Katie + Chester’s Traditional Modern Wedding at The Cordelle | Nashville Real Wedding

Katie + Chester danced the night they met, and they danced their way into forever at their beautiful modern southern wedding at The Cordelle! The springy color palette of mint green and neutral touches gave a fresh feel to the day. From the traditional church ceremony to the modern + elegant reception, the day was filled with laughs and memories alike. See their full wedding with photos by Nashville wedding photographer, Erin Lee Allender Photography below! 

Katie + Chester

The Cordelle


How they met, from bride, Katie: We met through friends at a party in Chester’s backyard. No special story behind the actual meeting, but the night we met, Chester sang karaoke, I wore a bachelorette tiara out at the bar, and we went to South (a dance club) and danced together most of the night. Also, Chester thought my name was Kathy for the first few days we knew each other, because the friend that introduced us had given me that nickname.

From the photographer, Erin Lee Allender: Katie and chester had a light and airy garden party reception at The Cordelle this past May. Their wedding took place at West End United Methodist Church and everything was planned by Kristin Kaplan of Stunning Events and Designed by Hillary Yeager. Everything from the light green bridesmaids dresses to the pale flowers and eucalyptus table runners was perfect (wait until you see Katie’s dress!). Delicate china on gold chargers with set salads welcomed the guests into the tent where dinner was served. When that was over they danced the night away to the music of The ErikBlueBand
