Nashville Wedding Photographer - Southern Colonial Wedding Inspiration

Just a reminder: I am currently on maternity leave after having welcomed our son Oliver. As such, my email response will be a little slower than normal. If you're engaged and want to discuss booking your wedding, I promise I will respond within 24-48 hours of your inquiry (just forgive me if my words are misspelled, I might be a little sleep deprived!) and we can get started on building your perfect wedding photography experience. After March 1st, I'll be back behind the camera full swing, right back at creating heirlooms for you. In the mean time, enjoy this post as well as some other pre-scheduled blogs I have in store for you!


Timeless … it’s a word I use a lot to describe my work. It’s one of my creative bulls-eyes and these images from our recent Southern Colonial styled shoot at Homestead Manor really rock that concept.
The Blue Willow-inspired china, the vintage pewter, the Colonial-era furniture … they all recreate the look and feel of the gone by era. But at the same time, the modern lines of the bridal gown and classic two-button tux keep things fresh and modern.
With planner Adriel Nutter, we used the classic blue china pattern as a jumping off point for the concept. I really like the subtle blue touches throughout. Designs in Paper added blue envelope liners and blue-themed U.S. postage stamps to the invitations. Adriel created a gorgeous tablescape featuring Colonial-blue china and centerpieces from Lily Lane Vintage Rentals. And that monogram on the linens just takes it right over the top. Owsley Design also added a pop of blue hydrangea to the floral design.
The shoot’s location tied it all together nicely. Homestead Manor in Thompson Station dates back all the way to 1887. That’s not quite Colonial times but it is one of the oldest, standing historic Confederate homes in Tennessee. The classic white columns of the main house and charming grounds served as a perfect backdrop.
