Modern Wedding Inspiration at a Historic Nashville Manor

And they lived happily every after...

Our story begins with a lovely couple, Jeff and Sarah, who had a deep desire to become parents. Last summer, I planned a fundraiser to help them with a domestic adoption. The best news? On May 3, they welcomed a lovely little girl into their family!

Our shoot was featured on Every Last Detail - Greenery & Peach Vintage Eclectic Wedding Details. Caley Newberry Photography captured the shoot that starred our lovely parents-to-be as the models. Let's chat about the style shoot, but stay tuned for more on the fundraiser! 

Feather+Oak, stylist, describes the shoot design:

We wanted an intimate family feel, as if the property had been in the family for generations, but we also wanted to modernize it for today's couple. We balanced the home's historical color palette with a romantic color story of fresh greens, pinks, and whites. The use of Civil War era flatware and a 125-year-old cake stand alongside Christina's beautiful modern ceramics marry the past with the present. To further modernize the overall style we created a frothy pink veil to pair with our lovely bride's modest Olia gown. The result is at once historic, modern, and organic

The venue, GranDale Manor, is a classic Southern home with a twist, it was a part of the Underground Railroad during the Civil War. After being neglected for years, the current owners completely restored the home in 2011 and kept the Greek Revival design intact.

Our design began with securing GranDale Manor. The yellow walls, the original fireplace, and a painting of pink roses influenced the details. 

Knowing that greenery was growing into one of the hottest wedding trends, Feather+Oak designed a gorgeous mantle piece with florals from Rachael Ann's Event Design.

A Mint Macaroon was inspired by the painting to create her custom watercolor invitation suite! Pink roses were also incorporated into our stunning cake by Baked in Nashville

We paired Feather+Oak's custom pink veil with a two-piece Jae and Sasha dress by Olia Zavozina. All of our vendors pulled together a wonderful shoot at Feather+Oak's direction (make sure to watch the video below!).

Timeless Wedding Inspiration at East Ivy Mansion in Nashville

 Locklane Weddings & Events, Nashville Wedding, East Ivy

Timeless
adjective

  1. not affected by the passage of time or changes in fashion.

When faced with the question of what their wedding style is, brides are often at a loss for where to begin or have yet to consider the design they want. Choosing a timeless base for your design is a great way to start, whether it is timeless to you or to wedding trends in general. For example, choosing to wed at a horse farm because you grew up around horses, or choosing a historic mansion with beautiful grounds. 

New and updated styles, new technology, and new trends are all great elements to incorporate and embrace when fitting with your style, but those elements that are classic and enduring should also be embraced. 

I dug into my archives for this blog, a shoot from 2014. Because of the timeless elements, I will continue to love it for years to come. I am lucky enough to still work with all of the vendors from this shoot. It really is amazing to come together on a creative project, as well as to serve a client. 

While I typically love to work with an event stylist, this shoot I styled with my photographer, Alyssa Joy Photography. I am a bit obsessed with details and the focus was the color palette of teal, cranberry, silver, and white. The colors were pulled in from everything - the place cards, linen napkin, the bride's jewelry and shoes, the groom's suit and tie, the cake, calligraphy, etc. Some of the items are more trendy, like the teal tie, while others will endure, like the venue and the lace gown.

You can also see this shoot featured over at Wedding Chicks on their Get Inspired Blog!
