Cheekwood Gardens Wedding, Nashville, TN

Kalyn Bowra and Colin Crosby were married in Nashville, TN with a beautiful outdoor reception held at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. Cheekwood is one of my favorite places in Nashville – it is absolutely stunning. It is the perfect reception venue, in my mind. Of course, I love the the green bridesmaid dresses! This wedding is the epitome of southern class. It has such a fresh and beautiful appeal. It has been one of my favorites to feature by far. AND, Kalyn and Colin are also Vanderbilt alumni.

My favorite part? The lights! The Italian-style lights draw you in to the liveliness of the party! I don’t have too much planned out, I as I have mentioned before, but I WILL have little lights like these at my wedding reception. That I do know :)

Another fun aspect of this wedding? Kalyn was surprised at the reception with a box of butterflies. How neat!

  1. As the mother of the bride, I was very involved in the planning and want you to know that Jennifer at Cheekwood was a absolute doll to work with. She helped us with a wonderful menu and although was obviously busy with many other events, she made us feel like we were special guests. I am kind of a stickler for details and budgets , etc….and she was clear and helpful with all our questions.! She let us know where we could cut costs and helped us arrange some of our little special touches that we wanted to make it personal. I would recommend this venue to anyone!

  2. The location is superb…and the bride’s bouquet is amazing !!!i love this wedding

  3. Wow! What a beautiful wedding and couple. I visited Nashville two weeks ago and we tried to tour Cheekwood but they were closed for an event! The place looks amazing
