A Burgundy & Plum Wedding at Stone Gate Farm

November 10, 2016

JOHN + CARI
STONE GATE FARM | MURFREESBORO, TENNESSEE

Cari and John tied the knot at our home away from home in Murfreesboro, Stone Gate Farm. We have had the pleasure of being at Stone Gate several time in the past year, and with such stunning ceremony backdrop, we couldn’t be more grateful to work out there often! On top of the beautiful wedding location, Cari’s colors were insanely gorgeous! We’re still swooning over the fall color palette. Burgundy, maroons, golds, with touches of blush & mint. Such a unique composition but the colors compliment one another so well!

With a sunset ceremony on the horizon, the happy couple wisely opted to do a first look. It was great for them to have a moment, just the two of them, in the daylight before the craziness of the ceremony began. With all of the family, wedding party, & couples portraits finished up before the ceremony they were able to make their grand entrance into the reception sooner! Which meant more time for dancing, food, & laughter.

We are absolutely swooning over the light during their wedding party photos! Y’all, how gorgeous are those fall trees with the light streaming through? This is why we absolutely love fall weddings in the South! The weather has cooled off, the fall foliage is out, and the deep jewel tones for wedding color palettes are our favorite! If you look closely, you can see John’s ring on his finger, which is actually a tattoo! It was still fresh from when he had it done earlier that week.

The dance floor was never empty from the time dinner ended until the night was over, kicked off in style by the dual flower girls belting ‘Let It Go’ which entertained the adults during dinner. Speaking of food, we got some great catering from Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe, who are always delightful to work with. Greek food may not seem like an obvious choice for reception catering (did we mention the day was offbeat?), but it was a big hit with the attendees. Our favorite is the Taziki sauce with cucumber!

Cari’s sisters from Zeta Tau Alpha serenaded her on the dance floor & we also got all of the ZTA sisters together for a group photo! They are all going to love this photo at future reunions! Cari & John’s guestbook was offbeat but rich with tradition. Their guests wrote notes on quilt blocks, which Cari’s mom (who’s an expert quilt maker) will stitch together to create a family quilt for them.

If you adored their beautiful fall wedding, you’ll definitely adore their Murfreesboro engagement session at Stone Gate & The Manor at Twin Oaks!
