An engagement session at the Quarry Knoxville

The Quarry Knoxville

You’re here because you’re engaged (congrats!!) and in the first stages of planning your wedding, picking the perfect venue. A wedding is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and important events of a person’s life. But planning a wedding isn’t easy, specially choosing the right venue. The Quarry Knoxville is such a unique venue for couples looking for a fun and adventurous wedding day, but still super close to Knoxville!

The History of The Quarry

A wedding is an occasion that leads to the bonding of not just two people but two families. The family-owned Quarry is a venue that started in the year 2012 and is located in the city of Knoxville. Since its inception, the family has managed to arrange and organize hundreds of weddings. Quarry refers to a sort of pit from where the stones etc. are extracted. If you are a person with a keen interest in stones and marbles, the venue can be a treat to your eyes. This because every part of the venue represents Knoxville, aka the marble city.

Your Wedding Day

One of the best parts of the quarry venue is the customizations it offers. It’s a bit difficult to conclude whether the indoors are better or outdoors. Let me now tell you about the features that make the Quarry a perfect venue for your wedding ceremony.

Indoor and Outdoor Accommodations

The Carrara

The Carrara is the indoor space that is designed using industrial steel, providing its stability and was as enhancing the aesthetics of the place. It is spread in an area of 6000 sq. ft, which makes it capable of hosting more than 300 people at a time. The location of this building is chosen strategically so that your guests are able to get a better view of the Quarry.

The Canyon

The Canyon, on the other hand, is an outdoor space meant for those who love celebrating their events in the daylight surrounded by trees. The area is in the form partially filled Quarry, which, when combined with the natural beauty of the area, makes it spectacular. The Canyon has every natural element to make it the perfect venue. The walkway leads to a grand patio which lies beside a waterfall and a little pond.

What can I offer you at The Quarry Knoxville?

Hiring a professional wedding photographer you absolutely love and click with is such an important step to make sure that you can capture all the amazing moments you will have at your wedding. These photographs will act as a ticket for traveling back in time and having a look at all the beautiful memories you created with your loved ones.

I have been working as a professional photographer for over 8 years. Throughout that time I realized that the intimate moments in between the poses were the ones most cherished. My wedding work has been seen in places like The Knot, Wedding Wire, The Carolinas Magazine, Embrace Beauty Magazine, and many other leading industry publications. I’m sincerely grateful for every single one of them, and for the others yet to come. But none of that matters without the experience, the fun, and the results that everyone feels when they look back through their photographs. If you think we’d make an amazing fit contact me today and let’s chat about your wedding!
