Throughout my time as a Nashville elopement photographer I continue to meet some of the most incredible couples, with the most beautiful love stories. Kristin and Dakota were no exception. Their intimate and retro Nashville elopement was a celebration of their love story. It was perfect. We would later explore through Nashville, making several stops for their ceremony at Cumberland River Park, food at Hattie B’s and Corsair Distillery for after wedding drinks.
Getting Ready Together
Before Kristin and Dakota would promise each other forever, they chose to get ready together! I love when couples opt to do things their own way. Not only does it make the event more personal, but the memories are so special to their relationship. Throughout the morning our couple spent time reminiscing on their life together so far, and dreamed of the future. After Kristin and Dakota were ready for their big day, it was off to Cumberland River Park for their ceremony.
Cumberland River Park Retro Nashville Elopement Ceremony
Throughout the ceremony and wedding day, Kristin and Dakota’s main priority was being in the moment together. This was evident throughout their intimate ceremony in the park. The two truly were there for one another, and chose to elope for them. I am such a sucker for a good love story! After our couple was married we explored the park for some fun couples portraits. The genuine happiness found after their retro Nashville elopement was so special.
Hattie B’s + Corsair Distillery
Later, the couple opted to end their wedding day at two of their favorite date night spots, Hattie B’s and Corsair Distillery! It was such a true testament to their story and their love. I loved being there to celebrate this new chapter with them, while capturing it all for years to come. If you’re looking for fun after wedding spots, I can’t suggest Hattie B’s and Corsair Distillery more! It was a perfect way to end their retro Nashville elopement celebration.
