As event designers, we are always searching for inspiration. A visit to Nashville sparked this styled wedding editorial that we are excited to share with you today!
On a recent visit to Nashville, I was struck by the dynamic of this beautiful southern city—rich in history and tradition, but with a clear eye on modern sophistication. Half expecting to see a honky tonk on every corner, instead I found sleekly designed restaurants, gorgeous coffee houses and modern event venues that would rival any larger city.
I was inspired by the contrast of the city, and from that we created a modern, sophisticated take on southern charm. Julie Paisley Photography beautifully captured the aesthetic we were envisioning. With a focus on stark and sophisticated black and white, we added a hint of warm hues of blush and Potter’s Clay. Metallic gold details were peppered throughout.
The Cordelle, built in the late 1800s, created the perfect backdrop for our shoot. Located in the heart of bustling Nashville, its exposed brick and 100 year old Hackberry trees tell the story of bygone days. 12th Table’s eclectic modern furnishings bring the ceremony, dinner table and lounge spaces into an of-the-moment aesthetic.
Petal and Pine’s abundant textured arrangements feel fresh, organic and unfussy. The modern design and calligraphy of Hew + Co’s paper goods were punctuated with a curated collection of vintage stamps from Verde Studio.
Real-life couple Angela and Rico relived their wedding day as our models. Can’t you just feel the love between them? Our bride stunned in a beaded Bo & Luca gown provided by the incredible Nashville bridal boutique, The Dress Theory. Locks By Leslie created a natural but glamorous hair and makeup look. Rico dazzled in a sleek ensemble from The Black Tux.
Aperitif Events & Cocktails created gorgeous, colorful libations. The cocktial in the champagne coupe features a recipe of light rum, lemon juice, rosewater thyme simple syrup, fig puree, muddled raspberry, cyan and egg whites. It’s the prettiest shade of pink.
