Decked-Out Woodland Wedding at The Quarry Venue
If you’ve been looking for a wedding like something out of a storybook, you need to look no further! Laura and Matt’s decked-out woodland wedding at The Quarry Venue will give you all the enchantment. It’s no surprise that this bride and groom would choose a wooded wedding theme, as they love to spend their time exploring the natural wonders of East Tennessee. In fact, Matt proposed to Laura on a short hike to Craggy Pinnacle located in the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains. Their engagement photos with yours truly occurred in one of the best places in the world: The Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
Woodland Wedding Theme
Organic, earthy, and clean was the definite vibe for this wedding, and this was especially true for the flowers by Melissa Timm! Laura’s bouquet was a hand-tied cascade mixture of green and grey succulents, white garden roses, white ranunculus, eucalyptus, and other mixed greeneries. The bridesmaids carried a smaller rounded version of the bouquet, while the groomsmen wore white ranunculus and succulent boutonnieres.
A large wooden arbor decorated with rounded balls made from antique hydrangea centered the ceremony while hanging glass vases filled with moss and succulents constructed the aisle. Styling this ceremony location with all these natural elements complemented the beauty of the surroundings of The Quarry. The logs, moss, and succulents certainly look like they belonged at this outdoor wedding ceremony.
And I haven’t even touched the reception decor yet! A sea of earthiness filled every inch of this wooded wedding. Wooden chargers cut by Laura’s father spotted the table. Copper cups and silverware added a bit of pop to the table. And geometric glass succulent terrariums added a bit of modern flair to the entire theme.
Forest Wedding Venue
The Quarry Venue is a unique wedding venue in Knoxville. It’s is filled with an array of features and provides what any couple is looking for. No matter your vision or style, you will find it here — whether it’s a woodland wedding or Game-of-Thrones-inspired bridal photos. Laura and Matt married in one of the most breathtaking settings at The Quarry: The Canyon. The Canyon features 100 ft. soaring wall equipped with a grand walkway and a newly constructed patio.
The Canyon is one of those sites you have to see to truly appreciate. Standing among the soaring walls, you forget you are even near the city of Knoxville. It’s a convenient location that provides all the ambiance for a truly remarkable wedding day. The setting is incredible and beautiful and provides a “WOW” for any couple and their guests.
But, the best part of this woodland and forest wedding venue, is well, the woods! The Quarry Venue sits in the hear of west Knoxville, but once you step on the property, you are transported to an enchanted forest. Ivy and moss dot every inch of the property. So, if you are looking for a grand wedding in the Canyon, or a small wedding in the woods, this is your place.
