The Story of the Wedding
Our colours were green, gold, and grey. We overall just wanted a short ceremony and a party that was fun for everyone. My dress was a silver/grey, and we tried to strike a balance between a formal event and an extremely nerdy booze fest.
The venue was The General Morgan Inn in Greeneville, TN. We chose it because it was affordable and had a beautiful rooftop that was perfect for an early evening ceremony. The reception was at the same hotel in the ballroom. My mother suggested the venue. It was actually our plan to just have a backyard wedding, but she wasn’t hearing that. It worked out beautifully.
Our favourite moment was dancing with friends at the reception. We walked down the aisle to The Dog Days are Over by Florence and the Machine, and our first dance was Everlasting Light by The Black Keys.
Our advice would be that when it comes to wedding planning, learn to pick your battles and compromise on less important things. When relatives and planning get to be too much, put it all aside and just spend time together for a while. And remember that it’s easier than ever to elope!
