You’re in for a special treat; allow me to share Audrey and Rob’s historic Rippavilla wedding, once rescheduled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The late September temperature was perfect, and the setting could not have been more perfect, despite the couple having to restructure guest count; also their date and overall wedding plans. I’m just happy that the stars aligned not only for them, but for me as well. Rippavilla is located in Spring Hill, Tennessee; 45 minutes south of Nashville, tucked away in acres of rolling meadows and lush gardens. Bridal prep took place in the guest house portion of the mansion. The ceremony was in the front lawn of the mansion, and the reception was in the garden courtyard. I’ll get right to the point of my documentation of the day; photos!

The ceremony was sweet and full of emotion and laughter. The couples’ Schnoodle, Dublin was an honorable part of the event as well. I paid my fair share of attention to her, being a dog lover myself. After cocktail hour, the couple and guests made their entrance to the reception courtyard, as day transitioned into night. The chefs prepared a multiple course meal, paired with cocktails. I must say the chef’s dishes were delicious, though we had to pass on the cocktails while working, lol. There was a salad course, lobster bisque, crab cake, braised short rib over parsnips, and one other main course I never tried, but I am sure it was divine. DJ Brandon kept the tunes rolling, and I hung back and documented the natural moments of human interaction,
