The "Perfect" Wedding Venue

On my hunt for the PERFECT rustic, vintage wedding I stumbled upon a place that seemed to go above and beyond my expectations! Cedarwood Mansion in Nashville, Tennessee. The website had me hooked, "...picturesque 1830′s antebellum farm estate exudes country charm and offers breathtaking backdrops for the most romantic event of your life – your wedding. Cedarwood’s expansive grounds offer enchanting sites for outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. The beautifully appointed and impeccably restored historic Yarbrough House is used in conjunction with our adjoining pavilion, terraces and grounds for up to 175 guests, or can host intimate indoor wedding ceremonies for up to 75 guests."

I am so inspired by this outdoor cathedral wedding!

What more could I ask for right? That seemed to match EVERYTHING I was looking for! The past few months I spent all my spare time drooling over pictures and envisioning my special day there. Over the Christmas holiday my future husband to be and I took a trip to Nashville to tour the venue... This was it, finally I would get to see my dream location in person! Much to my dismay the venue left me in tears... the "picturesque 1830′s antebellum farm estate" was beautiful yes, but the location was far from. It seems that the estate built in the 1830's has stayed the same but the surrounding area has not. To say the least, the area is not the safest. I was shocked! I guess you could say never judge a book by it's cover in this case!
So the search for the perfect venue continues!
