Darby and Garrett spent an evening with friends at Arrington Vineyards in 2013, and no one knew it would be the very same place Garrett would propose two and a half years later. They now cherish so many photos from onlookers around the vineyard who also enjoyed being a part of their engagement! The couple was married on April 23, 2016 at Brentwood Baptist Church. The chapel aisle was lined with petals, flower arrangements by Savoir Faire, and large candelabras were the centerpiece at the front of the church. The bride wore a dress by the designer Pronovias and a cathedral style veil. Her father walked her down the aisle to a pianist and cellist playing Wagner’s Bridal Chorus. Garrett and his groomsmen wore black tuxes and matching wrist watches that the groom had given to them. The wedding party was a mix of family, including the bride’s sister, the groom’s father and brothers, and the very best of friends. Once the couple was pronounced husband and wife, the carillon bells rang out, and the newlyweds walked out to Mendelssohn’s Wedding March.
The reception was held at Brentwood Country Club. The outdoor lawn resembled an English garden party with wine from Arrington Vineyards, a variety of cheeses, tall cocktail tables draped in ivory and a vintage seating area for guests to talk and enjoy the sunset. A couple of bean bag games were held on the end of the lawn for the more competitive guests. As guests entered the dining room, they were met with the warm setting of glowing candles in mercury glass and flower arrangements with white hydrangeas and garden roses. The Craig Duncan Band entertained guests all night playing music from Frank Sinatra to Uptown Funk. After the cake cutting, toasts, dancing and bouquet toss, the bride and groom ended their evening as they ran through friends and family waving sparklers. They now live in Franklin, Tennessee and plan to honeymoon this winter in Peter Island.
