You want to make sure you feel comfortable but also like the bride you are! Couture by Tess has a wide range of dresses for you to make sure you feel exactly how you want to feel for your wedding day! Check out this stunning fashion shoot done with Couture by Tess.

Tess Mann Haute Couture is a bridal fashion line with its atelier based in Cookeville, Tennessee that specializes in creating unique and luxurious wedding dresses for modern brides. The brand was founded by Tess Mann, a fashion designer with over 30 years of experience in the fashion industry. The Tess Mann Haute Couture bridal fashion line offers a range of styles and designs that cater to different tastes and preferences. From classic and elegant to modern and edgy, each dress is crafted with the finest fabrics and attention to detail. The brand is known for its use of intricate beading, lace and embroidery, as well as its use of luxurious fabrics like silk, tulle and chiffon. This new collection is not only size inclusive, but also contains modest-friendly options in an effort to provide quality gowns for every bride.

The Parthenon fashion shoot featured Tess Mann Haute Couture’s New Discovery collection.  As a true haute couture collection, New Discovery features the highest quality fabrics and intricate custom-designed hand beading, perfect for the bride looking for a truly stunning luxurious wedding dress. Once the collection debuted, Tess knew that these wonderful designs needed to be photographed in such a way to fit the caliber and excellence of each dress.

“Location scouting for a fashion shoot began with the idea that the location needed to be grand in scale, romantic, and luxurious. The Parthenon, being close by in Nashville, TN, came onto my radar relatively quickly. Its massive columns, beautifully designed bronze doors, and scale seemed to hit all the right points for a fashion shoot location. The Parthenon would set the scene to properly display the New Discovery collection and highlight the true haute couture collection at a level it deserved,” says Tess Mann, fashion designer for Tess Mann Haute Couture.

The Parthenon, located in the Centennial Park of Nashville, Tennessee, is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon temple in Athens, Greece. It is an iconic landmark with the exterior made of concrete and the interior made of plaster, wood, and metal. It is an impressive replica of the original Parthenon in Athens and continues to be a must-visit destination for anyone interested in history, art and architecture.
