Jennifer and Eddie were married on the perfect September day at The Ryland Inn – Coach House. Their stunning summer wedding was filled with so much love and we were so happy to be included in their special day.
Eddie and Jennifer met while they were both attending James Madison University in Virginia. They were introduced through a mutual friend and after quickly connecting with each other, they realized they were both from the same hometown!
Eddie popped the question at a winery in New Jersey surrounded by family—Eddie was supposed to be in Nashville but flew home and completely surprised Jennifer!
I loved getting to know the couple and when I asked Jennifer what she was most excited about, she said “to become Eddie’s wife and dance the night away with my loved ones” (which she definitely did).
Jennifer and her bridesmaids started their day in the bridal suite at The Ryland Inn, getting pampered and glammed for the big day. The bridesmaids wore a variety of styles in a neutral taupe.
One of the sweetest parts of the day was when Jennifer did a first look with her bridesmaids. It was so cute to see her bridesmaid’s reactions when Jennifer came out in her gorgeous lace bridal gown.
Eddie spent the morning getting ready with his groomsmen and the couple’s furry friend! We love when couples include their pets on their wedding day. We worked with the couple to create a special greenery necklace for their dog to feel included in the ceremony.
Jennifer and Eddie did the first look before the ceremony. The grounds at The Ryland Inn are just so gorgeous and make the perfect spot for the photos for the first look.
The outside ceremony took place outside under a gorgeous wooden arch. We were so excited to make Jennifer’s vision of a lush flower arrangement adorning the arch a dream come true.
The couple put so much care and thought into every detail of their ceremony. It was so beautiful and you could just feel all the love that surround Jennifer and Eddie.
Following the ceremony, the couple took pictures with their bridal party, friends and family.
When it comes to the details, Jennifer and Eddie thought of everything! Every detail came together to create a romantic and classy ambiance. We worked with the couple to add to the unique space that The Ryland Inn has to offer.
We loved their seating chart and table names—the couple named each table after one of their favorite places throughout their time together. This included their local college spots, places they’ve enjoyed along their travels and some hometown favorites!
Each table was fashioned with a long garland of greenery and pillar candles, tying the look of the reception together. The couple’s sweetheart table was in front of the gorgeous fireplace at the Coach House.
Jennifer shared this piece of advice for future brides, “Do not overthink every little decision! You are supposed to enjoy this time and all the little stressors are not with it. This is about you and your future husband and that is all that matters.”
Jennifer and Eddie, we are so happy we were able to be a part of your special day! We wish you the best of luck and many years of happiness!
