Winter Wedding Inspiration at The Hermitage

Fall and Spring weddings are the most popular in Nashville, but I think Winter weddings might produce some of the most dramatic and romantic photos. The landscape looks so ethereal in the winter lighting, and the white wedding gowns just stand out so beautifully. After scrolling through some photos from a couple of Winter weddings at The Hermitage I think you'll agree!
