Nashville Wedding Inspiration.

In the enchanting hills of Tennessee, just outside of Nashville, this styled shoot embraces warm, rich colors that offer cozy, romantic vibes. Set at the brand new White Dove Barn, the glorious hills and warm sun provide a welcoming presence as the stylish bride and groom come together in this beautiful rustic-meets-modern affair.

There are innovative accents seen throughout this shoot, including this personalized piece of leather. The introduction of dark paper pieces also balances the gold and burnt orange color palette.


The bride looks gorgeous with a classic updo, small curls framing her face, and a V-neck lace gown.


Her texture-filled bouquet incorporates the color palette exquisitely with light orange blooms, white roses, thistle and assorted greenery and eucalyptus.


On the porch of the venue, she looks brilliant from head to toe.


The dashing groom looks classic in a black tuxedo with a long black tie and boutonniere that matches the bride’s bouquet.


A creative double-exposure combines the couple’s silhouette with the shoot’s colorful flower selection.


As they step outside on the venue’s sprawling lawn, the bride and groom shine in the sunlight and echo nothing but love and admiration.


Inside, a ceremony scene is set with flowering branches in front of the venue’s white wood-paneled walls.


The couple enjoys a nearby reception full of color and contemporary details like a dark tablescape, modern chairs and sleek glassware.


The colorful floral arrangements, marble plates and gold flatware complete the modern design.


The wedding cake is a gold and navy blue dream. A textured navy blue base anchors gold-painted tiers and a white top tier. Finally, a small floral garnish completes the confectionary creation.


The couple steals away to relax on a plush brown leather couch – an enticing addition to any lounge space and a way to enjoy the last few moments of your big day.


This styled shoot reminds us that weddings should be warm, cozy and inviting. They can be beautiful and elegant, while still evoking style that makes everyone feel welcome and loved. Embrace warm colors, unique textures and venues that ‘wow’ to create a wedding day so pleasant, you’ll just want to kick up your feet and stay awhile.
