Brides did you know there is a very special place in East Tennessee, steeped in history and rich with Victorian character, that is the perfect venue for eclectic brides searching for something extra amazing for their weddings? Regard the stunning Cardwell Manor with its’ 1890’s George Barber designed Queen Anne home and three acres of lovely grounds:
Cardwell Manor provides a beautiful backdrop for any type of event but most especially for weddings. And, it was the PERFECT setting for a recent Eclectic Styled Shoot utilizing the skills of the many wedding pros who worked to make this inspirational wedding a success. Julie Roberts Photography truly captured the lovely details of this hundred year old property and the moody, boho vibe of the wedding. All the elements which make up a picture-perfect wedding were there: a darling couple, the picturesque venue, a talented photographer, glorious floral arrangements, the most stunning dress & accessories, beautiful tuxes, on point hair & makeup, and delicious food. Yay!
The photo shoot was an engaging and eclectic mix of bohemian and traditional. The pairing of vintage style combined with modern touches highlights the charm and personality of the property, while showcasing the versatility of the venue as a whole. This co-mingling of styles accentuates not only the renovated 1890’s Victorian Manor and upgraded grounds, but also the skills of the many vendors that worked to make this decadent shoot possible. And it demonstrates how an eclectic wedding absolutely rules!
D Garden contributed the absolutely breathtaking & unique floral elements in a traditional Victorian color palette of mustard, vibrant red tones, and varying shades of greens for the shoot.
The lavish bouquet includes tons of greenery which makes the bold colors of the floral elements pop!
How sweet are these bold little bouts?

We are in love with the intricate details of this wedding dress, aren’t you? Just look at all those beads!
We have to say, this adorable couple looked right at home at the Manor no matter where they stopped to pose; among the hedge rows, gracing the front porch, in front of the floral fountains or posing on the glorious staircase.
The swags of greenery and flowers just blow our minds. Wow!
