Callie and Sinclair’s Cheekwood Wedding

To commemorate Callie and Sinclair’s 2nd year anniversary, we thought we would take a look back at their wedding day that some may say is one of Nashville’s all time epic wedding productions. Dori Thornton Waller of The Social Office orchestrated a team of the best wedding vendors in the state to execute the vision set forth by the bride and the mother of the bride. From April 4th-19th of 2016, Cheekwood Estate and Gardens provided the perfect canvas for Dori’s staff of event designers to transform the Swan Lawn into an elegant reception space. 

Here are a few of our favorite photos captured by Kristyn Hogan

Can you believe the cocktail hour and the reception were held in tents?!?! Each space was completely transformed and gave the guests the feeling they were in a ballroom. The cocktail tent, located directly off the loggia, was adorned by 2 giant trees from Visual Elements and covered in magnolia leaves by The Tulip Tree. Once the dinner bell rang the drape was pulled back to reveal the reception tent. 

The cake designed by Leland Riggins of Dessert Designs was displayed upon its very own chandelier table on the hand painted dance floor. Big Swing kept the dance floor packed once they started rocking and the crazy hats passed out to the guests were a huge hit. The night ended with a brass finale parade for Callie and Sinclair’s departure. 

We were so thankful to be part of such a memorable wedding and only wish the best for the happy couple.
