The Elegant Weddings team had many logistics to consider when planning Libby and Patrick’s wedding for May 22, 2010. Alongside of some of Nashville’s best wedding vendors, we had visiting vendors that traveled many miles to capture their special day. Little did we know that mother nature had another plan in store, leaving us faced with the largest flood to go down in Nashville, TN.
Just as Abby explained, in the Style Me Pretty post, just weeks before the wedding, we hit a little (and by little, I mean HUGE) road bump that we encountered. It’s all in how the vendors pull together as a team to handle any situation that will really make or break your day. It was 19 days from the wedding and we were entering the home stretch of the final planning. The venue was flooded to the second floor of the parking garage and the venue had called off all events for the month of May, Libby’s included. Luckily, the Elegant Weddings team, put a back-up plan in place, after spending hours and hours, days and days, checking with all possible venues in town. But, thankfully the venue opened just days before the wedding date and we were able to move forward with our plans! Libby and Patrick’s wedding story is one of those that will go down in history. From the amazing designers that took part in the day to the flooding that nearly stopped all of our plans from happening…it’s a story that I’m sure Libby and Patrick will be telling their grandkids. Despite the fact that we were literally faced against a natural disaster, the day turned out to be something out of a dream.
