“I would go on choosing you, and you would go on choosing me,

over and over again, and that’s how it would happen every time.”


We cannot say enough wonderful things about this couple. As Events Nashville‘s first full-planning wedding, Deena & Jake were the perfect fit. It’s amazing how you can go from that first tentative initial meeting as strangers to becoming close friends in such a short time. Probably what we love most about this couple is how much they love each other; their love is so strong that it’s a tangible thing to anyone around them. Ask anyone: us, their friends, their family, their coworkers. They are, without a doubt, a perfect match.


To create their dream wedding, Events Nashville called upon some of the best vendors in town, all of whom came together to create something spectacular. We could not have executed Deena & Jake’s dream wedding without the help of many incredible, talented event professionals. One of which, photographer Ian Riley, captured all of the special moments in stunning images to be cherished for years to come.


To Deena & Jake: We cannot thank you enough for your patience and vision. Getting to know you, and continuing to keep in touch with you, has been an absolute joy. You are near & dear to our hearts.

The key to a simple, yet elegant wedding is the attention to details. It was the little details throughout their wedding that made Kristi & Logan’s wedding so special. One of these nuances included having Kristi’s father perform a significant portion of the wedding ceremony, which was incredibly special for Kristi. Another was Logan choosing to play “Managua Nicaragua” for his grandmother, a song played at her wedding! There was nothing sweeter than seeing her out on the dance floor with her grandson! Lastly, they used Logan’s great-grandfather’s 1965 Ford Fairlane as their getaway car; he had passed away shortly¬†after their engagement in October 2015.


Their wedding day was full of happy tears, lots of laughs, and that genuine happiness you only feel when you’re surrounded by loved ones. It was so easy to see how well-loved this couple is by their family and friends. The sweetest moments and most beautiful details were captured by Sarah Sidwell Photography, and we are so glad to be able to share them with you! Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Newton. We loved directing your wedding, and we wish you both a beautiful, loving marriage!
