The weekend of May 1st, 2010, was the most devastating weekend of our entire career. Nashville, Tennessee experienced the largest flood in its history, a declared disaster by President Obama. Along with the multitude of homes destroyed, so were many of the city's most popular wedding venues. This threw some local planners into a whirlwind trying to find their frantic brides a location in time for their upcoming nuptials, and some even choosing to move their wedding date.
This video shows the destruction of Middle Tennessee, including the Gaylord Opryland area, Hermitage, Downtown Riverfront, Bellevue, LP Field – Home of the Tennessee Titans, and countless others like Lebanon Square, where the damage is truly heartbreaking. Roads collapsed, homes were floating down the interstate, historic landmarks like the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman are struggling to keep the ‘music' in Music City, and numerous lives were lost.
Nashville is an amazing place to live. Its' citizens have bonded together in this state of crisis and we are all working together. We wanted to take the opportunity to thank the venues who were gracious enough to extend a helping hand to planners all around the state to ensure our brides have a place to call their own on their special day.[flashvideo file=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFjaQoOdJvI /]
