Dara’s Garden Wedding

Everything about this Knoxville wedding at Dara’s Garden is a celebration of spring! From the color palette to the garden setting to the florals by Lisa Foster Floral Design. Lauren and Taylor wanted a day that was romantic, fun, and they wanted a beautiful garden setting. Add that all up and you get a spring celebration overflowing with blooms and eye candy galore.

Lauren’s two-piece wedding gown was stunning, with a skirt full of layers and layers of flowy tulle! It was perfect for twirling and bounced as she walked. She and Taylor had their first look at the rock quarry at Dara’s Garden, and it was as emotional as it was picturesque.

Lisa Foster Floral Design knocked it out of the park with a stunning ceremony arbor with white drapery, pillars, and overflowing with blooms. The rest of the garden was in bloom too, with nearly every rose bush full of pink roses smiling at this sweet couple!

As coincidental as it was, Taylor’s college graduation was scheduled on the same day as his wedding. So, unfortunately, he missed his college graduation. But, Lauren reached out to two of his mentors at the university to make a special surprise appearance at their wedding reception. They hooded him in front of all their wedding guests and he had his own graduation right there.

Complete with a stunning garden ceremony and a surprise college graduation, it was a day filled with love, fun, and happiness!
