A Chic Vintage Engagement at The Cordelle

February 5, 2016

ANTHONY + SHEENA | engaged
The Cordelle + Pedestrian Bridge Nashville Tennessee

Nashville TN Engagement & Wedding Photographer - IvoryDoorStudio.com - Pat & Mahlia DooleyWhen we met up with Anthony & Sheena at The Cordelle we were so excited to see how elegant and classic their first outfit choice was. Sheena is incredibly crafty and creative, she actually created her headband out pieces of things she had lying around. Doesn’t it look incredible?! We’re obsessed.

Nashville TN Engagement & Wedding Photographer - IvoryDoorStudio.com - Pat & Mahlia DooleyAfter we left The Cordelle we headed to downtown Nashville. Originally we had planned to stop in at a local ice cream shop, but after seeing how busy it was inside we headed over to the Pedestrian Bridge area instead. And we’re so glad we did! It was perfect lighting and there was hardly anyone around.

Nashville TN Engagement & Wedding Photographer - IvoryDoorStudio.com - Pat & Mahlia DooleyThese two are rockstars and the serious face. They have such a soft, tender look and are so comfortable snuggled up with one another. And Sheena’s second dress was just as amazing as the first!! Their outfits complimented one another so nicely.
