Real Nashville Wedding: Bethea + Richard Schoenfeld

Studying abroad brought Bethea and 
Richard together. The pair met at the London School of Economics, and despite going separate ways after spending the summer together, their relationship withstood the test of time—and distance.

Richard proposed along the Beacon Heights trail overlooking the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Linville, North Carolina. After a champagne picnic, Richard surprised Bethea once again by gathering their families to celebrate the engagement. Bethea, a Nashville native, envisioned a classic, Southern wedding, complete with lush peonies and an elegant color scheme of white, ivory, champagne, and touches of blush. After a ceremony at Christ Church Cathedral, the newlyweds joined their guests at Belle Meade Country Club where they danced the night away.

“When we go to weddings, we think the most fun part is the dancing. If people are out on the dance floor, then you know they’re having a good time,” Bethea says. “That’s always our favorite part of other people’s weddings, and it was the same
for ours.”
