Stephanie Bullock Photography Nashville Wedding

The First Wedding at Margaritaville Hotel in Downtown Nashville

We love an intimate affair, especially when they’re as beautiful as Josh and JaNaye’s wedding day! Not only was every last detail beautiful, but they were actually the first wedding at Margaritaville Hotel in Downtown Nashville. The color palette of pinks, mauves, purples, and navy blue dressed up the venue with hints of sparkle adding to the overall style. It was the perfect mix of contemporary glam thanks to the help of wedding planner Ophelia of What’s the O’ccasion Wedding & Event Planning. And speaking of glam — can we take a moment to appreciate JaNaye’s gorgeous gowns?! Absolutely stunning. Not only will this day leave its mark for being the first wedding celebration at this hotel wedding venue, but with it’s striking color and moments these highlights by Stephanie Bullock Photography are sure to leave their mark in multiple ways!

From Ophelia of What’s the O’ccasion Wedding & Event Planning: This Micro wedding was a very intimate wedding for my Clients Josh & JaNaye Halligan who are new to Nashville! While on a journey of planning their wedding and having to reschedule multiple times due to the pandemic. Decided to cut guest list down and set a final date of May 30th 2021. Margaritaville Hotel opened late fall of 2019 and closed down Shortly after due to COVID-19. Reopened This year and WTO has been blessed to be the first wedding to be at this beautiful venue in Nashville.

What was your theme and what inspired it?

Modern Elegance

Where did you splurge? Where did you save/DIY?

We saved by having a micro wedding and cutting the list down to a more intimate feel. Guest count of 30 saved money.

What words of advice do you have for couples in the midst of their planning?

If you want to truly enjoy your wedding day hire a coordinator to help the day of! If you are too busy to plan, research and book things leading up to your big day hire someone that offers both services! Ophelia & WTO were amazing!

It’s safe to say the first wedding at Margaritaville Hotel in Downtown Nashville was a pretty one! Congratulations to this happy couple!
