Wedding at Riverwood Mansion 4/21/17

While rain is usually welcome for many reasons, it can certainly wreak havoc with wedding plans.  A couple needs to be prepared to roll with whatever happens with good humor and the fact that in the end they will be MARRIED.  That’s just what happened Friday evening at Riverwood Mansion.  Krystal and Greg were married in the garden in between showers with umbrellas held over them while the guests held umbrellas as well.  Their ceremony had a couple of interesting rituals including being “lassoed” by their mothers and later a processional of bridesmaids and groomsmen circling around the guests and back down the aisle to deposit coins.  Not sure of the significance because we, being parked on the porch to keep our instruments out of the rain, couldn’t hear the officiant explain what was happening.  At the end of the ceremony they also passed through a sword arch done by some of her colleagues.

Congratulations to Krystal and Greg and may they have a long and happy life together.

Wedding at riverwood Mansion May 16, 2015

Lanier married her sweetheart, Nathan, in a garden wedding at the lovely Riverwood Mansion on the east side of Nashville.  Jocelyn Sprouse took the lead of a quartet for their ceremony and cocktail hour.  Lanier chose the beautiful “Butterfly Waltz” for the entrance of the mothers and grandmothers.  The wedding party arrived at their positions to a Handel “Aria” while Lanier made her entrance to the “Canon in D”.  As Mr. and Mrs., Lanier and Nathan made their way back down the aisle to the joyful “Hornpipe” by Handel.

Continuing the festivities in the pavilion the quartet entertained with classical as well as a few tasteful contemporary selections while guests enjoyed cocktails before dinner.

Congratulations to Lanier and Nathan and their families!
