Stephanie Campbell & Jonathan Wisdom
Stephanie Campbell & Jonathan Wisdom celebrated their love with a wedding that was full of personal touches.
FAIRY TALE AFFAIR: Stephanie’s strapless ivory draped net mermaid gown by Mori Lee gave her Enchanted Hills wedding an ethereal feeling.
Stephanie Campbell and Jonathan Wisdom’s love story actually started out as someone else’s. Their friends had gone on a first date and talked about how Stephanie and Jonathan would hit it off, so they each agreed to go on a double date. The two clicked instantly and followed up their date with adventures that explored their shared interests—karaoke, early 2000s pop music, pizza and more. After about three years of dating, Jonathan took their relationship all the way by getting down on one knee at Silver Dollar City while the pair was taking in the Christmas lights with friends and family. They even got a great photo op out of it.
Stephanie and Jonathan tied the knot a little more than a year later at Enchanted Hills. A perfect pairing wasn’t in the cards for their matchmaking friends, but they each were in the wedding party, which included best man Matt Tolliver, Brian Katz, Greg Hargis, Ray Bender, Mike Hughes and Eric Shemeld on the groom’s side and on the bride’s side, dual maids-of-honor, the bride’s sisters, Michelle and Lisa Campbell; Ashley Diaz; Courtney Chodes; Abby Katz; and Shelby Bobbett. The newlyweds share a love of wheels—he’s a regional sales manager at Prime, Inc., and she is the finance manager for her family’s Ford dealership.
According to Southern tradition, to ensure good weather on their wedding day, the bride and groom must bury a bottle of new, unopened bourbon upside down at the site of the wedding one month prior to the ceremony and then drink from it on their actual wedding day. Luckily it worked, and there wasn’t a rain cloud in sight.
The groom and groomsmen wore navy suits from Men’s Suit Mart accentuated with navy and champagne bow ties for an elegant, timeless color palette.
In lieu of a traditional guest book, guests could sign a wooden monogram of the new couple’s names with metallic markers.
Stephanie and Jonathan exchanged love notes, which Stephanie read before donning her wedding dress (but after getting her hair and makeup done).
Fortunately for Stephanie and Jonathan, the weather was cool and sunny for their outdoor wedding at Enchanted Hills.
Stephanie worked with SB Bon to create a bouquet in white and pink with hydrangeas, roses, peonies, baby’s breath and eucalyptus. Stephanie accentuated with pins from her mother, sisters and bridesmaids, who were members of her sorority, Alpha Delta Pi.
Guests feasted like kings thanks to Patty Wingo with Simply Delicious. Various stations offered salads, freshly carved meat, Chinese food and Mexican food.
ALL IN ONE: Enchanted Hills provided the perfect setting for a ceremony and reception.
The long tables at the reception were decorated with strands of greenery along with white hydrangeas, roses and baby’s breath spread throughout.
The Wisdoms’ tiered vanilla cake with raspberry ganache came from Cake Worthy and was topped with a custom monogram that matched the large one they used as a guest book.
The Wisdoms have a fond love of all things ’90s and early 2000s, including music, so The Mixtapes were a perfect fit for their reception. Choosing a live band instead of hiring a DJ was among Stephanie and Jonathan’s best decisions for their wedding.
PUT A RING ON IT: Stephanie and Jonathan exchanged rings from Mitchum Jewelers in their outdoor ceremony at Enchanted Hills.
