A downtown Nashville Wedding at Scarritt Bennett & the Hutton HotelEthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-148_flareEthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-142EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-126EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-119EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-118EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-109EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-3Ever since their engagement session, we have looked forward to photographing this gorgeous couple again. Ashley is the type of bride that has such an amazing vision of her wedding day that we couldn’t wait to see all that she had dreamed up come to life! The personal details they put into their wedding were beautiful. Ethan & Ashley have such a chemistry they know how to make each other laugh. And we love that they are so funny because the two of them have amazing smiles! EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-153EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-199EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-198EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-187EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-180The bridal party got ready in their own room at the Hutton Hotel in downtown Nashville just blocks away from the Ceremony site, The Scarritt Bennett Center. Watching 3 generations help one another don their wedding jewelry was beyond precious. It was so natural the way they helped one another with their necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-350EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-325Can you believe this chapel!? The organ pipes, the architecture, the beautiful light! We couldn’t have been happier to be at Scarritt Bennett for this wedding! It was the perfect venue for these two, and made all that more special by the fact Ethan’s sister had been married in the same chapel.EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-286EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-232EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-230EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-229

Ethan gifted the groomsmen with the most perfect socks ever! Check these out. These men know style. And they relaxed in style at Scarritt Bennett as they got ready for Ethan to see his bride for the first time.EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-507EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-474EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-444

They had a fabulous photobooth that all of the guests simply loved! It was a fun favor for the guests to take home a strip of photos for themselves and a cute guest book for them to put the second copy in with a note for Ashley & Ethan to read!

Though, in the end, it was the little ones who were occupying the dance floor! They certainly had some moves.EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-594

Ashley had such a clear vision of her bridal style. Crisp, clean, natural. She has such a elegant beauty, everything she chose to wear accentuated her natural elegance. Look closely, she had the fun touch of a small pink heart added to her manicure!EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-478EthanAshley_IvoryDoorStudio-509

Displayed at the reception were generations of family photos from both sides showing their relatives on their wedding day.


remember that time…

They hired a Rolls Royce to carry them from the Ceremony to the Reception, only a few blocks. Only the vintage car didn’t quite make it! They broke down half way there. Some people would be panicked but these two were cracking up when they entered the Reception Hall. We think they enjoyed the extra time together!


love is sweet
Instead of a traditional cake Ashley & Ethan made mountains of cupcakes for the guests in several flavors. Ethan doesn’t like cake much and instead prefers cheesecake so they made a small tier of cheesecake to cut instead! It was a great idea. And the grooms cake was a brownie cake made to look like a tire wheel with a replica of his motorcycle on top. Completing this dessert buffet were signs declaring how sweet love is.
