Sarah Darling and James Muriel tied the knot in a secret spur-of-the-moment ceremony back in April — but they’re still planning a big Nashville wedding in May 2014 to celebrate with family and friends! Sarah’s sharing her personal wedding diary exclusively with Great American Country. She’ll take us along on the whole journey, from the dress to the flowers to the big day. Check back every other Wednesday for a new post from Sarah!

Welcome back to my wedding blog series! Spring is almost here and the wedding is getting even closer. It’s now down to getting the little details in place. I wanted to do a special post on Front Porch Farms in Tennessee. This is where James and I will be getting hitched later this year! If you love the rustic country feel, this may be the venue for you, or at least give you some amazing ideas on what kind of setting you would like. I knew from the moment I stood on the property that it was “the one.”

The owners, Kathy and Brian Best, are the most lovely people with an amazing story. Kathy also is a wedding planner and coordinator. You may not have known this fact, but Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert had their engagement party at Front Porch Farms! The main house is located on top of a hillside with miles of magnificent views of the Tennessee countryside and the Harpeth River. Double porches, front and back, run the length of the house, allowing guests plenty of room and privacy to relax and enjoy the down-home comfort of porch swings and rocking chairs swaying in sweet rhythm under the cool southern breeze.

Since “The Notebook” is my favorite film, you can understand just why I love this. And James, being from England, really wanted to have a rustic style wedding. It is completely different than what he’s used to! Have you seen the movie “Four Weddings and a Funeral?” That is pretty much what it’s like! I have always imagined myself outdoors on that special day. The question is, where do you see yourself? It’s important to ask yourself so your wedding is everything you’ve ever wanted.

James is an amazing designer! Not only does he do graphics, he also dives a little deeper into branding by coming up with the look and feel of a product. Here is a beautiful “board” he put together for our wedding (above). A board is when you pull photos and put them all together to get the entire feel of what you want. So, as I’m styling the decor at Front Porch Farms, I’ll have a great board to pull from!

For more about the property at Front Porch Farms, check out their official website, which has a description of their main house, guest house and reception area (pictured above). I’ve always been in love with the shabby chic look. This will be a perfect place to get married – and it’s great to pick a place that makes your wedding day a breeze!

Thank you all for joining me on my wedding blog. I will keep you posted on what’s next. Until then I will be practicing making French Macarons for my wedding cake I’m designing!
