On an overcast day in May, Tamara and Chris’ botanical wedding came to life against the idyllic backdrop of The Wildflower 301. With sprouting florals, butterfly details and s’mores favors around a fire pit, this wedding was truly a picturesque celebration.
Early in their relationship, the couple bonded over taking walks in the park, engaging in prayer sessions together and exploring the great outdoors. With a shared love of nature, Chris proposed to Tamara at the South Carolina Botanical Garden in Greenville, setting the tone for their next blossoming chapter.
A garden venue was a must-have for the couple, and The Wildflower 301 offered everything they dreamt of. The lush grounds, expansive reception space and enchanting twinkle lights throughout provided a stunning backdrop for their spring wedding.
Standing beneath overcast skies on their wedding day, divine intervention held off the rain during the ceremony. Although worried for a bit, they were able to have their dream outdoor ceremony under the cathedral-style backdrop of the venue’s lush English gardens.
After the ceremony, the celebrations continued in the historic mansion. The timeless architecture and well- preserved interiors of the 1809 house blended effortlessly with the couple’s modern touches, creating a classic and contemporary vision.
Love and celebration intertwined in every corner of this stunning wedding — from the verdant garden ceremony to the sparkler exit. Surrounded by the serenity of nature, Tamara and Chris began their journey as a married couple, embracing beauty that mirrored their own blooming love.
