Knoxville wedding at Daras Garden

Daras’ Garden Wedding in Knoxville

We’re thrilled to share the nuptials of two of the sweetest people we know! Kelsey and TJ’s sun-kissed evening wedding at Dara’s Garden couldn’t have been more perfect, with a warm summer sunset, lush greenery, an intimate ceremony, and the happiest newlyweds in Knoxville.

Melissa Timm knocked it out of the park with the most lovely altar florals and bouquets, while The Knox Photo Bus was a huge hit, located on the lawn next to the reception tent.

Kelsey said, “The photo bus was one of the best decisions ever in the history of ever.  I was worried if people would actually utilize it, but we couldn’t tear people away from it.  We had a long drive to Atlanta right after the wedding so it was so fun to look at the photo strips and read the sweet notes to TJ on the way to our hotel.  So fun!”

Kelsey and TJ both have an active role in their church youth group, and Kelsey is a teacher, so their reception was full of their friends, children, and families. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and Jim with Ogle Entertainment kept everyone on their feet dancing and celebrating.
