Sometimes a song can speak right to your heart. For Jessica & Jeff, music and love are almost synonymous. It was music that brought them together, and on their wedding day it was how they expressed their love for one another.

Jessi and Jeff planned a romantic evening wedding in downtown Nashville. The day began quietly as Jessi spent the afternoon at Charm Salon getting hair and makeup done. She joined her mother and bridesmaids at her suite at Hotel Indigo to put on her dress before heading to the wedding venue.

Because their wedding began after sunset, they decided to do a first-look at the ceremony site. Jessi slowly walked down the aisle towards Jeff and as he turned around to look at his bride, it was like a moment frozen in time. We could see the connection between them, see the sparks flying, and feel the energy in the air. And as they simply held each other, putting their heads together and whispering each other, we knew we were looking at two soulmates.

Their ceremony took place on the beautiful rooftop at Graham Central Station in the heart of Nashville. Overlooking the Cumberland River and LP Field, they were joined by their closest friends and family for a very emotional ceremony. As a very special surprise to Jessi, Jeff arranged for a performance by country music band Emerson Drive, who sang Jessi and Jeff’s favorite song “Belongs to You.” As the music began, Jessi still didn’t know that it was live until she heard the first note sung. It was such a sweet moment, and one that they will never forget.

Following the ceremony, Jessi and Jeff had a beautiful reception downstairs in the River View restaurant. To go with their music-themed wedding, the reception featured some amazing elements, including a black guitar for guests to sign and a black and white cake with music notes. Their wedding stationery was designed by Cory Ridge ( and included a Save The Date that was a concert backstage pass and invitations that were made to look like a concert ticket (complete with perforated RSVP ticket stub).

The rest of the evening was filled with music and fun, as Jessi and Jeff shared their first dance together, partied with their closest friends and family, and enjoyed their dream wedding together. We thank them so much for letting us share this special day with them, because we consider them friends! We love you guys! : )
