This wedding at Dara’s Garden in Knoxville is overflowing with spring colors, laughter, and lots of happy tears! Kate and Steven’s Knoxville wedding was April 27, 2013, and we were so honored to photograph their wedding day. Not only are Kate and Steven one of the sweetest couples we know, but they are our dear friends. And photographing the most special day of their lives was such a sentimental and amazing experience!
Kate and Steven were surrounded by their closest family and friends on their wedding day at Dara’s Garden, including their 27-person bridal party. Yes, it was a huge bridal party, but we all know bridal parties are famously large in the South!
Kate’s mother planned a lot of their wedding, including a huge array of DIY details, and a very special surprise. A large cross with stained glass was placed in the back yard of Dara’s Garden and it was absolutely stunning!
Shanna from Ruffles & Rouge did Kate and her bridesmaids’ makeup. The bridesmaids and junior bridesmaids were in springy blue and pink dresses with lovely wedding bouquets designed by Flourish Floral Design Studio and Kate’s mother. Micki and her team from Details Wedding and Events coordinated their wedding at Dara’s Garden, and Jim from Ogle Entertainment rocked the reception and uplighting in the Dara’s Garden reception tent! Event Rentals by Rothchild provided Kate and Steven’s wedding rentals.
