Natu + Phillip’s Tanzanian Downtown Wedding Weekend by Music City Events

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Wedding weekends are the way to go as of late - especially when you're planning a destination wedding! Everyone is already there the whole weekend, so why not make a non-stop party out of it? And that's exactly what Natu + Phillip did last April right here in Music City. The Atlanta natives spent the weekend celebrating through a traditional Tanzanian followed by a classic American wedding! Mary Anna Davis with Music City Events helped the couple design and plan their day with special details throughout the weekend. From a colorful and bright celebration to a classic black and white soireé, Natu + Phillip gave their guests an incredible experience right here in Nashville. Check out all the photos from Gregory Byerline and read about the wedding from planner, Mary Anna's perspective!

From the planner, Mary Anna Davis: Natu and Phil met and dated for 10 years before tying the knot in Nashville, TN! As Atlanta natives, they fell in love with the charm of Nashville and decided to host their two day wedding weekend in the heart of downtown. They are both doctors and got engaged in Paris! They are self-proclaimed foodies and have the biggest hearts of gold.

The two day wedding weekend kicked off with a traditional Tanzanian wedding ceremony at Marathon Village. Nashville Audio Visual provided the drapery and lighting and a family friend catered traditional Tanzanian food.  The next day brought rain and an elegant black, white and gold American wedding ceremony at aVenue downtown. Nashville Event Lighting created custom Edison lightbulb chandeliers for the aisle and Dream Events and Catering designed a delicious menu for these foodies!

Thank you so much for sharing Natu + Phillip's wedding weekend with us, Mary Anna! You can find out more about Music City Events on their website here.
