Traditional & Timeless
An Afternoon at one of Nashville's most beautiful historic mansions.
From The Shoot’s Planner and Designer couple, Josiah & Blake Loyarr, founders of Ninth & Everett:
The first time we saw East Ivy Mansion’s poolside patio, we fell in love! We wanted to turn back the hands of time for this shoot, creating the picture perfect vintage inspired wedding. Red lips, Bing Crosby’s Rolls Royce, and a traditional tuxedo, took us back in time to celebrate love and luxury, the way that couple’s would have celebrated decades ago!
East Ivy Mansion has a history as vast as the building itself. Built in 1867 by AG Stanford, the mansion has been home to various owners throughout the years. The East Ivy was one of the very few properties to survive the Great Nashville Fire of 1916, a tragedy that destroyed most of the Italianate and Queen Anne style homes in the area. Although it has been renovated to allow for modern amenities, the estate boasts almost all of its original fixtures. When you consider the Victorian-Era architecture, in addition to the East Ivy’s collection of pristine antique furniture, walking through our doors is almost like stepping back into the annals of history. It is the perfect setting for a southern couple to celebrate their special day in a unique and regal way.
San Francisco based designer, Amy Kuschel, knows a thing or two about timeless looks! We chose this beautiful dress from The Bride Room in Nashville and it was the perfect dress for the shoot. With a serenity colored pool as the background, we decided that silver and rose quartz would be perfect complimentary colors for our tablescape. Waterford crystal candlesticks, Manolo Blahnik pumps and wax seals on each invitation, were small details that made this entire look complete.
