Historic romance wedding ideas in Nashville

sarah ingram historic romance-34

Historic Romance was a concept brought together by photographer SARAH INGRAM and stylist & florist LAUREN EMERSON. Captured in Nashville, Tennessee, they were inspired by-gone days in the South, and the simpler lifestyle that existed in that time.  A time when summer afternoons called for wading in cool creek waters to escape the southern heat. One could be found sinking slowly into a hand crafted easy chair to read after dinner.  Harvesting vegetables from the garden straight to the kitchen for a meal on the lawn as evening settles in. All of the activities that modern life rarely affords for most – all of which sound so lovely in these busy times!

Sarah sets the scene: “A gently rolling creek tucked into lush green trees served as the perfect “summer in the South” backdrop to begin the shoot. Toes were dipped into the refreshing water, evoking emotion only the simplicity of nature can provide. As the sun fell just barely above the trees, dinner was served in front of a historic brick home that sits proudly atop an expanse of green. Southern charm in its simplest form, exactly what Tennessee does best. Lauren chose to use elements including vines and soft lavender roses in her floral design to complement the rich warmth of the brick along with the deep green of surrounding trees. A touch of modern came in with geometric glassware from The 12th Table, contrasted by heavy slate chargers and steel hued linens. Fresh vegetables grown locally by Bloomsbury Farm were sourced at the Franklin Farmers market just down the road. These foods dressed the table, while providing color and texture that married the surroundings as well as the shoot concept.

Despite not being from the area, Tucker & Alyce choose to get married in downtown Memphis cause it’s the place they currently call home. Originally from Southern California and Mississippi respectively, it meant all their family & friends could experience the place the place they now call home. These beautiful images of their day are by MISSISSIPPI WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER ASHLEY UPCHURCH.

With a colour palette of fresh white and green Alyce was going for an organic, french country look – the slate blue bridesmaids dresses from BELLA BRIDESMAIDS most fitting for that. With both the bride and groom being very close to their families, it was a non-brainer to include them in their bridal party.

Alyce tells us “We wanted our wedding day to be a relaxed, beautiful afternoon filled with friends, family and good times. And that it was. The high that day was 85 degrees in mid- summer with a slight breeze. We couldn’t have envisioned a more perfect day to celebrate our marriage. As for the food and live music, we wanted backyard food or food that you could really get down on! Our friends like to eat so that was important to us. We wanted live music because what else is Memphis known for? Our band did not disappoint! They definitely knocked your socks off.”

Organic Bohemian Bridal Inspiration

LeahGolterPhotography26

Bohemian brides are relaxed, confident and have a sense of adventure which is what LEAH GOLTER was aiming to convey with this pretty organic bridal shoot. THE BACKYARD BOUQUET created a bouquet and floral crown that complimented the brides elegant and free spirit and very natural hair & make-up was in keeping with the bohemian style.

Leah tells us, “I wanted to capture my bride as I would before her wedding in the mountain forest. When the wind danced through her soft hair, I couldn’t help but sigh. I captured my bride as if she was exploring and soaking in the gorgeous scenery around her. She isn’t afraid to take of her shoes and run through fields. I love the fierce, yet gentle looks my bride gave me and the motion of her dress as it blew in the wind. The warm golden light was pure magic. My hope for this shoot was to show how brides can keep it simple, let their natural beauty shine through, and still be breathtakingly beautiful.
