Old Romance Styled Shoot at Riverwood Mansion by Ashley Steffens Photography

Moody romance is a great theme for your Nashville wedding! Mixing light neutrals and pastels with pops of dark shades is how Ashley Steffens Photography created the beautiful scene at Riverwood Mansion. The blush spray rose flower crown atop the bride's curly locks, her dark lipstick shade and the sequins on the untraditional yet elegant dress give her look lots of dimension. And all of the brushed teal walls, antique funiture and gorgeous mantles of the historical home give the setting all the more intrigue! Take a look at all of Ashley's photos and read more below about the shoot through her lens…

From the photographer, Ashley of Ashley Steffens Photography: After visiting the venue for the first time, I knew I wanted the look of this styled shoot to be ethereal & elegant, just like Riverwood Mansion. From the second I walked in the door I felt like I was in an old romantic movie, so that is how I wanted to shoot to feel! This styled shoot was inspired by the romance of Riverwood Mansion. When I originally saw the space, I knew the bright teal walls and window lighting had the potential to be one of the most stunning settings I have shot in. The fireplace lent itself to a romantic candlelit setting and neutral complimentary tones. Neutral tones were used to create an “Old Romance” feel.  We told the florist to create something elegant and neutral in order to create a sophisticated, beautiful scene. It couldn't have gone any better!
