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 couple decided to have their ceremony at the beautiful Botanical Gardens.  The followed that up with their reception at the Standard.  Both locations provided picture-perfect backdrops for wedding photos and were amazing to work at.

The Knoxville Botanical Center

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.

The Standard

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.  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.
