For Heather and Travis, it was love at first sight. The couple met while working at a children’s school in Nashville on Travis’ first day! They got engaged at Mere Bulles in October of 2019 but initially were there to celebrate his birthday. It was a special full-circle moment for Heather and Travis because fast forward to the wedding day, they ended up having their reception at Mere Bulles!
Heather wore a luxury ballgown covered in intricate baroque lace made of lustrous white sequins. Her bouquet consisted of an assortment of white, cream, peach, pink and lavender roses, along with purple lilacs, pink ranunculus, white hydrangeas and thin-leaved eucalyptus. Travis’ attire was a classic black Ralph Lauren suit with a skinny black tie. He was going for a timeless look inspired by The Beatles.
The wedding ceremony took place at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Nashville and was officiated by Reverend Dr. Brian Hooper. Organist Dr. Kristen Hansen played the ceremony music for the seating of parents and grandparents, bridesmaids processional, the bride’s processional and the recessional. The wedding reception was a dinner party celebrated and catered by Mere Bulles. The wedding cake was a chocolate and almond cake with buttercream and decadent flowers added by the florist. Copper Whisk Cakes designed the wedding cake to look like Travis’ grandparent’s wedding cake from 1956!
For Heather and Travis, their wedding day felt like the longest AND shortest day of their lives, but truly the happiest day thus far!
