Kimberly and Zach’s wedding celebration took place in September at Sycamore Farms in Franklin, TN. This gorgeous venue sits on over 28 acres of picturesque countryside. While it might sound like a rustic wedding, the Simply Golden Events team transformed the space into an elegant and glimmering ball. Having taken place last fall, Kimberly and Zach’s elegant magenta-inspired wedding was well ahead of its time as it set the stage for the trending 2023 Pantone color of the year, magenta.
Kimberly wore a stunning off-shoulder wedding dress featuring intricate beadwork. A long, flowing veil with shimmering diamond specs, completed her bridal attire. Her bridal bouquet by Echoes of Eden included a stunning mixture of magenta, deep blue, and royal purple flowers, with a pop of lighter pink. The bold array of florals were woven throughout their wedding day, decorating the ceremony and reception space. The floral centerpieces perfectly complemented the deep blue table linens and pink candles. The combination of vibrant colors, fairy lighting amongst the drapery, and an otherworldly chandelier suspended in the center of the room, created an ambiance of enchantment and romance.
Kimberly and Zach tied in their new Nashville roots by infusing the city’s musical legacy. Each table was adorned with vinyl records featuring the names of famous artists, instead of using traditional table numbers. This unique touch paired well with the vinyl-styled, seating chart just outside the reception ballroom, which was one of my favorite details. I love when couple’s infuse their own style with their wedding vision.
Kimberly and Zach’s wedding was not only a design dream, but one that beautifully captured their longtime connection, which began in fourth grade as classmates. After high school, their paths diverged, but fate brought them back together at a mutual friend’s wedding, where Zach served as the best man. They were reunited after not seeing each other for seven years. Unfortunately, Kimberly lived in California at the time and Zach lived in Georgia. However, they continued to nurture their growing relationship, despite the distance between them. Then, Kimberly moved back to Nashville where she had attended law school, and they were able to start their next chapter in life together as a couple.
There is no denying that these two were destined to be together. Their wedding was a celebration of their love, as well as a testament to the creativity that lies within the wedding industry. From the breathtaking, magenta-inspired design to the personalized Nashville touches, every element reflected the couple’s bold and unique style brought to life by the talented design team. If magenta is styled in this way, I hope it is a color that is here to stay, paving the way for other bright colors in the wedding industry. Their wedding will undoubtedly inspire couples and wedding designers alike to be bold and embrace vibrant colors.
Kimberly and Zach, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your gorgeous wedding day. It was a dream wedding day, and I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Cheers to you both!
