Bowling Alley Turned Wedding Venue in Downtown Knox?

Yes! You read that right…Maple Hall, downtown Knoxville’s luxury bowling alley, can be rented out for weddings! Sarah & Bradley wanted a low-key wedding with their closest family & friends, and Maple Hall turned out to be such a great choice! The Maple Room (upstairs) is a beautiful place for an intimate ceremony with rustic exposed brick & great natural light for photos. Then, the downstairs basement made for an awesome night of bowling, dancing, drinking, and hanging with friends!

A Beautiful Spring Day with a Beautiful Couple

Sarah & Bradley got married on April 20th & the spring weather could not have been more perfect! This gave us the opportunity to not only take pictures around the beautiful venue but to venture around downtown Knoxville a bit for portraits. Sarah got ready in the Maple Room decked out in a stunning cape that her mom had made for her with ornate little pearls sewn into it. Both Bradley & Sarah had their siblings with them for their bridal party moments. Rainbow Roots killed it with the florals! The ceremony was small & sweet with just a handful of family members present. The vows were so heartfelt that I felt myself tearing up mid-ceremony. After the ceremony, the couple did more photos & then headed downstairs to enter their reception!

The Maple Hall Wedding Reception

Sarah & Bradley entered their reception to a large group of friends & family that had joined to continue celebrating them into the evening! There was a champagne toast, an awesome choreographed dance by the couple, dances with both the father of the bride & mother of the groom, and an awesome buffet dinner. The guests had so much fun bowling, dancing, and laughing together. One of my favorite parts was when Sarah’s dad put on her bridal “cape” to make his entrance!! He was so funny & everyone got a kick out of this! The cake was delicious & the drinks were flowing. It was an awesome night for Sarah & Bradley surrounded by the ones they hold dearest….exactly what they wanted!
