Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful intimate wedding at one of most historic and elegant Middle Tennessee wedding venues; Historic Rippavilla. Located in Spring Hill, Tennessee, approximately 45 minutes from Nashville, Rippavilla sits on over 100 rolling green acres. The 1855 built antebellum mansion, gardens, and grounds are open for tours and field trips, and of course weddings and events. The guest house was used as the changing / bridal prep quarters, and on the downstairs level there is a commercial kitchen. The ceremony was held on the mansion’s front lawn decorated with beautiful flowers. In the garden courtyard, the reception took place. There was even limited access to the mansion, and we had free run of the grounds. Tents and shelter can be added as needed. A venue coordinator is part of every event package as well. Easy guest access and easy access to restroom facilities are also well thought out amenities. Without further delay, here are some photos of my favorite venue features.
