Tennessee Artists Craft Custom Wedding Bands

With all of the excitement this week surrounding the Not Wedding and it’s amazing Southern vendors- I had to share the work of artists Rob and Leighanne with you.  They live in an old farmhouse in West Tennessee with their seven children and craft the most gorgeous wedding bands you’ve ever seen for their etsy shop, Rob & Lean. Inlaid with wood and natural stones like turquoise, these stainless steel bands are perfect for a couple looking for something a little bit different.

For our April wedding we ordered my husband a band from Rob and Leighanne and could not have been happier with the service and quality of their work and communication.  The stainless steel band was beautifully inlaid with a deep brown cocobolo wood that we picked out, making it feel like our own design.  We even had the inside engraved (for free!) with “Home is wherever I’m with you”- lyrics from one of our favorite songs included in our wedding day as we walked down the aisle post-ceremony- which Lauren featured in today’s Southern Songs post! Our entire experience creating this ring for my husband was wonderful, they even sent hand-written cards to us- that’s true Southern manners!
