to pay something strange [...]


Real Bride Story- Cierra and Drew

How did he propose? Well, he said it didn’t go according to what he planned, but I thought it was absolutely perfect! He had planned to take me to the spots he had taken me on our first date. But everything he had planned on going to was closed.... so literally in the most thoughtful planned but not planned way, the day he proposed everything was closed AGAIN! (If you’re wondering yes, he did check that everything would be open and yes, the websites were wrong haha). So, we ended up going to have a nice dinner then ended up [...]


Real Bride Story- Emily and Dalton

How did he propose? We rent a farm together and went one evening to check on our calls after a fake "distress call" from a neighbor. He proposed amongst our herd of cattle with my best friend hiding in the trees to capture it all.   Tell us about your venue and why you chose it: Covey Creek Farm. We fell in love with the ceremony space (tunnel of trees) when we visited and knew it was the place for us. Dalton actually chose the venue before I could say how much I liked it. It was a beautiful ceremony [...]


Real Bride Story- Noah and Daley

  How did he propose? For our first date, we saw “Big Fish” the musical. So, 3 years later (to the day) he brought me to where they filmed a part of Big Fish (the movie) close to Montgomery, AL and popped the question! It was amazing. Tell us about your venue and why you chose it Because of quarantine and the pandemic, we had to move our wedding to my parent’s backyard, but it couldn’t have been more perfect if we had planned it. We were able to get married underneath a tree with our family and friends surrounding [...]


Real Bride Story- Emmye and Seth

How did he propose? It was his turn to plan a date night so when I got off work, he had the car packed up and ready to go. I had no idea where we were going or what we were doing. He took me to one of our favorite spots to watch the sunset and have a picnic at Brow Park. Seth made my favorite dish, spaghetti, and even brought the fur baby. He said, "Have you ever played Geocaching?" I had played like back in middle school when it was a cool and popular thing to do...lol. He [...]


Real Bride Story – Ashley & Mitch

How did he propose? We had a week long trip to Colorado planned for early May to attend a wedding. We flew into Denver and then we drove to Breckenridge where we were going to spend a couple nights in a cute chalet with a gorgeous mountain view. The second day we were going to go hiking. We got our stuff all packed and headed out. When we got to the trail it was closed, but there was a trail beside it. Mitch didn’t want to go on that one, so he found another trail, which was close to where [...]
