Gallaher Bend – Knoxville Wedding Venue
This Gallaher Bend bridal inspiration shoot is one for the spring dreamer. Those who think about nothing other than bubbly pink champagne, pretty blooming roses, the smell of grass after the rain, the sound of chirping birds, romantic twinkling candles, and blue skies with clouds briskly sweeping by.
The day of this spring shoot, it rained all afternoon. So, what did we do? We put on rain boots and utilized both the indoor and outdoor spaces at Gallaher Bend. We transformed the bridal suite into a cozy gathering space, and the chandelier listened from the twinkling candles below.
Leslie with Lillian Ruth Bride brought two stunning gowns for the shoot. The first gown by Jaclyn Jordan has the most stunning lace sleeves with a low swooping top. It puddled beautifully at the bottom, and subtly glistened in front of the windows in the bridal suite. The second gown by Willowy by Watters had stunning floral appliqués throughout the skirt, a sheer bodice, and sift gray accents.
Allison with Live, Laugh, Love Weddings designed a lovely tablescape and dessert table including popsicles, watercolor cake, pink bubbly, and sorbet. The bridal table included a navy linen with a pink runner by White Table. The decorative plates from All Occasions Party Rentals were the perfect touch of blue and gold, paired with the floral table runner by LB Floral. Accent pieces included gold calligraphy place cards by La Happy, stemware from Allison’s grandmother, and gold flatware and taper candles from Gallaher Bend.
“The forests, too, seem kindly familiar; and the lakes and meadows and glad singing streams. I should like to dwell with then forever.” – John Muir
