Pink Nashville Saturday...Part 1

As you all know, I traveled to Nashville for my cousin Jenna's wedding. Here are some pinks that I found along the way....Stay tuned for Part 2 next Saturday!

During our way down, we stopped at two wineries, both in Tennessee. The 1st one was called Sumner Crest. They were a very unique in the fact they had old antique cars inside the winery. They also had very pretty glass and chandeliers. I fell in love with this swirly glass pattern of some wine goblets. Tho I could not afford the majority of these delicate pretties, I was able to experience the great wine and took some home with me - Muscadine (a type of grape variety well known in the southern states) and a great blackberry wine; they were right when they said it is a party for your taste buds!
As we got closer to Nashville, we stopped at Long Hollow Winery. This one is owned by Stu and Aldona Phillips ....Stu is a member of the Grand Ole Opry...very Nashville. There, they also had wonderful wine and lovely glass beauties, like these glass grapes....

OK, now we are in Nashville.....we checked into our room at the Embassy Suites and decided to go out and take a look of interesting things outside. After receiving a tip from one of my cousins, we ventured across the street to a cute, small shop named Gigi's Cupcakes. As I walked inside, I had all of these wonderful little artsy cupcakes staring back at me - what a difficult decision to make. The bummer about it is they don't ship to other states, yet; hopefully one day tho.


We also stopped at the local Farmer Market near downtown.....
After visiting with some of the sights and some family, we got all gussied up and headed off in a carpool caravan to the Cheekwood Botanical Garden for the wedding. There are so many individual garden collections that we were not 100% sure where we were going. So after the trial and error and finally finding the visitors' center, we made it to the ceremony site at the Wills Perennial Garden.
The pink wedding journey will be continued on next week's Pink Saturday....so stay tuned!

For other Pink Saturday goodies, travel on over to Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound.
