The definition of a free spirit is an independent or uninhibited person, if that is the case then what would you call it when you two of those independent souls meet and become one? I am not sure of the exact word used to describe it, but the wedding of Harper and Knox is definitely the meeting of two free spirits and coming together to create one beautiful and magical day!
Taking place in Nashville, TN these two love birds set the stage around town. Captured by Fancy this Photography, they made sure to represent Music City by taking pictures in front of some of Nashville’s iconic murals, and near the popular downtown street, Broadway.
Our bride, as with everything she does, wanted to truly encapsulate her and her fiance’s essence, and she made no exception when it came to their attire. The groom wanted a twist on a classic. In his slate navy tux, and blush accessories from Street Tuxedo he is keeping with tradition while giving it a trendy spin.
As for the bride she is a vision in lace. This sweet heart mermaid gown from Posh Bridal Couture isn’t as classic as it first appears. It has it’s own subtle surprise with a simple chevron pattern worked into the traditional lace. Both the cut and the pattern are truly meant for this bride. Pair that with the bold choice of a gold chandelier earring and the look succeeds in bringing the beholders eye up and onto the glowing bride’s face.
If her eyes are the windows to the soul who do you choose to frame them? Makeup for Your Day’s Nashville team stepped in to create this natural but smoldering look. They did a softer more neutral take on a smokey eye, to add drama and to feature her stunning blue eyes, and to keep it clean continued with a velvety cheek and subtle pink lip. For her hair it was all about effortless texture and sweet romance. The combination of crown braid and side chignon provides interest from every stunning angle.
Their ceremony and reception took place a little outside of Nashville at the remarkable Tucker’s Gap Events space. Surrounded by rolling hills, rustics barns and horse filled stable this couple could not have asked for a more soothing scene.
To add to that serenity the bridesmaids worn flowy blush colored chiffon gowns, from Bella bridesmaids, while standing proudly with their soon to be hitched friend, and the best man mirrored the groom in a similar tux with white accessories. All in all this bridal party fell right into the ease of their surroundings and only added to it’s natural beauty.
With the invitations out and the tables set it was time for the reception. Where copper, golds, and other warm hues set the scene, and each table felt like a fall stroll through a local farm, the whole table scape set the scene for a night not to forget. Guest enjoyed a taste of the south with individual homemade pies, and a selection of southern cocktails.
This perfect night came to an end under the open skies but for these free spirits their love had just begun.
