Alison & Derrick: May 21, 2017

Alison + Derrick | The Pick Inn Gallatin, TN Wedding from Little Josh Productions on Vimeo.

This week’s post is about Mr. & Mrs. Day! Alison & Derrick met after one of Derrick’s friends set them up  after he and Alison dated! Funny how the world works sometimes… 🙂 Alison & Derrick have a love for Disney, as Alison once worked there, and the two were actually engaged in front of Cinderella’s castle in Disneyworld. Their vision for the wedding was a fun and memorable event with a hint of romance. Their colors were a beautiful wine-burgundy and grey. We accented those colors with the bridesmaid’s bouquets, and added quicksand roses which are a beautiful blush color.

Now here’s where it gets fun. Alison is a zookeeper at The Nashville Zoo – and we got to incorporate some fun aspects of that into her reception! Instead of traditional table numbers, Alison & Derrick named each table after an animal that she cares for at the zoo. So instead of calling up “table #1 and #2” to the buffet, the DJ got to call up “clouded leopard and binturong”! That was a fun and interesting challenge for our DJ to pronounce all the animals correctly 🙂 Alison also made favors for her guests to take home that were footprints of some of the animals!

I had such a fun day with this couple, their friends & family and it was an honor to coordinate their special day. Check out our amazing vendors below and make sure to check out their pages!
