Hello, all I hope the holidays are treating you well. I have a darling late summer wedding to share with you today photographed by Lauren Kenzie Photography. Emily & Ben’s wedding took place at the Bella Reed Farms in Franklin, Tennessee. The event was stylishly put together with the help of the grooms Aunt and friend. I just love the eclectic country style and the range of pretty colors incorporated.
Take a peek below and don’t forget to read the brides comments at the end of the post.
From the bride, Emily:
How did you meet?
Ben and I met in Franklin, TN. I went on a trip to Israel and he was the one leading the trip. We became friends on the trip, then began dating about 5 months later.
How did he propose?
Ben proposed on top of a building in downtown Franklin. He had sneakily driven 12 hours to Iowa, the weekend before, to ask permission from my parents to marry me! Needless to say, I was completely surprised. Because I had know idea he visited my parents, and I knew he wouldn’t ask me before he talked to them, I had know clue it was coming. He decorated the roof of the building with lights, balloons, pictures, and a decorated table for us to eat Indian food (our favorite). There, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!
What was your Wedding Planning, Inspiration and Style?
As far as my inspiration for the wedding, I would say I am just someone who likes a mix of things. I like a non-matching eclectic look for almost anything, so I wanted my wedding to be happy, full of color, and a little random. Ben’s aunt and friend listened to what I liked and created the look I wanted!
What was your Favorite memory of the day?
I loved having so many people we loved all in one place at one time! Ben and I are from 2 far away places, so bringing some of our favorite people together was so special. When we were standing up in the front, I looked out into the crowd and saw faces of people that were celebrating our marriage, and that meant so much to me!
