One might say that I have attended more than my fair share of weddings this year, but the final one, which took place on Decemeber 27, was absolutely magnificent in every sense of the word.
Alison and Steven were married at First Presbyterian here in Nashville.
An ornately beautiful and lively reception took place at the Schremerhorn Symphony Hall immediately following. It is truly a breathtaking location, made even more beautiful by the decor.
The bridesmaids wore full length gold sequin dresses, which sounds a little risky but they ended up being beautiful and matching the gold accents of the evening perfectly.
Similar to Matt and Susan's wedding, this wedding was particularly fun for me because of the mix of Wake and Nashville friends who were there as guests.
The band performed a lovely mix or oldies and fun dance songs, along with the flashing glasses that were handed out as props on the dance floor.
Alison and Steven's first dance was probably the best I have ever seen. It started out to Ben Rector's "I wanna dance with somebody"….
… but transitioned into a hip hop song and choreographed dance including Alison breaking it down and Steven tossing his tux jacket aside and doing "The Worm".
I always love the bride and groom's exit from a wedding, not because the celebration is over, but just because it is the culmination of all the excitement for their new life together. Alison and Steven's exit was as amazing as the rest of their wedding, complete with sparklers, champagne, fireworks, and a horse drawn carriage.
Cheers to you, the new Mr. and Mrs. Steven Coley!
