An Exciting Eclipse-Themed Wedding in Nashville, Tennessee

View More Photos

While every wedding is special, there are some weddings that go above and beyond. One of these is the Nashville wedding of Dan and Katie, who decided to get married on the day of the 2018 Solar Eclipse. To make it even more interesting, the eclipse-themed wedding was televised on Nashville local news stations, as the couple won the “Elope at the Eclipse” contest held by the Adventure Science Center, which also served as the wedding venue.

The Adventure Science Center, as the organization behind the contest package, helped the couple have the celebration of a lifetime. The vision for the wedding was a “stellar solar eclipse wedding.” The décor consisted of space-themed elements, such as galactic skies and constellations, along with traditional wedding flowers by Amelia's Flower Truck and the Nashville skyline behind the ceremony, all of which were captured beautifully by Mandy Liz Photography.

While the wedding was paid for, it was still important for Dan and Katie to feel like they were involved in the planning process. The couple went everywhere together with the wedding planners at Evergreen Events while planning and made sure they discussed what they both envisioned for their big day. They credit the Science Center for making their vision come true and spoiling them with everything from catering by Chef's Market to Entertain!'s musical accompaniment, along with making sure they were in the perfect spot to see the solar eclipse.

The bride, radiant with hair and makeup by Shani G Makeup Artistry, wore a stunning, light gold dress ornate with lace, bling and a plunging back, designed by Karen Hendrix Couture and provided by Posh Bridal Couture. Katie accessorized the look with her gold wedding ring and multiple other gorgeous, rose-gold rings. Dan wore an ivory suit accessorized with a peach tie to complement the wedding flowers. 

The best thing about getting married on the Solar Eclipse, according to Katie? 

"Dan’s favorite part was saying 'I do' (on television at that!). My favorite part was probably being on the rooftop getting to see such a magical celestial event next to my husband."
