Wedding Wedneday.. The Rehearsal

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Yes, it's true... another venue reserved for our wedding weekend! In order to get my fiance involved in the wedding planning that he was so desperately seeking {yes, he REALLY does want to help} I gave him the task of researching rehearsal dinner venues in Nashville and finding a place that had everything we were looking for: a private room, outdoor space, southern flair, audio/visual capabilities, and of course--to die for food!
And I have to admit, I was beyond amazed at how well he did--within 2 days of my assignment to him, he had contacted 10+ venues/spaces/restaurants I had written on my list and had scheduled a time for us to eat at his favorite choice...
After going through the final list of 2 or 3 places, we ate brunch at our locale, visited with the on-site wedding coordinator to answer our list of questions, and booked it the very next day!!

This is where we're having our rehearsal dinner:
Mere Bulles in Brentwood {just slightly south of downtown Nashville}
The downstairs room we reserved as well as the outside private
patio for cocktail hour!!
**I took these pics during one of the snowstorms here in Nashville, which does not do justice to this beautiful restaurant... the summer scape is going to be gorgeous!!

There are so many things I love about this venue... the location, the Southern style/decor, the outdoor patio complete with lights, an endless assortment of food for us to choose from to suit all our guests, and the wedding coordinator who will handle every detail {with Mary Alice of course!} Even better, they will work with me on customized menus, centerpiece arrangements, and decor to complete the look we're going for!! Jeff did an amazing job, and because of this--he will be assigned many more tasks =)

  8. Natasha...I hope you don't mind...but I have another question. You can email me answer if you like.
    I fell in love with Greg's ipod out walking today...I mean I was booking up the trails...then when I began to run...I go so frustrated...I could not keep the ear plugs in my ears when I ran...they kept falling out. Any tips on how to keep them firmly in place?
    Am I the only one this happens to?
    Oh I was sooooo loving that music while running!
    thanks natasha!

  9. Why am I just now finding your blog???

    This post is near and dear to my heart - we had our reception at Mere Bulles and it's an AMAZING venue! I can't rave enough. Are you working with Carlin? She's wonderful! The service there is excellent.
