Fusing together their mix of Latin, Jewish, Colombian and southern cultures, Leigh and David’s fall wedding day combined the slices of life that make them whole. Autumn Crest Farm was the perfect venue in allowing them to create their dream day, even if that meant doing so from scratch. Elegant with a rustic touch, their celebration came together perfectly and concluded with lots of dancing. Enjoy these charming photos of their day captured by Nathan Westerfield.
From the bride: Our wedding was a celebration of a mix of Latin, Jewish and southern cultures. David is Cuban and Colombian. I was raised Jewish and my Mom was raised in the South. We celebrated this mixing pot by combining aspects of each culture: we were married under a chuppah (that my family built!) and had a high energy hora dance, we played salsa music when the band took breaks, had a cuban cigar bar and a “hora loca” themed after party all while set on a horse farm in Tennessee!
We both attended Vanderbilt University (I for law school and David for undergraduate) and thought no place better to celebrate our big day than Nashville, TN. It was amazing to see it all come together. Autumn Crest Farm isn’t a traditional wedding venue (it is a working horse farm) so we had to plan the wedding from scratch and bring in every vendor/rental. There is a beautiful six-bedroom home on the property that our families stayed together the week of the wedding. It was so special to have that time together and it was a celebration to go down in history! The event flowed beautifully between the farm and the main house to our tented reception party. We also hosted a welcome party on Friday at Barista Parlor East Nashville. We rented out the space, catered Martins BBQ and had a live honky tonk band play! We transformed the space, it was amazing!
