Botanical Garden and Arboretum Wedding

Joel and Caetlyn had a beautiful Botanical Garden and Arboretum wedding. The always lovely Knoxville Botanical Gardens are full of summer joy.

They had a traditional Christian ceremony at Graystone Presbyterian Church, but changed into traditional Indian garb for the reception, paying respect to Joel’s family and heritage.

The day was a beautiful blend of cultures with lots of bright colors, hugs and many many tears, and just the peace and grace that the newlyweds bring to everyone around them.

From Botanical Garden and Arboretum wedding venue’s website: The Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum (KBGA) 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.

KBGA is a privately owned and operated garden supported through donations and membership. Thanks to our members and local supporters we are able to offer these beautiful gardens to the public for free!

From the photographer’s website: I’m Angel — your friendly Nashville wedding photographer and official hype woman for the awkward, fun, and genuinely in love couples.

My business is all about capturing emotions — I’m not going to stiffly pose you and your love on your wedding day. Nope — instead, booking with me means you’re signing up for an experience.

You’ll have full belly laughs with me, hear lots of dad jokes, and frolic through fields to chase the sunset. I’ll capture every second of these new memories — and you’ll just be falling in love with each other all over again. Oh, and you’re nervous that you’ll be awkward? I’ll unlock the model inside you, guaranteed.
