A Romantic, Lavender-Inspired Wedding at Mint Springs Farm | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Nashville Wedding Photographer at Mint Springs Farm Lavender Inspiration

I had the privilege of photographing a number of gorgeous styled shoots this year, and this was one of my favorites! The details, styling, location, and completely in love couple captivated my heart. I am so excited to get to share with you some of my favorites from this Mint Springs Farm wedding inspiration. Our beautiful day was featured over at The Perfect Palette. Here’s what they had to say:

“With gorgeous captures by Amilia Photography and event styling and florals by Mint Springs Farm, everything about this wedding inspiration is elegant, classic, luxe and utterly romantic.

Mint Springs Farm is a stunning, high-end wedding venue just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. And with so many gorgeous spots on the property? As you can imagine selecting just one was almost impossible. That’s why this dream team ended up showcasing not one but two gorgeous locales on this day. Inspired by soft blush and lavender tones, accented by blackberry and red wine, the first scene was setup on the porch on the Mint Springs Farm’s house. 

Soft, draped fabric was a big highlight of the table scape and mirrored the beautiful movement of the bride’s Hayley Paige gown. A mix of roses, ranunculus, hydrangea and chocolate cosmos brought so much color to this tabletop and how gorgeous is this gold flatware? And these beautiful place cards? Swoon.

The second gorgeous location was rich with overflowing, blooming hydrangeas and overlooked the water–the perfect location to eat dinner and dance the night away with an intimate guest list. As the sun started to set, the bride and groom twirled under romantic bulb string lights, cut their lavender and silver-brushed wedding cake, and sipped on blackberry-infused champagne.”

Enjoy some of my favorites from this luxurious wedding inspiration and get in touch if you’re having your own Mint Springs Farm wedding! I would love to be your wedding photographer.

Morgan & Chad at Arrington Vineyard | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Engagement Session in Nashville by Amilia Photography

The two fabulous people in these pictures might look familiar to you–Morgan and Chad modeled for me back in December for my Christmas Tree Farm Styled Shoot! The Christmas Tree Farm shoot is still one of my favorites, partially because I am so in love with Christmas, but also because Morgan and Chad are just the most fun couple to photograph! These two love each other so much (and aren’t they absurdly gorgeous?!) and I loved Morgan’s outfits from Free People–talk about clothes envy ;)

We did this session at the beautiful Arrington Vineyard for my Custom Workshop! I led another super fun mentoring day with Paige of Paige Michelle Photography. I had so much fun teaching her, and this fabulous session was the perfect way to end the day! 

This is what Paige said about her Custom Workshop: 

Amilia’s custom workshop is a lifesaver! I wouldn’t change anything. It was awesome! Amilia has provided me with a organized system that truly works for me and my photography business. She has guided me in the direction that I need to be successful. She’s a complete sweetheart and I truly enjoyed learning from such a talented photographer/girl boss!

I have a small number of openings for 2016 Custom workshops and would love to talk with you if you’re interested. Send me an email at amilia@amiliaphotography.com to see if this would be a good fit for you.

I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from Morgan and Chad’s gorgeous vineyard session!

Romantic and Rustic Homestead Manor Wedding Inspiration | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Homestead Manor Wedding | Rustic Winter Wedding Inspiration | Nashville Wedding Photographer

It was a brisk, overcast day at Homestead Manor, but everything about this beautiful wedding inspiration is so warm and cozy. This styled shoot was inspired by vintage books, love letters, elegant gold, and carriage rides through the snow. Our couple, Ginny and Houston, snuggled by Homestead’s beautiful indoor fireplace and even rain couldn’t dampen their love for each other as they stayed close to each other under a classic clear umbrella. 

Homestead Manor’s neutral, rustic setting pairs so beautifully with deeper winter jewel tones, and the overcast day made the burgundy and gold color palate pop. Our table was adorned with beautiful gold-touched pieces from Liberty Party Rental. The groom wore a slate blue suit with a burgundy bow tie from Street Tuxedo. The bride was dressed in a romantic, all-lace gown from Fabulous Frocks and carried a gorgeous oversized bouquet filled with greens, pinks, whites, and burgundy florals. The birch bark inspired cake by Triple Crown Bakery added the perfect unique and rustic touch. The beautiful love letters were created by A Drop in the Water and Brynn Boyd did hair and makeup. This styled shoot shows that winter weddings can still be warm, vibrant, and so cozy. 

A big thank you to Homestead Manor for hosting our styled shoot and for Rachel Ann’s Event Design for bringing everything together and creating the beautiful floral pieces!

I hope this shoot makes you fall in love with winter weddings.

