She choose the glamorous Hermitage Hotel which is part of Nashville’s history to get ready at.
Jordan surprised her with a custom embroidered handkerchief with the words to a song he sings to her and the dates of when they met, their engagement and wedding day. She completely melted when she saw it and she wrapped that handkerchief around her bouquet to carry with her all day.
They chose to have a "First Look" to recreate the moment she walked down the aisle before the ceremony. That moment was priceless...
I loved that Jordan had his tux custom made and choose all the fabrics and styling. He said if Lauren got to wear a special dress made for her, he would do the same. Lauren was so excited to see it all together!
We even did the family portraits before the ceremony, so everyone could enjoy the party!
After the cake was cut, Lauren surprised Jordan with his favorite desert - chocolate ice cream in the St. Louis Cardinal’s baseball hats (his favorite team).
Several of their friends, came up on stage and belted their favorite song with Lauren and Jordan in the crowd singing along at the top of their lungs!
Jordan’s fraternity brother’s sang the “Star Spangled Banner” during the sparkler exit, a Vanderbilt tradition. They looked like old hollywood movie stars as they hopped into a London Taxi Cab for their get away!
