Wedding in the Historic Union Station of Nashville

Nashville Wedding on a Train by Stephen DeVries_9

Ever go to a wedding in a train depot? The guests at these nuptials in Nashville, Tennessee’s historic Union Station had that rare privilege, as pictured in these images from Stephen DeVries — and they had a ball. Preparing for the big “reveal” ahead of time, the groom keeps his cool…but quickly melts the heart of his bride once they’re face-to-face. Posing on the couch, framed by elegant red velvet curtains, the couple takes a few quick snaps that exude class and style. The bride, in her open-toed black shoes, revels in the lush colors of the classic patterned rug. Then the rest of the party joins the couple, and — as the quote goes — wackiness ensues: the men have to check their text messages one more time, of course!

Prior to the ceremony, the maids and parents join in the fun-loving spirit, mugging before the historic Union Station sign. Commandeering the entire station for the day, the guests witness the vows in a beautiful restored hotel lobby; the couple wanders up to the balcony for a bird’s-eye view of their guests, then promenade down the carved staircase and get down to the “serious business” of cake and celebration. No one’s too shy to dance here — not with the fun addition of glow sticks that bend to make necklaces and even fun glasses. At last, it’s time to say goodbye: with one nifty tip of his fedora the groom takes his new bride’s hand, settles her into a convertible…and drives with her off into their future together.
