Best of Nashville Bride Guide 2018: Styled Shoots | Nashville Styled Shoot

I’m so incredibly impressed with all of the creativity behind the many styled shoots Nashville area wedding vendors put together in 2018! From elopements in the woods to royal wedding flair, the inspiration vendors created for brides to be is absolutely stunning! Keep reading below to see my picks for Nashville Bride Guide’s top styled shoots of 2018

1. Royal Wedding Elopement Styled Shoot

The royal wedding happened earlier this spring and I really wanted to design a royal wedding styled shoot with my Nashville Bride Guide vendors centered around this theme. However, it would be an elopement styled shoot! We created a traditional scene with elegant elements sprinkled in with a few wow-factors like a floral staircase!

2. 70s Pop-up Elopement Styled Shoot

For the love of all things boho, Carrie of Swak Photography has really set the bar high with this boho wedding styled shoot in the 12 South neighborhood! The 70s vibe is so on par with model (influencer) Affectionately Audrey and her bf IRL Isaiah Stratton (known for his acting in shows like Homeland and MacGyver).

3. A Hipster Chic Barn Wedding Styled Shoot by Chancey Charm

Be still my hipster heart! All of the details in this hipster chic styled shoot from Chancey Charm are sensational! Dark jewel tones and trendy elements were used in this barn styled shoot at Allenbrooke Farms.

4. Woodsy Bridal Styled Shoot with Christen Whitney of The Bachelor

This woodsy styled shoot that Nashville Bride Guide (me!), Petals & Fieldsand Emily Anne Photo Art put together this past fall. We decided on a bridal portrait shoot featuring influencer and Bachelor contestant Christen Whitney with a small table scape and a bohemian feel. Emily Anne took us out to The Foundry‘s Joelton property to capture some gorgeous fall light and style a faux wedding beneath the trees.

5. A Moody Vintage Styled Shoot by Fanciful Ink + Makeup by Katie Laine Thornton

This beautiful moody vintage styled shoot was so carefully put together by some awesome vendors! The model bride’s modern meets vintage look was beautifully styled by Makeup by Katie-Laine Thornton. While invitation designer Fanciful Ink created a gorgeous copper, olive and lavender invitations suite to compliment the decor.

6. A Bright, Romantic Styled Shoot at The Estate at Cherokee Dock

What do you get when you mix local models + celebs with a modern table scape and a gorgeous venue? This beautiful bright styled shoot at The Estate at Cherokee Dock photographed by Smith Studios Photography! Former Miss Tennessee, Allee-Sutton Hethcoat posed as the bride in this fantasy wedding on the Nashville area mansion venue property.

7.Boho Styled Shoot in a Field by Lauren White Photography

The boho trend is alive and well! Lauren White Photography took full advantage of this trend for a recent elopement styled shoot right here in Nashville! The beautiful couple with an edgy look sported some of the most unique boho pieces in these photos including a fringe two piece Rue de Seine midriff bearing gown from LVD Bridal.

8. A Colorful Tropical Wedding Styled Shoot by RSVP Designs

Oh, a tropical paradise would be fabulous right about now! And although we don’t have beaches and palm trees here in Nashville, Raela of RSVP Event Designs created a scene set in Hawaii with this beautiful tropical styled shoot right here in our city! From palm fronds to tropical florals to the bright dragon fruit details, I’m loving this out of the box take on a Nashville wedding!

9. New Modern + All-American Styled Shoot by Woven Events

It’s the new wave of wedding design – keeping it simple and classic with hints of unique modern details. Whitney Gorbett of Woven Events planned and designed this “East Nashville-esque” styled shoot to emulate the modern couple. With her hand-picked team of carefully curated vendors, the scene was set for a modern minimalist wedding.

10. Dark and Modern Styled Shoot by Ryder + Rhoades

A wedding in the woods with modern elements gets a gold star in my book! And this shoot from Nashville area wedding planners Ryder + Rhoades definitely earned that gold star! From the hand built triangular ceremony backdrop to the bamboo chairs, each element exuded a modern yet woodsy look.

Wow – we wrapped such a fun year of styled shoots! I’m so excited to see all of the creativity you come up with in 2019! You can check out our roundup of 2017 styled shoots here – happy dreaming!
