Melinda & Zach
Q & A with the Bride:
1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?
When we first viewed Nash Farms and saw the beautiful natural backdrop, we knew this was the place for our wedding. My husband is a history nerd, so the historical nature of Nash Farms appealed to us. It was cool that we were able to wed in a location that some of the Civil War took place. We had lots of really neat places for photo ops; hay bales, barns, rolling hills and oak trees.
2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?
1. I knew from the beginning I wanted a country chic wedding, so I began my search for antique teal Ball Mason jars. My mom took a trip to Kentucky to visit family and came back with lots of them. It was fun collecting them throughout the year, each one was unique.
2. Instead of a traditional toast, I wanted to do a coke toast. Nothing is better than an ice cold coke in a glass bottle on a hot summer evening. This was a great moment in the wedding, as Zach’s brother was the best man and my sister was the maid of honor, and they were the ones to toast us.
3. My colors were teal and tan. I wanted to incorporate that into a fun candy bar for the guests, so they could take home a little piece of the day. I picked out candy that matched the theme and other candy that was our favorite. Everyone enjoyed the sweet treats!
3. If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?
My one piece of advice would be getting a great photographer. It is definitely worth the money! If you don’t think your budget will allow, make changes. I couldn’t be happier with Tate, she was amazing. She helped us feel relaxed, and she knew how to capture the look of my wedding even better than I did.
4. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about.
Zach and I waited a long time for this day, and we wanted to make “our” moment very special. Before I started to come down the aisle, his brother tapped him on the shoulder to turn around. It was a perfect moment between the two of us that our guests got to witness. This moment, along with me seeing all my loved ones and friends sitting in the audience had us both in tears. They were happy tears, and I will treasure this moment forever!
