Steve + Erin’s Wedding | Ravenswood Mansion | Nashville Wedding Photographer

Steve + Erin are truly one the most fun and laid back couples I have had the pleasure of working with.  Their ceremony took place on a Monday, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that there was not going to be a party. There most certainly was!

Venue: Ravenswood Mansion

Florist: Making Arrangements

DJ: Rick Ryan

HMUA: Josey Hawthorne Baker

Huge thanks to John Yates for second shooting/assisting.

This was my first time photographing at Ravenswood Mansion and boy oh boy it’s such a beautiful historic venue and the perfect spot for a wedding!

Just look at this beautiful dress and the fantastic decor!

Steve and Erin got ready in the rooms across from each other so I was careful to make sure they didn’t see each other.

Before their First Look Steve and Erin exchanged cards and Steve gifted Erin with two champagne glassed with their names and their wedding date etched into them.

I mean, really it’s no surprise that Steve was enamored by seeing Erin in her wedding dress.

Erin told me earlier in the day that she had a surprise for Steve.  Steve is HUGE fan of popcorn, so what better surprise then to have a Popcorn Machine!

It was a sunny, but very chilly day. Steve and Erin managed to make being cold look freaking gorgeous!

We headed back indoors to the warmth and that staircase was just begging to be photographed.

Their ceremony setup was so sweet, elegant and intimate and I loved hearing the live strings. (They even used a part of a Game of Thrones song for their Ceremony… HECK YES!

After we grabbed a few family photos we had a little bit of time before sunset so we set off around the grounds of Ravenswood Mansion to capture a few more images of Steve and Erin.

When you have the time and resources why not create some cool and unusual shots.

Whenever I go get these shots I think to myself, “I hope no one steps on my head while I lay on this dance floor…”

As the night was coming to an end there was one last dance and then a SERIOUS group hug.
