We absolutely love planning proposals here in Nashville. Since we started offering this service two years ago we’ve had so much fun getting to know so many couples and being in on the secret! Dallas contacted us two weeks before he was headed to Nashville from Montana and said he was ready to pop the question.
We always ask as many questions as possible so we can make the occasion a special one. It’s a little harder pulling specifics out of the guys, but Dallas had some great input for Elizabeth. She LOVES string lights. That was the biggest part. He wanted them everywhere. They were also considering Cheekwood as a wedding view after visiting a while back, so he already had that in mind when he contact us.
After many more questions we got to work getting in touch with the venue, our good friend Lauren Athalia for photos, and our new go-to for proposal videos, Chris Wright.
We arrived early to get everything setup while Dallas and Elizabeth enjoyed dinner at Husk. He excused himself to use the restroom prior to their departure to let us know they were on the way. We rehearsed the steps we would take when we spotted them as they walked the trail we talked through in the planning process, and then we waited.
As they arrived on property we were alerted by the front gate that they were on their way in. We all took our places and once they hit the right spot along the path, the song that Elizabeth wants to walk down the aisle to started playing. We learned afterward that when they heard this Dallas told her they “must be having a wedding here.” To which Elizabeth said, “And they stole our song!”
You can see the rest in the video and images below. We hope you enjoy this Cheekwood Botanical Gardens proposal as much as we did!
