New bride Ariel says she isn’t originally from the South, but we’d never guess it from the looks of she and groom Stephen’s Nashville fete. After meeting at a barbecue (we told you!), getting engaged and deciding to settle down in the Music City, Ariel and Stephen knew it was the right place for their wedding, too. The ritzy venue, Riverwood Mansion, contrasts beautifully with the shabby-chic vibe of the entire event, including the bride’s delicate Maggie Sottero gown, and lush bouquets and floral arrangements filled with roses and hydrangeas from The Enchanted Florist. Ariel even had perfectly curled Southern hair, courtesy of Green Pea Salon—we love the waterfall braid detail! Pour yourself a fruit tea cocktail like the ones guests enjoyed at this affair, and let your jaw drop at these stunning images from always-amazing Michelle Cross Photography!
