The Gardens

Diane and Fred chose the stunning Cheekwood Botanical Garden as the perfect setting for their intimate elopement ceremony.

It was certainly challenging for them to pick a favorite location amidst the expansive collection of breathtaking gardens at Cheekwood. It’s truly the beauty of nature at its finest.



We suspect that Diane and Fred’s favorite garden may have been The Secret Garden. Sneaking away during their Cheekwood elopement, they stole a few snuggles and kisses. These two were just adorable! So in love!!



The History

Fred and Diane were avid enthusiasts of history and architecture. They were filled with excitement as they explored Cheekwood’s historic mansion and grounds. Legend has it that this magnificent abode was purposefully constructed to accommodate a spectacular gilt mirror acquired by Mabel Cheek. The mirror’s towering height necessitated either its sale or the construction of a new dwelling. Adhering to their promises, Leslie Cheek, Sr. dedicated himself to building a larger house to honor his wife’s cherished possession. By blending their names, preferences, and passions, the splendid estate of Cheekwood came into existence. It derived its distinctive name from Leslie’s surname, “Cheek,” and Mabel’s maiden name, “Wood.”



The First Dance

After a thorough exploration, we anxiously awaited Fred’s signal, as he searched for the ideal garden for their first dance. With their special song queued up and ready to play, we watched for Fred’s confirmation. Once he had found the perfect location the music began. The newlyweds shared their first dance as husband and wife, creating a cherished memory to be shared for generations.



We are thrilled that Diane and Fred selected Elope In Tennessee for their elopement planning. Upon their arrival in Tennessee, all they needed to do was obtain their marriage license. We handled every additional aspect. Choose our services for a seamless elopement experience in Tennessee!
