Movie Themed Wedding at Capitol Theatre

April and Daniel’s Capitol Theatre Wedding in Maryville, TN

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. No one does it like Capitol Theatre! It is by far the most unique wedding venue in Maryville, and maybe in east Tennessee. From the Cinemagic! Dance experience to the spacious glam of the bridal suite to the Man Cave & Hollywood Lounge, the photo ops are endless. April & Daniel are film buffs had their movie themed wedding at Capitol Theatre.

The Proposal

April & Daniel both love the movie, ‘My Cousin Vinny,’ and visited the little town in Georgia where it was filmed.

“We had always talked about going to visit the Sac O’ Suds convenient store since it’s still open; they even have merchandise from the movie you can buy there. Little did I know I’d be leaving with more than merchandise from the movie.” – April

Cinemagical Wedding Day

The wedding day went off without a hitch. The weather cooperated and April chose to do a first look with both Daniel and her father before the ceremony which gave us plenty of time for photos beforehand. After the ceremony, we headed downstairs to the Man Cave & Hollywood Lounge for a champagne toast with the bridal party. Each table had a specific movie theme instead of a table number. Guests enjoyed favors of freshly popped popcorn, a photo booth, and ice cream treats from the attached ice cream & coffee parlor. Everyone danced the night away under state of the art lighting, lasers, and fog bubbles. April & Daniel were truly stars for a day!

Advice from the bride:

Least favorite: Finalizing the guest list Most favorite: Designing the save-the-date cards, invitations, and programs.

For me it was the look on Daniel’s face as I was walking down the aisle. I felt in that moment so much love and excitement for our future together. He’ll deny it, but he cried lol

The only thing I would change is the time it ended. The whole thing ended way too soon so it would have been cool to make it last longer.

The venue. Daniel and I decided we loved the venue so much that it was worth the price, even if it meant cutting corners on everything else.

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Honestly our whole wedding day went by so fast, there’s so many things I stressed over during the planning process that I don’t even remember on the day itself. Put most of your time and effort into the parts that are most important to you.
