Emily and Sean were married in a traditional church ceremony at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary followed by a reception at Houston Station in Nashville, Tenn. on July 12.  “It was the one for us because we knew we could make the space our own,” Emily said. “It has its own unique feel with the wood beams and brick walls; yet, at the same time, it was such a transformative space. We loved the coffee shop in the venue, Noteable Blends. It was also minutes away from downtown.” The bride wore a silk ball gown with an illusion lace neckline, accessorized with her hair in an updo, floor-length veil, and a pair of jeweled Ivanka Trump peep-toe high heels, while the groom wore a black tuxedo, accessorized with a matching bow tie and cumberbund. Bridesmaids wore long purple chiffon dresses in various necklines and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, anemones, astilbe, and dusty miller wrapped in ribbons. “I cannot stop thinking about when they opened the doors at the church to begin the walk down the aisle,” she said. “It was such a flood of emotions seeing my soon-to-be husband and all of our loved ones there to witness our matrimony. Sean and I waited to see each other until this moment, and once I saw him, it was truly worth the wait!” Fun fact: a live artist painted the entire scene! Cocktail hour began with an assortment of spirits. Dinner came shortly thereafter inside the renovated train station. Tables were decorated with gray linens, white napkins, mercury glass centerpieces, and votive candles, surrounded by chiavari chairs. “It’s hard to pick just three details,” Emily said. “The flowers were stunning and classic. They seemed to accent the space so well, and they were fresh, crisp, and light. The arrangement of them throughout was beautifully done. They were accented around a hanging menu by the buffet line, below and around my cake, and also draped across the long head table.” Even a monogrammed gobo was projected onto the dance floor! The newlyweds’ best advice? “Keep your focus on what is important,” she said. “The purpose of your wedding is to marry the love of your life. The details, logistics, and families can be tough and stressful at times, but focusing on the fact that your wedding is the start of the rest of your life together is so important. And if you can, get a wedding planner! It can make a difference in the planning a great experience and a not-so-great experience. It certainly did for me.” At the end of the night, they jetted off to their honeymoon in Antigua.

Vintage Country Photo Shoot

Style Shoot

Southall Eden – Nashville, TN

“The inspiration elements for this shoot were twigs and lace. We wanted to play up the natural elements of the venue, but also create an ultra romantic setting. The altar was created by hanging a sheer ivory panel from a horizontal tree limb and framing it with lace panels on either side. The twig and crystal chandelier created interest overhead, while a simple antique table served as a resting place for candles. We incorporated soft, romantic flowers in shades of white, pink, and coral by hanging mercury glass lanterns with shepherd’s hooks on either side.
