If you haven’t heard about Tassels and Tastemakers yet, it’s an annual networking event for the wedding, wellness and lifestyle industries hosted by Be Inspired PR! For the first time ever, they took the party to Nashville and hosted a “back to your roots” event that we’re totally obsessed with. This is farm-to-table like you’ve never seen it before. From a vendor display featuring rustic breads and jams to a lounge moment literally dripping in florals, every moment from this party felt “homegrown” and gave us so many Nashville wedding ideas & inspiration! Scroll down to check out more from this gorgeous day thanks to Laura Moll Photography’s stunning pics!
With Nashville being at the top of everyone’s travel list this year, we knew it was the perfect time to bring our Tassels and Tastemakers event to the trendiest city. We decided that a “back to your roots” homegrown theme would be the perfect fit for a Nashville fête, and at Allenbrooke Farms, the theme completely came to life. Guests entered and immediately at check-in, they were able to donate canned goods for a food drive we hosted with our charity partner One Gen Away. Their mission emphasizes the importance of feeding hungry families in Nashville, and we felt like this was a perfect opportunity to give back to their organization. After dropping off their donations, guests stopped by Bar Magnolia’s adorable trailer to grab a cup of hot coffee in the cool fall temps before heading inside. When guests entered the party, the first thing that caught their eye was the jaw-dropping lounge moment featuring a massive display of florals from FiftyFlowers.com designed by Wildflowers LLC to highlight the most incredible custom quote from With Love and Letters. Talk about serious Instagram story potential! Guests were also able to head over to the “Spread the Love” vendor display – what a fun way to show off the team that brought this party to life. Outside on the patio, guests made their way to the bar from Simply Southern Occasions. From OneHope wine to cocktails from Blackleaf Vodka, there were plenty of pretty things to sip on all night long! A fresh farm-to-table food display was right next to the cozy lounges from Mayker, which made this spot the place to be all night long, even when the temperatures started dropping! Inside, everyone was head over heels for the yummy bites Dannie Holmes Catering provided – we even caught the team from Growing Things Videography sneaking a bite in between capturing footage (look at those desserts – can you blame them?!) Guests danced all night long to the sounds from Entertain!’s DJ expertise. After all, in the city of music, what’s a party without music?! Upstairs, our VIP guests enjoyed the special VIP lounge with access from the cutest entry bracelets thanks to 31 Bits. With swag from Tula, Amika, and Paddywax Candle Bar, VIP guests had a chance to fill up their bags while waiting their turn to have a custom luggage tag created for them by With Love and Letters!
From the delicious food to the yummy drinks to the gorgeous decor, everything came together perfectly for this rustic-roots-inspired networking event. We couldn’t have done it without all of our vendor partners! Nashville, you truly know how to inspire a good party – we’re already booking our tickets to come back soon!
