Wedding Wednesday...The Reception

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

I love how so many fellow bloggers participate in another weekly tradition for "to-be brides" cleverly known as "Wedding Wednesday"... luckily enough, I can jump on the train until June 2011 and talk about all the exciting details of planning my dream wedding.
I know I teased a few of you with not spoiling the venue for our reception, but as of today, the contracts will be signed and we will have secured our venue.
An easy task: no--being the detail oriented and uber: right side brain person that I am, I had to check what seemed like EVERY venue in Nashville before I was able to commit to a reception venue, but I am 100% happy with my decision and am excited to see the finished product.

3rd aVenue South is a 15,000 square foot event facility located in downtown Nashville, one block from Broadway, and across from the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. With its exposed brick details, historic charm, and open floorplan, I love the fact we can transform it into whatever we want. Because we are having a traditional ceremony, we wanted our reception to be a bit more "modern and fun with a taste of everything Nashville" and I think we found the perfect place to blend the two.

Here are some pictures from other receptions at aVenue that I just LOVE!

  1. I LOVE your wedding venue! Its gorgeous! I found your blog through Taylor's. If you need any invitation type stuff, monograms, stickers, programs, save the date magnets or whatever come look at my blog! I am trying to get my business started so I am doing pretty much everything at cost right now! So its a super cheap way to get custom invites and stuff!

  10. Beautiful. I'm so impressed with how quickly & efficiently you're making these decisions. It took me nearly 6 months to commit to a plan. (Probably because I was trying to talk everyone into a wedding in my parents back yard - to no avail.)
