Why Daniel Stowe Wedding Venue is North Carolina's Best Kept Secret

Charlotte, NC has some of the most beautiful and unique venues to get married at – including the stunning Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. Recently, I photographed Gesell and Andrew’s gorgeous wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. I loved spending the day at this venue and wanted to share it with other couples who are planning their own dream weddings!

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden Wedding

Gesell and Andrew actually tied the knot during the pandemic, but they wanted to plan a celebration with their loved ones at a magical place. With the help of my dear friend, Imagine This Events, they brought a dreamy wedding celebration to life at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. Gesell and Andrew’s wedding was full of tenderness and laughter. It was Gesell’s dream to get married at peak spring when everything would be in bloom. Last year at this time, the flowers had not yet come out, but this year everything was out in its full glory. I like to think that the flowers were blessing her on her wedding day! I actually met these beautiful people because of one of the first couples I ever served. That couple was at Gesell and Andrew’s wedding day, so it was a truly special full-circle moment for me, too. Congrats Gesell and Andrew on your forever! 💗
