Young love: From schoolyard sweethearts to man and wife

April 2012

Julie and Dustin Anderson's romance began in their freshman high school English class. Julie says it was love at first sight, but that they "remained best friends for 11 year. True love is definitely worth the wait." 

While they attended different colleges, they visited each other every Thanksgiving, Christmas and spring break. In April 2010, Dustin proposed. 

This do-it-yourself couple planned their whole wedding by themselves down to the very last detail. "We worked together as a team and I think that is the most important going into a marriage," Julie says. "Planning the wedding is a true test of the relationship."

The couple was married and had their reception at the beautiful Governor's Club in Brentwood with their family, friends and co-workers. They had their "happily every after" honeymoon in Montego Bay, Jamaica. 

The flowers: Melissa Marie Floral Design

The dress: Julie donned a Maggie Sottero creation with a sweetheart neckline, lace and beaded corset bodice complete with a tulle and hand-laced train from the White Room

The cake: Dustin and Julie opted for scrumptious cupcakes from The Cupcake Collection and a pretty, 8-inch floral cake topper from Puffy Muffin

The food: Julie said the best thing on the menu, provided by Governor's Club catering, was the mouth-watering "vegetarian fusilli pasta with pesto, steamed veggies and sun-dried tomatoes with an organic mixed green side salad with goat cheese, dried cranberries, brown sugar encrusted walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette. 

The photographer: Erin Lee with The Collection

The wedding party: Five bridesmaids and five groomsmen comprised the bridal party. Two maids of honor-Julie's sister and best friend Ashley - wore knee-length, pewter dresses and the bridesmaids donned navy blue ones from David's Bridal. Each carried a gorgeous blue hydrangea bouquet. 

The first dance: "Then" by Brad Paisley

A moment he'll never forget: Watching the girl of his dreams walk down the aisle. 

Wedding blunders: Despite a lengthy list of blunders-which included Julie dropping the sand during the sand ceremony, her mother falling down the stairs  at the reception and police showing up to the reception because of a noise complaint- Julie and Dustin kept up their optimistic attitudes. "Even though several mishaps were present, we always had a smile on our face and laughed them off," Julie says. "You can't dwell on the negative on the best day of your life." 

Any advice for Nashville brides?: "Work as a team," Julie advises. "It's a true test of your partnership. If you can survive the wedding planning, you can conquer anything! Do not dwell on the road bumps. Accidents will happen and you just have to laugh them off."
