A JUBILANT & MUSIC-FILLED WEDDING AT HIDDEN CREEK FARMS IN NASHVILLE, TN
When one of my sweet bridesmaids (Laura) from my own wedding (June 2016) asked me to be her wedding photographer I immediately jumped at the opportunity since this sweet friend is one of the best humans ever (like seriously hands down, she is such a golden-hearted gal)! Getting to capture Laura and David’s wedding was not only such an honor, but it was so much fun since so many people were thrilled to get to witness Laura and David begin a new chapter of life together.

Tierra: My vision was a Nashville themed wedding, but I wanted to show couples that there’s more to our city than just country music. I really wanted to think outside of the box and showcase what a Nashville wedding meant to me!
Tierra: The theme of the shoot is a Music City Merger. I was inspired by retro/vintage Nashville and the music scene. Some say that Nashville received it’s nickname “Music City” from the Fisk Jubilee Singers, an acappella ensemble from Nashville’s HBCU Fisk University, so I wanted to showcase a young African-American couple who fell in love in Music City! Our venue space is a new Germantown venue, which I felt was quite fitting since it’s on the same street as the University.
Tierra: Where do I begin?! So the color scheme was based off of a retro Nashville souvenir shirt with a burst of teal, burnt orange, yellow, black and white as an accent. Murals are such big part of the Nashville scene, so the custom pop-up mural by Faven Heart Murals helped to create a fun scene indoors. I wanted to feature a variety of mid-century furniture and décor and incorporate different shapes. I absolutely fell in love with the teal Farrah chairs and guitar pick shaped plates from Southern Events . I knew they’d be the perfect fit! We brought in vinyl records and vintage props from local antique stores for the table scape as well. I decided to use buttons for place cards in a retro floral print to really tie in the era and provide a unique alternative for couples. C. Ashlyn Calligraphy also did a beautiful job of addressing our RSVP envelopes in a circular shape. Billy balls totally scream mid-century and retro vibes to me, so I’m glad Echoes of Eden Florals was able to incorporate those throughout the arrangements. We incorporated elements of Nashville and Tennessee with Taste of Perfections’ sophisticated spin on Nashville’s Hot Chicken, with fresh peppers, herbs, and a honey mixture. We used Jack Daniels bottles as candle holders! The invitations by PaperKuts Studio were an ode to the Hatch Print Shop. I could go on and on from the cake to the hair and makeup, I’m just absolutely pleased with how everything “merged” together.
Tierra: The was a big team and that’s exactly how I wanted it to be! There’s so many talented vendors and artists in the wedding industry and I wanted to take this opportunity to showcase some amazing talent in Nashville. I’m so thankful for everyone who contributed to this shoot and helped bring my vision to life! We all had such a blast on shoot day. We all enjoyed the “cocktail hour” featuring a Twisted Lemonade by mobile bar company, Twisted Tongue Nashville.
