It is time now to take a journey back through the recent past, and give our fans a behind-the-scenes look into The 1st Nashville NotWedding.

Step 1: Inspiration

At the beginning of every NotWedding event process, we provide our vendors with a unique inspiration board. The Nashville vendors got a wild & free boho beauty.


Step 2: Introduce our hip Nashville NotCouple, Rhain and Zack

They got adorned in flowy, summery outfits and posed for a styled Save the Date shoot with {declare} photography. Casual is an understatement when describing this lovely couple. We can’t thank them enough for participating. They encompassed the mood of the inspiration board perfectly! Light, breezy, peaceful and peachy.

Step 3: Bonding

We like to get all our vendors together for a Rehearsal Dinner before each event as a way to get connected and familiarize ourselves with our new NotWedding family members. We found a killer hip coffee shop in Nashville called Edgehill Café. Conveniently for us both, they’ve recently started using their space to host rehearsal dinners! After our experience there, we really can’t recommended it highly enough. Rebecca from I Love You Too Photography shot the event for us and took headshots of all our vendors.





Step 4: Crowd Teaser

A few of our vendors get together to create a pre-event styled shoot, and the one for Nashville was an over-the-top perfect bridal shower set-up. We’ll be putting up a full blog post covering the shoot soon, but Zipporah Photography has a post for you on her own blog that I promise you want to check out. Here’s a glimpse:





Step 5: The main event!

Alright, enough backstory. Time for the main event. Tread with caution, because this is some addictive beauty. It’s intoxicating to know what the possibilities are. In this spirit of that truth, I’ll go ahead and give you the list of fantastic vendors you’re about to see the work of. Keep them in mind as you see things you like!

Our videographer for the event, Matt G. Video, put together a gorgeous short video covering the event from start to finish. Begging you to check that out, because I had my mouth open and my head nodding the whole way through.
