Unexpected Love

July 2012

When Stephanie Chalk visited her sister in Nashville for a weekend, she didn’t expect to find her other half during a game of the classic party favorite, flip cup. 

Allen Grant happened to be at the same party as Stephanie, joining the flip cup game and even changing teams to “get a better view” of her. Later that night, they shared their first kiss in Printer’s Alley. “We talked every day after we first met, and nine months later I decided to move to Nashville,” Stephanie says. The rest, as they say, is history.

Fast forward to a warm summer evening, when the couple went to a Nashville Sounds game and planned to get dinner and drinks later in downtown Nashville. But Allen had other plans. As they walked by Printer’s Alley, he proposed to Stephanie with his grandmother’s engagement ring.

With the help of wedding planner Meredith Zeller, they planned their perfect summer wedding at downtown hotspot The Cannery Ballroom.

The ring: This 1930s stunner, a round brilliant cut diamond set on a white gold band with diamonds on each side, was the perfect timeless ring for Stephanie. “It is incredibly moving to know that the engagement ring that Allen presented to me was worn by a couple who was happily married for over sixty years; what an incredible example for us to have for our marriage,” Stephanie says.

The wedding planner: Meredith Zeller of Bridal Blueprints, who Stephanie describes as “detailed, creative, fun, and organized.”

The flowers: Bonnie Denton of Belles Fleurs in Franklin.

The dress: Stephanie first eyed her wedding dress on another bride-to-be at The White Room in Lebanon. She tried on the classic, elegant Alcanar by Pronovias dress immediately, and knew it was the one for her.

The food: Clean Plate Club did the “absolutely phenomenal” Southern, family-style catering, and the number one favorite dish was the squash casserole. The gorgeous bride and groom cakes were by Rebecca Schreher from Cakes by Rebecca.

The photographers: Jen Cook and Ann Carroll of Photographix, who Stephanie raves are “amazing and truly care about their clients.”

The first dance: “You & Me” by Dave Matthews Band

Advice for Nashville brides: “Find one venue or vendor you love and ask for recommendations for other vendors from them,” Stephanie suggests. “Every good vendor knows the other good vendors and wants to work with them at the events they do.”
