Jordan and Josh eloped in Joshua Tree National Park surrounded by their closest family and friends. To celebrate their marriage, they decided they wanted to bring everyone to their home of Nashville, TN for a celebratory reception full of flowers, food and dancing.
Jordan chose a color palette inspired by the dusky desert landscape. Earth tones of sand, rust, toffee, mauve, pale pink, and emerald green brought a bit of their Joshua Tree elopement to life in Nashville. The Gifford Collective designed the event intentionally, with soft, muted pieces from Please Be Seated.
The florals were designed to be lush, and whimsical while still keeping in step with the more modern design elements chosen for their Nashville wedding. Ceramic white vases with a geometric texture were filled to the brim with lush, beautiful and unique blooms like toffee roses, garden roses from Grace Rose Farm, cappuccino roses and the most incredible local dahlias that glowed in the sunlight. A wild installation was created by Gradient and Hue to adorn the head table with florals feeling as though they were growing from the ground. Vines cascaded from the ceiling above the bar, and sweet bud vases were sprinkled throughout the cocktail spaces.
The Reserve at Fat Bottom Brewery was the perfect Nashville wedding venue, complete with a sunny garden patio in full bloom and an industrial space that the couple could make their own. Both Jordan and Josh are beer connoisseurs, and so the industrial brewery space was a perfect fit. The garage doors were opened to bring a bit of the outside in, as guests dined among ivory linen tables with vivacious florals and tasteful place settings.
The guests danced the night away in the crisp fall evening air, serenaded by a live band, Erik Blue Band. Jordan and Josh saw their guests off one by one with full hearts.
