Timeless Wedding Inspiration at East Ivy Mansion in Nashville

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.

Erin & Doug's December Cordelle I Dos

Erin and Doug planned their wedding from Indianapolis, joining the trend of couples choosing Nashville for a destination wedding. Their love for the city drew them here to say their I Dos.

They had already picked out their venue when we began working together, but it is one of my absolute favorites - The Cordelle in downtown Nashville. We carefully chose all of their other vendors to fit their elegant style and that of the venue, which included an emphasis on natural materials. With a smaller guest list and some older guests, we decided to create comfortable seating areas for both the cocktail hour and reception. The notes of comfort, warm tones, and tasty beverages helped knock some of the chill off the December evening.
