An Ultra-Violet Styled Shoot at Carnton Plantation | Franklin, TN Wedding Venue

It’s the year of Ultra Violet and I’m loving all of the purple-y inspiration! This shoot at Carnton Plantation was also styled by Jayde Smith, Carnton’s wedding and events manager. The oh-so-lovely backdrop of the historic garden venue paired so well with the lilac inspiration from White Ink Calligraphy‘s paper goods + signage along with the gorgeous florals from Beyond Details. Oh, and did I mention, you’re going to get hungry by the end of this post because the food from Beyond Details looks absolutely delicious in Tina Gionis‘ photos! Keep scrolling to see all of the beauty in this inspirational wedding shoot!

Tell us about Carnton Weddings!

Jayde: Historic Carnton has been a gathering place for ladies and gentlemen over the last two centuries. Bride and grooms can choose to make their wedding a part of our tradition as they say their vows under the one hundred sixty-year-old Osage Orange tree in our restored antebellum garden. Whether you’ve dreamed of a rustic outdoor setting or want more modern amenities, one of our reception locations will complete your vision. To treat your guests to a true back-in-time experience, we will open the 1826 McGavock family home and invite them inside for a walk-through tour and glimpse into the history of Tennessee.

What are some of the great amenities at Carnton Plantation?

Jayde: The pastoral landscapes, restored antebellum garden, the McGavock mansion and rich history Carnton offers can serve as a blank canvas. Bride and grooms are welcome to bring in all of their own decor to truly create their vision, and our team is there every step of the way to serve as a resource for recommendations.
