A Bohemian Fall Wedding at CJ's Off the Square in Franklin, Tennessee
Kalee Stefanski and Aaron Ebalaroza tied the knot on a balmy October day with an intimate garden ceremony in the heart of Franklin, Tennessee.
Inspired by the setting, the couple chose a color palette of rich fall jewel tones and filled the day with bountiful, textured bouquets of stock, astilbe, roses, hypericum and eucalyptus. For the ceremony, a fresh vine and floral garland hung from the quaint gazebo where Kalee and Aaron exchanged vows. To add an element of visual drama, geometric terrariums and vases of varying sizes dotted the long farm tables at the reception. “The flowers stole the show when it came to the décor and style of the wedding,” Kalee says.
As a nod to Aaron’s Hawaiian heritage, the pair incorporated a few traditional elements into the festivities, including a presentation of leis during the ceremony and, later, hula dancers (including Aaron’s mom!). “We surprised my husband with traditional Hawaiian wedding dancing during the reception that had us all in tears, followed by hula dancers and entertainment that had the whole venue dancing,” Kalee says.
Before hitting the dance floor, the newlyweds cut into a three-tier ivory cake decorated with hand-painted gold flowers and fresh burgundy and blush blooms.
