When it comes to Channing and Michael’s love story, clearly there must be something in the water! The pair met on a float trip in Tennessee. While on vacation with Channing’s family, Michael proposed at Grand Wailea Resort right in the middle of a fountain overlooking the ocean. And when it came time to say “I do,” there wasn’t a dry eye left in the house as the bride’s brothers-turned-officiants pronounced the couple husband and wife.
“I wanted something soft and romantic and simple while still being truly elegant,” says Channing of her wedding day vision. From the chandeliers hanging along the aisle to the softly lit backdrop, the couple’s ceremony at Brook Hollow Golf Club reflected Channing’s wish in every way.

While the ceremony décor wowed and the bride stunned in her custom Nardos Imam gown, there were still plenty of stand-out details packed into the couple’s reception, which was also held at Brook Hollow. Continuing on the bride’s theme of elegance, The Garden Gate created cascading floral arrangements that combined cream and coral roses with greenery and hydrangeas. Stunning floral tie-backs were also created for the drapery accenting the reception area, while candelabras and soft lighting by Beyond helped carry the romance of the ceremony to the dance floor and beyond.
Delicious, down-home food items included a mac and cheese bar, carving station, taco bar, and late-night bites consisting of chicken biscuit sandwiches and fries. But our favorite après-ceremony detail? The duet performed by the bride and groom, who are both musicians in Nashville.
Congratulations, Channing and Michael! It was a joy to be a part of your wedding day!
