Celestial Elopement in the Heart of Downtown Nashville

Celestial Elopement in the Heart of Downtown Nashville

For the couple that truly loves each other to the moon and back- we at Nashty hope you are inspired by this out-of-this-world celestial elopement. Eloping in the heart of Downtown Nashville is always a good idea, and this alien wedding was put on by some of the best vendors the city has to offer. Oh my stars- let’s get Nashty! 


Music: Flight Attendant
“Man of Chaos” by Nashville-based band Flight Attendant @flightattendant_band. Cinematic space rock, the song was produced by Grammy Winning Charlies Yingling at the Blueroom Studios in Nashville.

The John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge is nothing short of an iconic gateway into the heart of Nashville. Overlooking the Cumberland River, this bridge served as the perfect backdrop for our alien nuptials. 


With arcade games, pinball machines, craft beers and a whimsical cocktail menu, Headquarters Beercade kept the fun going on the alien’s wedding night. Headquarters Beercade is equipped with catering options, themed pop-ups and even Thursday night trivia. HQ even offers seven interactive installations for a unique photo op.

The lights. The country. The honky tonk. You know and love Broadway, so it was only natural that the aliens strolled down the street as newly weds. They even displayed their “Out of Orbit” sign and met a few humans along the way. 


The aliens stopped by an incredible mural by Kelly “Risk” Graval in Printers Alley. Risk has made his mark in the art world and is known for his world renowned graffiti work. 

As a family owned karaoke bar, Ms. Kelli’s offers the space perfect for any alien celebration. The aliens were shining like stars on the karaoke stage. 

Changing the hot dog game is only the beginning for Daddy’s Dogs. Their menu features hot dogs with crazy toppings such as cream cheese, peaches and sriracha. Their newest addition is located in the Historic Printers Alley.
