Wedding at St. Mary's in Downtown Nashville with a Hilton Garden Inn Reception

Courtney and Wesley began and ended their wedding day at the Hilton Garden Inn located in the Midtown Area of Nashville on October 16th.  They began getting ready at the hotel and then the groomsmen and bridesmaids took turns heading downtown to St. Mary's for photos before the ceremony.  St. Mary's is a beautiful and historic church in Nashville.  It served as the first Catholic Cathedral in Nashville and during the Civil War it was converted into a hospital for Union soldiers.

After the ceremony the wedding party headed a block away to War Memorial Plaza where the bride and groom along with several of the bridesmaids actually risked damaging their dresses before the reception in order to get some fun shots in the fountains!  I was really excited about these shots!

The reception at the Hilton Garden Inn was beautiful and there was a really nice view from the balcony where we were able to get a few more bride and groom portraits at dusk.

Following is a link to the proof site where the rest of the photos may be viewed and ordered.


10/10/10 Wedding | Nashville Photographer

Ryan and Lorna booked me for the popular 10/10/10 date this year.  They also had 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen and 10 limos.  Just joking about the limos but I'm sure there was 10 of something else ; )

They held their wedding ceremony at Riverside Chapel SDA Church with their reception at Belmont Mansion.  The bride was beautiful, the flowers were really amazing, and everyone had a great time at the reception!

 These expressions were as a result of someone knocking over a tall vase into the isle as everyone stood up for the bride who was about to make her entrance.  I love the minister's expression!  There are mishaps at every wedding and compared to the bride I once photographed walking down the street and getting splattered by a car driving over a mud-puddle, this one was pretty minor!

Timothy Demonbreun House and Downtown Nashville Wedding Photography

Mike and Miranda were married at St. Edward's Catholic Church on Thompson Lane and held their reception at the Timothy Demonbreun House.  The reception venue is a bed and breakfast and historic home located in the Wedgewood and 8th Avenue area near Zanie's comedy club.  We set up a pink backdrop for the photobooth and picked up all of the pink flamingos from the pool area to set up on the backdrop for some foreground.  I loved the way they turned out!  We were able to get great photos all day but a high point was after the reception when I was able to spend 30 minutes or so with the wedding party on Broadway in downtown Nashville to get some wedding photos with all of the neon lights in the background.

You can find the rest of the wedding photos at the following proof site.
