HARDY and Caleigh Ryan tied the knot in front of 350 guests at Diamond Creek Farms in Nashville this past Saturday (10/29/22)
Ahead of the wedding, Ryan told PEOPLE that they chose their venue because it was “brand new and absolutely stunning.”
“It’s like huge, green pastures. It’s a beautiful stone venue. It has an outside ceremony space that looks out to all the trees and Tennessee landscape. It’ll be moody,” she said of the setting, which she planned with Grey Boroff of House of Grey Events.
For the big day, the bride wore a dress that she custom-designed by Naama & Anat after failing to fall in love with any of the dresses she tried on at a bridal shop.
“We go to a lot of awards shows where you get to wear beautiful dresses, so it really was about finding my wedding dress versus just another beautiful dress,” Ryan, 25, said. “That was my biggest obstacle. So I ended up creating a dress from scratch.”
As she worked with her designer to create her dress, Ryan said she would travel back and forth from Nashville to Austin.
“She did a fabulous job,” she said. “I love it. It came out so beautifully, and I’m so excited about it. We were playing around with the idea of a second dress, but I just love my gown so much that I want to wear it the whole time.”
Though Ryan did end up changing into a short going-out look, she said it was more of an “exit dress” since they continued the party on Broadway after the reception.
