Located just 5 minutes from downtown Knoxville, the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum is a great venue for the bride looking for a beautiful, natural setting. Their sprawling 47 acre property features walking trails, gardens and two miles of charming stone walls that exude an old-world feel. Brides looking to dazzle their guests with a stunning ceremony backdrop should consider the LeConte Meadow where you can say your “I do’s” in front of the breathtaking Smoky Mountains. Then, give your guests a truly memorable dining experience by hosting your reception in the Stone Greenhouse adorned with beautiful ivy-covered walls. Or, if weather doesn’t permit outdoor festivities, the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum also offers indoor event space with their new Welcome Center. This 5,000 square-foot event space features an attached patio and terraced garden, maintaining the essence of the outdoors despite being indoors. Enjoy drinks and cocktails on the patio while overlooking the beautifully manicured gardens. The beautiful setting of this venue offers a variety of unique options for ceremonies, receptions and photos that are truly memorable.
