Mandy & Ben

As seen on southern livingButterfly Gap Wedding

Today’s wedding at Butterfly Gap Retreat outside of Knoxville, TN, is full of soft blue and white accents, an amazing couple, and a beautiful East Tennessee backdrop! Mandy and Ben’s wedding was June 14, 2014, and we can’t say enough about how gorgeous this wedding was!

Mandy and Ben are one of the most outdoor-loving couples we know! From hunting, fishing, wakeboarding, and boating, these two know how to make the most out of East Tennessee! You might remember their farm engagement photos we took at Ben’s family’s farm last summer. Ben is also an awesome wakeboarder, and you should check out their wedding video below by Milestone Pictures with some amazing footage of him wake boarding!

When Mandy and Ben were looking for their wedding venue, Ben said he only had one request. He wanted their wedding to be by the lake. So, when they found Butterfly Gap, they looked no further! It was the perfect venue for them!

Peggy from Heels & Veils was their wedding coordinator, Jim with Ogle Entertainment was their wedding DJ and provided their wedding reception uplighting, flowers were by Lisa Foster Floral Design, catering was by Bradford Catered Events, their cake was by Magpies, and linens were from White Table. Mandy’s gown was from Wedding Wonderland.

Butterfly Gap Retreat is a bed & breakfast located just outside of Knoxville, TN, in Maryville. Butterfly Gap retreat offers indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception options including an pavilion and peninsula. It is located on 900 acres of forest with a 12-acre pond.

Enjoy Mandy & Ben’s lakeside wedding at Butterfly Gap!
