Eco-Friendly Wedding Inspiration

Onto the wedding inspo! We utilized the beautiful outdoor space at Wanderwood for this styled shoot. A styled shoot is simply a photo shoot capturing a mock wedding. This is a great opportunity to introduce couples to new venues and local vendors. It can be super helpful to see a space in some type of "wedding" form when viewing it for the first time. Styled shoots make this possible!

One of our favorite local Maine photographers, Katelyn Mallet captured this day. We conceptualized a barn wedding day with an eco-friendly theme. A natural color palette, organic florals straight from the farm, and the intimate style all brought this idea to life. It is always fun to work with our wedding vendor friends to bring you creative inspiration.

Nashville Wedding Venue Tour: OZARI

If you are searching for your perfect modern-industrial wedding venue, I have just the space for you. We are taking a look at a sophisticated warehouse space located in Nashville. Keep reading this blog for a Nashville wedding venue tour of OZARI event space!

The Basics

Let's go over the basics about OZARI first. This event venue is located in L & L Market, a contemporary market and gourmet food hall. This is located conveniently within the city! OZARI is a private space within L & L Market that can seat up to 150 guests. If you are planning on a cocktail-style celebration, the venue can then hold up to 300 guests. As a planner, I especially appreciate the on-site parking and valet along with the catering kitchen. These aren't the most glamorous parts of an event but your vendors will thank you! This also can save you on costs and additional planning. Here are some more basics about OZARI that you need to know:

  • 3,967 square feet of space
  • Patio available
  • Additional private and semi-private spaces available upon request
  • 175 cross back chairs included in venue rental

You can check out more details about OZARI on their website.

Now it's time to tour the space. The black steel details, industrial brick walls, high ceilings, and spacious windows create the perfect canvas for the modern event. OZARI is an open floor plan which provides more creativity for your layout. Even if you have an idea of what you might prefer for your wedding layout, it is important to work with a wedding planner. They will be able to handle the logistics and catch any "hidden" details to make the function of your event seamless.
