Nashville rockabilly Wedding

Here is another great post about a Rockabilly wedding from Dandy Lion.


last week we featured houston station. this week i want to feature a dandy wedding that was held there!

wedding colors were influenced by this fabulous nashvegas sign.

yellow chartreuse red teal blackguests were greeted with a hardbound, custom guestbook with photos of the couple. the horseshoe was also on their invitations and later at the desert table. the small jar was one of many favors – local honey donated from a friend with custom horseshoe tags.

black was the base color, bringing out the others in high contrast! we set up black chairs for the ceremony with bright yellow programs.

after photos, we snuck them away for a few minutes to be together and have a  bite to eat.

another favor — gathered saplings that could be taken home and planted.

dessert table setup — fun flamingos and cakes with different flavors!

finalized dessert table and ribbon wall. the bride does not like cake so she ate pie instead!

the plates stacked on the left are biogradeable palm leaves. these and other eco-friendly table settings can be found at ihospitality.

hillbilly casino kept the party going and guests on the dance floor!

this couple loved bold colors, horseshoes, flamingos and the earth. they wanted it to be formal and feel like a wedding, while also expressing their personality. they were also very aware of the environmental impact of their event. what do you think? what did you like or dislike?

with love,
