There’s no place like Cheekwood Estate. No, really! There’s not! We photographed Tish and Andrews session right next to a mansion sitting on the premises of Cheekwood. “Wait, there’s a mansion on the premises?” I know— I didn’t know it either.
Now, lets talk about the most beautiful venue in Nashville, Cheekwood Estate and Gardens.
Here’s a little history lesson on the glorious estate.
Straight from Cheekwood’s Website
Cheekwood is a 55-acre botanical garden and art museum located on the historic Cheek estate. Originally built as the home of Leslie and Mabel Cheek in 1929, Cheekwood is one of the finest examples of an American Country Place Era estate. Since being converted into a museum of art and botanical garden in 1960, Cheekwood has presented world-class art exhibitions, spectacular gardens and an historic estate unlike anything else. Each year, Cheekwood welcomes over 300,000 visitors, making it one of the city’s top cultural attractions, with over 20,000 member households. Visitors enjoy family activities, programming for all ages and year-round festivals celebrating the four seasons. From 250,000 blooming bulbs in the spring to one mile of holiday lights in the winter, there’s always something to see at Cheekwood.
Not only is Cheekwood absolutely beautiful and dreamy, it also makes the perfect backdrop for any wedding or engagement session. Before Cheekwood was a botanical garden and art museum, the mansion belonged to a couple named Leslie and Mable Cheek in 1929. It wasn’t until the year 1960, this 55 area property would be turned into the museum and garden that people all over the world come to visit. This my friends is yet another hidden gem in Nashville, Tennessee. A must see for all!
Cheekwood Estate and Garden is a highly desirable venue for most brides and grooms not only for the Nashville bride and groom but also for a bride and groom looking to elope. Not to mention, it is the perfect setting for surprise proposals, engagement sessions, showers rehearsal dinners and of course, weddings.
