Storm forces wedding indoors

No one wants rain on their wedding day, especially when the ceremony is planned to be outside, and has already started! When an unexpected storm quickly rolled through the Nashville area, Chris, Trey and their guests handled it with ease and grace. The couple moved their nuptials indoors and said “I do,” away from the storm. 

As luck would have it, the storm kept going and cleared up in time for the couple to have their reception outdoors as planned. Guests enjoyed a spread of appetizers that were paired with a variety of wines. After dinner Trey and Chris cut their two layer, vanilla frosted cake that was adorned with greenery. 

From the photographer, Mandy Whitley: Trey and Chris were very handsome grooms in their custom made suits from Cianni Cellini. Their wedding was at the beautiful Lilac Farms at Arrington Vineyards, in the rolling countryside outside of Nashville TN. The couple planned to be married by a close family friend outside and the ceremony started there, then a sudden storm came through midway forcing them move the remainder of the ceremony indoors. Then, just as quickly, the storm moved on, giving the couple the elegant tented outdoor reception they wanted to a perfect sunset. They even had a local group & friends, Sister C, play a few songs at their reception in true Nashville fashion!
