Back before Covid, I flew home to work on my very first styled shoot, the Oaklands Mansion elopement. There are so many creative styled shoots to pick from however I wanted to create one myself so I could portray who I am in this industry. But before we get into anything else, why did I choose Oaklands Mansion?

I chose Oaklands because I felt like its beauty is overlooked. This was my first time being at Oaklands and let me tell you guys, it is breathtaking. If you adore antiques as much as I do, you will be in awe as you walk through this mansion. So many small details captivate each room. The architecture of the home itself is unlike anything I have seen. Plus, I wanted to give an insight into how an elopement would look there.

Oaklands Mansion elopements start at $500 an hour and are perfect for those who have fewer than 20 guests.   Each room is unique and there are so many options for different styles of portraits. The outside is perfect for your small ceremony and on the back patio is room for a reception area; which would look stunning with candles, florals and hanging lights.

Each vendor did an amazing job at helping with this styled elopement. From the handmade vow books, simple cake and beautiful floral arrangements, everything came together beautifully. I couldn’t ask for a better team to work with. All of their information is linked below.

Overall, I loved every second at Oaklands. If you are looking to elope in Middle Tennessee and cherish antiques and old mansions, then Oaklands Mansion is perfect for you. Head over to my inquire page if you are interested in booking your Tennessee elopement.
