Hermitage Hotel Wedding

The Plan

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.

The Location

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 as a wedding photographer devon, 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!

Kimi and Derek’s wedding planner did an amazing job organizing all of the details and ensuring a stress-free day. The florists, Rebel Hill Florist, did an incredible job bringing Kimi and Derek’s vision to life. We were so honored to work with all of these fantastic Nashville Wedding Vendors. If you’re planning a wedding at The Hermitage Hotel or anywhere else in Middle Tennessee, please contact us. We’d love to help you create the wedding photos of your dreams. Thank you, Kimi and Derek for letting us be a part of your special day!

East Ivy Mansion Wedding

We are so excited to share this beautiful East Ivy Mansion wedding reception and Church of the Assumption ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee. This was our first East Ivy Mansion wedding and we certainly hope it was not our last. East Ivy Mansion is one of the most incredible venues in Nashville. It is so unique and romantic. We truly fell in love. We also fell in love with our clients, Alexa and Patrick.

Alexa and Patrick wanted their wedding to have the feeling of a romantic garden with an Italian Renaissance flair. East Ivy Mansion, with its amazing courtyards and outdoor areas, was the perfect venue for their vision. There is so much history at East Ivy Mansion and you can totally feel it when you are there. It was the perfect place for Alexa and Patrick to tie the knot. Patrick’s groomsmen were looking fabulous, in their suits and wooden watches.