Meadow Hill Farm | Wedding Editorial | Nashville Wedding Photography

Meadow Hill Farm Wedding Photographer | Southern Styled Wedding Shoot

I am in love with this wedding editorial at Meadow Hill Farm! My dear friend Jenny is starting her own wedding venue, Meadow Hill Farm, a beautiful property in Columbia, TN with a huge reception barn, indoor and outdoor ceremony sites, a getting ready cottage, a garden pathway, and wildflower fields. The farm is stunning and Jenny’s incredible eye for style and design has really transformed the property. A while back I asked her if I could organize a styled wedding shoot at her venue, and she said yes!

I let the farm be my inspiration for this styled wedding editorial. The wildflowers, barnwood table, and unique touches created a romantic, bohemian, and vintage feel. We loved incorporating as many elements from the farm itself as we could, including the wild blackberries that grow all over the property! Wild blackberries are woven into the table garland, wrapped around our blackberry naked cake, and styled with other gorgeous elements in our shoot. The table set up was stunning and the vintage silver pieces we used for candle holders was such a unique way to elevate the table design.

I am convinced that I found some of the sweetest and most talented vendors in Nashville to collaborate with me for this styled shoot. All of these incredible creatives jumped on board and really made my vision come to life. A huge thank you to The Dress TheoryStreet TuxedoOne10 MakeupVintage Reverie DesignsA Village of FlowersChef PenelopeDesigns in Paper, and Patty Cakes for working so hard to create this shoot. I wholeheartedly recommend each of them to all my couples! Read more about each vendor at the end of the post :) And I also want to say thank you to Shayna and Levi Wiggins, our amazing real couple! They were so much fun to work with and completed the entire shoot.

Vendor Love:

Meadow Hill Farm – The grand opening of Meadow Hill Farm is September 2015! I really can’t say enough about how incredible it is, and how wonderful Jenny, the owner, is. So many amazing vintage items are included with the venue, as well as the amazing hand-made barnwood tables. I can’t wait to photograph weddings there!

The Dress Theory – We used Sarah Seven’s romantic Practically Perfect bridal gown and Gilded Belt. The belt was the perfect touch! The sweet ladies at The Dress Theory were so incredible helpful and let us come in a couple times to find the perfect dress for our shoot. Nashville brides, be sure to check out The Dress Theory in Germantown. It is the sweetest little shop with an amazing selection of dresses.

Street Tuxedo – I love Street Tuxedo’s heather grey suit, and they were amazing to work with! There’s a reason they are Nashville’s go-to place for suit and tuxedo rentals. Another plus is that they have multiple locations around Nashville!

A Village of Flowers – Danielle, the floral designer who contributed her talents to our shoot, created the most beautiful bouquet I have ever seen! She totally got what I wanted for the bouquet, and created one that was so natural and perfectly matched the wildflowers at Meadow Hill Farm. She also created the beautiful floral crown (I want one for every day of the week to wear myself!) and provided the flowers for our naked cake!

Chef Penelope – At the end of the shoot, those of us who were left were sitting in a field in the dark eating Chef Penelope’s delicious food. All the food was so incredibly fresh and creative! Cornbread croutons? What an innovation, and soooo yummy. I’ve eaten a lot of wedding food, and Chef Penelope is not only some of the best catering food I’ve ever had, but just some of the best food. We were all in love! And everyone I interacted with from Chef Penelope was so nice.

Vintage Reverie Designs – Denise was a dream to work with and her table garland was amazing! Table garlands are some of my favorite details at gorgeous Southern weddings, and Denise did such an amazing job creating one that matched the feel of our shoot.

Designs in Paper – Donette from Designs in Paper is so easy and wonderful to work with. I loved the watercolor palate she used for the invitation suite and place cards. She is amazing at creating unique and beautiful paper goods.

Patty Cakes – I love the naked cake trend! Patty from Patty Cakes baked a summery, blackberry naked cake that not only looked amazing in the wildflower field but tasted delicious!

One10 Makeup – The hair and makeup artists at One10 Makeup were awesome! We wanted a really soft, natural look and they did an amazing job.

Fine Art Wedding Photographer Nashville

Juliann and Daniel’s Nashville wedding was beautiful and classic with a twist of New Orleans fun! They had a beautiful ceremony at Woodmont Christian Church, followed by a lively reception at Hermitage Hotel in Downtown Nashville. The highlight of the night was definitely Juliann and Daniel’s New Orleans Second Line exit! It was definitely the most unique exit I have ever had the chance to photograph. I was lucky to get to photograph this wedding alongside the talented Joshua Gull Photography. I hope you love these images as much as I do. Congratulations Juliann and Daniel!
