Bride & Groom:
Alyssa and Patrick Connolly
August 3, 2013
Marathon Village, Nashville, TN
“When it came down to the planning we knew we wanted our wedding to portray our style as a couple and introduce some of our favorite things to our closest family and friends. Patrick and I held both our Ceremony and Reception at Marathon Village’s Event Space in Nashville. I had been in love with the historic buildings since a young age and enjoyed the urban flare it set for the evening.” ~ Alyssa
“Patrick and I both grew up with parents in the Military and were used to moving frequently. We met in High School while in Tennessee and it has been our longest stay for years. We now consider Nashville home and wanted to incorporate some southern treats into our wedding reception. From the drinks to the desserts we made sure to use local items from vendors here in town. Patrick and I were most excited about the desserts and wedding favors!
Since we are both foodies with quite a sweet tooth, we knew we wanted our favors to be edible. The first thing that came to our minds were Goo Goo Clusters! The Goo Goos were quite the rage all evening and were a hit with guests of all ages. Another thing I liked was that each Goo Goo Cluster was individually wrapped and allowed guests to stash a few for their trips home. I think this little sweet treat helped bring to life our vision in a big way and portray our love of the city to our out of town friends and family.” ~ Alyssa
