Mandy and Ray — June 23, 2012

Ray and Mandy’s day of nuptials was truly exciting, filled with cherishing moments and sweet surprises. The couple worked with the lovely Megan of A Southern Soirée to tie together a sweet theme of blue and freshly-pink florals from The English Garden Florist.

Michael Moss captured the day on camera, while Heart Stone Films captured it on video. We can’t wait to see the final results!

During the couple’s reception, Ray surprised his new bride  with a puppy she’d fallen in love with. We love Little Beau and were happy to have him on the property for the day!

The Wow Factor Cakes created a unique and adorable custom monogram for Ray and Mandy’s cake, which was finished off with matching florals and silver accents. The rest of Ray and Mandy’s food was provided by Rocky Top Hospitality.

Ray, Mandy, and Little Bear- we were over the moon to share your special day with you!


Heather and Nick Salvatore — June 8, 2012

One of our favorite parts about hosting weddings here at The Sutherland is all the wonderful people we get to meet along the way. We felt no different about Mr. and (now) Mrs. Salvatore and their wedding party and guests. We hosted the couple’s ceremony at the walled garden at 5:30 p.m., followed by cocktail hour on the Grooms Terrace and a reception on The Oaks Patio.

Heather Lauffer blew everyone out of the water with all of her stunning shots, capturing each and every personality that this celebration had to offer.

A few of our favorites? These shots of Nick meeting his bride at the altar.

But, of course, we couldn’t fail to mention these perfectly-captured moments either. As you can see, we had a blast with this wedding party! We especially adored this mother-and-son dance … perhaps the newest trend?

Best wishes, Heather and Nick! We truly loved worked with you and sharing your special day!
