Young Love: From bookstore to wedded bliss

March 2012

Celia Stephens first laid eyes on the bouncy, curly-haired Yancey Gregory in the University of South Carolina bookstore. While she can’t cop to love at first sight, fondness turned to true love over the course of several years.

On an icy January night, complete with freshly fallen snow, Yancey placed a single round solitaire diamond set in a white gold band from Genesis Diamonds on Celia’s left ring finger. The couple’s secluded ceremony took place at Shelby Park in East Nashville on September 16, 2011, with a “low-key but upbeat” reception the following night at downtown venue Cellar One.

The dress: Celia donned a strapless, A-line, tea-length gown with a bold red sash from The White Room. She accented with pearl earrings and necklace, look-at-me red Guess closed-toe pumps and a bright red gerbera daisy in her hair.

The photographer: Hannah of Hannahelaine Photography. “Her shots captured all the stunning, hilarious, tender, formal and memorable moments of these special events,” Celia enthuses.

The cake: A three-tiered, round vanilla buttercream cake by Tom Huber. Huber used black and white patterned ribbon, fresh red gerberas and gothic picture frames as a cake topper. “Tom made our vision beautifully and deliciously real!”

The flowers: Red gerbera daisies and monkey grass and floating candles for the reception by Gaylord Opryland Horticulture.

The wedding planner: While the couple planned the majority of the ceremony themselves, they had some help from Julia Page of Randi Events.

The food: Two Fat Men created a “heavy Southern hors d’oeuvres” menu to go with the dinnertime cocktail party reception. “I wish I’d popped several more mini chicken and waffle bites over the course of the evening.”

The first dance: I Want to Be With You Always” by Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin. “The melody, harmonies and lyrics touched me.’

Her unforgettable moment: “When my Dad walked me up the stone steps to Yancey, and I first locked his gaze and grabbed his hands, everything less than positive truly melted away from me.”           










His unforgettable moment: “When we were officially announced at our reception, and presented before our friends and family. It’s not every day you get to walk through a door, to be met by all of your friends and family smiling, clapping and cheering for you, as you’re arm in arm with your beautiful new wife.”

Advice for Nashville brides: “If you realize mid-planning that you and your future hubby have lost control of your own big day, and you’re unhappy with the ideas projected by others onto you, for goodness sake, SPEAK UP! Within reason, you should make this time what you want it to be, and nothing else.”
