A GORGEOUS FALL WEDDING AT THE BELLE MEADE PLANTATION NASHVILLE // LIZ + SETH

We had the privilege of photographing Liz & Seth’s wedding at Belle Meade Plantation.  The Plantation is located just a few miles west of downtown Nashville, nearby Percy Warner Park, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, and the Belle Meade Country Club.  Belle Meade is not your average plantation, having a rich history of entertaining dignitaries and national leaders, as well as being a crossroads in the South.  Because of this, it draws many bride & grooms who are looking for a destination wedding venue in the Nashville area.  From a photographer’s perspective, Belle Meade is an absolute joy to shoot at, having a wide variety of beautiful architecture, lush landscapes, and historical buildings.  The weather was cool, but the sunlight, beautiful trees, and happy families made for a very pleasant day!  Here’s their story…

Although the day was a little chilly, the sunlight was gorgeous and Liz looked absolutely stunning for her big day!
Love her makeup by Imagine Design Team
The outside of the plantation has several porches, and this one was perfect for her bridal party.
Sarah Willard and her team with Music City Events did an amazing job, and brought to life Liz’s modern, yet classic wedding theme.
One of the unique features of the garden ceremony location at Belle Meade, is the ability to orient the ceremony in either direction; in this case, the wedding guests were able to watch the bridal party walk up from the front instead of the back…
AMAZING sunlight!
One of my favorite shots of the day
Liz’s parents were SO sweet together! 

I always love it when the bride’s sister catches the bouquet!

ACME FEED & SEED // A NEW DOWNTOWN NASHVILLE WEDDING VENUE

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privelege of photographing a few wedding and corporate table setups at Acme Feed & Seed, downtown Nashville’s newest wedding venue.  Acme is in the heart of downtown, next to the Country Music Hall of Fame, Schermerhorn Symphony Center, and Ryman Auditorium.  Located at the end of Broadway, it has an amazing view overlooking the Cumberland River, Shelby Street Bridge & new riverfront redevelopment project, and is sure to be a favorite for those looking to plan an urban styled wedding or year round/holiday corporate event.   Acme is 4 stories and has a restaurant, night club, wedding loft, and rooftop ceremony spot which provides a wide variety of wedding ceremony & reception locations; and managed by the TomKats Hospitality Group, it’s food and catering is going to be amazing!

Dates are already beginning to fill up, so for anyone planning a destination or local wedding, contact Acme HERE for more information.  In the coming weeks we will be starting a new blog series on some of our favorite Nashville wedding venues and why we love them from a photographic perspective, so stay tuned for more details about Acme…

For this shoot, the team we worked with was fantastic!  I would like to give a huge thanks to Christina Logan Design, and Bruce Pittman for styling these tablescapes, as well as Enchanted Florist, Nashville Event Lighting, and Liberty Party Rentals for helping it all come together.  Here’s just a few of the wedding tablescapes that they will be offering…

A CLASSIC, BEAUTIFUL SCHERMERHORN SYMPHONY WEDDING // NICOLE + AMIT

Nicole & Amit are amazing people!  So kind, friendly, positive, and fun to be around…  Ever since their engagement shoot at Percy Warner Park last fall, we knew that their wedding day at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center would be so much fun.  With so many downtown Nashville local and destination wedding venues, Schermerhorn has to be one of our favorites!  Nestled near the Country Music Hall of Fame and Omni Hotel, the grounds at the Schermerhorn are beautiful, and Hays and the staff was super attentive, making our day easy and relaxed.  On to their day…

Their First Look

Such a stunning bride!

And studly groom…

And I love Amit’s mother’s traditional Indian garments…

Their ceremony was held in the main foyer of the Schermerhorn; such beautiful architecture overlooking Broadway and downtown Nashville.

I’ve recently started taking some random photobooth style pictures during the bride and groom portrait session just for fun, and I feel “obligated” to include just a few since Nicole & Amit’s were so funny- haha!

LOVE these next few shots of them…

The lighting team made the reception hall look AMAZING.

And Caprice with the Enchanted Florist did a wonderful job with all of the florals…

The band with Blue Tone Music did a great job with all of the evening’s music…

One last selfie with your whole wedding gathering…

A SCHERMERHORN & DOWNTOWN NASHVILLE ENGAGEMENT // JESSI + JEREMY

Meet Jessi and Jeremy.  One of the cutest couples we’ve had the privilege of capturing; I just love the relaxed and sweet way they have with eachother.  Since they will be getting married later this year at one of our favorite downtown Nashville venues, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, they wanted to start their engagement shoot there.  Enjoy! 

After some engagement shots at the Schermerhorn (Here’s a preview of another recent wedding there) we went over to the Shelby Street Bridge and got some great shots of Jessi and Jeremy with the Nashville skyline.
After a little outfit change, we took a stroll up Broadway to one of their favorite spots Merchant’s Restaurant.
Their event designer, Bruce Pittman did an aweseome job scouting out some great urban downtown locations.  Being that Jeremy is an architect the building we ended our downtown tour with was perfect!  This is the lobby of the Pinnacle Building which is right near the Schermerhorn, Country Music Hall of Fame, and Music City Center in the heart of downtown.  How cool is this wood work!?!

We can’t wait to capture their wedding this fall at Schermerhorn and reception at the awesome rooftop Broadway venue, Aerial!
