Briana + Josh / Cathedral of Incarnation Wedding + War Memorial Reception

Classy, beautiful, elite, and timeless are the words that immediately come to mind when I think of Briana and Josh's wedding day.  After preparations at Omni Hotel downtown Nashville, they headed over to Cathedral of Incarnation for an afternoon Catholic ceremony.  Cathedral is hands down the most ornate, beautiful church in Nashville.  Briana is a classic beauty, and looked stunning in her Casablanca gown.  I loved the regal colors they chose, shades of royal blue, powder blue, green and silvers looked amazing together.

After the ceremony, we headed to Vanderbilt (where they both went to school) for some bridal party photos, and then we headed to War Memorial to start their cocktail hour and reception.  Their elegant cocktail hour showcased some of Briana's heritage with a fun mariachi band that everyone danced to... while sipping their drinks and enjoying hors d'oeuvres in the outdoor courtyard.  Loved that!  

The reception was breathtaking.  A giant crystal chandelier hung above all of the perfectly adorned silver and blue tables, while dinner was hand served to all guests.  One Night Band, a band hired to come in from Chicago, put on an amazing show and everyone had a great time!  They finished out the night with a sparkler send off, and left in a vintage white Rolls Royce. 

Briana and Josh, we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!  We loved spending the day with you two.  Congratulations!!!
