Elliott Events {Real Weddings} – Jason & Melissa McCourty – Nashville, TN

This wedding is on my list of ” One of the most gorgeous weddings I have ever created”. When Melissa contacted me she wanted a Greek goddess feel to her wedding and to bring Heaven to Nashville.  Melissa and Jason are both from the New Jersey area but because Jason plays for the Titans 99% of their guests would be traveling for the wedding so we wanted to create a unique experience for them. We found the perfect venue The Parthenon and started the planning this gorgeous event.  The look of the wedding was very important to Melissa so I put A LOT of thought into the details.  The instructions that Jason gave me were to just “WOW” him with the wedding and I was so excited to see both of their faces when they walked into the room(see the end of this post) . After months of work the wedding turned out amazing.  These two are so  in love and  you can see the pure joy on their faces in all of  these photos.  I am so thankful they chose me to be such a huge part of their wedding day.


First looks are my favorite because of photos like these

Yes they had a gorgeous bridal party and I LOVED Jason’s custom suit with the gold lining.

Hour and Hours went into creating this custom piece. It was by far the most gorgeous arrangement I have ever created.

I had the hardest time finding the sweetheart table that would look amazing in this space. So we had one custom built. Then we added florals and it was stunning.

If you have ever been to one of my weddings you know I make the groom dance to his bride for the garter. It makes for some great photos and so much fun!


And LAST BUT NOT LEAST! This is the couple when they saw the reception for the first time.  I love this smile on Melissa’s face! Vision becomes reality!
