Romantic Knoxville Wedding
Knoxville Botanical Gardens and The Standard Wedding
I am so excited to share Katelyn & Mitch’s wedding day with everyone. This Atlanta, Georgia couple decided to have their ceremony at the beautiful Botanical Gardens and follow that up with their reception festivities at The Standard. Both locations provide picture perfect backdrops for wedding photos and are literally, a photographer’s paradise.
The Knoxville Botanical Center
Mitch and Katelyn decided to have their wedding ceremony at the beautiful Knoxville Botanical Gardens. The Knoxville Botanical Gardens and Arboretum located in Knoxville, Tennessee and is located on 47 acres of former Howell Nurseries, featuring walking trails, display gardens, unique & historic horticulture and over two miles of distinctive stone walls and timeless buildings, just five minutes from downtown.
We followed up their wedding day with their reception at The Standard, located in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. The Standard is a beautiful and unique event space in Knoxville. Originally built in 1930 for manufacturing, 416 West Jackson Avenue once housed the building’s namesake, the Standard Wilson Glass Company. In 2011, Dewhirst Properties purchased the buildings and began extensive historic renovations. Today, The Standard features an original wood staircase, copper storefronts, exposed brick walls, arched doorways and much of the original trim detail—making the space perfect for weddings, galas, parties, receptions and so much more.
A special thanks to everyone at The Botanical Gardens and The Standard for being so accommodating during Katelyn and Mitch’s wedding day. And lastly, a big thank you to all of the wedding professionals that had a part of making this wedding day amazing for this great couple. I can’t wait to photograph another wedding at two of my favorite wedding venues in Knoxville. Here is a glimpse of their wedding day, thanks for taking a look.
