Classic Modern Blue Nashville Wedding at The Cordelle by Rae Marshall Photography

Friday, February 3, 2017

Heather + Greg's happenstance love story began in downtown Nashville, so a downtown Nashville wedding was the perfect choice (naturally!). The decor mixed with soft blues, golds and neutrals really set the tone for their classically modern wedding day. And with photographer Rae Marshall's bright and airy photography style, the day was captured beautifully! Not to mention, Greg's 3 year old daughter, Kinley is just too adorable! Take a look at their fairytale day below...

From the bride, Heather: We had an extremely happenstance meeting when he was in a town with a group of guys for a bachelor party (ah!!), and I decided to go out with my friend Courtney after she begged me to go out that night (that's not really my thing). We struck up a conversation at the bar and exchanged numbers. Never did I think we would maintain contact after a night full of laughs and genuinely good conversation... but we did! We honestly started off as friends and it manifested into trekking across states to see, "hey, is this really going to work?"... And here we are. :)

From the photographer, Rae Marshall: The style the Heather had in mind for her wedding day was very natural, ethereal, and real. Heather loved the natural light and simplicity in Lindsley Church for her ceremony and the chic modern style of The Cordelle for most of their images! 

Heather chose a sophisticated blue color in her bridesmaids dresses and mother of the brides. The tulle in the bridesmaids dresses was stunning and really added to the classy feel. Her reception decor also had blue pops in the napkins and calligraphy which went perfectly with the light stone walls of The Cordelle. Finally she topped it off with a softer color with pink pops in the florals and ribbons!

Special moments of the day included Greg's daughter Kinley (who was only 3 years old) decided she wasn't in the mood to have many photos taken of her, which is always a bummer when kids won't cooperate when you need them to! However there was a quick moment where she just couldn't resist gazing in amazement at Heather's incredible wedding dress. It was one of everyone's favorite photographs of the day!

Wow! What a beautiful wedding. The blues and that gorgeous bouquet! I’m dying! I also love the romantic yet modern, fashion-forward wedding dress.
