Bride and Groom at East Ivy Mansion wedding

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.

Amazing Nashville wedding vendors

To help them achieve their dream wedding, Alexa and Patrick had an outstanding group of vendors. Cassidy Spaulding with Randi Events did an excellent job coordinating their wedding and planning every last detail. Clif Jones with Entertain! provided the music and entertainment. Branching Out Floral and Event Design provided the stunning florals. GLAM Nashville provided the hair and makeup. Dream Catering provided the delicious food for the event. As wedding photographers in Nashville, we are fortunate to work with some of the industry’s best.

The best weddings feature the best couples

All of these vendors did an amazing job and we were honored to be a part of this elegant event. Kelly and I absolutely loved working with Alexa and Patrick capturing their wedding and engagement photos. It is always an honor to take part in such a special event. Thank you, Alexa and Patrick, for letting us be a part of your day. Check out more of our weddings by visiting our home page or our blog.

Nashville Public Library Wedding

We recently photographed the very first Nashville Public Library wedding, and we are so excited to share the images! The ceremony took place at West End United Methodist Church, followed by a beautiful reception at the Nashville Public Library’s Main Library, located in downtown Nashville on Church Street. West End United Methodist’s beautiful courtyard and stunning sanctuary provided the perfect backdrop for photography.  The church only allows photographs to be taken from the balcony during the ceremony, which creates a challenge for photographers. Having photographed many weddings with the same policy, we were prepared with our tripod and long zoom lens and were able to capture the ceremony perfectly.

The reception took place in the courtyard of the Nashville Public Library, where guest were free to wander around and explore the lovely sculptures and landscape. There was a beautiful fountain in the middle which created a lovely ambiance and looked great in the photos! We were so honored to be the first to photograph a wedding at the Nashville Public Library!

Jen and Jonathan were the sweetest couple and it was a pleasure to work with them throughout the wedding planning process. They met and became friends in 2005 while attending the University of Tennessee. After graduation they went their separate ways but stayed in touch and hung out whenever they found themselves in the same town. Finally, in 2013, Jonathan expressed his feelings for Jen and they began dating long distance – eventually winding up together in Memphis. The rest, as they say, is history!

Jen and Jonathan’s wedding was beautifully coordinated by the talented Helen Morisette of Weddings By Helen. The gorgeous flowers were provided by Terry White of The English Garden. The Erik Blue Band played the best music and kept the guests dancing until the very end!
