MR. & MRS.
When Rich and Gadecki sat down with Sara Fried of Fête Nashville Luxury Weddings to plan their dream celebration, the couple of more than three years decided to pay tribute to where it all started.
“We met at the Stagecoach Festival and spend so much of our time on the road at shows,” they told PEOPLE. “So we wanted to throw a festival-themed wedding so our guests could take a step into our lives for a night.”
“My ‘something old’ is my mother’s veil. I took the beautiful lace and tulle and had it turned into our ring bearer’s pillow, a small purse for my day, as well as my garter,” Gadecki told PEOPLE.
Rich, 33, and Gadecki, 35, used the site Minted to design all of their menus, table numbers, save the dates, invites, day-of-pieces and thank you cards in one place.
Bridesmaid Ayesha Curry lent her longtime pal the bracelet she wore to her own wedding to NBA star Steph Curry.
“We have been friends for 10 years and have seen the love of each of our relationships grow,” Gadecki told PEOPLE. “It felt so meaningful to wear something borrowed from a dear friend, whose love I admire.”
Later revelers—in true festival style—wore flower crowns and partied amid neon lights and tepees and enjoyed food-truck treats like sliders and donuts.
The venue — Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro, Tennessee — is also home to friendly goats.
Gadecki kicked off her heels for the reception, changing into custom Converse with her and Rich’s initials and wedding date on the back.
Gadecki wore two different gowns by Israeli designer Galia Lahav for the ceremony and reception, and she described them as the “perfect combination of both sexy and playful.”
“You can see and feel from the details that the dresses were made with a lot of love,” said the actress, who calls herself the “most indecisive person known to man” and tried on a lot of dresses before making her decision.
When it came time for speeches, Rich and Gadecki’s best men and maids of honor (six in all!) took turns passing around the microphone to toast to the couple.
Gadecki’s new goat pal, Oreo, even got its own flower crown for the festivities.
The reception was “the dance party of all parties,” said Rich, pictured here serenading his bride.
“Our friends and family couldn’t stay still if they wanted to. Sabina’s family is all from Poland and rowdy as they come. You mix that with our crazy friends, and it’s going down.”
“We have always trusted each other, and never let any insecurities or fear of anything get in between us,” the couple said. “We fully support each other’s dreams and 100 percent the person each of us are inside. We embrace that fully.”
“I’m so excited to build a life together from scratch,” Rich told PEOPLE. “To know that decades from now when there is a new generation beneath us, that it all started back in September 2019 when we kissed and said ‘I do.’ It’s a really beautiful thing.”
