Boho-chic styled shoot with seasonal fall hues and minimalist details at 618 Ewing in downtown Nashville, Tennessee
This styled shoot is the idyllic inspiration for couples looking for simple, modern and minimalistic details for their wedding. Nestled in charming downtown Nashville, a modern open venue served as the perfect blank canvas.
“The white and black walls allowed us to create and design to fit our vision,” said the photographer.
This minimalist concept came to light in the unique invitation suite, which included a hand-drawn map with a star to mark the location of the venue. The layout of slate, off-white and navy deckled-edge paper was styled with gold calligraphy, pampas grass and natural rocks.
For the bridal look, the model wowed in an ivory lace gown with quarter-length kimono sleeves that added a bit of drama. The dress featured gorgeous beading, an open back and a dramatic plunging neckline.
Her cathedral-length veil complemented the dress beautifully, and a bold berry lip added a romantic touch to the overall look. She carried a foraged bouquet that perfectly tied in cream garden roses, pampas grass, dried flowers and sprigs of fall leaves.
“My favorite thing about this shoot is that we included a sweet goldendoodle named Annabelle,” said the photographer. “Our dog wore a foraged floral piece around her collar that matched the bride’s bouquet.”
The groom went full classic, in a tailored black suit paired with a sleek black tie and white button-down. His boutonniere was a tiny combination of fall-inspired dried flowers in seasonal shades of amber, olive and apricot.
Inside the modern event space, industrial sputnik light fixtures and cement flooring gave the room a contemporary feel. For the ceremony site, the backdrop was a blackboard wall with hand-drawn chalk calligraphy. The floral installation featured two garlands of foraged plants in blush, chartreuse and amber hues.
At the forefront of the reception, a whimsical dinner party was set with a wooden table and acrylic ghost chairs. The table was covered with wispy white and tan linen fabric runners, and the backs of the chairs were engraved with guests’ names.
Dried pampas grass adorned the center of the table, along with warm candlelight from taper candles in mismatched holders. Crystal goblets, charcoal and white ceramic plates, copper flatware and apricot-colored linen napkins were placed at each setting.
Suspended over the minimalist, fall-inspired tablescape, a breathtaking floral installation hung like a work of art. Another unique, art-inspired element of this shoot was the wedding cake. The three-tiered, ruffled cake boasted beautiful navy, tan and ivory textured layers on a baby blue base with metallic gold specks.
The team wrapped up the shoot at a historic War Memorial in downtown Nashville, where the photographer captured radiant portraits of the bride and groom in an abundance of natural light.
“The white columns and pillars of the War Memorial were a perfect setting for this editorial-inspired wedding shoot,” said the photographer.
Congrats to this team of creatives on an inspiring styled shoot!
