Want to see how a team of Nashville wedding vendors transformed the Mint House at The Reserve into a two-part monochromatic inspired wedding? This styled shoot is here to please! With neutral colors, textured decor, and an indoor and outdoor area to make magic happen, this modern and dreamy aesthetic came to be. With Lindsey Willette Event Design to oversee the design and Gabrielle von Heyking Photographie to capture the beauty, there’s no doubt you’re going to be impressed at how modern and dreamy these looks really are!
From the planner and designer, Lindsey:
Located at the Historic Federal Reserve Building, we styled this indoor/outdoor event space with two different looks. They were modern and dreamy monochromatic. The modern style focused on sleek designs that could be used for weddings, dinner parties, etc. centered around a beautiful fireplace.The Dreamy Monochromatic style focused on using neutrals and textures to bring a luxury feel to the tablescape. All of the elements of the building are original to the historic site, which has now been turned into Mint House, a short and long term stay hotel right in the middle of downtown Nashville.
Tell us about the shoot vision.
Lindsey: I wanted to feature two different looks – Monochromatic and Modern I love the look of an all neutral tablescape and with the amazing original elements of the location (Federal Reserve Building turned into a Hotel) I knew it was the perfect spot to execute both styles
What was the theme and what inspired it?
Lindsey: The theme was definitely modern. With the outdoor style, I wanted to focus on the large outdoor fireplace and tying in those black elements within the seats and flatware. With the indoor monochrome look I bounced off of the neutrals within the original marbled wall which I was obsessed with
What details were used to create the theme?
Lindsey: All rental items came from my friends over at Please Be Seated who are always great to work with. They had the perfect china, flatware, linens, and chairs that I needed to bring this shoot to life. The menus were designed by me and can also be purchased on my Etsy shop! The calligraphy place cards came from Amanda at AmandaScripts and the hand torn paper was such a great touch! The florals were all from Flower Girls Floral Design, all the way down to the individual sprigs on the each place setting.
Can you share any special moments or highlights of the day?
Lindsey: Highlight of the day was getting to work with three of my favorite friendors – Gabrielle von Heyking and Courtney and Jenny from Flower Girls Floral Design. We had so much fun together and I appreciate them so much!
Were there any special requests or unique challenges that you had to work together to overcome?
Lindsey: It did start to rain off an on, which was not great for the candles we had lit on the table outside. We all got a kick out of trying to light them over and over and Gabrielle quickly trying to capture the shot before the wind rain blew the flames out again.
