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.

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.

D.C. Wedding at District Winery

As photographers, there is no greater compliment than being asked to photograph the wedding of someone we know personally. That is the case with this Washington D.C. wedding at District Winery. Several years ago, Dan taught photography at a boarding school in Maryland which the groom, Mao-Tong attended. Mao-Tong is now the third West Nottingham Academy student who’s wedding we’ve had the honor of capturing!

In addition to attending as a student, Mao-Tong returned to West Nottingham after college as and taught for several years. Jill also worked at the school and it is where they met and fell in love! They’ve now moved onto a school in Virginia and were married in our nation’s capitol because Mao-Tong grew up in the area.

Mao-Tong and Jill were married on a beautiful early August afternoon at the District Winery in the Navy Yard area of Washington D.C.  The beautiful venue is nestled in the middle of a hip and bustling neighborhood on the banks of the Potomac. The industrial-style architecture and stunning river views were the perfect backdrop for wedding images.

The beautiful bride, Jill, was cool as a cucumber the entire day! She stunned guests in her beautiful dress from Celebration Bridal in Lynchburg, Virginia. The gorgeous florals were by Helen Olivia Flowers. Hair and makeup were by UpDos For I Dos. The Bridesmaids all wore lovely dresses by Azazie and the Groom and Groomsmen wore tuxes from The Black Tux.

We had a wonderful time in D.C. capturing Mao-Tong and Jill’s wedding. It was a beautiful celebration and we are so thankful to have played such an important role in their big day!
