NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — If the pandemic canceled your dream Nashville wedding, this may be the answer you’re looking for.

One lucky couple is being gifted a free Music City wedding at the Noah Liff Center compliments of several local vendors led by TN Event Designs and TN Event Health. Brandy Ashley is the owner of both companies whereby combining the two, she now has a COVID-19 compliance team to help with every precaution necessary for an event. Ashley says the point is for the chosen lucky couple to only worry about showing.

“I’m so used to being around the love and seeing these beautiful days and watching all that stop, we really wanted to make sure we gave back to someone,” Ashley said.

The wedding package includes:

  • Lighting and drapery by TN Event Designs
  • DJ/entertainment by High Tone Entertainment
  • COVID-19 compliance team by TN Event Health
  • Photographer by Kelsey Leigh Photography
  • Catering by Beyond Details
  • Flowers by Larson Floral Co.
  • Cake by Cakes & Co.
  • Rental chairs and tents by Music City Tents & Events
  • Noah Liff Opera Center venue
  • Raina Van Setter of Weddings & Events by Raina to officiate
  • Planning by Velour Premier Events
  • Calligraphy by White Ink Calligraphy

Raina Van Setter owns Weddings & Events by Raina and plans to officiate the wedding as one of the many participating vendors. She says for the last several months, couples have elected to either elope or take their weddings to counties where capacity limits are less restrictive. Beginning in March, Nashville's wedding capacity increased from 75 to 125 people.

While Van Setter believes we could accommodate more guests, she’s thankful that popular Nashville venues will have a chance to rebound. The same goes for the many vendors hoping for a return to a sense of normal.

“We haven’t been able to do weddings because of COVID and we’re craving that sense of normalcy as well. We’re very anxious and excited to get back to celebrating as well even if we’re gifting a wedding to someone,” Van Setter said.
