As the holiday season envelops Nashville in a warm glow, there’s no better place to experience the magic of the festivities than Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. Nestled in the heart of Tennessee, Cheekwood transforms into a winter wonderland during its annual Holiday Lights Festival. Amidst the enchanting display of lights and the fragrance of seasonal blooms, an increasing number of couples are choosing this spectacular venue for a proposal that is as memorable as it is magical.



We have gotten to photograph so many beautiful proposals over the years at Cheekwood and love how special each of these proposals are! For their holiday lights proposal package Cheekwood has a specific spot that is reserved just for you. You will walk down an illuminated path behind the mansion that will lead you to the perfect spot to drop to one knee and ask the big question! Afterwards you will share some champagne and continue your tour of the magical gardens. Time slots for proposals at Cheekwood do book up quickly so we recommend checking to make sure the date and time you are wanting is available as soon as possible! Once you have secured that we would love to chat about capturing your proposal with beautiful photographs and video.


Cheekwood Botanical Gardens is renowned for its lush landscapes and stunning botanical displays, but during the holiday season, it takes on a whole new persona. Thousands of twinkling lights drape the trees, creating a fairytale ambiance that captivates visitors. As darkness falls, the gardens come alive with a symphony of colors, making it the perfect backdrop for a romantic proposal. YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7
