A Whimsical Knoxville Botanical Gardens Wedding

In June 2022, Carrie & Trevor decided to go ahead and officially have a Knoxville Botanical Gardens wedding before they had their big celebration last weekend. At the first ceremony, it was just their parents, grandparents, and a couple of close friends. There were some health things going on with some of their favorite people and they wanted to make sure that those people got to be there for their marriage. Thankfully, they were and because of this initial ceremony, both Carrie and Trevor felt they enjoyed their big celebration even more.

One of my favorite parts of this Knoxville Botanical Garden wedding was the father daughter dance. Carried walked to her dad and held his hand as he walked down the stairs. Her back was to the crowd and when she turned around, she had tears streaming down her cheeks. She’s getting to dance with her daddy at her big wedding… something she didn’t know would happen or not. When myself and the other guests saw her face, I think we all lost it. It was so sweet and so precious and just so genuine. I was wiping tears between camera clicks and was just so thankful that she has this as part of her story. Her dad is a hoot though and at one point in the dance, in an effort to get her to laugh, he said “I just wanna start dancing like crazy!” She said “You want to go CRAZY??” as she laughed and we all got a little tickled.

On another note, I also feel like I have to mention the food at this wedding. Trevor is the sous chef at Blackberry Farm and actually met Carrie online after she thought she may pursue cooking as a hobby and started following Trevor and Blackberry Farm for cooking inspiration. She ultimately decided to not go that route and is a real estate agent, but she still absolutely loves to cook. They would definitely consider themselves foodies. The first deliciousness that happened as part of their wedding was at their rehearsal dinner at A Dopo. Prior to the meal, Trevor put together some charcuterie boards that were absolutely beautiful and delicious. The meal was then served with a bread and mozz app, two different types of salads to choose from, several different kinds of pizzas, and topped off with some gelato. It was so so so yummy. On the wedding day, Trevor did another charcuterie table that was SO delicious and they had Wells Station BBQ as their caterer. The food was on par for the Iaconis wedding, and rightly so since Trevor is a phenomenal cook!

I’m so thankful these two asked me to be a part of their big Knoxville Botanical Gardens wedding celebration. It was such a fun and beautiful day!
