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.

From the designer, Paige Brown: I daydream all of the time. There is so much beauty and creativity that lives within our imagination. It's there where anything is possible. I had a vision of a beautiful woman walking through an enchanted garden in a gorgeous silk gown at her flawlessly beautiful mansion. I took that vision and created an entire narrative around it.

Tell us about the couple.

Paige Brown: Chris and Melody are very laid back and super fun to be around!

Tell us about the couple's vision.

Paige Brown: They were pretty non-chalant about the design details, which is obviously every designer's dream come true. I was able to come up with a design with no creative restrictions.

What details were used to create their theme?

Paige Brown: Their wedding colors were plum, silver, and white. We used a ton of textures, lucite, and mirrored elements to give off the modern look we were going for. We also incorporated a gorgeous 8'x8' foot floral wall that served as her ceremony and sweetheart table backdrop.


Can you share any special moments or highlights of their wedding day?

Paige Brown: Their first dance was super fun. They started with a traditional first dance and then broke into "Ju Ju on the Beat." I love that they were committed to being themselves the entire day. Super fun!

Did they have any special requests or unique challenges that you had to work together to overcome?

Paige Brown: It was pretty difficult transporting and building an 8'x8' foot wall, but it turned out so great! This was also the largest space we've ever transformed, accommodating 350 wedding guests!

Congrats to Melody + Chris on such a beautiful wedding! You can find more of Paige Brown Designs' portfolio on her website here and also be sure to give her a follow on Instagram here

A Fun, Sparkly and Cheerful Christmas Styled Shoot at Paige Brown Designs’ Studio

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

4 days until Christmas - can you believe it? And Paige Brown Designs has us swooning over her festive blush, gold, silver and black decorated design studio! We love that Paige thought out of the box and changed the Christmas color palate instead of using the traditional green and red. That flower wall is such an incredible statment piece and all of the sparkle and shine of the tablescape give the room texture and dimension Each and every decor element is carefully crafted by Paige and the finished product is such a stunner! Scroll down for more on Paige's inspiration for the shoot...


Christmas Styled Shoot

Paige Brown Designs Studio


Paige: When I think of Christmas, I think of Paige Brown Designs: fun, sparkly and cheerful. I wanted the design to be a direct reflection of the brand, so that when you see the decor, you automatically think of us. This look was also inspired by my childhood. I remember every year watching some of my favorite Christmas movies and seeing the gorgeous mansions with the crystal chandeliers, sparkling lights, and fabulous decor. I always said that whenever I became an adult, I would incorporate these elements into my home/decor, so I decided to turn our studio into a cozy and glamouorous Christmas experience. We decided against the traditional green and red Christmas colors and went for a more non-traditional look using my favorite colors: blush, gold, silver, and black. I'm really impressed with how everything turned out and I'm looking forward to next year already!

Just when you thought cozy and glamorous would never be found in the same design, Paige Brown Designs never ceases to amaze with her innovation and creativity!
