Planning your Nashville Wedding

Nashville is a beautiful location to have your dream wedding. If you are planning to have your ceremony outdoors, here is some information that may be helpful.

Setting your ceremony time
Deciding on when to set your ceremony time will help you determine your arrival and farewell time.  When you have an outside ceremony, choosing a time an hour to an hour and a half before sunset helps ensure your photographer has adequate lighting for pictures if you are not seeing each other before the ceremony and are planning to take pictures afterwards. Remember that the sun sets earlier in the fall, winter, and spring months and later in the summer months. It is helpful to look up sunset times for Nashville. Riverwood staff will have the sunset times available at your first meeting to ensure you choose the ceremony time that best fits your needs.
