This classic wedding at The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee is full of beautiful details and wonderful people. Kimi and Derek, the bride and groom, had a clear vision of what they wanted for their wedding. They knew they wanted great photography to capture their day, of course. They also wanted to incorporate elements that had special meaning to them. Their floral decor featured orchids because they are orchid growers themselves. They assembled their own paper products for the programs, menus and more. They even stamped each handmade item with wax for an extra personal touch.
It was important for Kimi and Derek to spend time with their family and friends over the course of the weekend. They kicked off their festivities with an intimate rehearsal dinner followed by rounds of bowling at Pinewood Social. I personally love the atmosphere of Pinewood Social and thought it served as the perfect, low-stress rehearsal dinner venue. It was a great start to the weekend!
Both the bride and groom work in downtown Nashville and knew that was where they would be married. Their wedding took place at The Hermitage Hotel, which itself was significant because the bride’s grandfather frequently stayed there when he served as a Tennessee State Senator.
The Big Event
Kimi and Derek got ready for their nuptials and spent time with their family and friends. This was my first time photographing an event at the Hermitage Hotel and I loved everything about it. The building is steeped in Nashville history and the architecture is truly a city treasure. The veranda, where the ceremony took place, is filled with natural light and beautiful white decor which served as the perfect place for photos. The staff was excellent and made sure the day went off without a hitch!
